BodyWhat is Zoom and how does it work? Plus tips and tricks Maggie Tillman, US contributing editor · 15 February 2021 · Explainer Provides context or background, definition and detail on a specific topic. Zoom - Here's everything you need to know. - And some top tips. Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn Mail Why you can trust Pocket-lint (Pocket-lint) - In 2020, Zoom has become one of the leading video conferencing software apps. It enables you to virtually interact with co-workers when in-person meetings aren't possible, and it thas been hugely successful for social events, too.Make no mistake: Zoom is an essential tool for small-, medium-, and large-sized teams who want to keep in touch and continue their daily workflows with minimal disruption - as well as becoming a firm favourite with individuals, especially around holidays like Thanksgiving in the US and Christmas around the world. What is Microsoft Teams? The chat, share and collaboration app that's part of Microsoft 365ZoomWhat 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. Over half of Fortune 500 companies reportedly used Zoom in 2019 and during 2020 it hit even greater heights, racking up 227 per cent growth over the year.When people are talking about Zoom, you'll usually hear the following phrases: Zoom Meeting and Zoom Room. A Zoom Meeting refers to a video conferencing meeting that's hosted using Zoom. You can join these meetings via a webcam or phone. Meanwhile, a Zoom Room is the physical hardware setup that lets companies schedule and launch Zoom Meetings from their conference rooms.Zoom Rooms require an additional subscription on top of a Zoom subscription and are an ideal solution for larger companies.Zoom's main features. Here are Zoom's core features:One-on-one meetings: Host unlimited one-on-one meetings even with the free plan.Group video conferences: Host up to 500 participants (if you purchase the "large meeting" add-on). The free plan, however, allows you to host video conferences of up to 40 minutes and up to 100 participants.Screen sharing: Meet one-on-one or with large groups and share your screen with them so they can see what you see. Recording: You can record your meetings or events too.How does Zoom work?Choose your plan. Zoom allows one-to-one chat sessions that can grow into group calls, training sessions and webinars for internal and external audiences, and global video meetings with up to 1,000 participants and as many as 49 on-screen videos. The free tier allows unlimited one-on-one meetings but limits group sessions to 40 minutes and 100 participants. Paid plans start at $15 per month per host.Zoom offers four pricing tiers (not including a Zoom Room subscription):Zoom Free: This tier is free. You can hold an unlimited number of meetings. Group meetings with multiple participants are capped at 40 minutes in length, and meetings can't be recorded.Zoom Pro: This tier costs $14.99/£11.99 per month and meeting host. It allows hosts to create personal meeting IDs for repetitive Zoom Meetings, and it allows meeting recording in the cloud or your device, but it caps group meeting durations at 24 hours.Zoom Business: This tier costs $19.99/£15.99 per month and meeting host (10 minimum). It lets you brand Zoom meetings with vanity URLs and company branding, and it offers transcripts of Zoom meetings recorded in the cloud, as well as dedicated customer support.Zoom Enterprise: This tier costs $19.99/£15.99 per month and per meeting host (100 minimum) and is meant for businesses with 1,000+ employees. It offers unlimited cloud storage for recordings, a customer success manager, and discounts on webinars and Zoom Rooms.Optional - Zoom Rooms: If you want to set up Zoom Rooms, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial, after which Zoom Rooms require an additional $49/£39 per month and room subscription, while webinars using Zoom cost $40/£32 per month and host.Zoom app downloads. The desktop app is available for Windows and macOS, while the mobile app is available for Android and iOS. The desktop app offers the best experience.All the apps let you join a meeting without signing in, but also let you sign in using a Zoom account, Google, Facebook, or SSO. From there, you can start a meeting, join a meeting, share your screen in a Zoom Room by entering the meeting ID, start Zoom Meetings, mute/unmute your mic, start/stop the video, invite others to the meeting, change your screen name, do in-meeting chat, and start a cloud recording.If you're a desktop user, you can also start a local recording, create polls, broadcast your Facebook live on Facebook, and more. In other words, the desktop app is more fully featured, although, if you're a free user, you can still get a lot of mileage from the mobile app.Zoom Outlook plugin. As well as the various other Zoom app downloads, it is also possible to use Zoom in other ways. For example, there's a Zoom Outlook plugin that's designed to work directly in your Microsoft Outlook client or as an Add-in for Outlook on the web. This Outlook plug drops a Zoom button right into the standard Outlook toolbar and lets you start or schedule a Zoom meeting with a simple click. Zoom browser extensions. Another tool for quickly starting or scheduling a Zoom meeting comes in the form of an extension for your favourite browser. There is a Zoom Chrome extension and Zoom Firefox add-on that let you schedule a Zoom meeting via Google Calendar. A simple click on the Zoom button and you can start a meeting or schedule one for later with all the information on the meeting being sent via Google Calendar to make it easy for participants to join.  Using Zoom in your browser. If you don't have access to any apps - or haven't installed one - you can run Zoom in a browser. Even if you do have Zoom apps, you can run Zoom in a browser instead. When you click on a Zoom link on a desktop, it will open a quick browser tab that will then launch the app on your device. You can bypass the app and run it directly in the browser instead if you prefer. You might try this if your app isn't working, or if it's out of date or if you're having login problems. Pocket-lintYou just have to close the app and return to your browser showing this dialog - and you'll see the link to join in the browser. TomTom Go Navigation App is a premium mobile navigation app for all drivers, with a three-month free trial By Pocket-lint International Promotion · 9 January 2022 Zoom on your TV. It is actually possible to get Zoom working on your TV so you can have a video call on the big screen. We've written a detailed guide on the various ways you can get Zoom on your TV that is worth checking out. ZoomWhat's the difference between paid and free Zoom?There are a few differences between the paid and free Zoom plans that are worth noting.Free users. You can download the Zoom app on your computer or phone and join any meeting with a supplied meeting ID. You can disable audio or video before joining. You can create a free Zoom account and from there you can create a new meeting, schedule one, join a meeting, share a screen, add contacts, and so on.Paid users. You can sign up and download Zoom onto your computer using your work email if your system administrator has a Pro, Business, or Enterprise account. You'll then want to sync Zoom to your calendar so you can schedule Zoom meetings and invite remote participants to join.If you're setting up a Zoom Room, you'll need a computer to sync and run Zoom Meetings and a tablet for attendees to launch the Zoom Meetings. You'll also need a mic, camera, and speaker, at least one HDTV monitors to display remote meeting participants, and an HDMI cable to share computer screens on a display, as well as an internet cable for your connectionYou'll also need to download "Zoom Rooms for Conference Room" on the in-room computer and "Zoom Room Controller" for the tablet in the meeting room. You can then sync those rooms to your company's shared calendar so employees can see which meeting rooms are available. Zoom security issues and updates. Early in 2020, concerns were raised about Zoom both in terms of security and problems with unwanted guests known as Zoombombers. The company made moves to counter these issues and reassure users about the importance of security and privacy. This includes simple things like removing the meeting ID from the title bar of the call so if users share screenshots online the meeting isn't exposed to future abuse. The company has released a number of updates to the app to boost the security credentials.What are Zoombombers?The rise in prominence of Zoom lead the service to being abused by internet trolls and people with too much time on their hands. Some individuals were hunting down public and insecure Zoom meetings and letting themselves in, then "bombing" other people on the call with graphic videos, pornography and other inappropriate content. We wrote a guide on how to stop Zoombombing a while back and there are various ways you can prevent this from happening, including securing your calls, preventing screen sharing and even disabling video. The team behind Zoom made improvements to secure your calls and keep them safe, and as far as we know, Zoombombing is no longer an issue.Default security updates. Zoom has been updated with security changes to reassure users. One of these has been the requirement for a password as default for Zoom meetings. This, combined with virtual waiting rooms, ensures that only those people who have been invited to the call are actually allowed in. Another step to ensure calls are secure and safe for everyone. ZoomZoom security tools. Zoom has made it easy to manage and secure your meetings when they're happening. There are a range of security tools you can now access with a couple of clicks including the ability to lock the meeting when it has started so no new people can join, remove current participants on the call, muting participants and disabling private chat too. To access the Zoom security tools, you can simply click on the security button that appears in the window when the call is happening or hover over a participant to interact with them specifically - to remove them from the call for example. Reporting other participants. It's now possible to report participants on the call who aren't welcome or are causing trouble. As well as removing them from the call, you can now send a report to the Zoom Trust and Safety team to handle misuse of the system. This will help block them from the service in future and interfering with other calls too. To do so, click the security button on the meeting and then click report. What is OnZoom?In October 2020, Zoom unveiled the public beta for OnZoom. It is described as an online events platform and marketplace that allows paid Zoom users to create, host, and monetise events such as fitness classes, concerts, stand-up or improv shows, or music lessons."We were humbled and inspired by all of the amazing ways the world adapted to a literal shutdown of in-person events amid COVID-19. When business owners, entrepreneurs, and organizations of all sizes had to find some way - any way - to stay the course and continue providing services to their customers, many turned to Zoom," Zoom explained. "OnZoom simplifies that experience."Visit onzoom.com to learn more about how OnZoom works. ZoomWhat are Zapps?In October 2020, Zoom announced Zapps, or apps that both free and paid Zoom users will have access to within the Zoom platform."Think of Zapps as an app store right where you need it most - in a Zoom meeting, room, chat, webinar, phone call, and even your contacts directory," Zoom announced while explaining that Zapps can "improve productivity and help create more engaging experiences."Launch partners include Atlassian, Asana, Box, Dropbox, Slack, Wrike, Coursera, Kahoot!, Kaltura, HubSpot, Chorus, Gong, Cameo, Exer, Slido, Lucidspark, Miro, Mural, ServiceNow, and PagerDuty. For example, you can use the Dropbox Zapp to share the document you've been working on, or you can put up a poll using the Slido Zapp, or you can pull up the Asana Zapp and do updates on team projects.The first of these Zapps will land by the end of 2020. Zoom plans to open the ability to offer a Zapp to more developers in the future. Users will be able to search and add approved Zapps and integrate them directly into their Zoom accounts.Visit zoom.us/zapps to see watch demo videos. Zoom tips and tricks. Create recurring meetings. Zoom lets you create recurring meetings. You can set the call settings you want once and have them be in there every time you plan to meet, and you can join calls using the same URL each time. In the Zoom mobile app, just log in, click schedule, tap the Repeat option, and select a recurrence. For more info on scheduling meetings in general and all of the meeting settings, see Zoom's FAQ on scheduling meetings.How to record Zoom calls as a video. Zoom lets you record calls as videos. You do need permission to do so though. The meeting host will have to enable recordings in settings. It's worth checking your account settings to make sure recording is enabled before you get started.Log into your Zoom accountClick to view Account Settings/Meeting settingsNavigate to the Recording tab and click to enable video recordingIt's worth noting that Zoom admins can activate recording for everyone, for users or groups. There's more guidance on recording settings here.In order to record a Zoom meeting, you must choose whether to use the local or cloud option. Local means you store the video file yourself on your computer or in another storage area. With Cloud, which is for paid subscribers only, Zoom stores the video for you in its cloud storage. But, to record videos, you need Zoom on macOS, Windows, or Linux. When you record a meeting and choose Record to the Cloud, the video, audio, and chat text is recorded in the Zoom cloud.ZoomWhen the Zoom call begins you should see an option to record on the bottom of the screen. Clicking that then lets you record locally or in the cloud. If you don't see the option to record, check your settings in the web app (under My Meeting Settings) or have your account admin enable it. The recording files can be downloaded to a computer or streamed from a browser.During the meeting, you can also see which participants are recording the meeting and those on the meeting will also be told when the meeting is being recorded. When the call is over Zoom will automatically convert the recording into a usable MP4 video file. Recording Zoom meetings on mobile. It is possible to record Zoom meetings and calls on mobile too. However, this is done via cloud recordings so you need a paid Zoom membership in order to use this feature. It's also worth noting that cloud storage is limited, so be careful how many meetings you record while using the mobile app. To record a Zoom call on mobile follow these steps:Open the Zoom app on your mobileClick to join or start a meetingClick the three dot menu on the bottom right of the screenClick "Record to the cloud" or "record"You'll then see a recording icon and the ability to pause or stop recordingOnce the call is over you'll find the recording in the "My Recordings" section of the Zoom siteWhere does Zoom save recordings?When you're recording locally, Zoom call recordings are saved on the Zoom folder on your PC or Mac. These can be found at these locations:PC: C:\Users\User Name\Documents\ZoomMac: /Users/User Name/Documents/ZoomYou can easily access Zoom recordings by opening the Zoom app and navigating to meetings. Once there you'll see a "recorded" tab where you can choose the meeting you need then either play the recording or open it. For cloud storage of your Zoom meeting recordings log in to your account and navigate to the My Recordings page.Find out more about Zoom recordings here.Removing background noise from your Zoom calls. Zoom has introduced settings that allow you to adjust the audio on your call and remove unnecessary and unwanted background noise. In order to activate this, click into the settings, then find the audio options. In there you'll see a drop-down menu with "suppress background noise".There are varying levels of suppression you can add here. The highest will remove as much as possible, reducing issues with fan noises and dogs barking while the lower levels will still let you play background music on a chilled-out casual call with friends. If the built-in noise removal isn't enough there are other options available. How to improve your microphone quality with AI. If you don't have a perfectly peaceful office to work from then you might find things are a bit noisy and less than professional for your calls. Nvidia has a solution with an AI-powered piece of software that can eliminate background noise from your calls. You need to be running Windows 10 and have Nvidia GeForce RTX or Quadro RTX graphics card but if you tick those boxes you can use Nvidia RTX Voice to remove unwanted noise from your microphone. We've written a detailed guide on how to setup RTX Voice here, but essentially you just need to download the software, then set it as your default input and output device  within the app:Pocket-lintAlternatively you can use a free app called Krisp. This will give you 120 minutes a month of really solid noise cancellation on Zoom - or indeed any audio application using a microphone. Like the Nvidia solution above, you just have to install the Krisp app, then select Krisp as your microphone in the app settings. You'll then have clear audio. We've written a detailed guide on how to use Krisp right here.Zoom virtual backgrounds. If you want to jazz things up a bit or don't want other people on the Zoom call seeing the awful mess of your home then there's good news as Zoom offers virtual backgrounds. These are backdrops for your calls that include things like space, cityscapes and ocean-side views too. Best Zoom backgrounds: Fun virtual backgrounds for Zoom meetingsWith Zoom virtual backgrounds, you can also upload an image of anything you want to customise your background. It's available for both iPhone and desktopsHow to use virtual backgrounds on desktop. It's fairly easy to get started with Zoom virtual backgrounds. On a Mac or PC, for instance, just open up your Zoom client, click on the "Setup" icon on the corner, and select "Virtual Background" in the side menu.Zoom provides a few virtual backgrounds. Click on the one you'd like to use. If you would like your own background, click on the plus sign above and to the left of the sample backgrounds, choose an image from your computer, and add it.You can also add a virtual background during a meeting. In your Zoom client, click on the arrow next to the video symbol on the left, select "Choose a virtual background...", and you will see the same Virtual Background page.The company recommends using a green screen and a good webcam to get the best results, but it is possible to use a virtual background without a green screen too. How to use virtual backgrounds on the mobile app. You can also use Zoom virtual backgrounds on the app too. Login to your account and joining a meeting via your phone. Then click the three dots at the bottom of the screen and click the "more" menu. Then click "virtual background" and choose the background you want to use. Add filters to your Zoom calls. As well as virtual backgrounds, it's possible to jazz up your Zoom calls by using filters. These come in two forms and can be found in the same background settings as virtual backgrounds. You can choose either add simple colour shades to your camera (sepia, black and white and such) or select from several Snapchat-eque filters to add cartoon stylings to your camera. These might not be ideal for business calls, but should make things more entertaining with friends and family. Touch up my appearance. As well as virtual backgrounds, Zoom offers the ability to improve your looks when you're on a call. There's a feature called "Touch Up My Appearance" which is useful if you've not had your daily caffeine fix or are struggling with life in the home office. Touch Up My Appearance uses a filter to subtly smooth fine lines and it's meant to look very natural. To use Touch Up My Appearance, go to Settings, and under the Video tab, check the box next to Touch up.Recording transcripts. As well as recording Zoom meetings, you can also automatically transcribe the audio of a meeting that you record to the cloud. And, as the meeting host, you can edit your transcript, scan the transcript text for keywords to access the video at that moment, and share the recording.To enable the Audio Transcript feature for your own use, sign into the Zoom web portal and navigate to My Meeting Settings, then go to the Cloud recording option on the Recording tab, and verify that the setting is enabled. Choose Turn On, if need be. If the option is greyed out, it has been locked at either the Group or Account level, and you will need to contact your Zoom admin.49-person gallery view. With gallery view, you see up to 49 meeting participants at once, rather than the default 25, depending on your device.With the Zoom mobile app on Android and iOS, you can start or join a meeting. By default, the Zoom mobile app displays the active speaker view. If one or more participants join the meeting, you will see a video thumbnail in the bottom-right corner. You can view up to four participants' video at the same time.If you want to view 49 people, you will need the Zoom desktop client for macOS or Windows. Once you have the desktop app installed on your computer, you must go to Settings and click Video to display the video settings page. Then, enable the option "Display up to 49 participants per screen in Gallery View".Zoom screen sharing and using pause share. Did you know that you can not only share your screen (smartphone and desktop) but also pause your screen sharing? Simply press Pause Share when you don’t want your meeting participants to watch you mess around your presentation slides. Learn more here.Share and annotate on mobile. You can share files directly from your phone while in the meeting and use the whiteboarding feature on your phone by writing comments with your finger. To annotate while viewing someone else's shared screen, select View Options from the top of the Zoom window, and then choose Annotate. A toolbar will appear with all your options for annotating - such as text, draw, arrow, and so on.How to rearrange tiles in Gallery view. If you're in Gallery view you can see all the participants on the call at the same time. You also have the option to rearrange these, so if there are key people you always want to be looking at, you can just drag and drop to rearrange the order they are shown.Zoom keyboard shortcuts. It's possible to use various shortcut keys during Zoom meetings to access features or change settings easily. These include a multitude of things but our favourites are:Alt + A or Command(⌘)+Shift+A: Mute/unmute audioAlt+M or Command(⌘)+Control+M: Mute/unmute audio for everyone except the hostAlt+S or Command(⌘)+Control+S: Start screen sharingAlt+R or Command(⌘)+Shift+R: Start/stop local recordingAlt+C or Command(⌘)+Shift+C: Start/stop cloud recordingAlt+P or Command(⌘)+Shift+P: Pause or resume recordingAlt+F1 or Command(⌘)+Shift+W: Switch to active speaker view in video meeting How to share YouTube videos in Zoom. That's right, Zoom will let you share a wide range of content on your presentation, including YouTube videos. This is a bit of a sneaky option, because all you have to do is have the video that you want to share open in your browser. Then, when you want to share that, you just use the share screen option and pick the browser from the options. Note: you'll also need to tick the "share computer sound" option in that box to ensure that everyone on the call can hear the YouTube video as well as see it. You can find a more detailed guide right here. How to run the best Zoom quizThe best games to play on Zoom Writing by Maggie Tillman.

You now know how to use Zoom Meetings. But since there are so many features, it can still be slightly overwhelming! Don’t worry. Here’s a detailed look at three additional Zoom features and how to use them effectively. 1. Screen Sharing. Zoom lets you share your screen with other meeting participants easily. This lets you: Host virtual presentations and workshops.Explain processes in detail.Review work and project documents together with your team.

Here, you can choose to share: A part of your screen or the entire screen.Only your computer’s sound or your microphone’s sound as well.Content from a second camera or content only from your screen. 2. Zoom Phone. Zoom Phone uses the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to help you make Zoom calls over the cloud. This is similar to calling from a phone number, except that the calls here are hosted over the internet. Zoom Phone comes with plenty of additional features to make your calling experience seamless. These include: Integration with CRMs like Salesforce.Call conferencing and delegation.Call recording and voice mail features. However, Zoom Phone isn’t available with the standard pricing plans. Instead, you must pay for it separately. Prices start at $10/user per month and require you to have at least one paid licensed host. 3. Zoom Rooms. Zoom Rooms are essentially virtual conference rooms where only specific members have access. You can use these rooms for various purposes such as: Video conferencingAudio conferencingScreen sharing Zoom Rooms offer various features, such as: One-touch sharing and conferencing.Use up to 12 whiteboards at a time.Digital signage/display around an office. This usually requires additional hardware (multiple webcams, connectors, monitors, etc.) as well as conference room design considerations. Like Zoom Phone, Rooms aren’t available in the standard pricing plans but must be purchased additionally at $49/room per month. Zoom Pricing. Zoom offers four different pricing plans to suit your specific needs: Basic: Free – Host up to 100 participants + unlimited one-on-one meetings + video conferencing + screen sharing + local recording + scheduling via Chrome extensions.Pro: $14.99/month per host – Includes all “Basic” features + usage reports + 1 GB cloud storage.Business: $19.99/month per host – Includes all “Pro” features + supports up to 300 participants + admin dashboard.Enterprise: $19.99/month per host – Includes all “Business” features + supports up to 500 participants + unlimited cloud storage. 3 Bonus Tips for Effective Zoom Video Conferencing. Most in-office teams might not be used to video conferencing and coping with the additional challenges it poses. To make your experience more comfortable, here are three tips that can help team members conduct seamless Zoom meetings and calls: Tip #1: Always Mute Your Microphone Unless Speaking. Make sure to mute your microphone when you’re not speaking. This eliminates any background noise or interference in the audio. To mute your microphone, use the mute button at the bottom left of the Zoom toolbar that appears in the meeting screen and looks like a microphone. Alternatively, you can set your Zoom meeting preferences to mute your microphone at the start of every meeting automatically. To unmute yourself, hit the mute button again or hold your spacebar for as long as you’re speaking. This basic rule allows group meetings or conversations to run smoothly! For more efficient background noise elimination, use noise cancellation tools like Krisp to elevate your audio quality to the next level. Tip #2: Inform Participants Before Recording the Meeting. Before you record any audio or video conference, make sure that all meeting participants: Are aware that they are being recorded.Have permitted you to record them. You could even get this permission in writing or record it at the start of the meeting. Why? Not only does this maintain common courtesy, but it may be required by consent laws and regulations in many companies and regions. Tip #3: Ensure that Everything Is Working Correctly Before Starting a Meeting. It’s extremely common for video conferences to be delayed or get interrupted due to technical snags. To ensure that this doesn’t happen, turn on your device and check if Zoom’s working correctly at least 10-15 minutes before every meeting. And if something’s wrong, alert your meeting host at the earliest (if you’re the host – inform your participants of the same). While conducting a check before every meeting may feel tiring, it’s far better than being embarrassed or annoyed when something goes wrong during your Zoom meeting! Conclusion. Most in-office teams have struggled to communicate effectively during the Coronavirus quarantine. However, using the right video conferencing tool like Zoom can help you bridge most of the gaps well. Just follow the instructions in this Zoom guide and you’ll be all set to host your own video calls to discuss projects, review team performance and engage in virtual team-building activities! And if Zoom isn’t the right tool for you, you can also check out other video conferencing tools, like Google Meet (formerly called Hangouts) and Microsoft’s Skype or Teams. Zoom FAQs. Is Zoom free?

