G7X II - Question regarding video and zoom

I'm looking into buying a 1'' camera for my father, who has ditched his SLR stuff and began to enjoy the form factor of smaller compacts. From the specs, the G7X II would be exactly what he is looking for and seems to be a good fit.

One question though regarding video: Is it possible to zoom while recording video?

Zooming in video is an important feature for him, and is a main factor on the buying decision. I'm neither into zooms nor video, so cannot tell myself how much this feature makes sense.

Thanks for your help!
Holger
