Watch easy steps shown in this video about how to download and install Zoom.
What is Zoom?
Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats – and it lets you record those sessions to view later. A Zoom Meeting refers to a video conferencing meeting that’s hosted using Zoom.
Zoom Video Communications, Inc. is an American communications technology company headquartered in San Jose, California. It provides video telephony and online chat services through a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform and is used for teleconferencing, telecommuting, distance education, and social relations.
Zoom for mobile or desktop?
It’s worth bearing in mind not all Zoom meetings are equal – the desktop version is kitted out with a number of features unavailable on mobile.
The mobile version only allows four participants to appear on screen at once (as opposed to a maximum of 49 on desktop in gallery mode) and presenting complex charts and documents is made challenging by the small screen.
Free Zoom or paid?
Zoom is available free of charge to anyone that might like to use it, and the basic free version offers all the facilities most people will need. However, as with anything, you get what you pay for because the free version has its limitations.
Free Zoom offers video conferencing for up to 100 participants, provided the meeting runs for no longer than 40 minutes, at which point attendees are ejected from the conference. If you don’t mind the hassle of dialling back in, though, the host can simply start another call.