By Charlotte Trueman Staff Writer, Computerworld | Zoom Table of Contents What is Zoom? The basics How to use Zoom What in-meeting features does Zoom offer? How has Zoom addressed security concerns? How is Zoom priced? How does Zoom compare to its rivals? What comes next for Zoom? Show More In some ways, the Zoom videoconferencing app seemed to come from nowhere this year — even though it’s been around since 2013 and has long been highly regarded for its ease of use.Then the COVID-19 pandemic erupted, first in China, then around the world. On Feb. 26, Zoom announced it had already added more new users in the first two months of 2020 than it had in all of 2019. Within a month, as the pandemic spread, office workers suddenly found themselves jumping on daily Zoom calls from the comfort of home in a desperate attempt to keep in touch with colleagues.Fast forward another few months, and many of those same workers are officially suffering from Zoom fatigue.Few companies have seen the kind of growth — and boosted name recognition — as quickly as the San Jose, Calif.-based videoconferencing platform. That growth also led to growing pains. In April — after a slew of security and privacy issues arose — Zoom CEO Eric Yuan announced that the company would stop developing new features for 90 days to address the problems. (This is when “Zoom-bombing” became a common phrase.)Despite the furore, the company that same month announced it had 300 million daily meeting participants.With most countries still in at least a partial lockdown and coronavirus spikes continuing, videoconferencing is here to stay. (Zoom is apparently so sure that’s the case that in July it launched Zoom for Home, an ill-conceived piece of hardware that assumed everyone participating on a video call wants as much of their home in view as possible.) Zoom for Home Zoom for Home marked a sharp pivot by the company into hardware. Despite some missteps, the company appears poised to continue to grow and evolve, making it an important tool for companies looking to ride out the pandemic with workers distributed far and wide. Here’s a look at what Zoom is, does and how it works.What is Zoom? The basics. Founded by former Webex executive Eric Yuan in 2011 and officially launched in 2013, Zoom’s aim is to make videoconferencing easy and accessible. The platform provides video services for enterprise, consumer and educational customers, and its relatively simple setup (compared to competitors) took it to Unicorn status in 2017 and an IPO in 2019.When work-from-home orders swept the globe in March, Yuan said his company would work to support those affected by the outbreak. As the app’s popularity grew, Zoom showed up in surprising places: it became, for instance, the platform of choice for the UK government. (British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made history by holding the first ever cabinet meeting via Zoom, though he was promptly chastized for posting a screenshot of the meeting on Twitter with the meeting ID clearly displayed.) Boris Johnson / Twitter British Prime Minister Boris Johnson held the first-ever cabinet meeting using Zoom; he wound up in trouble for inadvertently posting the meeting ID. The secret to Zoom’s popularity lies in the platform’s ease of use. Setting up a Zoom call requires three things: a Zoom account, a webcam and access to the internet. Zoom encourages users to download the desktop app, although calls can be accessed via a browser with limited in-call features. Mobile users need to download the mobile version on their phone to participate in a call. The platform is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.How to use Zoom. To initiate a meeting right away, you log on to the Zoom.com website, select “Host a meeting” — you’re given the choice to start with video on or off — and away you go. You can also schedule a future meeting using a form where you fill in basic details — enable cameras to be on or off, enable the meeting to be recorded, or set up a waiting room, among other options. Once you’ve scheduled the meeting, you can then share it via your Google, Outlook or Yahoo calendar, input the participants’ email addresses and send an email invite to them. Zoom Zoom has taken steps to make meeting scheduling easier. The maximum number of participants on a call ranges from 100 to 1,000, depending on whether you’re using the free or paid version of Zoom. (The free version also limits meetings to 40 minutes.)What in-meeting features does Zoom offer?Although Zoom prides itself on offering a high-quality meeting platform, the company treads a fine line between adding new features and not overwhelming it with the whims of every end user.“Usability trumps features,” Zoom Chief Product Officer Nitasha Walia said at a 2019 PagerDuty event. “If users can’t use it how it’s intended, it doesn’t matter what features you have — people won’t be there to try them.”The in-meeting features offered by Zoom are designed to be easy to find, easy to use and work as expected. Hosts are given the ability to mute and unmute participants, turn off screen sharing for attendees, make other people joint hosts and rename people once they have dialed in. Zoom also gives users the option to share individual desktop windows rather than an all-encompassing screen share, which is preferable for privacy.For non-hosts, Zoom offers a plethora of in-meeting participation tools, including a whiteboard; a chat window where you can send messages to the group or individual attendees; a "raise hand" option that lets the host know if one of the muted participants has a question or a comment; and reactions so meeting attendees can silently comment via one of two basic emojis.  Zoom Zoom allows closed captioning. For self-conscious users, there’s a “Touch Up My Appearance” option, which promises to “smooth out the skin tone on your face, to present a more polished looking appearance.” And if your device has the right graphics hardware, you can set up a custom background image. Zoom has been working in recent months to bolster third-party integrations. Users of Otter.ai for Teams and Zoom Pro, for instance, have access to Live Video Meeting Notes, which provides meeting participants with live and post-meeting transcripts; users can highlight, comment on and add pictures to the notes via the Otter.ai web or mobile app.How has Zoom addressed security concerns?Zoom’s popularity explosion in early 2020 exposed a number of security and privacy issues that the company had not addressed as it grew. As the number of Zoom meetings skyrocketed world-wide, security and privacy experts took a closer look at the platform.One of the first issues raised involved Zoom’s promise to offer “end-to-end encryption” of video chats. When that feature was called into question, the company had to clarify that Zoom had a different definition of "end-to-end" and "endpoint" encryption that fell short of common expectations.Security gaps also led to “Zoom-bombing,“ where uninvited participants could gain access to a meeting if they knew the meeting number. Other problems included the inadvertent leaking of email addresses and profile pictures; sharing of personal information with advertisers; a 2019 bug in the Zoom Mac app that allowed malicious websites to silently activate users’ webcams and left a localhost web server behind — even after the app had been uninstalled; and a recently discovered bug that let hackers steal Windows passwords.Notably, some of those security issues arose because new users did not understand how to configure the Zoom app to protect meetings. Analysts and security experts argued that security settings should have been enabled by default, especially for a platform that made its name on ease of use.Because of the early spate of problems, a number of high-profile companies including SpaceX, Standard Chartered and the governments of Germany, Taiwan and Singapore banned employees from using Zoom.In response, Yuan on April 1 announced the company would cease work on all new features for 90 days to address the burgeoning privacy and security issues. He acknowledged the company had fallen short of customer expectations, but argued the pandemic had brought in a crush of users “utilizing our product in a myriad of unexpected ways, presenting us with challenges we did not anticipate when the platform was conceived.”Also in response, Zoom released Zoom 5.0 later the same month, adding support for AES 256-bit GCM encryption and dialing up protection for meeting data and resistance to tampering. The new level of encryption is available across Zoom Meeting, Zoom Video Webinar, and Zoom Phone. In May, the company said it had acquired Keybase, a secure messaging and file-sharing platform. Yuan called the purchase a key step toward building a “truly private video communications platform that can scale to hundreds of millions of participants, while also having the flexibility to support Zoom’s wide variety of uses.”Despite the growing pains, Zoom’s efforts to make changes appeared to mollify critics."When faced with questions over security and privacy, Zoom reacted quickly and very publicly to the challenges, including their CEO holding weekly public security briefings," said Wayne Kurtzman, IDC Research Director for Social, Communities and Collaboration. "Zoom was also quick to take actions on changing the defaults that helped address meeting privacy concerns, as well as setting a 90-day plan for deeper actions, and communicating it publicly."How is Zoom priced?Zoom offers a range of different plans, which vary in terms of costs and the number of participants who can take part on a video call.The platform’s basic plan is free and allows up to 100 users per call. (At the start of the pandemic, Zoom waived the 40-minute call limit for users of its free plan. That time limit is now back in place.) Although there are workarounds, there is also nothing to stop meeting participants from ending one video call and jumping straight onto another 40-minute one.Zoom’s Pro plan costs $15/host/month and allows up to 100 users per call. However, unlike the free plan, once you start hosting your video calls via a paid plan, there is no time limit. The Business plan costs $20/host/month, requires a minimum of 10 hosts and allows up to 300 users per call. The Enterprise plan also costs $20/host/month, but requires a minimum of 100 hosts. The Enterprise plan allows for up to 500 users per call, or 1,000 with an upgrade to Enterprise Plus. Zoom Zoom pricing varies by number of participants. How does Zoom compare to its rivals?The videoconferencing landscape is not short of vendors, with companies such as Cisco, Google, Microsoft and Facebook all offering enterprise users a video platform.As a video-only platform, Zoom’s biggest competitors are LogMeIn’s GoToMeeting and Cisco Webex, both long-standing staples of the videoconferencing market. (In a comparative review earlier this year, Computerworld found Zoom's video and audio quality, ease of use and overall user experience were better than the other two offerings.) For enterprise use, the introduction of end-to-end encryption in Zoom 5.0 positioned it ahead of some rivals, although Webex offered end-to-end encryption long before Zoom announced its rollout. Throughout the pandemic, Zoom’s biggest rival has been Microsoft Teams — Microsoft’s all-encompassing collaboration platform that centers around group messaging and shared workspaces while providing users the option to video chat.Launched in 2017, Teams has now largely replaced Skype for Business as the communications hub for the Office 365 and Microsoft 365 suites. Like Zoom, its popularity has grown significantly in recent months; the company in April said the platform has more than 75 million daily active users. And Microsoft has worked to improve its platform and address issues users flagged at the start of the pandemic. One change now allows users to see up to 49 people on a Teams video call; another creates virtual viewing modes that mimic in-person gatherings. Microsoft Together Mode in Microsoft Teams puts video meeting participants in a virtual setting designed to make meetngs more engaging. Because it’s part of Microsoft’s suite of office-worthy apps, Teams already has a toe-hold in companies that either didn’t have a collaboration platform in place already or are looking to limit application sprawl. And it’s worked to help IT admins better manage Teams video chats, again with an eye on enterprise users.What comes next for Zoom?Zoom appears poised to continue its growth, because even after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, large numbers of workers are likely to continue to work remotely. While the company's Zoom for Home announcement was not enthusiastically received, Kurtzman said it was still a smart move to position Zoom as a rival to other, more traditional UCaaS (Unified Communications-as-a-Service) vendors, which often offer hardware as well as software.Kurtzman believes that, with most security concerns addressed, Zoom can now refocus on improving the video call experience for users. He pointed to the company's recent addition of AR features, as an example.“As a result of the pandemic, we are in a period of great public adoption and feature velocity in videoconferencing,” he said. “In the short term, Zoom wants to make meetings more engaging and less stressful, which explains the AR features added recently. Zoom wants to connect with more enterprise systems to remove friction between meetings and work. They already support a rich API set that easily integrates with a number of applications.“Long term, despite the fierce competition, their vision is to reinvent how we use videoconferencing both as enterprises and personally,” Kurtzman said.In doing so, it’s important that Zoom balance the need to be both feature rich and easy to use, not making the user interface more complex than it needs to be.“Zoom has clearly taken advantage of the moment,” Kurtzman said, noting that the company was quick to address security issues as they arose — offering end-to-end encryption is the exception, not the norm, for videoconferencing platforms. That should keep it in the top tier of players in the market.“Unlike previous years, the growth of collaborative applications — including conferencing — enabled multiple market leaders,” Kurtzman said. “Zoom is well-positioned for such a position.” Related: Zoom Video Communications Videoconferencing Collaboration Software Enterprise Applications Small and Medium Business COVID-19 Charlotte Trueman is a staff writer at Computerworld.

See our ethics statement. Share this story. Share this on Facebook Share this on Twitter Share All sharing options Share All sharing options for: A beginner’s guide to using Zoom . Linkedin Reddit Pocket Flipboard Email Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Before the pandemic, many companies were already using the videoconferencing app Zoom for business meetings, interviews, and other purposes. These days, many individuals facing long days without contact with friends and family have moved to Zoom for face-to-face and group get-togethers. This is a quick guide for those who haven’t tried Zoom yet or who aren’t yet familiar with its features (or who have used it with friends but want to start initiating their own meetings). It featuring tips on how to get started using the free version. One thing to keep in mind: while one-to-one video calls can go as long as you want, any group calls on Zoom are limited to 40 minutes. If you want to have longer talks without interruption (and want a few extra features), you can either pay for Zoom’s Pro plan ($14.99 a month); you can also try an alternative videoconferencing app. (Note: there have been reports that the 40 minutes is sometimes extended — at least one staffer from The Verge found that an evening meeting with five friends was sent an extension when time started running out — but there has been no official word of any change from Zoom.) How to register for Zoom. The first thing to do, of course, is to register for the service. You can do this either from your laptop or from your mobile phone. We’ll cover the web service first. Go to Zoom’s signup page. You might first be asked to enter your date of birth. That’s because if you are younger than 16, you aren’t eligible to make a Zoom account unless it’s for school. You’ll next be presented with a few options for creating an account. At the top, you can enter your email in the box labeled “Your work email address.” If you do this, move on to step two. Even though Zoom asks for a work email, a personal email should work fine. In March, it was reported that Zoom leaked some email addresses and user photos via Zoom’s Contact Directory feature because the app could think people with certain email domains work for the same company, but Zoom removed that domain-matching feature in April. You can also create an account by clicking the “Sign in with SSO,” “Sign in with Google,” or “Sign in with Facebook” buttons, after which you just download the Zoom desktop app and move on to step seven. If you entered an email, Zoom will send an activation email to that address. Click the “Activate Account” button in the email or copy and paste the activation URL into your browser to activate your account. On the page that opens up in your web browser, you’ll next be asked if you’re signing up on behalf of a school. Assuming you aren’t, click the “No” button and then click “Continue.” On the next page, fill in your first and last name and a password On the next page, you can invite other people to create a free Zoom account via email. You can skip this step if you want. Next, you’ll be given a link to your personal meeting URL and will have the option to click an orange “Start Meeting Now” button to start a test meeting. If you copy that URL into your browser or click that orange button, you should be prompted to download the Zoom desktop app. Follow the prompts to install the app. After you’ve installed the Zoom app, you’ll see buttons to “Join a Meeting” or “Sign In.” To start your test meeting, click “Sign In.” On the next screen, enter the email and password you just used to sign up for Zoom in your browser. If you registered using the “Sign in with Google” or “Sign in with Facebook” buttons, click those buttons here and follow the prompts. Once you’re logged in, make sure you’re on the “Home” tab, and then click the orange “New Meeting” button in the Zoom app. Your meeting will start. Grid View Start at Zoom’s signup page Activate your account Create your account name and password You can invite colleagues, if you wish You can then try a test meeting After you’ve installed the Zoom app, you’ll see buttons to “Join a Meeting” or “Sign In.”  Sign in to the app And you’re ready to Zoom! If you sign up for Zoom using the mobile app, the process is similar to how it is on the web. (We tested the signup process using the iOS app.) Download the iOS or Android app. When you open the app for the first time, you’ll be presented with the options to join a meeting, sign up for Zoom, or sign in to a Zoom account. Tap “Sign Up.” You’ll next be asked to confirm your age. Once you’ve done that, on the next screen, you’ll be asked to enter your email address, and your first and last name. Once you do, “Sign Up” and you’ll then be sent an activation email. Tap the “Activate Account” button in the email you receive, or copy and paste the activation URL into your mobile browser From there, you’ll be asked to complete the same steps outlined above to make an account, just from your mobile browser Once you get to the screen that has your personal Zoom meeting URL and orange “Start Meeting Now” button, tap either and you’ll be taken directly to a waiting room for your test meeting in the Zoom app. To open the meeting, tap the “Sign In” button at the bottom of the screen. On the next screen, enter your login information and tap the “Sign In” button. Your test meeting will open up in the app Grid View Download the app Sign up Activate your account Follow instructions to fill in account info, invite colleagues, and try a test meeting Start the test meeting Sign in to start using Zoom Start a meeting now. Once you’ve registered with Zoom and installed the app, it’s simple to start a meeting. Using the web app:. Open the app Click on the orange “New meeting” button if you want to start a meeting immediately. A video window will open, and a pop-up window will ask if you want to join the meeting using your computer’s audio and if you want to test the speaker and microphone. (If you don’t want to bother with that question anymore, check the box at the bottom of the pop-up.) Click on the orange button to start a new meeting To invite people to the meeting, find the toolbar that shows up when you move your mouse in the meeting window and click the little arrow in the “Participants” button. When you do, Zoom will open a window where you can invite your Zoom contacts, send an email with information on how to access your Zoom meeting, copy your meeting URL to your clipboard, or copy a longer message with your meeting URL and dial-in information to your clipboard. You can also find your meeting’s password in this menu. When you’re ready, click on the “Invite” button. Using a mobile app. On the app, tap “New Meeting” Choose whether you want to start it with the video on and whether you want to use your personal meeting ID (not recommended; see above). Then tap “Start a Meeting.” To invite people to the meeting, tap “Participants” on the bottom row of icons and then tap the “Invite” button on the bottom of the next screen. When you do, you’ll be able to send a message invite via a variety of services such as Messenger, Messages, or Gmail; invite your Zoom contacts, or copy the invite link to your phone’s clipboard. Again, the orange button starts a new meeting It’s safest not to use the personal meeting ID Schedule a meeting. Using the web app. Click on “Schedule” A pop-up window will give you a variety of options, including the meeting topic, timing, whether you will use a “waiting room” (in other words, whether each participant will have to ask permission to enter the meeting), and whether it’s a recurring meeting If you click on “Advanced options,” you can decide whether participants can join before the host gets there, whether participants should be muted on entry, and whether you want to automatically record the session When you schedule a meeting, you get a variety of options for security and notification. Note: you can choose whether to have a unique meeting ID to be generated automatically or whether to use your personal meeting ID (which doesn’t change). We strongly suggest you do the former; by using a unique ID, you make it much less likely that you be subject to “Zoombombing,” which is when trolls take over your Zoom meetings. The scheduled meeting will be visible on the initial Zoom window, where you can start it or delete it. Using a mobile app. Click on “Schedule” Set the date, time, and time zone for the meeting, and whether it should be repeated. Choose whether you want to use your personal meeting ID; if not, a unique ID will be generated (we suggest you use the latter; see above). Select various security options, such as passcodes and waiting rooms Under “Advanced options” you can choose such options as allowing participants to join before the host, or automatically record the meeting. You can also add it to a calendar. Tap on “Done” (Android) or “Save” (iOS) in the upper-right corner. Tap “Schedule” for a future meeting As with the web version, you have many options for scheduling a meeting Invite people to your meeting. You can invite people to a Zoom meeting in a few different ways. If you’re using the desktop or mobile apps, click or tap on the Meetings tab. From there: On the front page of the desktop app, you should see your scheduled meeting on the right side. Click the three dots to the right of the meeting title, and then select “Copy Invitation” to copy your Zoom meeting’s URL, ID, and phone dial-in information to your clipboard. You can then drop it into an email or text message. You can also click the Meetings tab and click the “Copy Invitation” button on the screen. The “Meetings” button lets you send an invitation On the mobile app, tap the “Meetings” app at the bottom of the screen. When you tap the “Send Invitation” button, you’ll be able to send a message invite via a variety of services such as Messenger, Messages, or Gmail; invite your Zoom contacts, or copy the invite link to your phone’s clipboard. As with the web version, “Meetings” lets you send an invitation You can send your invite via a variety of apps Once you’re up and running on Zoom, make sure to check also out our guides for how to keep your Zoom meetings secure, find keyboard shortcuts, change your Zoom background (here are a few free backgrounds you can use), and record your Zoom calls.

Tips for Using Zoom
BodyVideo conferencing software is the cornerstone of any successful and productive team. Video conferencing tools, like Zoom, allow individuals to meet and work together productively "face-to-face" when meeting in-person isn't possible. This makes meeting remotely much more human, which essential in order to help users feel and stay connected. This year the number of Zoom users has grown rapidly surrounding concerns for coronavirus (COVID-19). It's estimated that the company has added 2.22 million monthly active users so far in 2020, while in all of 2019 it added 1.99 million users. We'll dive into the details of Zoom and everything you need to know about subscribing, getting started, and pro tips for getting the most out of your Zoom experience. In This Post: What Is Zoom? How to Get Started Using Zoom How to Make a Zoom Meeting Private How to Record a Zoom Meeting Tips for Using Zoom What Is Zoom? Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that can be used for video conferencing meetings, audio conferencing, webinars, meeting recordings, and live chat. According to our research, Zoom is the most popular video conferencing solution for companies with 500 employees or fewer, and the second-most popular solution for companies with more than 500 employees, after Skype for Business. According to Zoom's S-1 filing in early 2019, more than half of Fortune 500 companies are using Zoom, and it earned an average NPS of more than 70 in 2018. Next, let's dig into the most common Zoom use cases in a typical workplace: Zoom Meetings and Zoom Rooms. Zoom Meeting. What is a Zoom Meeting? Zoom Meetings are the foundation of Zoom, and the term refers to video conferencing meetings using the platform that allow remote and co-located meeting attendees to communication frictionlessly. Since you you don't need to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meetings, you can even meet with clients or conduct interviews with remote candidates virtually. A "Zoom Meeting" simply refers to a meeting that's hosted using Zoom, and attendees can join the meeting in-person, via webcam or video conferencing camera, or via phone. For example, here's a photo of my team during a Zoom Meeting. We were all attending the meeting remotely, but sometimes, we attend the meeting via our company's conference room, where we pair Zoom with the Meeting Owl Pro to create an inclusive meeting experience for all attendees. Zoom Room. A Zoom Room is the physical hardware setup that lets companies launch Zoom Meetings from their conference rooms. Zoom Rooms are a software-defined video conferencing hardware system for a conference room that allow users to schedule, launch, and run Zoom Meetings with the push of a button. Zoom Rooms require an additional subscription on top of a Zoom subscription and are an ideal solution for larger companies with many employees holding Zoom meetings on a regular basis. To set up a Zoom Room, you need: A computer to sync and run Zoom Meetings A tablet for attendees to launch the Zoom Meetings A microphone, camera, and speaker 1 or 2 HDTV monitors to display remote meeting participants and screen or presentation sharing An HDMI cable to share computer screens on the TV display, and an internet cable to hard-wire your connection Now that we understand what Zoom is and the key terms for using it, let's walk through the steps to get set up with Zoom. How to Get Started Using Zoom. 1. Choose the right plan for your team. Zoom offers four distinct pricing tiers for your business subscription (not including a Zoom Room subscription). 1. Zoom Free: This is the best option if you're testing out Zoom, or if you work solo or with only one or two other people in the same location as you and do the brunt of the meeting scheduling and coordinating. With the free version of Zoom, users can hold an unlimited number of meetings, but group meetings with multiple participants are capped at 40 minutes in length. 2. Zoom Pro: This is the best option if you're using Zoom with a small team with at least one member working remotely full-time or part-time so you can collaborate effectively, no matter where the meeting is hosted. Zoom Pro costs $14.99/month/meeting host, and this tier allows hosts to create personal meeting IDs for recurring Zoom meetings, allows meeting recording in the cloud or on users' devices, and caps group meeting durations at 24 hours. 3. Zoom Business: Zoom Business is best-suited to small to medium-sized businesses with multiple teams regularly scheduling Zoom meetings. This tier costs $19.99/month/meeting host, and it offers cool features for businesses to brand their Zoom meetings with vanity URLs and company branding, dedicated customer support, and transcripts of Zoom meetings recorded in the cloud. 4. Zoom Enterprise: For businesses with 1,000 employees or more, this tier of Zoom offers unlimited cloud storage for recordings, a dedicated customer success manager, and discounts on webinars and Zoom Rooms. This tier of Zoom costs $19.99/month/meeting host. Additionally, if you want to set up Zoom Rooms, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial, after which Zoom Rooms require an additional $49/month/room subscription, and video webinars using Zoom cost $40/month/host. 2. Download Zoom. Once you've selected the Zoom plan you'd like to start using, you can sign up and download Zoom onto your computer to start using it. Users can sign up using their work email if they're signing up for an individual free account, or if your system administrator is signing up for a Pro, Business, or Enterprise account, you'll be invited to sign up for Zoom as one of your company's hosts. If you're setting up a Zoom Room, you'll also need to download "Zoom Rooms for Conference Room" on the in-room computer and "Zoom Room Controller" for the tablet in the meeting room. 3. Sync Zoom to your calendar. Next, you'll want to sync Zoom to your calendar so you can schedule Zoom meetings that appear on your calendar, or so you can easily add a Zoom Meeting link to events on your calendar so remote participants can join. To do this, when you're signed into Zoom, navigate to "Settings," then "Meetings," then "Synced Calendars." Then, toggle on "Sync Zoom Meetings from Calendars," and tap to select the calendars you want to sync with Zoom. By doing this, you can sync calendars with Zoom in both directions, so your calendar client will offer an option to add a Zoom link, and your calendar will show Zoom Meetings you schedule in the Zoom app. If your business sets up Zoom Rooms, you can sync those rooms to your company's shared calendar so employees can see which meeting rooms are available when they go to book. Zoom Rooms can also be set up to display upcoming meetings so employees are cognizant of when they need to start wrapping up, or when they can sit down in a drop-in meeting. Source: Zoom 4. Schedule a Zoom meeting. Now you're set up to get started using Zoom. You can schedule a meeting using Zoom using your calendar client (as explained and shown above), or you can schedule a meeting via the Zoom app. To do this, you can start a new meeting in the moment by clicking "New Meeting," or clicking "Schedule Meeting" to book a Zoom meeting for the future: Then, you can edit the details of your meeting -- for example, you can schedule a recurring meeting, set a meeting password, and choose which calendar you want to sync. Once you're in a Zoom meeting, you can use features like turning your video and microphone settings on and off, inviting other meeting participants, chatting with other meeting participants, recording the meeting, and sharing your screen. Now that you understand the basics of Zoom, use these pro tips for getting the best possible experience. How to Make a Zoom Meeting Private. To address Zoom security issues, Zoom has outlined its security and privacy features. We've explained some of these privacy features below. What Is Zoom Bombing? Zoom bombing, or Zoombombing, occurs when an uninvited individual gains access to your Zoom meeting. They join the Zoom session with the intent to disrupt the meeting. Luckily, Zoom bombing can be prevented by enabling Zoom's privacy settings. How to Prevent Zoom Bombing. 1. Create a password for your Zoom meeting. When you schedule a new meeting, under the Password section, click the checkbox next to Require meeting password. This allows you to type in a strong password that you can share with meeting participants. Participants will be asked to enter the password to join the meeting. Those who don't have the password won't be able to join your meeting. 2. Use the waiting room feature. The waiting room feature allows the meeting host to determine when participants can enter the meeting. The meeting host can admit attendees one-by-one or all at once. When you're signed into Zoom, click the Schedule button to create a new meeting. Click on Advanced Options, check the box next to Enable Waiting Room. 3. Limit who can share their screen. Once your meeting has started, click the up arrow next to Share Screen, then click Advanced sharing options. Under Who can share? select Only Host to make sure the meeting host is the only participant who can share their screen. 4. Lock the meeting. When you're in your meeting, click Manage Participants in the Zoom toolbar. You should see your meeting participants listed on the right-hand side of the screen. In the bottom right-hand corner, click the More button and select Lock Meeting. This prevents any new participants from joining the meeting, even if they have the meeting password. Tips for Using Zoom. 1. Customize your preferences. In your Zoom app, you can set your preferences that will apply to every Zoom Meeting you attend. Some of my favorites are adjusting my video preferences: Check "Touch up my appearance" to add a filter to your webcam so you don't need to put on makeup (or shower) before joining a Zoom Meeting from home (we don't judge), and check "Turn off my video when joining a meeting" so your face doesn't inadvertently appear on a huge projector screen if you're joining an all-hands meeting (this has, unfortunately, happened to me). 2. Record important Zoom meetings. If you're holding a Zoom meeting that involves multiple cross-functional team members, or if you're kicking off a long-term project, or even if one or two members of your team are out of the office, it's a good practice to record those meetings for future reference. You can record meetings to your device or to the Zoom cloud for later reviewing to make sure everyone is on the same page. How to Record a Zoom Meeting. Log into Zoom. Start your meeting as the host by clicking Meetings. Then, under Upcoming, select the meeting you want to start and click the blue Start button. Click the Record button on the right-hand side of the Zoom toolbar. Select either Record on this Computer or Record to the Cloud to begin recording. To stop recording, click Pause/Stop Recording or End Meeting. 3. Sync Zoom with Slack. If your team uses Slack to communicate in real time, your system administrator can integrate Zoom and Slack for easy video conferencing on the fly. If you or a team member are working remotely and are trying to discuss a complicated concept via text alone, it might be a challenge. Instead of going through booking a Zoom meeting on your calendar, you can type "/zoom" into Slack, and a meeting link will appear directly in your Slack conversation for you and your teammate to join. 4. Mute yourself when you're not speaking. This is a basic rule of video conferencing etiquette, but it bears repeating, no matter which software you use. Mute yourself when you're not talking to cut down on distracting background noise. In your preferences, you can set yourself to be automatically muted when you join a meeting. When you're ready to un-mute yourself, you can save yourself a click by pressing and holding the space key if you need to chime in for a brief second. 5. Pair Zoom with the right video conferencing camera. Zoom is probably such a popular video conferencing software option because it's so easy to use: Once you're set up, you only need a few clicks to start talking to your colleagues. To get a great experience for co-located and remote Zoom meeting participants, choose a video conferencing camera for your Zoom Room that will make sure meeting attendees feel included and a part of a conversation. Our video conferencing comparison guide can help you figure out which camera might be the best option for your team. To learn more, read about how to eliminate voice echoing on your next video call.

BodyWhat is Zoom? How it works, tips and tricks and best alternatives By Joel Khalili last updated 9 September 21 Zoom meetings have become a part of everyday life (Image credit: Zoom) Audio player loading… Video conferencing platform Zoom has become a household name after enjoying a breakout year, in large part due to the pandemic and rise of remote working.It's used primarily by businesses to host meetings with remote colleagues and clients, but Zoom is an equally useful tool for keeping in touch with friends and family.Zoom video conferencing is celebrated for its ease of use, high quality video and audio, and collaboration facilities - and the basic version is also completely free of charge.Check out our list of the best collaboration tools aroundWorking from home: the mouse, monitor, keyboard and router you needWe've built a list of the best business webcams on the marketAttendees can join a Zoom meeting without even signing into the app, but must register for an account to host a video meeting. Premium versions support Zoom meetings with up to 1,000 participants, call recording, unlimited phone calls and much more.The Zoom app is available on all major desktop and mobile operating systems, including Windows, macOS, Android and iOS.For more information, visit our how to use Zoom guide.Free Zoom or paid?Zoom is available free of charge to anyone and the basic free version offers all the facilities most people will need. However, as with anything, you get what you pay for.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, the host can simply start another call.It also supports unlimited one-on-one meetings, screen sharing, chat, virtual backgrounds, whiteboard and more.The paid version, meanwhile, effectively removes time limits for group video conferences (pushing the cap to 24 hours), and also allows the host to record meetings to cloud or on-device storage and schedule repeat meetings.  The most basic paid version costs $149.90/£119.90/AU$209.90 per year when billed annually or $14.99/£11.99/AU$20.99 per month, which is a little more expensive in the long-run.Quoted prices do not cover additional add-ons - such as webinar facilities, large meetings (up to 1000 participants) and additional cloud recording storage - which will bump up the price.Zoom alternatives. While the word Zoom is used by some as a byword for video conference, there are many Zoom alternatives on the market capable of rivalling the big name brand.Here are a few alternatives to Zoom that make an equally good choice for businesses looking for the best video conferencing services around:- Microsoft Teams - Google Meet - RingCentral - Skype for Business - Cisco WebExZoom - latest news and guides. 03/09/2021 - Zoom and Box want to make video calls less annoying25/08/2021 - Zoom is getting a makeover for the hybrid working future19/08/2021 - Zoom is coming to your living room18/08/2021 - Data protection watchdog says Zoom is incompatible with GDPR12/08/2021 - New Zoom Focus Mode wants to cut out distractions02/08/2021 - Zoom will fork out millions to settle data privacy suit29/07/2021 - Zoom wants to extend its reach beyond the end of meetings21/07/2021 - Zoom is launching an app store and standalone events19/07/2021 - Zoom snaps up cloud call center firm Five930/06/2021 - Zoom is about to tear down the language barrier29/06/2021 - Running Zoom on Chromebooks is about to get a lot smoother23/06/2021 - Zoom uses Pride month to introduce new pronoun options23/06/2021 - This monitor has been specially designed for Zoom calls10/06/2021 - Zoom wants to power your whole hybrid working world02/06/2021 - Zoom defies critics with bumper Q127/05/2021 - Zoom for iPad is getting a major expansion20/05/2021 - Otter.ai's new tool can transcribe your Zoom meetings19/05/2021 - Zoom is readying an all-in-one platform for virtual events10/05/2021 - Zoom on iPad is getting a much-needed upgrade28/04/2021 - How to use Zoom on a Chromebook27/04/2021 - Zoom meetings are about to get a whole lot more immersive22/04/2021 - Zoom just got a whole host of funky upgrades19/04/2021 - Zoom is launching its own venture capital fund15/04/2021 - That Zoom meeting invite might well be malware07/04/2021 - Another reason you no longer need to Zoom on laptop05/04/2021 - How to use Zoom on Mac - the ultimate guide26/03/2021 - Zoom says remote working is here to stay22/03/2021 - Zoom is about to make video calls even more interesting20/03/2021 - Zoom Escaper gives you the perfect excuse to bail out of calls02/03/2021 - Zoom rounds off bumper year with astounding results25/02/2021 - Zoom says closed captions are on the way05/02/2021 - Think your meeting is safe from Zoom-bombing?

Get to know this popular video conferencing app. By Dave Johnson Dave Johnson Writer Rutgers University Central Michigan University Dave Johnson has been writing about tech since 1990. He's the author of over 2 dozen books and his writing has appeared in Wired, PCWorld, Business Insider, and many other publications. lifewire's editorial guidelines Updated on February 11, 2021 Tweet Share Email Working From Home The Ultimate Guide to Shopping Online The Ultimate Guide to Online Learning at Home The Ultimate Guide to Skype What to Know. Zoom is a web conferencing platform that is used for audio and/or video conferencing.You need a free account to start your own calls for up to 100 people; paid versions can support up to 1,000 people.You can make unlimited phone calls, hold unlimited meetings, and even record both. What Is Zoom? . Zoom is an online audio and web conferencing platform. People use it to make phone calls or to participate in video conference meetings. It was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, a former Cisco executive. Cisco offered the WebEx web conferencing platform, which remains a competitor in the conferencing space today. Yuan's competitor, Zoom, evolved quickly; the service launched in 2013 and had a million users by the end of the year. By 2017, the company had a billion-dollar valuation. It became a publicly-traded company in 2019 and has grown into one of the biggest video conferencing solutions in use today. Currently, research shows that Zoom is the most commonly used conferencing tool ahead of similar solutions like Skype and Google Hangouts.  Getty Images / filadendron What Is a Zoom Meeting? . Though Zoom offers a lot of products and services to enterprise organizations, including Zoom Rooms (which are conference rooms running dedicated software to make conferencing easier), video webinars, and even phone systems, Zoom's core product and the way most people know the service is Zoom Meetings. Zoom Meetings are the audio and video conferences that allow two or more people to communicate online. Zoom Meetings happen in the Zoom app, and can be started and shared by anyone; these meetings can even be started for free via the app, if you have it installed, or via the Zoom web site. You can also use Zoom on your phone or cast it to your television. How Does Zoom Work? . You don't need a paid subscription to start using Zoom. In fact, if someone else sets up the Zoom Meeting and invites you, all you need to do is follow the instructions in the email invitation to start using Zoom. You'll need to click a link to install the Zoom app, and then enter the conference code to sign into the meeting to which you've been invited. To start your own Zoom Meeting, you'll need a Zoom account, which you can create for free. Go to the Zoom web site and click Sign Up, It's Free at the top of the page and follow the instructions. Once completed, you'll be able to start your own meetings.  Zoom offers several Zoom Meeting plans. Basic is free and lets you host meetings with up to 100 participants, with a limit of 40 minutes per meeting. You can also have an unlimited number of one-on-one meetings. All of these meetings can be audio-only or video conferences. Even at the free account level, you can record and save your meetings, share your desktop with the meeting attendees, and use chat tools during the meeting. If the fairly generous features of the free Basic plan are not enough, it's possible to pay for Zoom Pro, Zoom Business, or Zoom Enterprise. Each of these adds substantial additional features, like the ability to conference more than 100 people at a time and extending the meeting duration past 40 minutes (in fact, a meeting can be up to 24 hours long).

Zoom is a video conferencing service used by companies and universities for remote communication. The service is similar to competitors such as  Google Hangout, BlueJeans, and Skype. Its basic functions include the ability to chat and call individual contacts, as well as schedule meetings for future events. This story is a part of Business Insider's Guide to Zoom. Whether it's your Friday team check-in or your grad school Wednesday workshop, Zoom allows you to stay in contact with colleagues and classmates to complete work remotely.While the platform is fairly easy to use, its basic functions are organized slightly differently depending on if you use the desktop or mobile version. Most of the key tasks, however, remain easy to spot despite slight changes: scheduling or joining calls, keeping track of your contacts and meetings, and making changes to your account settings.Many companies may already have video services in place, but Zoom is proving to be especially helpful for high school and college-level courses as it allows for up to 100 participants with a free account subscription. Here's a quick guide to the app's essential features.

Body10 Tips and Tricks for ZoomCo-host a video call, automatically send Zoom meeting links to Slack, and learn a few other tips for using this web conferencing tool. By Zapier Editorial Team · April 2, 2020The best video conferencing apps can do more than merely enable a virtual face-to-face meeting. They let you show what's on your screen to everyone else on the call, seamlessly pass control of the meeting to another person, and record the call as a video.Web conferencing service Zoom offers these features and more, some of them hidden options in advanced menus. The tricks and tips below will show you how to use the app better to work, learn, and communicate with others virtually.Some of these tips include ways that you can connect Zoom with other popular apps to automate your work. Zapier is an automation platform that lets you connect your favorite apps to save time, cut down on tedious tasks, and focus on the work that matters most. Our automations are called Zaps, and you'll see several pre-made Zaps (which we call Zap templates) throughout this piece. To get started with a Zap template, just click on it, and we'll guide you through customizing it—it only takes a couple minutes. You can read more about setting up Zaps here. Note: To set up integrations between Zoom and Zapier, you need a paid Zoom account. Free account holders don't have access to the Zoom API.1. Automatically schedule meetings—and let people know about them. If you run a lot of meetings—for example, with clients—but don't have an assistant, you might want to connect your scheduling app, Zoom, and your calendar. Whenever someone books an appointment in a scheduling app, for example, Zapier can automatically create a new Zoom meeting and add it to whatever app you use for your personal calendar. Here are some pre-built Zaps to power this workflow, but you can create a Zap with whatever apps you use.To make this automation even more powerful, you can add a step that shares the meeting details with your team via a chat app like Slack. We use this automation all the time here at Zapier—any time a new team meeting in Zoom kicks off, the Zoom link gets posted to the appropriate channel in Slack automatically.2. Create recurring meetings with saved settings and one URL. For weekly meetings, monthly check-ins, and other regularly-scheduled calls, Zoom lets you create a recurring meeting. There are two benefits to using this setting. First, it lets you lock in all the call settings you want once and have them be in place every time you meet. Second, recurring calls use the same join URL each time, so you never have to send a fresh one to attendees.Additionally, if you meet with the same group regularly but not on a regular schedule, you can choose an option called No Fixed Time, which lets you use the same settings and meeting ID over and over with the same group, no matter when you get together. This option is popular with educational groups who use Zoom as their virtual classroom.How you do this will depend on which platform you're using, but you can refer to Zoom's documentation for setting up your recurring meeting.Fair warning that for any recurring meeting, you cannot schedule it with your Personal Meeting ID (also called PMI in Zoom; it's a virtual private meeting space for you, and the link never changes). Also, know that all recurring meeting IDs expire after one year, so you'll have to generate a new one then.3. See who attended. Say you're using Zoom to hold a mandatory event, like a university lecture or a safety training session. You probably want to know who attends. You can get that information from a report once the meeting is finished.The attendee list for all meetings lives in the Zoom Account Management > Reports section. Look for Usage Reports, and then click Meeting to find the meeting you want, select the report type and date range, and generate the report.Requirements: To generate an attendee list, you need to be the 1) the host of the meeting, 2) in a role with Usage Reports enabled, or 3) an account administrator or owner. You also need a Pro, API Partner, Business, or Education plan.4. Collect information from attendees. In addition to getting an attendance sheet, you can also gather information from meeting attendees about themselves before they join the call. For example, you might want to require that attendees provide their name, company affiliation, or industry.To collect this information, first you need to require Registration, an option found in the My Meetings tab of the Zoom web app. Then, you can set up a form that attendees must fill out before they can join the meeting.For the registration form, Zoom provides standard fields, such as name and company affiliation, that you add using checkboxes. To add new questions or fields, jump over to the tab called Custom Questions.If you're using Zoom to run a digital event like a webinar, however, you might want to let attendees register via a form on your website or an event management app. Automation is a great way to make sure that everyone who signs up for your webinar is then registered in Zoom. These pre-built Zaps are perfect for getting started:You can make this automation even more powerful by making sure that any registrant information you collect is also added to your CRM or email marketing tool, so you can follow up more easily.Requirements: To require attendee information in Zoom, the host must have a Pro account. Additionally, the meeting cannot be your Personal Meeting ID.5. Record the call as a video. Zoom lets you record your web conferencing calls as videos, a handy feature for sharing the meeting with people who may have missed it or for reviewing what was said.Automatically upload Zoom recordings to Google DriveLearn howWhen you record, you must choose whether to use the local or cloud option. Local means you store the video file yourself, whether locally on your computer or in another storage space that you provide. With Cloud, which is for paying members only, Zoom stores the video for you in its cloud storage (different account types come with different amounts of storage). One convenience of the cloud option is that people can stream the video in a web browser once it's ready.When creating a video from a conference call, it makes a big difference in the final quality to optimize a few settings in advance. For example, some calls might be broadcast-style, where only the host appears on screen. In that case, set Zoom to only record the audio and video of the host. Other calls might be in the style of a collaborative meeting, in which case you want to record everyone. Be sure to explore Zoom's settings at least a few minutes before recording a call.Requirements: To record videos, you need Zoom on macOS, Windows, or Linux. If you don't see the option to record, check your settings in the web app (under My Meeting Settings) or have your account administrator enable it.If you need to share the recording later, try one of these Zaps to automatically share once the recording has finished.If you record meeting attendees' video or audio, it's common courtesy—and in some places a requirement—to inform them before you do.6. Have a collaborative annotation session. Screen sharing allows the host of a call to display whatever's on their screen to everyone else on the call. Annotation tools let all the meeting participants draw and highlight what's on screen, which can be immensely helpful when discussing visual materials, such as mockups, graphic designs, and so forth.To annotate while viewing someone else's shared screen, select View Option from the top of the Zoom window, and then choose Annotate. A toolbar appears with all your options for annotating, including text, draw, arrow, and so forth. The presenter can use the save button on the toolbar to capture the complete image with annotations as a screenshot. You can also disable attendee annotation altogether.7. Co-host calls. Meetings can have more than one person at the helm. A PR rep might want to cooperatively control a meeting alongside an executive, or a team with more than one lead may prefer to each co-host rather than choose one person over the other. Whatever your circumstances, you can start a Zoom call and have more than one person be in charge.To use co-hosting tools, you first must enable it in Zoom's Meeting Settings. Look for the Meeting tab and choose the Co-host option. Then, when you start a meeting, wait for your co-host to join, and add the person by clicking the three dots that appear when you hover over their video box. Alternatively, you can go to the Participants window, choose Manage Participants, hover over the co-host's name, and select More to find the Make Co-Host option.Requirements: To use co-hosting, you need a Pro, Business, Education, or API Partner account with Zoom, and you need to run on macOS, Windows, Android, or iOS (not Linux or web). If the option doesn't appear, ask your account administrator to enable the settings in the Meeting tab for co-hosting privileges.8. Give attendees a waiting room. Zoom lets attendees get into a video call with or without the host being present. Small groups sometimes like this option because they can have a few minutes to chit-chat before the meeting officially kicks off. In some situations, however, it could be in poor form to have attendees in a virtual room together, waiting for you to start. A better solution is to create a virtual waiting room, where attendees remain on hold until you let them in all at the same time or one by one.Precisely how you enable a waiting room depends on the type of account you have. When you set one up, however, you can customize what the attendees see while they await your grand entrance.9. Let someone else schedule your meetings. People who work with an assistant will love this option in Zoom that gives scheduling privileges to someone else. Whoever manages your calendar can now schedule Zoom calls for you.To set up the scheduling assistant privilege, log into Zoom, open Meeting Settings, and look under Other. You'll see a plus sign next to Assign Scheduling Privilege. Add your scheduling assistants by typing their email addresses and finish by clicking Assign.After you add your scheduling assistants, they must log out of Zoom and log back in for the feature to take effect. From this point on, assistants can create meetings for others by using the Schedule tool. Look for Advanced Options or Meeting Options (depending on which version of Zoom you use), and follow the prompts to create a new meeting.Requirements: The primary Zoom account holder and everyone who receives scheduling privileges must all have Pro or Corp licenses. And for webinars, both account holder and scheduler must have webinar licenses.10. Learn a few essential keyboard shortcuts. If you use Zoom more than once a week, there are a couple of keyboard shortcuts worth learning to save you oodles of time.I is for invite.

BodyUse Zoom like a pro: 20 tips and tricks to make your video calls run smoother We've got a step-by-step guide on how to change your Zoom name, profile picture and background, make a breakout room, add your pronouns and more. Alison DeNisco Rayome May 28, 2021 3:00 a.m. PT Sarah Tew/CNET The Zoom video meeting and chat app has become the wildly popular host to millions of people working, studying and socializing from home during the pandemic. Despite a number of privacy and security issues that arose alongside the platform's rapid growth, it now features end-to-end encryption and other ways to protect your account and your chats from "Zoombombing" and other privacy flaws. As COVID-19 vaccines roll out nationwide, Zoom has added new features to help prepare for the future hybrid office, as well as helpful tools for presentations -- plus more emoji reactions. Whether you've been using Zoom for years or have only just signed up in the last year, there are a number of helpful and fun tips, tricks and hidden features you can find to upgrade your video chatting experience and make your video meetings a little less weird -- and hopefully avoid Zoom fatigue and Zoom anxiety. Here are 20 ways to become a Zoom master.Read more: Ultimate webcam tips: How to look and sound great online 1. Change your background . Change your Zoom background to space, or a custom photo. Screenshot by Alison DeNisco Rayome/CNET Virtually transport yourself to the beach, outer space or anywhere else you can imagine by customizing your background while on Zoom calls -- everyone's doing it these days. You can read our step-by-step guide to changing your Zoom background on the desktop and mobile app, but basically you go to Settings > Virtual Background and select or upload the image you want from there. However, you do have to make sure that your system meets all of the requirements to do so. Read more: 10 free Zoom alternative apps for video chats2. Change your name on Zoom. Want to change the name that appears when you're in a Zoom meeting? It's easy. There are two ways: temporary and permanent. If you want to change your name for only the meeting you're currently in, after you enter the meeting, click the Participants button at the bottom of the screen. Hover over your name, and click More > Rename. Type in the name you want to appear, and click OK. If you want to change your name for every meeting going forward, go to the Zoom web portal and sign in to your account. Click Profile. In the top right corner across from your name, click Edit. Enter the name you'd like under Display name, and click Save changes. Your new name should appear in every meeting from now on, but you can still change it for individual meetings with the steps above if you'd like.

Adding your pronouns to your name on Zoom is one way to make the platform more inclusive of transgender, gender nonconforming and gender nonbinary people, by making sure you aren't assuming anyone's gender identity based on their appearance. Similar to changing your name, you can add your pronouns either for every meeting going forward, or just for the meeting you're currently in. Here are full instructions on how to add your pronouns on Zoom. 4. Add a profile picture on Zoom. Zoom lets you change your name and add a profile picture that will appear if your camera is off. Sarah Tew/CNET Similar to changing your name, you can add a temporary profile picture to any meeting you join, or a permanent one for all meetings. To add a profile picture for an individual meeting, after you enter the meeting, click the Participants button at the bottom of the screen. Hover over your name, and click More > Add profile picture. Select the picture you want from your computer, and click Open. To add a permanent profile picture to your Zoom meetings, go to the Zoom web portal and sign in to your account. Click Profile. In the top right corner across from your name, click Edit. Under the empty photo icon, click Change > Upload. Select the picture you'd like from your computer, and click Open. Readjust which part of the picture you'd like to appear, and click Save.5. Mute your audio and turn off your camera by default. Brett Pearce/CNET Diving for the mute audio and camera buttons as soon as you enter a meeting can get old. Keep your coworkers from seeing your bedhead or hearing your cat screeching by turning those off by default. To do it, select Settings > Audio > Mute microphone when joining a meeting, and then Settings > Video > Turn off my video when joining a meeting. 6. Mute and unmute with the space bar. When you are called on to speak, stop scrambling to click the microphone button. You can press and hold the spacebar to quickly mute and unmute your mic, right from your keyboard. Read more: Zoom, Skype, FaceTime: 11 tips for your video chat apps Now playing: Watch this: Weekend Zoom calls have exploded. Here's how the company... 20:59 7. Turn on the beauty filter. At this point, if you know all of the work-from-home advice about getting dressed and ready like it's a regular workday, but still don't think you're looking your best, Zoom's Touch Up My Appearance feature may be for you. The filter aims to smooth over your appearance, making you look dewy and well-rested. If you've ever used beauty mode on your phone's selfie camera, you know what you're getting.To turn it on, click the up arrow next to Start Video. Click Video Settings, and under My Video, check the box for Touch Up My Appearance. Read more: 'I am not a cat': Find and use the infamous lawyer cat filter everyone's talking about8. Set up a waiting room for added privacy. You've probably heard about Zoombombing -- when uninvited guests crash your Zoom meeting and disrupt it. One way to help prevent this from happening is by enabling the Waiting Room feature, so you can see who's attempting to join the meeting before allowing them access. To do so, go to Account Management > Account Settings. Click on Meeting, then click Waiting Room to enable the setting. (We've got more tips on how to prevent Zoombombing in your meetings here.)9. Create Zoom breakout rooms for smaller group discussion. Split your big Zoom meeting into up to 50 separate smaller sessions with breakout rooms. The meeting host can choose to split meeting participants into separate sessions automatically or manually, or can let participants select and enter any breakout session they like. The host can switch between sessions at any point. To start a breakout room as the host, go to Account Management > Account Settings. Under the Meeting tab, go to Breakout Room, and make sure the setting is toggled on. You'll also see the option to allow meeting hosts to preassign participants to breakout rooms. (If the Breakout Room option is grayed out, that means it's been locked and you need to contact your Zoom administrator.)Zoom has lots of features to help your meetings run more smoothly. Sarah Tew/CNET 10. Share your screen. Share your screen for a Zoom meeting (or to watch a movie or play a game) with other participants by clicking the Share screen icon on the toolbar at the bottom of the meeting screen. You'll have the option to share your entire desktop, or just one of the windows you have open. Click the red Stop Share button at the top of the screen to go back to being a normal participant in the meeting. 11. React with emoji onscreen . Zoom added a larger set of emoji reactions in an April update. Zoom If you're muted in a meeting, you can still let the hosts know your thoughts with emoji reactions. Send a thumbs-up or a clapping emoji to communicate without interrupting the meeting (by default, those reactions have a yellow skin tone, but you can customize that in the Zoom desktop app). In April, Zoom added about 40 emoji reactions, instead of the six previously available. To react during a meeting, click the Reactions tab at the bottom of the meeting screen (it's in the same panel as mute audio and video, to the right) and choose the one you want. The emoji will disappear after 5 seconds. If the meeting organizer enables the nonverbal feedback feature, participants can place an icon such as a raised hand next to their name to communicate. Every participant will be able to see each other's feedback. 12. Learn handy keyboard shortcuts. For those who don't like clicking around their screen, Zoom has a ton of helpful keyboard shortcuts to help you navigate the app on your desktop without using your mouse.You can find commands to join a meeting, start or stop recording, enter full screen and share your screen (more on that below). Check out Zoom's full list of hot keys and keyboard shortcuts. 13. Turn on gallery view. Gallery view lets you see everyone in the meeting at once, instead of just the person speaking. To turn that on, click the tab that says Gallery View in the top right corner. If the meeting has 49 or fewer attendees, you'll see all of their screens displayed on one page. If there are more, you'll have the option to move between multiple pages. Change it back by clicking Speaker View in that same top right corner. 14. Put yourself in the same virtual background as your coworkers with immersive view. Try out Zoom's immersive view feature to put yourself in the same virtual space as your fellow meeting participants. Zoom Zoom's immersive view feature lets you put yourself in the same virtual background as your fellow video chat participants -- be it a conference room, classroom or anywhere else you can think of. If you're the meeting or webinar host, start the Zoom meeting on your desktop (it will be enabled by default for all free and single pro accounts using Zoom 5.6.3 or higher). In the top right corner, where you find Speaker or Gallery View, you'll see the option to enable Immersive View. Click Immersive View, and choose from one of Zoom's provided scenes, or upload your own. Your meeting participants or webinar hosts will now be placed in the same virtual background and will appear that way on every participant's screen.15. Hide nonvideo participants. On a larger call, your screen can get cluttered with participants, which can be distracting, especially if some don't have their cameras on. Hide the participants who aren't using video by going to Settings > Video > Meetings, and check Hide nonvideo participants. Now you'll only be distracted by your co-workers' pets and children who appear on video. 16. Use the vanishing pen to highlight without having to go back and erase. Zoom's vanishing pen feature lets you highlight text as you share your screen.  Zoom Zoom's vanishing pen feature lets you draw on your shared screen to call attention to text or objects, but then fades away so you don't have to go back and erase your markings. To use it, share your screen, and click Annotate. On the menu that pops up, click Vanishing Pen. 17. Record the meeting to your computer. Both free and paid Zoom subscribers can record their meeting to their laptop or computer using the desktop app (you can't record on mobile at the moment, unless you have a paid account -- keep reading for more on that). Those recorded files can then be uploaded to a file storage service such as Google Drive or Dropbox, or a video streaming service such as YouTube or Vimeo. To enable local recording, go to Settings > Recording, and toggle it on. When you're hosting a Zoom meeting, click the Record icon on the bottom toolbar. 18. Record a meeting to the cloud. If you have one of Zoom's paid plans (which start at $15 a month), you can make a recording that will save directly to the cloud (or to your computer if you prefer). Tap the record button on the bottom toolbar, and you'll have the option to make it either local or in the cloud. You can do this on either desktop or mobile. 19. Host a group meeting longer than 40 minutes. On Zoom's free basic tier, group meetings can only last up to 40 minutes (though one-on-one meetings are unlimited in time). To get unlimited group time, upgrade to a paid account. 20. Host more than 100 people . If you have a group of more than 100 people to host for work or school, you have to upgrade to a paid professional account. If you upgrade to the highest tier (Enterprise Plus), you can host up to 1,000 participants.Watch our video on how to make your webcam video look and sound great online and make sure to subscribe to the How to Do It All channel on YouTube for more how-to videos.  Coronavirus updates Free at-home COVID-19 tests: How you'll get one CDC advises against cruise ship travel Will I need a fourth COVID vaccine dose?

Body8 Tips for How to Use Zoom Like a ProUpdated June 25, 2021If you’re new to working from home, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re also new to using Zoom—our pick for the best videoconferencing service. We’re not the only ones who like it: Zoom has added millions of users over the past few months as teams shift to remote work in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.But although it’s easy to get up and running with Zoom, you may not be aware of some of its best, most useful features (many of which are buried in advanced setting menus). At Wirecutter, we’ve been using Zoom daily for years, and we’ve learned a few tricks along the way. Here’s what you need to know to get the most out of the service, even if you’re using only the free, basic version.Beautify (or hide) your face. If you’ve just rolled out of bed and right into a company meeting, sans coffee or makeup, check the Touch up my appearance box in Zoom’s video settings menu. It basically functions like a soft-focus lens, adding a slight blur to skin tones and smoothing out wrinkles, blemishes, and other little imperfections.Here’s a dirty little trick: If you’d prefer not to be seen at all (and you’re not planning to speak in the meeting you’re attending) you can use a screenshot of yourself in a Zoom meeting as your profile picture. That way, you’ll always look perfect—and look like you’re paying attention.Regardless of whether you’re properly put together, we think it’s a good idea to set Zoom to disable your camera and mic by default when joining meetings, and to enable the option to always see a video preview before you join. That way, you can catch any stains on your shirt or spinach in your teeth.Pretend you’re on the moon or cosplay as George W. Bush. One of Zoom’s coolest, most underutilized features is its Virtual Backgrounds—basically green-screen technology for your boring office meetings. Need an example? Here’s Wirecutter lead engineer Courtney Wilburn on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln. The caveat is that you need a strong processor or an actual green screen to make this technology work. Even with my Intel Core i5–powered 2019 MacBook Pro, I don’t have sufficient processing power for Zoom to differentiate my face from the white wall behind me. When it works, though, it’s glorious.Prevent embarrassment by silencing desktop notifications. Windows 10 has a built-in feature called Focus Assist that does just this. Just head to Settings > System > Focus Assist, and toggle When I’m duplicating my display to On. You can also toggle it manually from the Action Center found at the bottom right of the Windows 10 taskbar. Mac users need to employ a third-party app to automate the process. Our favorite is Muzzle, which simply toggles on macOS’s built-in Do Not Disturb mode whenever you start screen sharing, so you don’t forget. (Check out the Muzzle website for hilarious examples of the kind of wince-inducing texts and dating-app notifications you can prevent your colleagues from seeing.)There’s more to screen sharing than PowerPoint presentations. Zoom’s screen-sharing feature is extremely deep, letting you share your entire desktop or specific apps. But did you know it has a built-in whiteboard? Sure, it’s useful for mapping out complex ideas and communicating visuals, but we’ve probably used it more often as a delightfully low-tech way to play Friday-afternoon games like Pictionary and Hangman. Hosts can (and should) mute attendees. Most Zoom users are good about muting, but in large meetings there’s usually at least one person who forgets to hit that mute button and ends up broadcasting a private conversation, baby cries, or … worse.What many hosts don’t realize is that they have the power to mute these rogue talkers. If you want everyone to join the meeting muted by default, you can make that happen by toggling Mute participants upon entry in the Schedule Meeting section of Zoom’s account settings. And if someone forgets to stay muted, you can hit Manage Participants in the app and click the mic icon next to the person you want to silence. This is a feature you’re likely to find yourself using far more than you expect, hopefully saving your colleagues some embarrassment.Attendees who are muted can of course unmute themselves, but there are other ways to keep a large meeting from descending into chaos. You can press and hold the spacebar to temporarily unmute yourself—sort of like with a walkie-talkie—or open the Participants tab at the bottom of the Zoom window and hit Raise Hand to be called on by the moderator.Take advantage of Zoom’s powerful scheduling feature. Zoom’s built-in scheduling function ties into iCal and Google Calendar, which makes organizing meetings a surprisingly seamless process. The scheduling setup screen even provides some thoughtful options that other videoconferencing services don’t, such as the option to start the meeting with video on or off (for both the host and participants), what sort of audio sources to allow, and whether to use your Personal Meeting ID (a dedicated number for your own room) or a randomly generated room number.Keep unwanted guests out of meetings. With huge numbers of workers and students moving to Zoom and other videoconferencing platforms during the COVID-19 epidemic, an unfortunate new trend has arisen in online meetings: “Zoombombing.” Think of it like photobombing—someone finds or guesses your meeting URL, jumps into your chat uninvited, and puts themselves on camera. The results can be disturbing, to say the least.Zoom has helpfully shared some tips in a Twitter thread, but here’s the condensed version of what you can do as a host to prevent this kind of harassment:Don’t publicly share your meeting ID, and if you’re having a public meeting, don’t use your personal meeting ID (PMI); use a randomly generated meeting ID (as explained in this video) instead.Use the waiting room feature to ensure that only people you know get into the chat.Limit meetings to those who are logged in to Zoom. If you want to be even more strict, you can even limit your meeting to those people whose email addresses use a certain domain (such as your company’s or school’s).Prevent attendees from screen sharing without your consent.Lock meetings that have already started to prevent new people from joining midstream.If you follow these tips and someone still acts up during a call, remember that hosts can (and should) mute rogue talkers and have the power to kick anyone out of the meeting at any time.Finally (and this can’t be said enough), please mute yourself. Yes, your host can do it for you, but come on: Be a responsible adult and smash that mute button unless it’s your turn to talk. You’ll save yourself some embarrassment, and everybody else won’t have to hear you eating your salad.Further readingThe Wirecutter New Essentials. by Jason ChenThe coronavirus has turned life upside down.

BodyHow to use Zoom app on iPhone, Android, Windows and Mac By Don Reisinger published 8 December 21 A simple guide on how to use Zoom (Image credit: Zoom) Knowing how to use Zoom is an essential skill these days. Zoom is one of the best video chat apps for remote meetings. And for those who are still social distancing, Zoom is great for virtual get-togethers, too.Throughout the pandemic, video conferencing apps like Zoom have been extremely useful. They help businesses continue in their operations and have virtual meetings with team members and clients. For schools, Zoom allows teachers to deliver their classes to students over the web. And learning how to use Zoom has become essential for bringing far-flung friends and family members together for social activities like happy hours and even weddings. The best mouse for getting work doneHow to keep trolls out of your Zoom meetingThe best Zoom alternatives for video conferencingMore Zoom how-to guides• How to use Zoom • How to set up a Zoom meeting • How to join a Zoom meeting • How to change your Zoom background • How to share your screen on Zoom • How to chat in Zoom • How to do karaoke on Zoom • How to delete Zoom • How to automatically mute on Zoom Zoom has been in use by the corporate world for years but has recently become a dominant force in the industry, forcing rivals like Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Skype to quickly add new features to keep up.Zoom is available on many devices, and Zoom for Home will soon expand to smart displays including Amazon Echo Show, Portal from Facebook and Google Nest Hub Max.Here's how to use Zoom on your iPhone, Android device, or Windows or Mac laptop to stay connected while at home. Getting started with Zoom. Before you get started with Zoom, you need to make sure you have a webcam.Zoom works across devices, including mobile and computers. You don't have to worry about this if you're on a smartphone or tablet, since they already come with front-facing cameras baked in. The same goes for laptops.However, if you have a desktop (or want better video quality on your laptop), you'll need to buy yourself a webcam. Popular options include the Logitech C310 and Microsoft Lifecam HD-3000.How to sign up for Zoom and choose a plan. (Image credit: Zoom)Once you have your webcam ready to go, it's time to sign up for Zoom by visiting the Zoom website.If you're an individual or you have little need for frequent video conferences, the free Zoom Basic package gives you the ability to chat with up to 100 participants and hold unlimited one-on-one meetings. Be aware, however, that you're limited to 40 minutes in group meetings. If that's annoying, check out our Zoom vs Google Hangouts face-off, to see how Zoom compares to a video call service without time limits.Zoom also offers several plans for businesses that need more functionality. Those plans start at $15 per month for Zoom Pro, which includes the ability to have a 24-hour presentation and user management, among other features, and bumps to the $20-per-month Zoom Business plan for the ability to hold meetings with 300 participants at once. A version for large enterprises is also available, but customers need to contact Zoom sales to sign up. Looking for a diand should check out our Zoom vs Google Hangouts face-off).Getting Zoom software. (Image credit: Zoom)After you enter your e-mail account and password upon signing up for Zoom, you'll be taken through the process of actually getting the client software. Again, the software you use will be dependent upon the device you're trying to download Zoom on.Either way, when you're brought to your account page, you can click on the Resources tab at the top of your page to find the Zoom client you need. Pick your software (Windows or Mac) and download the Zoom client.If you're on mobile, you can go with the Zoom app available in Apple's App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android devices.Skipping Zoom software. You don't actually need to install anything to use Zoom on a desktop or laptop. All you need is a web browser.When you get the invitation to join a Zoom meeting, click on the meeting URL. A new tab will open in your preferred browser, and if you have the desktop client app installed, the meeting will bounce over to the app.However, if you don't have the desktop client software, then the Zoom browser window will ask you to download it. Ignore that suggestion and skip down to the fine print underneath: "If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser."Click the highlighted text in "join from your browser" and you'll be presented with a Zoom meeting page. Sign in with your name and join the meeting.How to host a meeting on Zoom. (Image credit: Zoom)Once your Zoom app is downloaded to your device of choice, you'll need to know how to set up a Zoom meeting.Sign in to your account. At that time, you'll have the option to schedule a meeting. Simply click the "Schedule a New Meeting" button and decide when the meeting should be held, who will be attending, and more.Once that's set, Zoom will give you login information for participants and the ability for users to log in via the app or on their phones.Interestingly, Zoom also comes with a quick sign-in feature for mobile users. So, if someone participating in your call doesn't have Zoom, they can quickly call the Zoom number and Zoom will automatically get them in by inputting their meeting ID and other information without any delay.How to join a meeting on Zoom. If you get an invite from a Zoom user and you don't happen to be one, you can easily join via phone in the manner outlined above. You can also download a thin client for Zoom in your browser that allows you to join meetings via video.Since you already have the Zoom app downloaded to your device, you can also use that app to input the Meeting ID supplied by the host to quickly join. Zoom also creates unique URLs for each of its meetings to easily get to where you need to go.Here's a more extensive guide on how to join a Zoom meeting and how to see everyone on Zoom in the grid format.Trying to find the chat menu in Zoom? Check out our how to chat in Zoom guide.Extra Zoom features you should try. (Image credit: Zoom)One of the great things about Zoom is just how many different features it comes with aside from letting you communicate with your team.For one, you and others on the call can easily share your screen during use, so you can illustrate a point, discuss how to use certain features, and more. Screen recording is also baked in, so you can record what you're showing and send it off to other people over time. Zoom also includes the ability to have chats with people while you're on a call and even share files, so you can quickly collaborate on documents you're working on.If it's collaboration you're after, Zoom features the ability to break people out into their own rooms, so they can work on something and come back to the main room at some point in the future. Users in groups can also all annotate on screens and whiteboard on the fly.If you're wondering how secure Zoom is, the app features 256-bit AES encryption, as well as SSL encryption.Deleting Zoom. Whether you downloaded Zoom for a one-time meeting or found you prefer a different video chat app, you can ditch Zoom at any time.Here's how to delete Zoom on all your devices. Next: See the best early Black Friday deals right now Don Reisinger Don Reisinger is a communications strategist, consultant, and copywriter who has also written for many leading technology and business publications including CNET, Fortune Magazine and The New York Times, as well as Tom's Guide.  Topics Software See all comments (0) No comments yet Comment from the forums

BodyHow to set up and use Zoom: Everything you need to know to get startedYou've probably had your fair share of Zoom meetings in the past year, but here's a refresher course on the basics.By Mitja Rutnik•June 6, 2021Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityNot sure how to use Zoom Meetings? Or how to set it up? Maybe you are curious about what features Zoom offers. These are the questions I often hear these days because many people started working from home because of the COVID-19 virus.If you’re new to Zoom, creating an account and getting familiarized with the tool’s basic settings and features should be the first thing you do. That’s what this guide is for. It will tell you exactly how to set up Zoom, which settings you should play around with first, and which features you need to know about. Let’s dive in. How to set up Zoom. Before you start using Zoom, you have to set it up first. That means making an account, downloading the required apps, and taking care of a few basic settings.To make an account, visit Zoom’s sign-up page and follow the on-screen instructions. All you have to do is enter your work email address, activate your account via a link sent to you in an email, and add in your name and a password of choice. That’s it.The next step is to download the apps you’ll be using. These include the app for your PC and the app for your Android or iOS device if you plan on joining meetings on the go. You can join a Zoom meeting on your PC without the app, as the software works in a browser. However, its feature set is limited in this case. For that reason, our advice is to get the app. Now it’s time to update your personal info and a few important settings. The first thing we recommend is to upload your profile image, which will show up in a Zoom meeting when your camera is turned off — making you look more professional. To get the job done, head to your profile page, click the “Change” link up top and upload your image. And while you’re on your profile page, scroll down to make sure the time zone and format are set correctly.The final thing we recommend you do is to decide whether you want the camera and microphone to be turned on or off by default when you join a meeting. You’ll need to open the Zoom app on your PC to update these two settings, as they aren’t available in the web client.Here’s how to do it: Open the app, sign in, and click the gear icon in the top-right corner (below your profile image) to access the settings. From there, click the “Video” option and check/uncheck the box next to “Turn off my video when joining meetings.” Then click on “Audio” in the left column and check/uncheck the box next to “Mute my microphone when joining a meeting.” Zoom will save the changes automatically, so you can go ahead and close the window. These are the basic settings we recommend you update before joining your first meeting, although there are plenty of others available as well. Go through them all if you’re up for it and update the ones you care about. See also: Zoom Meetings: 10 tips and tricks you should know about How to use Zoom’s features. Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityIf you want to know how to use Zoom, you have to get familiar with its main features. We suggest you do that before you join a real meeting. All you have to do is launch the Zoom app on your PC and press the “New Meeting” button. This will start a new meeting, and you’ll be the only one attending it, giving you plenty of peace and quiet to play around with the features available and change your background. Here are the main ones you should know and try out:Turn your mic and camera on/off: The mic and camera controls are located in the bottom-left corner. Just click on the microphone or camera icon to switch either of them on or off. We suggest you keep your mic muted when you’re not speaking to prevent background noise that may bother other participants.Mute a participant: This feature is only available to a host — the person who starts a meeting. If there’s excessive background noise coming from a certain individual (like their kids screaming in the background), a host can turn off their microphone with a simple click. To do so, click the “Manage participants” button located in the taskbar and then click the blue “Mute” button that shows up once you hover your mouse over a participant’s name.Raise your hand: Whenever you want to speak, you can signal it to the host by raising your hand virtually. The host will then give you the floor to talk or ask questions. This is a great feature that prevents multiple people from talking at once. It’s simple to use as well. Select the “Participants” option from the taskbar and then click the “Raise Hand” option at the bottom of the section that shows up on the right side.Record a meeting: You can record any Zoom Meeting you enter. This is a great feature, as it allows employees who couldn’t make a meeting to check it out later on. To start recording, press the “Record” button in the taskbar. Recordings can be saved to your device or the cloud, although the latter isn’t available on free plans. Also, keep in mind that the host of a meeting manages this feature.Chat with colleagues: Zoom has an integrated chat feature that’s great for asking questions and giving feedback during a meeting. To use it, press the “Chat” button in the taskbar, type in your message in the right column that shows up, and press enter. The message will be sent to a group channel by default, meaning everyone will see it. You also have the option to send a private message to a colleague by selecting their name from the drop-down menu located above the text field.Share your screen: Zoom supports screen-sharing, a must-have tool for a business-focused video conferencing tool. To get started, press the “Share Screen” option in the taskbar and then choose if you want to share the view of your browser or that of an app running on your PC. There’s also a whiteboard option available that allows for a more creative approach. Additionally, you can select only to share a portion of your screen to hide sensitive data. See also: Zoom vs. Skype: Which is best for your video calls? How to join a Zoom meeting. Joining a Zoom Meeting is a breeze, no matter which device you’re using. The host of the meeting will share a link with you, and all you have to do is click it. The app on your device will launch automatically and connect you to the meeting. You can join a Zoom meeting with a regular phone without an internet connection. The other option is that the host will share the meeting’s ID with you, consisting of nine numbers (example: 000-000-000). In this case, you’ll have to open up the Zoom app on your device, click the blue “Join” button, type in the meeting ID, and press “Join Meeting.” You’ll also have to type in a password that the meeting organizer will provide in some cases.The third option is to join a meeting by calling one of the phone numbers listed in the Zoom meeting’s email invitation. This is a great option if you’re on the road and don’t have access to an internet connection. However, you’ll need someone to text you the number to call since you won’t be able to check your email. See also: The 6 most common Zoom issues and how to fix them How to set up a Zoom meeting. The easiest way to set up a Zoom meeting is to open the Zoom app on your device and click the “New Meetings” option. From there, you have a couple of choices available. The first one is to click the icon in the top-left corner (next to the green lock), copy the meeting’s URL or ID, and then share them with your team in Slack or any other chat app you’re using. People can then join in on the meeting by clicking the link or opening the Zoom app and typing in the meeting’s ID.The other option is to click the “Invite” button in the taskbar, select the people in the Contacts folder you want to invite to the meeting, and click the “Invite” button. This will send an email to the people you selected, which will contain the link to the meeting, the meeting’s ID, and a few numbers people can call if they wish to join the meeting with a phone. You can schedule a Zoom meeting and add it to the calendar in just a few clicks. You can also schedule a meeting in advance with the help of Google Calendar. To get started, open the Zoom app on your device, click the “Schedule” option, and fill out the mandatory fields, including the meeting’s date and time. Then click the “Schedule” button that will take you to Google Calendar’s website.From there, you can add in guests — people who you want to invite to the meeting — double-check if all the data is correct, click “Save,” and then select the “Send” option so that the participants will receive an email with all the details required. How to end a Zoom meeting. You have two options available if you’re the host, both of which show up when you click the “End Meeting” button in the bottom-right corner. The first one is “End meeting for all,” which will log all the participants out of the meeting when pressed. The second is the “Leave meeting” option that will only log you out of the meeting, allowing the rest of the team to continue the conversation if they want to.If you’re not the host of a meeting, you’ll only have the “Leave meeting” option available that will log you out when clicked. You won’t need to click the option if the host ends the meeting for all participants, in which case you’ll get logged out automatically.If you made it this far, you now know how to use Zoom Meetings, its main features, and how to start, join, and end a meeting. These are the main things you should know about, although there are plenty of other features and settings you can play around with. How ToZoomComments

BodyOK, Zoomer! How to Become a Videoconferencing Power UserAs the pandemic pushes work online, Zoom is the new office. Follow these tips to get the most out of those video meet-ups.FacebookTwitterEmailSave StoryTo revist this article, visit My Profile, then View saved stories.Play/Pause ButtonPauseIllustration: Casey Chin; Getty ImagesAn upside of being quarantined during a global pandemic is that your isolation doesn’t have to be so … lonely. Amid the chaos of the coronavirus, the magic of videoconferencing technology (and, most popularly, Zoom) has allowed unprecedented numbers of people to connect virtually.But it’s not exactly second nature. There are all sorts of settings and complications that await the noob Zoomer. Whether you’re using Zoom for work, long-distance video tutoring, or just to connect with friends or family, here’s what you need to know.The BasicsGet up to dateFirst things first: You’re going to need to download Zoom. Chances are you’ve already done that, or you wouldn’t be reading this in the first place. Next, make sure you have the most up-to-date version of the software. Some of the more advanced features (which we’ll get into later) require the latest release. To update, click on your user icon. It’s the blob in the top right corner that likely has your initials or a photo on it. A list will pop up. In the middle is "Check for updates." Click it, and follow the steps shown in the window.Enjoy the viewYou’ll enter a Zoom meeting by either hosting it yourself (there’s a big "New Meeting" button right there on the app's main control panel) or joining someone else’s meeting.Once you're in, you’ll see the other people in the meeting. They may be arranged in the big, checkered Brady Bunch-style grid which Zoom calls Gallery View, or you’ll be staring deep into the slightly pixelated soul of just one person on the call. Zoom calls this Speaker View, and it switches the video feed to show whoever is talking at the moment. You can toggle between the two view options by clicking the icon at the top right of your video screen.Why can’t anybody see/hear me?Zoom should give you the option to turn on your camera and mic right when you log onto a meeting, but if it doesn’t, use the buttons at the bottom left corner of the toolbar to turn on your camera and your microphone.If you’d like to set your video or audio to be always on or always off, open Zoom and click the little gear icon just below your profile icon. In the video settings, go down to Meetings and check or uncheck "Turn off my video when joining meeting." To silence your mic, select the "Mute my microphone" option.A quick etiquette note: It’s best to stay muted, especially when you’re on a busy call. Chances are you’d rather not have your screaming toddler or yapping dog provide the backing track for everyone’s meeting. To briefly unmute yourself to say something like, “Yes, I am paying attention,” just hold down the space bar. It works like a walkie-talkie button, keeping your line open as long as you're pressing it. Release the space bar, and you go back to being muted.If the space bar trick doesn’t work, go back into the audio settings and check the box for "Press and hold SPACE key to temporarily unmute."Why is my connection so bad?Choppy video could be caused by anything—and maybe it's because your connection can’t handle it when all 65 people in the regional sales logistics department (or whatever) talk at the same time. You do have options for beefing up your home Wi-Fi, and now you might have a good excuse to do so.A more immediate solution is to save some bandwidth by reducing video quality. Go into video settings and uncheck "Enable HD." If you’re the host of the meeting, you can make that the default for everyone on the call. You’ll need to leave the Zoom app and go to the company's support site. (It will make you log in.) From the Settings page, go into Meetings, then scroll way down to the "In Meeting (Advanced)" section. Toggle off "Group HD video" and enjoy slightly smoother video at the expense of downgrading all your coworkers’ visages to look like blocky Minecraft characters.The ParticularsHow do I share my screen? I want people to see all my browser tabsThere’s a big green button right in the middle of the in-meeting taskbar that says "Share Screen." Click that. You can choose to share any single open application (like PowerPoint or your web browser) or your entire desktop.If you want to get more picky about the screen sharing options, like to decide who is allowed to share their screens on the call, click the arrow right by the Share button and choose your settings. (More on why this is a good idea in a minute.)Wait, why is everything backwards?Zoom videos are mirrored by default, because it looks more natural to see yourself reflected back at you in that way. Other participants still see the non-mirrored, normal you. You can turn this mirroring feature off, but it's disorienting and takes some getting used to. Still, it’s useful to turn off mirroring if you find yourself wanting to share a physical object by holding it up to the camera, like a page of notes or some flash cards. Or maybe you just have a sick face tattoo and you don’t want it to read “STERGER ON.”Go to your video settings and uncheck "Mirror my video." That’ll let you see your true self.Whatever happened to a good old-fashioned phone call?You can do that too, but with Zoom! When the meeting host sends out an invite, it will have a phone number attached. Just dial that number and you’ll be connected to the meeting with everyone else. You won’t be able to see them, and they won’t be able to see you, but you can still participate by speaking. Just like old times!If you’re the meeting host and you want to enable this feature, go to your Settings page on the website and choose the "Telephone" tab. There you’ll find options for allowing international numbers and other types of calls. And if you’re dealing with someone who isn’t super computer-savvy, maybe just text/call and give them the phone number directly.These are all fine and useful tips. Now please help me take my mind off the fact that I'm trapped in my apartment.A great way to add a little bit of fun to your Zoom call is with a virtual background. In Zoom’s settings window, go to the "Virtual Background" tab. You can use one of the default options or upload a picture of your own. Make it look like you’re taking a call from a tropical beach or the rim of the Grand Canyon! Or if you’re not really feeling the whole “work” thing right now, you can get creative with the feature.In general, virtual backgrounds work best when you're sitting in front of a plain, flat wall without a bunch of stuff on it. There’s even an option in Zoom for using a green screen, if you have one.Stay out of TroubleRepel piratesUnfortunately, not everything on the internet is good. The great surge in Zoom usage in recent weeks has enticed plenty of hijackers and pranksters. In these so-called “Zoombombing” incidents, malcontents have wormed their way into public and private videostreams and proceeded to wreak havoc by sharing screens filled with, among other things, hardcore pornography for all to see. To make it even more annoying, in some cases the hijacker(s) switched between accounts, so that the moderator couldn’t block them all in time.If you plan on hosting Zoom calls, it’s best to make sure you choose some secure settings before starting a meeting. For private meetings, go into your settings page and switch on "Require a password when scheduling new meetings." (You can also require a numeric code for people calling on the phone.) That’s one way to keep out the randos. If you’re running a public meeting, that means anyone with the link can pop in. This is where those screen-sharing settings become really important. You can set sharing function defaults in the "In Meeting (Basic)" section of the settings page. There’s the option to make it so hosts alone can share their screens, or just turn off all sharing entirely.You can adjust this during a meeting if you need to. Click the arrow by the "Share Screen" button, go to "Advanced Sharing Options," and then change "Who Can Share?" to "Only Host."Additionally, it’s a good idea to make sure you turn on "Allow host to put attendee on hold" (so you can kick people out) and "Disable desktop/screen share for users."Zoom gives participants the ability to annotate a shared image or slide show; if you’re worried about somebody scrawling dicks all over your shared feed, turn off "Annotation." Zoom also lets you remotely adjust any camera on the call. To disable this, go into the "In Meeting (Advanced)" settings and turn off "Far end camera control," so no one can mess with each other’s video feeds. You can also set up a "Waiting room," in which each user has to be individually approved by the host to be allowed into the meeting. It’s probably a good idea to disable "Whiteboard" too, because of the potential for aforementioned dick drawings.One last thing: Switch off "Join before host" if you don’t want the meeting to start before you get there. Who knows what they’d do in there if you weren't around? (Probably talk about you.)Watch YourselfAs we've seen, being the host of a Zoom meeting has its perks. You get to control the way the meeting goes, who gets to share their screen, and who gets to stick around. But if you’re not running the meeting and you're just a participant, you should know that Zoom has some features that enable the meeting host to compromise your privacy.First off is recording. Usually, only the host can record a Zoom call. They can choose to get just an audio clip, or they can collect all the videofeeds and chat logs as well. Zoom can display a disclaimer saying that the meeting is being recorded, but it’s up to the host to enable that disclaimer. So it’s entirely possible that your meetings are being recorded without your knowledge. The moral here is clear: Wear some pants.Another nefarious Zoom option is "Attention Tracking." Enabled, the feature alerts the meeting host when a participant has had Zoom minimized or hidden behind other tabs for more than 30 seconds. It was ostensibly meant for educators running a remote class to see which students aren't paying attention, but it can also be used in the workplace by your overbearing boss.Zoom has a few other privacy hitches that you should be aware of. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has an informative roundup.More From WIRED on Covid-19Gear and tips to help you get through a pandemicThe doctor who helped defeat smallpox explains what's comingEverything you need to know about coronavirus testingDon’t go down a coronavirus anxiety spiralHow is the virus spread?

Body16 Advanced Zoom Tips for Better Video MeetingsThe best Zoom tips and tricks that you can use to master conference call communication. Alex Turnbull 6 Min read · 1978 shares As a 100% remote company, we rely on Zoom to communicate with our global team. Today, we’re sharing our favorite Zoom tips and tricks to help newly-remote teams get up to speed on video conferencing. We build customer support software here at Groove. We provide an inbox for customer service email collaboration, a knowledge base for self-service and training guides, and a reporting dashboard to help our customers scale appropriately. And we do it all as an entirely remote team.  While, we don’t have our meetings in a physical conference room, we do see each other every single day. Our daily video meeting rhythm helps us to stay productive, happy and close-knit. Each day, we huddle together via video chat, and the best tool that we’ve found for this so far is Zoom. We spend hundreds of hours per year in Zoom. So time-saving hacks, even if they just save a few seconds, can make a meaningful difference in our productivity. Even if you just use Zoom for the occasional meeting, the tips and tricks we’ve fallen in love with can still help you have a smoother, more pleasant experience. Today, I’m sharing our favorite Zoom hacks, including keyboard shortcuts, non-obvious settings, integrations, and general video chat tips. You’ll learn: How we save hours each year with shortcuts (e.g., invite someone to a meeting in less than 2 seconds)Little-known integrations that can make scheduling meetings seamlessHow to actually look better in your video meetingsAnd more… Zoom Keyboard Shortcuts. Use these shortcuts to save time on common tasks in Zoom. 1) Quick Invite. When you’re in a meeting, type ⌘Cmd+I (PC: Alt+I) to open the Invite window. From the Email tab, copy the URL, and send it to anyone who you want to invite to the meeting. Or click on Contacts to directly invite a colleague if they’re on your contact list. Note: See Tip #10 for an even faster way to invite others 2) Record Meeting. Recording is a tremendously useful feature in Zoom. Want to save key meetings or employee one-on-one’s? Record them for reference. Doing an interview and don’t want to slow things down by taking notes? Record it and get it transcribed. We do this for all of our founder interviews. Just type ⌘Cmd+Shift+R (PC: Alt+R) to start recording any meeting. Type ⌘Cmd+Shift+P (PC: Alt+P) to pause/resume recording. 3) Share Screen. Screen sharing is one of the key features that Zoom does better than any other video conferencing platform we tried. To start a screen share, type ⌘Cmd+Shift+S (PC: Alt+Shift+S). To pause/resume a screen share, type ⌘Cmd+Shift+T (PC: Alt+T). 4) Mute Audio. Use ⌘Cmd+Shift+A (PC: Alt+A) to mute/unmute your audio. 5) Turn Off Video. To quickly turn video off/on, hit ⌘Cmd+Shift+V (PC: Alt+V). 6) Mute Everyone. Our daily huddles now involve 20 people. Ambient or background noise can often get in the way of clear communication. We found this trick where the meeting host can hit ⌘Cmd+Ctrl+M (PC: Alt+M) to mute everyone on the call at once. This shortcut has single-handedly shaved minutes off of our daily meetings. Zoom Settings. If you fix these settings once, they’ll reward you with optimized Zoom meetings forever… 7) Always Mute Microphone. This setting ensures you enter meetings quietly without bringing sudden noise to the call. You can access Audio Settings directly from a Zoom call by clicking the arrow next to the microphone. Check “Mute microphone when joining a meeting“. The same setting exists (and as a rule, should always be used) on the mobile app. 8) Always Turn Video Off. Unless video is a necessity, we’ve found that turning it off can help increase the clarity of the call. This particular setting allows you to turn it off when entering a call (you can always turn it on later)—which is another helpful way to reduce sudden interruptions. You can access Video Settings directly from a Zoom call by clicking the arrow next to the camera. Check “Turn off my video when joining a meeting”. 9) Display Names. This is less important when you’re chatting with people you know well, but if you use Zoom to do a lot of sales calls, then this setting will ensure you never accidentally forget the name of the person you’re talking to. Go to Settings > Video and check “Always display participant’s name on their videos.” 10) Auto-copy Invite URL When Starting a Meeting. The Invite keyboard shortcut is great, but this setting takes things a step further. Found in General settings, this option makes it super easy to invite people to any meeting, without even going through the process of manually copying the invite URL. 11) Enable Shortcuts Outside of Zoom. This setting will double the power of all of the keyboard shortcuts above, and that’s not an exaggeration. Do you often have other windows open while in Zoom meetings? Well, with this setting, you can use your Zoom keyboard shortcuts even when you’re in another window. To turn it on, go to Settings > Keyboard Shortcuts and select “Enable Global Shortcut.” 12) Meeting Reminder (Mobile). When I’m on the go, I don’t always know when a meeting is about to start. On my phone, calendar reminders often go ignored (there are so many of them that it’s just too noisy to keep up). So I set up Zoom reminders to ensure that I never miss an important scheduled meeting. 13) Disable Waiting Room. Zoom recently turned on a bunch of privacy-related settings by default. One of those is the waiting room, which requires you to admit each attendee individually. Our calls are mostly internal anyway (and it can take a while to admit 10+ people individually), so we turned this setting off under Settings > In Meeting (Advanced) > Waiting room. (Note: It takes a while to scroll through all the options on this page, so we suggest you CTRL+F “waiting room” to find it quickly.) Toggle this off to remove the waiting room 14) Touch Up My Appearance. This is more on the spectrum of “fun” than “useful,” but I love that it’s a feature. In Settings > Video, check “Touch up my appearance,” and Zoom will soften the focus on your camera, theoretically minimizing any issues with your skin. Zoom Integrations. Zoom works seamlessly with other products you may already use. 15) Slack. We meet in Zoom, but we live in Slack. Which is why the Zoom/Slack integration is so helpful. You can use it to start Zoom meetings right from Slack. Just type “/zoom” in Slack to see all the options. We also use Slack’s recurring reminder feature to remind our team when the daily huddle is about to start, both 5 minutes in advance and right as the meeting is starting. To set this up, just type this into Slackbot:/remind #[roomname] every weekday at 9:55am that Daily Huddle is starting in 5 minutes! [zoom link] 16) Zapier. Zapier connects Zoom with hundreds of other apps, but perhaps the most useful integration of all is scheduling tools. When you schedule a meeting with someone, whether using Calendly or Google Calendar, rather than following up with that person to send them a Zoom meeting link, or manually updating the calendar invite with the link, you can have Zapier automatically add your Zoom link to the event, making meeting scheduling hands-free.

I hope these tips help you get as much out of it as we do. Soon enough, you’ll be able to meet just as easily as you did in person.

For the company that develops this software, see Zoom Video Communications.

The free plan allows up to 100 concurrent participants, with a 40-minute time restriction. Users have the option to upgrade by subscribing to a paid plan. The highest plan supports up to 1,000 concurrent participants for meetings lasting up to 30 hours.[2] During the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a major increase in the use of Zoom for remote work, distance education,[3] and online social relations.[4] The increase led to Zoom being the 5th most downloaded mobile app worldwide in 2020 at 477.3 million downloads.[5] Contents. 1 History 2 Features 3 Usage 4 Reception 4.1 Privacy 4.2 Security 4.2.1 Encryption practices 4.3 Data routing 4.4 Censorship 4.5 Transparency 4.6 Regulatory issues 5 See also 6 References 7 External links History[edit]. Zoom was originally founded in 2011.[6] Its headquarters are located in San Jose, California. Zoom also has offices in Europe, Asia, and Australia.[6] A beta version of Zoom—that could host conferences with only up to 15 video participants—was launched on August 21, 2012.[7] On January 25, 2013, version 1.0 of the program was released with an increase in the number of participants per conference to 25.[8] By the end of its first month, Zoom had 400,000 users, and rose to over one million users by May 2013.[9] After the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, by February 2020, Zoom had gained 2.22 million users in 2020 – more users than it amassed in the entirety of 2019[10] with the company's share price spiking by 35 percent.[11] In March 2020, the Zoom app was downloaded 2.13 million times.[12][13] In April 2020, Zoom had more than 300 million daily meeting participants.[14][15] On August 24, 2020, Zoom experienced widespread outages for several hours before service was restored.[16][17] Features[edit]. Zoom client version 5.5.0 running on Arch Linux Zoom is compatible with Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Chrome OS, and Linux. It is noted for its simple interface and usability, regardless of technological expertise.[18][19] Features include one-on-one meetings, group video conferences, screen sharing, plugins, browser extensions, and the ability to record meetings and have them automatically transcribed.[20] On some computers and operating systems, users are able to select a virtual background, which can be downloaded from different sites, to use as a backdrop behind themselves.[21] Use of the platform is free for video conferences of up to 100 participants at once, with a 40-minute time limit if there are more than two participants. For longer or larger conferences with more features, paid subscriptions are available, costing $15–20 per month. Features geared towards business conferences, such as Zoom Rooms, are available for $50–100 per month.[18][21][22] Up to 49 people can be seen on a desktop or laptop screen at once,[23] up to 4 people per screen in iPhone and Android mobile phones and tablet computers, and up to 16 people per screen on iPad. Zoom has several tiers: Basic, Pro, Business, and Enterprise.[24] Participants do not have to download the app if they are using Google Chrome or Firefox; they can click on a link and join from the browser. Users have to download the software in tablet computers and mobile phones with Android and iOS. Zoom security features include password-protected meetings, user authentication, waiting rooms, locked meetings, disabling participant screen sharing, randomly generated IDs, and the ability for the host to remove disruptive attendees.[25] As of June 2020, Zoom began offering end-to-end encryption to business and enterprise users, with AES 256 GCM encryption enabled for all users.[26] In October 2020, Zoom added end-to-end encryption for free and paid users. It's available on all platforms, except for the official Zoom web client.[27][28] Zoom also offers a transcription service using Otter.ai software that allows businesses to store transcriptions of the Zoom meetings online and search them, including separating and labeling different speakers.[29] As of July 2020, Zoom Rooms and Zoom Phone also became available as hardware as a service products.[30] Zoom Phone is available for domestic telephone service in 40 countries as of August 2020.[31] In January 2021, the company disclosed that it had sold 1 million seats for the Zoom Phone service.[32] Zoom for Home, a category of products designed for home use, became available in August 2020.[33] In September 2020, Zoom added new accessibility features to make the app easier to use for those who are deaf, hard of hearing, or visually impaired. New features include the ability to move around video windows in gallery view, pin video windows to be spotlighted; improved keyboard shortcuts; new tools to adjust the size of closed captioning text; and sign language interpreters' windows can now sit directly next to the speaker.[34] In October 2020 at Zoomtopia, Zoom's annual user conference, the company unveiled OnZoom, a virtual event marketplace with an integrated payment system where users can host and promote free or paid live events.[35][36] With OnZoom, users will be able to schedule and host one-time events or event series for up to 1,000 attendees, and sell tickets online.[37] The company also announced Zoom Apps, a feature integrating third-party apps so they can be used within the Zoom interface during meetings. The first such apps were expected to be available around the end of 2020, from companies including Slack, Salesforce, Dropbox.[35][37] and Qatalog. In October 2020, Zoom gave its users better security with an upgrade to end-to-end encryption for its online meetings network.[38] On March 22, 2021, Zoom announced that it would start selling its videoconferencing technology as a white-label product, so other companies can embed it in their own products, with the calls running over Zoom but not carrying the company's brand name.[39] In August 2021, Zoom launched a new feature called Focus Mode. It is designed for use in digital classrooms and other educational settings. When active, the mode will hide participants' screens from each other (though they can see each other's names) while the host retains the ability to see everyone's camera stream or screen share. The feature is available across all Zoom accounts, including free ones.[40][41] In September 2021 at Zoomtopia, the company announced that end-to-end encryption would now be available as an upgrade for Zoom Phone users. The company also announced Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) (for users to manage their own encryption keys that Zoom cannot access or see), Verified Identity (a multi-factor authentication feature working through Okta that allows users to confirm the identity of meeting participants), and Video Engagement Center (for businesses to digitally interact with customers).[42][43] Other announced updates include revamped virtual whiteboard features, including touchscreen whiteboards that can be digitized for remote participants, and improved collaboration between Zoom Meetings and Zoom Chat.[44] In October 2021, the option to automatically generate closed captions in English for Zoom meetings was expanded to all accounts, including free ones. The feature had previously only been available for Premium users.[45] Usage[edit]. In July 2020, using Zoom, the International Association of Constitutional Law and Alma Mater Europaea organized the first round-the-clock and round-the-globe event that traveled through time zones. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom has been used by banks, schools,[46] universities, and government agencies around the world,[47] by the UK Parliament,[48] by healthcare professionals for telemedicine,[49] barbershops,[50] and ceremonies such as birthday parties,[51] funeral services,[52] and bar and bat mitzvah services.[53][54] Zoom formed a partnership with Formula One to create a virtual club where fans can go behind the scenes and take part in virtual activities through Zoom, beginning with the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 19, 2020.[55][56] An article published in July 2020 in the San Francisco Chronicle noted a new real estate trend in San Francisco and Oakland where some listings include "Zoom rooms" with backdrops for Zoom calls.[57] People were complaining about "zoom fatigue"[58] (too many video calls) before they had their "zoom happy hour" (online social meeting with friends or colleagues).[58] Richard Nelson's play What Do We Need to Talk About? takes place on Zoom, with its main characters congregating online during the COVID-19 pandemic using Zoom. Written and directed by Nelson, it was commissioned by The Public Theater and premiered on YouTube on April 29, 2020, as a benefit performance. The New Yorker called it "the first great original play of quarantine".[59] Oprah's Your Life in Focus: A Vision Forward was a live virtual experience hosted by Oprah Winfrey on Zoom from May 16 through June 6, 2020.[60] In Source Material's play In These Uncertain Times, directed by Samantha Shay, characters communicate on Zoom. The play premiered on Zoom on July 25, 2020.[61] In the 2020 British found-footage Zoom-based horror film Host, directed by Rob Savage, a group of young people have a remote séance in which they try contacting spirits over Zoom. It premiered on Shudder in July 2020.[62][63] A live reading of Kristoffer Diaz's 2009 play The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity over Zoom streamed on Play-PerView from August 15–20, 2020.[64][65] In the 2021 film Locked Down, directed by Doug Liman and starring Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor, characters communicate through Zoom conferences.[66] On July 3–4, using Zoom Webinar, the International Association of Constitutional Law and Alma Mater Europaea organized the first "round-the-clock and round-the-globe" event that traveled through time zones, featuring 52 speakers from 28 countries.[67][68] Soon after, a format of conferences that "virtually travel the globe with the sun from East to West",[69] became common, some of them running for several days.[70][71][72][73] On September 17, 2020, a live table read of the script for the 1982 film Fast Times at Ridgemont High was hosted by Dane Cook, with performers including Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, original cast member Sean Penn, Matthew McConaughey, Shia LaBeouf, Morgan Freeman (who served as the narrator), Jimmy Kimmel, Ray Liotta, and John Legend, to raise money for the charity CORE.[74][75] The broadcast of the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20, 2020, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, featured nominees participating through Zoom.[76] On an alternate music video for the 2020 single "Ice Cream" by Blackpink featuring Selena Gomez, the artists appeared via Zoom from their homes.[77] The series Zoom Where It Happens, airing on Zoom as a partnership between Zoom and Black female artists, launched in September 2020 with a virtual table read of an episode of The Golden Girls, reimagined with an all-Black cast. The second episode featured an all-Black cast in a table read of an episode of Friends, hosted by Gabrielle Union and featuring Sterling K. Brown and Uzo Aduba.[78][79] Reception[edit]. Zoom has been criticized for "security lapses and poor design choices" that have resulted in heightened scrutiny of its software.[80][81] Many of Zoom's issues "surround deliberate features designed to reduce friction in meetings," which Citizen Lab found to "also, by design, reduce privacy or security."[82][83] In March 2020, New York State Attorney General Letitia James launched an inquiry into Zoom's privacy and security practices,[84] the inquiry was closed on May 7, 2020, with Zoom not admitting wrongdoing, but agreeing to take added security measures.[85] In April 2020, CEO Yuan apologized for the security issues, stating that some of the issues were a result of Zoom's having been designed for "large institutions with full IT support,"[86] he noted that in December 2019, Zoom had a maximum of 10 million daily users, and in March 2020 the software had more than 200 million daily users, bringing the company increased challenges.[87] Zoom agreed to focus on data privacy and issue a transparency report.[88][89][90][91] In April 2020, the company released Zoom version 5.0, which addressed a number of the security and privacy concerns. It includes passwords by default, improved encryption, and a new security icon for meetings.[92] In September 2020, Zoom added support for two-factor authentication to its desktop and mobile apps; the security feature was previously Web-only.[93] As of April 2020, businesses, schools, and government entities who have restricted or prohibited the use of Zoom on their networks include Google,[94] Siemens,[95] the Australian Defence Force, the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs, SpaceX, and the New York City Department of Education.[96][97] In May 2020, the New York City Department of Education lifted their ban on Zoom after the company addressed security and privacy concerns.[98] By September 2020, Zoom had 370,200 institutional customers with more than 10 employees, up about 458 percent from the same quarter to the year before. The company's revenue rose 355 percent to $663.5 million, topping analysts' average estimate of $500.5 million. They were able to raise their annual revenue forecast by more than 30 percent after many of their free users converted to paid subscriptions.[99] During the pandemic, Zoom's profit increased by 4000% despite paying zero taxes according to a report by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, leading to controversies.[100] Privacy[edit]. Zoom has been criticized for its privacy and corporate data sharing policies, as well as enabling video hosts to potentially violate the privacy of those participating in their calls.[101][102][103] There may also be issues with unauthorized surveillance of students and possible violations of students' rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).[104] According to the company, the video services are FERPA-compliant, and it collects and stores user data only for tech support.[104] In March 2020, a Motherboard article found that the company's iOS app was sending device analytics data to Facebook on startup, regardless of whether a Facebook account was being used with the service, and without disclosing it to the user.[105] Zoom responded that it had recently been made aware of the issue and patched the app to remove the SDK after learning that it was collecting unnecessary device data. The company stated that the SDK was only collecting information on the user's device specifications (such as model names and operating system versions) in order to optimize its service and that it was not collecting personal information.[21][106][107] In the same month, Zoom was sued by a user in U.S. Federal Court for illegally and secretly disclosing personal data to third parties including Facebook.[108] Zoom responded that it "has never sold user data in the past and has no intention of selling users' data going forward."[109] In April 2020, a Zoom information gathering feature was found that automatically sent user names and email addresses to LinkedIn, allowing some participants to surreptitiously access LinkedIn profile data about other users without their express consent.[110] The companies disabled their integration.[111] In May 2020, the Federal Trade Commission announced that it was looking into Zoom's privacy practices.[112] The FTC alleged in a complaint[113] that since at least 2016, "Zoom maintained the cryptographic keys that could allow Zoom to access the content of its customers' meetings, did not provide advertised end-to-end encryption, falsely claimed HIPAA compliance, installed the ZoomOpener webserver without adequate consent, did not uninstall the web server after uninstalling the Zoom App, and secured its Zoom Meetings with a lower level of encryption than promised."[114] On November 9, 2020, a settlement was reached, requiring the company to stop misrepresenting security features, create an information security program, obtain biannual assessments by a third party, and implement additional security measures.[115] Security[edit]. Further information: Zoombombing In November 2018, a security vulnerability was discovered that allowed a remote unauthenticated attacker to spoof UDP messages that allowed the attacker to remove attendees from meetings, spoof messages from users, or hijack shared screens.[116][117] The company released fixes shortly after the vulnerability was discovered.[118] In July 2019, security researcher Jonathan Leitschuh disclosed a zero-day vulnerability allowing any website to force a macOS user to join a Zoom call, with their video camera activated, without the user's permission.[119] Attempts to uninstall the Zoom client on macOS would prompt the software to re-install automatically in the background using a hidden web server that was set up on the machine during the first installation so that it remains active even after attempting to remove the client. After receiving public criticism, Zoom removed the vulnerability and the hidden webserver to allow complete uninstallation.[120] In April 2020, security researchers found vulnerabilities where Windows users' credentials could be exposed.[121][122] Another vulnerability allowing unprompted access to cameras and microphones was made public.[123][124] Zoom issued a fix in April 2020.[125] In the same month, "Zoombombing," when an unwanted participant joins a meeting to cause disruption, prompted a warning from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.[126][127][128][129] Motherboard reported that there were two Zoom zero-days for macOS and Windows respectively, selling for $500,000, on April 15, 2020.[130] Security bug brokers were selling access to Zoom security flaws that could allow remote access into users' computers.[19] Hackers also put up over 500,000 Zoom user names and passwords for sale on the dark web.[19] In response to the multitude of security and privacy issues found, Zoom began a comprehensive security plan, which included consulting with Luta Security, Trail of Bits, former Facebook CSO Alex Stamos, former Google global lead of privacy technology Lea Kissner, BishopFox, the NCC Group, and Johns Hopkins University cryptographer Matthew D. Green.[131] On April 20, 2020, the New York Times reported that Dropbox engineers had traced Zoom's security vulnerabilities back over two years, pushing Zoom to address such issues more quickly, and paying top hackers to find problems with Zoom's software. In the same article, the New York Times noted that security researchers have praised Zoom for improving its response times, and for quickly patching recent bugs and removing features that could have privacy risks.[19] In April 2020, Zoom made many of its security settings default settings, and they advised users on ways to mitigate Zoombombing.[18][21] In a blog post on April 1, 2020, Yuan announced a 90-day freeze on releasing new features, to focus on fixing privacy and security issues within the platform.[132] The company created a new "report a user to Zoom" button, intended to catch those behind Zoombombing attacks.[133] On July 1, 2020, at the end of the freeze, the company stated it had released 100 new safety features over the 90-day period. Those efforts include end-to-end encryption for all users, turning on meeting passwords by default, giving users the ability to choose which data centers calls are routed from, consulting with security experts, forming a CISO council, an improved bug bounty program, and working with third parties to help test security. Yuan also stated that Zoom would be sharing a transparency report later in 2020.[134][135] On 16 November 2020, Zoom announced a new security feature to combat disruptions during a session. The new feature was said to be a default for all free and paid users and made available on the Zoom clients for Mac, PC, and Linux, as well as Zoom mobile apps.[136] Encryption practices[edit]. Zoom encrypts its public data streams, using TLS 1.2 with AES-256 (Advanced Encryption Standard) to protect signaling, and AES-128 to protect streaming media.[137] Security researchers and reporters have criticized the company for its lack of transparency and poor encryption practices. Zoom initially claimed to use "end-to-end encryption" in its marketing materials,[138] but later clarified it meant "from Zoom end point to Zoom end point" (meaning effectively between Zoom servers and Zoom clients), which The Intercept described as misleading and "dishonest."[139] Alex Stamos, a Zoom advisor who was formerly security chief at Facebook, noted that a lack of end-to-end encryption is common in such products, as it is also true of Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, and Cisco Webex.[140] On May 7, 2020, Zoom announced that it had acquired Keybase, a company specializing in end-to-end encryption, as part of an effort to strengthen its security practices moving forward.[141][142] Later that month, Zoom published a document for peer review, detailing its plans to ultimately bring end-to-end encryption to the software.[143] In April 2020, Citizen Lab researchers discovered that a single, server-generated AES-128 key is being shared between all participants in ECB mode, which is deprecated due to its pattern-preserving characteristics of the ciphertext.[144] During test calls between participants in Canada and United States, the key was provisioned from servers located in mainland China where they are subject to the China Internet Security Law.[82] On June 3, 2020, Zoom announced that users on their free tier will not have access to end-to-end encryption so that they could cooperate with the FBI and law enforcement.[145] Later, they said that they do not "proactively monitor meeting content".[146] On June 17, 2020, the company reversed course and announced that free users would have access to end-to-end encryption after all.[147] On September 7, 2020, cryptography researcher Nadim Kobeissi accused Zoom's security team of failing to credit his open-source protocol analysis research software, Verifpal, with being instrumental during the design phase of Zoom's new encryption protocol, as described in their whitepaper published in June 2020.[148] Kobeissi published a week's worth of conversations with Zoom's security leadership in support of his claim, including Max Krohn, which included eight Verifpal models that Zoom's team asked for feedback on, promises of a citation to credit Kobeissi for his contributions and an admission that the Verifpal citation was pulled from the whitepaper at the last moment for unspecified reasons. Kobeissi also linked to a tweet by Zoom security consultant Lea Kissner which he described as a public character assassination attempt issued in response to his repeated requests to have his work cited in the research paper published by Zoom.[149] Data routing[edit]. Zoom admitted that some calls in early April 2020 and prior were mistakenly routed through servers in mainland China, prompting some governments and businesses to cease their usage of Zoom.[150] The company later announced that data of free users outside of China would "never be routed through China" and that paid subscribers will be able to customize which data center regions they want to use. The company has data centers in Europe, Asia, North America, and Latin America.[151][152] Censorship[edit]. See also: Zoom Video Communications § Censorship, Overseas censorship of Chinese issues, and Internet censorship in China An April 2020 Citizen Lab report warned that having much of Zoom's research and development in China could "open up Zoom to pressure from Chinese authorities."[82] Lee Cheuk Yan's (Chairman of Hong Kong Labour Party) account was also closed in early May 2020, and human rights activist Zhou Fengsuo's was closed in June after he held an event discussing the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and massacre.[153][154] In June 2020, Zoom acknowledged that it had terminated two accounts belonging to U.S. users and one of a user from Hong Kong connected to meetings discussing 1989 Tiananmen Square protests,[155] the accounts were later re-opened, with the company stating that in the future it "will have a new process for handling similar situations."[156] Zoom also announced upcoming technology that could prevent participants from specific countries from joining calls that were deemed illegal in those areas.[155] In September 2020, Zoom blocked San Francisco State University from using its video conferencing software to host Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) militant and hijacker Leila Khaled in response to vigorous lobbying by the Jewish coalition group "End Jewish Hatred." In justifying its decision, Zoom cited the PFLP's designation as a terrorist organization by the United States Government and its efforts to comply with U.S. export control, sanctions, and anti-terrorism laws. Facebook and YouTube also joined Zoom in denying their platforms to the conference organizers. Professor Rabab Ibrahim Abdulhadi, one of the conference organizers, criticized Zoom, Facebook, and Google for allegedly censoring Palestinian voices.[157][158][159] Transparency[edit]. On December 18, 2020, Zoom announced it would be issuing its first transparency report. These reports will be published twice a year beginning in 2021. These reports are supposed to show how Zoom responds when user data is requested by law enforcement or government officials. Zoom states that it "only produces user data to governments in response to valid and lawful requests in accordance with our Government Requests Guide and relevant legal policies."[160] The first report covers from May 1, 2020, to December 12, 2020. Regulatory issues[edit]. In August 2021, the Data Protection regulatory body in Hamburg, Germany, ruled that Zoom is operating in the European Union in breach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is due to the fact that, as per the Schrems II ruling, data that is being transferred out of the EU must be given the same protections that provided by GDPR. The data gathered by Zoom is being sent to the United States.[161] See also[edit].

BodyThe complete Zoom guide: From basic help to advanced tricks Video conferencing has never been so critical to our work and personal lives. Here's everything you need to make your meetings more productive. Written by Charlie Osborne, Contributor Charlie Osborne Contributor Charlie Osborne is a cybersecurity journalist and photographer who writes for ZDNet and CNET from London. PGP Key: AF40821B. Full Bio on January 6, 2021 | Topic: Working from home: The future of business is remote Zoom tips: How to use virtual backgrounds, breakout rooms, and more Watch Now Offices closed. Travel was restricted. Employers scrambled to knock together hasty virtual setups and access to corporate networks for workers required to work from home.  Zoom Tips from techrepublic . How to turn on virtual backgrounds How to hide and unhide video How to record a Zoom meeting How to share documents onscreen How to transfer files during a meeting At the beginning of 2020, few predicted that the spread of COVID-19 would have such an effect on our daily lives, our work environments, and day-to-day business operations. In the new year, little has changed.Also: Best VPNsAs the coronavirus outbreak spread worldwide, we became reliant on our household internet connections to keep working.There are many freelancers and contractors out there who are used to remote work; however, countless employees once based in the office are now left to master the tools available for teleconferencing on their own.  Once, Skype was a key tool for communicating remotely. However, Microsoft's software has been overtaken by Zoom, a video communications platform that many of us at ZDNet consider easier to use, more lightweight, and without the same spam problems.  One of Zoom's key strengths is its simplicity, but this does not mean that the platform is without a variety of advanced features that remote workers will find useful for improving their productivity. Below, we'll show you how to get started, and also offer some tips and tricks that experienced users may be missing out on.  Let's get started: Zoom basics . First of all, head over to Zoom in your browser. The platform is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. The layout will be slightly different depending on whether you are on desktop or mobile.  There are four plans available; the most popular now likely being the free tier, in which virtual meetings can be held with up to 100 participants, 1-on-1 meetings without a time limit are possible, and meetings with multiple participants can be held for up to 40 minutes. (When your time is up, you can simply restart a meeting if need be.) Remote work .

(ZDNet YouTube) The free option also allows users to conduct meetings in HD video and with audio, participants can join via their PC or a telephone line, and both desktops and apps can be shared. Also: Best video conferencing software for business in 2021 Zoom's Pro, Business and Enterprise packages come with additional features, including an increase in meeting duration limits, cloud recording and storage, Skype for Business interoperability, single sign-on options, and company branding.    It is possible to join a meeting just from your browser, but in the interests of longevity and avoiding browser limitations, you should download the application.  Also:  Work from home: Build a super-functional home office for $1,000 Coronavirus and home working: Cybercriminals shift focus to target remote workers All the free online resources parents need in home 'schooling' during coronavirus outbreakTo start using Zoom, make your choice (browser or a direct download) and then sign up. You will be prompted to type in your work email -- but any will do -- or sign in through either Google or Facebook.  At the next prompt, Zoom will ask for permission to send resources including product videos and how-to guides your way. Either click "confirm" or "Set Preferences;" the latter option being to receive emails once a week, once a month, or never. Make your selection.  By now, a confirmation email should have landed in your inbox. Open the message, click "Activate Account" or paste the included confirmation link into your browser, and then at the next prompt, you will need to complete account creation with your name and a strong password.  If you wish, on the next screen, you can invite your colleagues to also create an account. If not, click "Skip this step." Now you can choose to create a test meeting if you like, as well as add Zoom as an extension. There are various plugins available including a Google Chrome extension, Mozilla Firefox extension, Microsoft Outlook plugin, and IBM Notes plugin. If you will be using Zoom for the foreseeable future for work purposes, you may want to select and install appropriate add-ons now.  Once you've launched your test meeting, you will be met with a screen similar to below, containing the meeting's URL and the option to invite others. We will go through the core features of the meeting system in a moment, but for now, let's head over to the web portal, zoom.us, to make sure that the correct settings are enabled -- and that you know how to create and launch a meeting.  The web portal . On the Zoom website, head to "Your Account" in the top-right to manage your profile. You can change details under the "Profile" tab such as your name, picture, default meeting ID, password and time zone.  Next, head to "Settings." Here, you can adjust settings implemented by default, including whether or not video is automatically enabled when you -- or participants -- join a meeting; and whether or not participants can join a scheduled meeting before the host arrives. Also: 250+ tips for telecommuting and managing remote workers TechRepublic PremiumIn the interests of security and to prevent scammers from hijacking a meeting, you should make sure you use strong passwords.  Passwords were not always enabled by default, but after Zoom founder Eric Yuan apologized for "falling short of the community's -- and our own -- privacy and security expectations," a rush of security changes were made, including the enabling, by default, of passwords for scheduled, instant, and personal meetings.Next up is audio type. You can pick telephone and computer audio or one or the other to be automatically permitted. However, given the rapid rise of users, Zoom has warned: "Due to increased demand, dial-in by phone audio conferencing capabilities may be temporarily removed from free Basic account[s]. During this time, we strongly recommend using our computer audio capabilities." You can also decide whether or not to allow public and private chats when you host a meeting; you can give permission for files to be transferred, and who can share their screen -- just the host, or participants, too.  There are other, more advanced controls, but these are the main settings you should be aware of for now.  The Zoom desktop app has a similar layout, with "Settings" accessible from the top-right corner. The options you can access here are related to your PC, such as whether or not you want to use dual monitors or automatically enter a full-screen mode when a meeting starts.  You can also test your microphone and speaker setup, choose a color theme, select a default location for recordings, and tweak accessibility controls, among other functions.  With your basic preferences in place, let's go to the "Meetings" tab in your profile.  Scheduling and hosting a meeting  . The first screen you will see reveals any scheduled meetings in your diary. Click "schedule a new meeting" and a new screen will appear, in which you can name your meeting, add a description if you want, and choose the date or time.   If this is to be a continual meet up with colleagues, there is a handy "recurring meeting" checkbox under the timezone tab. If you select it, you can then choose how often the meeting needs to be repeated -- whether daily, weekly, and monthly.  Once you have input these details, scroll down and click "save."  The meeting is set, but how do you invite others?  . The short answer is: you must do so manually. There are two ways to do this: through calendar invites, or via your own email account.  If you wish to invite others through a calendar, links to Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar, and Yahoo Calendar are displayed once your meeting has been saved.  Alternatively, next to the "join URL" link on this screen, there is an option to "copy this invitation." SEE: The future of work: Tools and strategies for the digital workplace (ZDNet/TechRepublic special feature) | Download the free PDF version (TechRepublic)Clicking on this page element brings up a screen with all of the important information required for the meeting, including the URL, of which the meeting ID is already embedded. Copy this to your clipboard, open your email client, paste the details into a new message, and invite away.  So, in short, all participants need is the meeting URL, date and time, and a password if applicable.  If you want to try out features before bringing other people in, create a test meeting at this stage and select "Start this meeting." Alternatively, you can do exactly the same within the first page of the Zoom desktop app: ×screenshot-2020-03-28-at-14-53-14.png. The first prompt, in either case, will ask you to join with computer audio if you are on PC, and will also give you the option to test your speaker and microphone. At the top right of the meeting window, you can choose to go full screen.  We are now going to go over the basic settings you need to know about in meetings for management purposes. Two fundamental options can be found in the bottom-left part of the black menu tab: the option to mute/unmute your microphone and either start/stop your camera. If you are using an external microphone, speaker, or camera, open up the arrow tabs next to these options to choose which equipment you want to use (external or inbuilt).  Moving on, the "Manage Participants" tab is particularly important. Under this tab, you can find "invite," which is useful if you've forgotten to bring someone into a session. ×screenshot-2020-03-28-at-12-53-44.png. Clicking this option will bring up a box with everyone connected to the meeting. If you hover over a name, you can mute/unmute them, and at the bottom, there are options for doing the same for every participant. In the interests of privacy, however, hosts and other participants cannot control individual camera feeds.  A handy feature to note here under "More" is "lock," which stops anyone else from joining an active session.  Speaker or Gallery view: At the top, you can pick one of two view options -- but this only impacts how you view a meeting, and not others. By default, Active Speaker is the default video layout -- in which the person talking is ramped up to a larger screen -- but there is also a gallery layout that brings in every participant on one screen through a grid.  The "Share Screen" tab has a number of interesting features. When selected, under "Basic," you can choose to share your PC screen with others, including your full desktop, browser, or open applications. There is also a whiteboard option that can be annotated -- we will talk about this more shortly -- and it is possible to share iPhone screens if you are on the move, too.  Under "Advanced," you can share a screen portion, music or sound only, or content from a second, connected camera.  There is also a file-sharing tab under "share screen" (shown under "Files"), which includes application links to Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, and Box. ×screenshot-2020-03-30-at-12-07-39.png.  As a host, you can also use the arrow next to the "Share Screen" tab to control whether participants are limited to one screen share at a time, or alternatively, you can give permission for multiple screens to be shared at once.  Now, let's talk about messaging. The "Chat" tab on the main bar is designed for users to type out questions and messages, as well as share files either hosted by cloud storage providers or stored directly on your PC. As a host, you can also select the "..." button to save a chat session and control who participants can talk to -- no one, the host alone, everyone publicly, or everyone publicly and privately.  The final tab of note is the "Record" option, which you may want to use if you are discussing work matters and want to save the session in order to email a copy of it to others later. By default, no one except the host can record a session unless the host gives permission to do so. (More: Check out TechRepublic's guide to recording Zoom meetings.) Finally, the "End Meeting" tab finishes the session. If the host needs to leave but the meeting should carry on, they can assign the host status to another participant -- but enabling co-hosts has to be selected first in the "Meetings" tab and can only be selected by subscription holders. Alternatively, you can leave the meeting or end the meeting for all.  The security tab. The company added a "Security" icon for meeting hosts to more easily access settings including lock, waiting room, and remove participants. Under this tab, scattershot security settings are now clustered together. This includes the "lock meeting" function, whether or not to enable the "waiting room," and participant control -- allowing or disabling screen sharing, chat functions, renaming, and annotating. In addition, you can quickly remove gatecrashers or disruptive participants. Advanced tips and tricks . Now that the basics have been covered, there is a range of settings and features that more experienced users might want to use.  Let's head back over to the web portal to run through a few options. If you are using the desktop application, you can quickly access this area by going to "Settings" -- > "View More Settings." Under "Settings," select "In Meeting: Advanced," to find features including: Breakout room: split meeting participants into separate, smaller rooms. This can also be done before a meeting begins to prevent logistical problemsRemote support: allows a host to provide 1:1 support to a participantCamera control: you can allow a participant to take remote control of your cameraShow a "Join from your browser" link: a workaround for users that can't download Zoom softwareInvitation languages: You can choose from a variety of languages for meeting invitations, including English, Spanish, French, and Russian. Virtual backgrounds: enabling/disabling Waiting room: a feature to keep participants in a 'waiting area' until the host is ready for them -- particularly handy for remote interviews or office hours. This feature is now on as default for education, Basic, and single-license Pro accounts. Webinars . If you have a Pro, Business, or Enterprise plan, you can take advantage of the webinars option. Webinars can be set up that broadcast to up to 10,000 view-only attendees at a time. Screens, video, and audio can be shared; chat sessions between attendees and panelists can be hosted, and webinars can be run on either a pre-registration or open basis.  Virtual Backgrounds . Virtual backgrounds can be used to hide the chaos and clutter of your home. There are specific hardware requirements, which can be accessed here. Most modern PC setups should be able to manage -- but the virtual background works best with a green screen and uniform lighting. To set up a virtual background, go to the desktop app, "Settings," and choose "Virtual Background." You will be prompted to download a virtual background package -- just once -- and then you can try out different screens or add your own image/video instead. You may see a warning that says your hardware isn't good enough -- but give it a go, anyway.  Once you've enabled and selected a virtual background, while in a meeting, you can toggle them off/on next to the "Stop Video" tab.

This is a useful option if you are canvassing ideas or soliciting feedback and it comes with different annotation options, including text boxes, arrows, and more. The "spotlight" is a form of highlighter which can be used to bring user attention to a particular area or point. What about Zoom gatecrashers? . When software is popular, scammers come out of the woodwork to try and find a way to capitalize. Zoom is no different; the appearance of scammers jumping into unprotected meetings and posting malicious links and pornography has given rise to the phrase "Zoom-bombing." The problem has become common enough for Zoom to publish a guide on how to prevent gatecrashers from disrupting your meetings, including pointers such as: Keep your meeting links off social mediaChoose "only host" for screen sharing control during a meetingOnly allow signed-in users to join a meetingUse the "lock" feature to prevent random users from joining in. You might also want to consider using the Waiting Room.If you are gatecrashed, hover over the user's name in the Participants menu to bring up a "remove" option.Zoom security. Since the video conferencing software's popularity exploded due to COVID-19, the vendor has been working on improving the security of the software, together with the help of researchers and security experts. The company has introduced a range of new measures, including:Permitting meeting hosts to configure minimum meeting password requirements Changing the 9-digit setup for randomly-generated meeting IDs to 10 or 11 digitsRemoving Facebook's iOS SDK client to stop unnecessary data collectionImplementing new ways to deal with gatecrashersResolving vulnerabilities in the Zoom installer and Windows clientUsing personal meeting IDs (PMIs) can now be disabledShowing profile pictures can be disabledAn expiration date for cloud recordings can be set, as well as whether or not they can be shared Zoom plugins and integrations . To extend the video platform's functionality, Zoom offers a variety of plugins and extensions to make meeting scheduling and joining more convenient. At present, there is a Microsoft Outlook extension, Chrome browser extension, Mozilla Firefox add-on, Skype for Business plugin, and IBM Notes plugin available.  The guides for each are below: Microsoft Outlook plugin, add-inChrome extensionFirefox add-onSkype for BusinessIBM NotesSlack: Zoom integration with Slack is also possible for subscribers. The app can be downloaded here. Zoom Rooms . Zoom Rooms is a more advanced software offering available as a $49 per month subscription. (There is also a 30-day free trial.) Zoom Rooms, an option for business owners, combines audio conferencing, video conferencing, and wireless screen sharing. A PC running Zoom Rooms is the bare minimum requirement, but iPads, TV displays, and external speakers, cameras, microphones can all be integrated within one room.  You can find the Rooms client and controller software (iOS, Android, or Windows) in the Zoom Download Center.  Additional points . When screen sharing, the "optimize option" is especially useful when sharing YouTube and other online videos as it can prevent distortion, lagging, and buffering issues. Hot Keys and keyboard shortcuts are available for Mac and Windows machines. A full list can be found here. Meeting times: If you are experiencing connection issues at peak times, consider scheduling a meeting at times other than on-the-hour or on a half-hour. Need training for specific purposes, such as for education? Zoom offers over 30 live training sessions per week. If you need additional technical support, Zoom has an online help center.  Zoom's best practices .

BodyPrivacy Considerations When Using Zoom Guidance on Protecting Privacy and Data when using Zoom to conduct remote meetings while COVID-19 Modifications are in effect.  This guidance applies to administrative meetings; guidelines for use of Zoom for instruction can be viewed here A. Purpose and Principles. Zoom is one of the primary approved software tools for conducting remote/virtual meetings. This document provides basic guidance on how to protect your privacy and the privacy of others when using Zoom Click on the hyperlinks throughout this document for quick access to important use instructions. Note: For more general information on best practices for working remotely, please consult the Information Security Office’s Best Practices for Telecommuting Page.  For privacy guidance related to working remotely consult theCampus Privacy Office Homepage UC Berkeley’s Privacy Values:  Privacy is a basis for an ethical and respectful workplace; and privacy, together with information security, underpins the University’s ability to be a good steward of the information entrusted to it by its students and employees.  The University protects the privacy of faculty, students and staff while working or participating in educational programs and other university business. Use of remote delivery software and technologies heightens the criticality of privacy and the need to use the least invasive means of engaging in these alternative methods of conducting our activities. Existing law and policy that address privacy remain in effect when we work remotely. Remember that UC Berkeley Security Policies and Standards do apply to any computer you use for your Zoom session. For more specific information regarding UC Berkeley’s Security Policies and Standards, consult theInformation Security Office’s Policy Home Page All University staff, faculty and students should follow these principles when using Zoom to conduct remote meetings: B. Technical Tips and Privacy Protections for Video Conferencing. Visibility of Remote Work Locations:  Participants should use Zoom’s virtual background feature, when available, if they do not want to have their surroundings visible.  Managers should avoid requiring staff to use Zoom meeting settings that leave staff living areas visible.   To set up a Virtual Background in Zoom click the up arrow by the Zoom video icon and click on “Choose Virtual Background”. Select only appropriate virtual backgrounds. Be mindful of others in your remote location who may not wish to be visible or recorded in the background. Also consider if all participants need to be visible as limiting the meeting to a single video stream can ease bandwidth concerns for participants. Ensure sensitive conversations cannot be overheard or work observed by unauthorized persons. Screen Sharing Privacy Protecting Confidential Data on Your Device from Being Viewed: Avoid sharing confidential information visible on your other screens.  Before screen sharing, close all applications, emails and documents that you will not use in that session. Managing Whose Screen is Visible:   Zoom default settings for the campus are set to limit screen sharing to the host. The host can also allow screen sharing by participants.  Options are available by clicking on the up arrow by the Share Screen icon. The host can select the “host only” setting to prevent others from sharing their screens. If the host determines that screen sharing by participants is needed, sharing by “one participant at a time” should be selected.  The host should remind participants not to share other sensitive information during the meeting inadvertently. Managing Participants Some basic tips for limited preventing unwanted attendees or Zoom Bombing are listed below: Don’t post meeting IDs in public forums. Don’t reuse meeting access codes. You can generate a new access code for each meeting. Monitor participant list for unwanted attendees Using Zoom settings for meeting participants, the meeting host can: Limit attendance to participants who are signed in to the meeting using the email listed in the meeting invited Set up a Waiting Room Function Password protect meeting access Lock meetings once they start Mute participants who are not presenting Remove unwanted participants Disable private chat Note: For more detailed instructions for how to prevent unauthorized access to your meeting in Zoom, consult the Information Security Office’s Settings for Preventing Zoom Bombing Page. For further privacy features and options for Zoom see:https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2020/03/20/keep-the-party-crashers-from-crashing-your-zoom-event/ C. Recording of Zoom Meetings and Chats. Recording of Meetings – Notice/Consent: Do I need to obtain meeting attendee permission to capture their video and save sessions? Yes. Some US states (including California) are “two party” or “all party” consent states, which generally require the permission of both or all parties involved in a recording. While attendees participating remotely may be coming from a variety of states (or countries), we must assume the “all party” consent rule applies. Meeting hosts should always inform attendees at the start of the meeting or in advance of the meeting if they are going to record a meeting.   Zoom automatically notifies attendees present at the start of a meeting if the meeting is being recorded.  However, meeting hosts should also verbally notify attendees that a meeting will be recorded.  Meeting hosts may also choose to explicitly require consent to be recorded via Zoom.  Attendees who do not consent will be denied access to the meeting, so we suggest its use only after you’ve communicated with your attendees, given them a chance to express any concerns, and determined an alternative for individuals who have not consented. We recommend that you inform meeting attendees, prior to a recorded meeting, how you intend to record, use, and share video. You may also consider giving attendees options to participate without having their image or voice recorded, such as allowing them to attend with no video or audio, and the option to pose questions only in the text chat window. Because you can start and stop recordings in Zoom at any time, you can choose to include unrecorded time throughout your Zoom session, giving attendees an opportunity to discuss topics or ask questions that they do not wish to have recorded.  As a general rule, staff meetings should not be recorded absent an articulated business purpose (including as a reasonable accommodation) that requires recording of the meeting.  Generally, you should not record a meeting if the same meeting would not be recorded if it occurred in person.  If a staff meeting is going to be recorded, hosts should inform attendees that the meeting will be recorded in advance of the meeting and also offer attendees the opportunity to opt out of the meeting or to mute their audio and video if they object to the recording of their image or voice.  Please consider whether it is necessary to record the meeting.  Bear in mind that the recording becomes a University record that must be stored and retained appropriately and may be subject to disclosure upon request (e.g., in response to a request under the California Public Records Act or California’s Information Practices Act).   If you believe it is necessary to record a meeting, but one or more participants object to the recording, please consult your People & Culture representative. D. Disability Accommodations . For guidance regarding accessibility and Zoom, see the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Zoom Accessibility Considerations page. If you have specific questions regarding employee disability accommodations in connection with use of Zoom, please consultUC Berkeley Disability Access and Compliance E. Privacy Data Protections with Zoom. Zoom’s Updated Privacy Policy states: We do not sell your personal data. Whether you are a business or a school or an individual user, we do not sell your data.   Your meetings are yours. We do not monitor them or even store them after your meeting is done unless we are requested to record and store them by the meeting host. We alert participants via both audio and video when they join meetings if the host is recording a meeting, and participants have the option to leave the meeting.   When the meeting is recorded, it is, at the host’s choice, stored either locally on the host’s machine or in our Zoom cloud. We have robust and validated access controls to prevent unauthorized access to meeting recordings saved to the Zoom cloud. Zoom collects only the user data that is required to provide you Zoom services. This includes technical and operational support and service improvement. For example, we collect information such as a user’s IP address and OS and device details to deliver the best possible Zoom experience to you regardless of how and from where you join.    We do not use data we obtain from your use of our services, including your meetings, for any advertising. We do use data we obtain from you when you visit our marketing websites, such as zoom.us and zoom.com. You have control over your own cookie settings when visiting our marketing websites. We are particularly focused on protecting the privacy of K-12 users. Both Zoom’s Privacy Policy (attached) and Zoom’s K-12 Schools & Districts Privacy Policy are designed to reflect our compliance with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other applicable laws Zooms use of Cookies: When you log in to your Zoom account, Zoom will ask you to accept its use of "cookies". For the most part, Zoom utilizes "cookies" that collect information about you, such as your log-in details, to enhance the functionality of its site.  However, in addition to the cookies that Zoom uses to help with the functionality of its services and user experience, it also uses "advertising cookies".   Advertising cookies are used by advertising companies to serve ads that are relevant to your interests.  We recommend that you "opt out" of Zoom's use of such advertising cookies, which collect information about you and your use of Zoom's site for advertising purposes.   To opt out of advertising cookies, click on the  "more info" option when you sign in to your Zoom account and are prompted to accept Zoom's cookies.   When you click on "more info", you can then click on "cookie settings", which will  take you to a menu that allows you to select which cookies you permit Zoom to use: Required Cookies/CCPA Opt Out; Functional Cookies; and Advertising Cookies.  You can opt out of Advertising cookies by unselecting that option. Despite these protections, users should use common sense and avoid sharing more information when necessary when using Zoom, especially when discussing confidential matters. Additionally, as a user of Zoom, if you give Zoom access to any files or programs you need to manage cookies through your browser settings in the way you do with other applications. Remember that UC Berkeley Security Policies and Standards do apply to any computer you use for your Zoom session.

We all need a refresh, maybe even a reset, to beat Zoom fatigue as we continue working remotely. Perhaps it’s time to shake things up. Your business may be among one of almost half a million Zoom business customers across the globe. Each year a whopping 3.3 trillion meeting minutes are hosted on this video-conference software, according to BackLinko.com. Each day, more than 300 million people take part in Zoom meetings.  Set the boundaries. It’s important to keep Zoom meetings to core hours, as The Wall Street Journal suggests. What works for your business? Maybe it’s 10am to 3pm when you expect team members to be available for online meetings. Keep the rest of the day (and night) Zoom-meeting free. It sets healthy boundaries and gives workers some structure to the days they’re working remotely. Speaking of boundaries, you can reduce your risks of Zoom bombers appearing in your meeting. Protect your connection with Zoom’s two-factor authentication. Encourage the team to join Zoom meetings not through the Zoom desktop program, but your web browser. Antivirus firm Kaspersky vouches for browsers because they get security upgrades more swiftly. Does it have to be a Zoom? Consider if the meeting has to be a Zoom or other video-conferencing call. Can you mix it up and have people dial in on their phones? If you’re calling the meeting to discuss a sensitive topic or what staff would consider ‘bad news’, err on the side of a Zoom meeting. MORE FOR YOUEmpathy Is The Most Important Leadership Skill According To Research. Why U.S. Talent Shortages Are At A 10-Year High. You Probably Need More Friends—Here’s How To Make Them. Ask your team, through an anonymous online survey to monitor, evaluate and review your meetings. How effective are they? Ask what works, what doesn’t, what could be improved. Get their input on preferred meeting times and if they have issues with the strength of their home internet connection. Will their children be remotely learning at home at the same time? Maybe their kids need more support in the mornings, but can work independently in the afternoons. In those households, afternoon Zoom meetings would be a better fit.  Increasing accessibility. Think about how you can use Zoom technology to make the content of your meetings more accessible. Send staff who can’t attend the meeting at the appointed time a recording so they can catch up when it suits. Other staff might appreciate the recording, to help them revise parts of the meeting.  Luisa, an acquaintance of mine, whose first language isn’t English, says she not only attends the Zoom meeting live, but also watches the recording at least once afterward to help improve her language skills. uncomfortably just How else could you ensure your meetings are inclusive to workers such as Luisa or those who are neurodiverse? What about new staff who might be having trouble picking up the unspoken conventions and traditions or your workplace if they’re only speaking with staff online or by phone?  You might remember your pre-pandemic meetings being popular with staff if you had their favorite type of catering organized. That’s a morale booster and helps break the ice, but in Zoom meetings, we miss that. There’s little chance of chitchat because we all hear what everyone’s saying. That’s why recruits might feel tongue-tied asking curly questions. How can you ensure there’s a spot in each meeting to allow for this? One answer may be through break-out rooms. Avoid free ranging. This tip is more a refresh because no doubt you already know how to run a great meeting. Firstly, have an agenda. But you’ll also need to set ground rules or meeting etiquette for Zoom meetings. Staff need to dress professionally, not Zoom as they lie in bed. Ideally, they’ll obscure the background or use a Zoom virtual background.  Make the plan the focus – share it on the screen, so meeting attendees are thumbnails on the screen around the plan. Identify your team’s fastest typist and have them type in real time during the meeting decisions and actions, and to whom they’ve been assigned. If everyone can see this unfurl on the screen, they can suggest corrections if needed, so there’s no wasted time emailing the minutes afterwards, getting everyone’s feedback, and incorporating them. Many find it frustrating reading the minutes from meetings they have not been able to attend and then not being able to figure out what was decided and why and who’s supposed to do what next. Accept staff might prefer audio. For some people, it’s just too intense staring at yourself or others on a computer screen. For others, home is home, a private place they dont wish to invite work colleaguses to virtually. Does it mean you’re compelling your team to be chained to their desks staring at their screen for most of their workday? Encourage staff to switch off their videos occasionally, dabble in a short break to stretch, do some resistance bank core work, eye exercises, or yoga. Two to five minutes’ break helps to recharge.  An eye on the long-range view. You might have come across the concept of ‘the infinite game’, popularised by Simon Sinek’s 2019 book of the same name. Here’s a video where he talks about the main concept that encourages business leaders to embrace a “just cause”, a longer legacy than your term in the company, such as just being profitable. A just cause has five standards – it’s for something (affirmative and optimistic), inclusive, service-oriented, resilient, and idealistic. You’re scoping the future because the just cause describes something that’s yet to be achieved. In his book, he says it’s about taking a different lens, taking responsibility for our decisions’ second and third-order effects. “Like all infinite games, in the game of life, the goal is not to win; it is to perpetuate the game. To live a life of service,” he writes.  It’s a long-range view, and once you have figured out the ‘just cause’ of your business, you’ll need to write it down and be prepared to steer yourself back on track because you’ll waver from it.  Use the infinite game as a touchpoint in each of your staff meetings. Consider having a ready reckoner that qualifies – maybe even quantifies - how your organization is traveling towards that goal. Spark deeper thinking among staff about the decisions you collectively reach in your meetings, their potential spinoff effects, and how they lay the foundation for the just cause. Adding the layer of an infinite game to your Zoom meetings might just be the refresh they need. Follow me on Twitter or LinkedIn. Check out my website. Nicholas WymanPrintReprints & Permissions

Bodywww.makeuseof.com Follow Us Follow MUO. How to Use Zoom for Online Meetings By Ben Stegner Published Mar 26, 2020 Share Share Tweet Email What is Zoom and how do you set up a Zoom meeting? Here's how to join Zoom meetings, host your own, and much more. If you work from home, you've probably heard of Zoom, a meeting tool that has recently exploded in popularity. But you might not be familiar with what Zoom does or how to use Zoom. Let's take a look at what Zoom offers, how to join Zoom meetings, and also how to get the most out of the service. What Is Zoom? Zoom is a remote communication tool that allows teams to work together despite being in different locations. The company offers a variety of solutions, including virtual conference rooms, softphone systems, and video webinars. However, most people know Zoom for its video conferencing tools. Your company might use one or all of Zoom's services. For your purposes as a user, though, we'll focus on Zoom video chat for desktop platforms here. You can also join meetings using Zoom's mobile apps if you prefer. Download: Zoom for Android | iOS (Free) What Is a Zoom Meeting? A Zoom meeting is a virtual gathering of people. Each person joins in using their desktop, laptop, or mobile device. Thanks to (often built-in) webcams and microphones, everyone can chat and have a meeting without being physically together. Of course, Zoom provides additional tools to foster collaboration and ease some of the hurdles of meeting digitally. If you've used other video meeting tools like Google Hangouts, Webex, or GoToMeeting, Zoom will seem familiar to you. How to Join a Zoom Meeting. If someone has invited you to a meeting in Zoom, getting in is simple. They may have sent you an email with a unique meeting URL. If that's the case, you can click that link to jump right to the meeting page without worrying about a meeting ID. If not, don't worry. Just head to the Zoom Join a Meeting page, which you can access by clicking Join a Meeting at the top-right of Zoom's homepage. Here, you'll need to input a meeting number. The meeting organizer should have sent you this via email or other means. Input the number and choose Join. Assuming this is the first time you've joined a Zoom meeting, you'll see a prompt to install the Zoom app, which you should do for best performance. In case it doesn't load correctly, click Download & run Zoom here. Once it installs, choose a display name for and hit Join Meeting to jump in. If you can't join, here's how to troubleshoot specific Zoom error codes. Using Tools and Options in a Zoom Meeting. Now, you'll need to make sure your audio and video settings are working properly. In the Join Audio box, you can choose Test Speaker and Microphone to make sure everything is set, then click Join with Computer Audio to enter the room. Check the box at the bottom to skip this step in the future. Once that's done, you've fully joined a Zoom meeting. You can now tweak a few options and use some of Zoom's features if needed. Click the arrow next to Mute at the bottom-left to change your microphone or speaker. You can also choose Audio Settings from this menu to see all of Zoom's available options, including general tweaks, keyboard shortcuts, statistics, and a lot more. If you need to show video and aren't already, click Start Video in the bottom-left. Like the audio options, you can change the video device and access options here, if needed. Also along the bottom bar, you'll see options to invite others, view the participants' list and text chat, share your screen, and record the session. Some of these options may not be available, based on what the host has set. When you're done, click Leave meeting and confirm. Next time, you can join a Zoom meeting using the app on your PC. Search for Zoom using the Start menu to launch it, then choose Join a Meeting and enter the meeting ID. How to Set Up a Zoom Meeting. Joining a meeting you're invited to is easy, but what if you need to set up a Zoom meeting yourself? There's a bit more work to hosting, but it's not difficult. First, you'll need to sign up for a Zoom account. Head to Zoom's signup page, which you can find by clicking the Sign Up, It's Free button at the top-right. Enter your work email address, or sign up using your Google or Facebook account if you prefer. You'll get an email with a link to continue signing up. Create a password, then you can skip the step of inviting others to the service. From there, you'll see your new personal meeting URL. Clicking this will open the Zoom app on your computer and launch that meeting room. Once inside the room, you'll have a near-identical interface to meetings where you're a participant, as described above. The only major difference is that you now have full control over the meeting participants, recording, and other features. Click the Manage Participants button to open the side panel. There you can review who's present and make any changes necessary. Use the options under More to prevent participants from unmuting themselves, changing their names, or even to lock the entire meeting. How to Schedule a Zoom Meeting. You can start a quick meeting anytime by sending out your personal meeting URL or ID. But most times, you'll want to schedule a zoom meeting ahead of time so everyone can prepare. To do this, visit your Zoom Meetings page by clicking My Account at the top-right of Zoom's homepage and choosing Meetings from the left sidebar. There, you'll see the button to Schedule a New Meeting. Click this to fill out all the info, including the topic, time, duration, and other preferences. Once you click Save, use the Add to buttons to put it on your Google, Outlook, or Yahoo calendar, through which you can invite others. You can also click Copy the invitation for a block of text that you can paste into an email or other messaging service. Choose Start Meeting to begin a scheduled meeting. For more convenience in the future, you can install a plugin for Microsoft Outlook or a Chrome extension on the Meetings page to schedule meetings from those calendars. While you're in the settings, we recommend taking a look at Zoom's many options. These will let you set up meetings exactly as you like so you don't have to toggle the same options every time. How to Record a Zoom Meeting. Recording a meeting when you're the organizer is simple. Click the Record button at the bottom of the screen to begin recording immediately. Once your meeting is over, you'll find an MP4 file in Zoom's recording directory on your system. To adjust these settings, click the arrow next to Mute and choose Audio Settings to open Zoom's Settings page. There, switch to the Recording tab to choose a recording location and change other related options. How to Share Your Screen on Zoom. Click the Share Screen button in Zoom to start screen sharing. There, you can choose which monitor you want to share, or choose to share only a certain app's window. You'll find more options at the bottom, as well as the Advanced tab. We mentioned screen sharing earlier; as the organizer, you have full control over whether participants can share their screens or not. To change screen sharing options, click the arrow next to Share Screen, followed by Advanced Sharing Options. There you can decide if participants are allowed to share, whether more than one person can share their screen at a time, and if participants can start sharing when someone else already is. Zoom's Pricing Plans. Depending on your needs, you may need to upgrade to one of Zoom's premium plans. The free offering lets you host meetings with up to 100 participants. However, any meeting with more than two people is limited to 40 minutes. The free plan should suffice for casual use, as it includes all the features we discussed above, plus more. Companies can look at the Pro or Business plans if needed. How to Use Zoom Meetings. Now that we've looked at how Zoom works, you might wonder what people actually use Zoom for. Here are some common uses of Zoom as people are working from home more frequently: Education: Zoom's Education page describes how the service allows teachers to offer remote office hours, hold admin meetings, tutor students, and more. Healthcare: Zoom for Healthcare offers HIPAA-compliant video conferencing. It's used for important communication with clients, remote training, and virtual counseling. Business meetings: When employees are working from home, meetings are more difficult than when everyone is in one location. As we saw above, Zoom makes it easy to bring people together for one-on-one chats or group discussions. There are many more uses for Zoom, so your company might fall under another use case. Zoom Privacy and Security. With Zoom's increasing popularity, many have raised concerns about some questionable items in its terms of service and privacy policy. Zoom has changed these documents recently, making them difficult to discuss, so we recommend that you read them for yourself before signing up for Zoom. One notable feature is Attendee Attention Tracking, which allows the meeting host to see which participants don't have the Zoom window in focus while someone is sharing their screen. Be aware of this if you're in a meeting that's using screen-sharing. Like other video conferencing tools, Zoom has had some security issues in the past, which the company has patched up. There's one other security risk you should be aware of while using Zoom, however: unwanted participants joining your meeting and showing explicit material. Called "Zoom-bombing", this practice involves someone joining through your Zoom meeting link and broadcasting inappropriate content by sharing their screen. To keep this from happening, it's wise to avoid sharing your meeting URL anywhere that's public, such as social media. When hosting, you should also change the default setting that lets people share their screens without needing permission first. Zoom's blog post on how to prevent this has more good advice. How Does Zoom Work? Now You Know. We've looked at what Zoom is, how to start and join Zoom meetings, and other tips to make the best of it. This should get you started with the new favorite tool for remote meetings. Here are some fun things you can try with Zoom and how it compares to Houseparty. If Zoom doesn't work for your needs, check out some other free apps for making group video calls as well as these Zoom alternatives. And when it doesn't work at all, here's how you can fix Zoom on your iPhone. 11 Free Movie Streaming Sites With No Sign Up Requirements Want to watch a movie without the hassle?

BodyChecklist for Zoom Meeting Meetings are designed to be a collaborative event where all parties can share, whereas webinars are designed so that the host and designated panelists can share and view-only attendees can watch the presentation.

Webinars are for up to 3,000 participants with options to extend more using YouTube Live. If you are hosting a large event, or don't want participant video or profile pictures displayed, contact us at [email protected] to discuss the Zoom webinar option and get a webinar license.

If you record the meeting, make sure you take appropriate precautions to secure the meeting recording. If you record the meeting to your local computer, make sure that you do not not post the video on a public site. If you record to the cloud, make sure you are only sharing the cloud recording link with participants of the meeting. Be aware of what is dicussed during the session, and ensure that no confidential data is shared! By default, participants can't record meetings. The host can give participants permission to record the meeting to their local computer by opening the participants window, clicking the "More" button and then selecting "Allow Record" option.

BodyZoom launches Apps to make meetings more engaging—but experts say video fatigue could get worsePublished Wed, Jul 21 20215:07 PM EDTJennifer [email protected] Article via FacebookShare Article via TwitterShare Article via LinkedInShare Article via EmailVioletaStoimenova | E+ | Getty ImagesWith the launch of Zoom Apps, the video platform that's become synonymous with remote work (and pandemic life, for that matter) wants to help users chat, brainstorm, play games and even take a mid-day stretch all without having to leave the virtual meeting tool.The newest features aim to improve the worst parts of a virtual meeting by making real-time collaboration more seamless. For example, users can use Asana to manage tasks, Dropbox Spaces to share files, Dot Collector to brainstorm or SurveyMonkey to poll the meeting room in real-time.But the platform's expansion comes at a time when worker burnout is as high as ever during the pandemic, complicated by blurred work-life boundaries, meeting overload and, yes, Zoom fatigue.Impact of Zoom fatigue. Jeremy Bailenson, a professor at Stanford University who's researched Zoom fatigue, says videoconferencing platforms like Zoom are designed "to allow various forms of exhaustion and fatigue — socially, emotionally, and physically," he told CNBC in May.His research shows some of the main causes of this fatigue are excessive eye gaze, seeing yourself reflected back at you for many hours a day, being tethered to one physical location for extended periods of time and increased difficulty in interpreting non-verbal cues.Some of these basic concerns aren't addressed and could in fact get worse with tools that keep users in the video app, says Scott Dust, an organizational behavior expert and a professor of management at Miami University in Ohio.While Dust recognizes some advantages of providing a more integrated user experience, such as not having to click through several browser screens and ensuring everyone's seeing the same presentation at once, he tells CNBC Make It that 16 months into remote work during the pandemic, "employees have become accustomed to using applications outside of Zoom that allow them to collaborate in real time."VIDEO9:5609:56Why working from home is here to stayWorkHe worries that some meeting hosts may extend or add meetings for the sake of trying out these new features, whether or not they're actually helpful to employees.The outcome will ultimately depend on the organization's culture and approach to meetings, he says. As with any new workflow, leaders should integrate these tools thoughtfully and make sure they're actually improving the online collaboration experience for the majority of users.Workday connection and wellness. Some of this week's Zoom Apps integrations are less focused on productivity and more on employee connection, like the party game Heads Up. Others, like WW and Wellness Coach, want to provide workers a break from marathon Zooming with stand and stretch push notifications, private one-on-one wellness coaching, daily meditation sessions and desk-friendly workouts.Dust says these additional features can be good tools in the short-term to help employers better engage and support their employees. For example, organizations should be thinking about how to help colleagues interact when physical run-ins are no longer possible. A quick ice-breaker at the top of a meeting could be an easy way to do that. Meanwhile, micro-nudges to remind people to get up and move during the day could help people build more sustainable habits.The bigger picture. But Dust's overarching concern is that organizations take the time to reexamine their culture and how they support their employees in the long-term. A video platform alone won't do that."What's more impactful is larger-scale changes in organizational culture," Dust says. One strategy he wants to see more organizations adopt is asynchronous video, where an individual or team can record talking points and share it for others to watch at a later time. Essentially, he says, an effective meeting doesn't have to mean everyone gathers at the same time and place to share information.Ultimately, "employees really just need more autonomy," Dust adds, citing location flexibility, a more accommodating schedule, fewer work hours and "options to ensure they have better self-care, wellness, and work-family balance."Check out: Workers could face new burnout symptoms when returning to the office—here’s how employers can helpSign up now: Get smarter about your money and career with our weekly newsletterVIDEO9:4309:43How a 26-year-old making $24K in Seoul, South Korea spends her moneyMillennial Money
