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. How to downgrade iOS and keep your data By Pocket-lint Promotion · 8 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.

How to get Zoom Getting started with Zoom meetings More tips and tricks The takeaway Even if you don't work from home, you've probably heard of Zoom.In light of the coronavirus crisis, the videoconferencing app has become the standard for connecting with others face-to-face virtually in both business and personal settings.Zoom is now the video communication platform of choice for federal governments, tech startups, religious communities, and of course regular people looking to chat — and even party — with their friends and family.Here's everything you need to know about Zoom, including how to download it and get started, along with a few tips and tricks to help you become a video-chatting pro.What is Zoom?Zoom is a cloud-based video communications app that allows you to set up virtual video and audio conferencing, webinars, live chats, screen-sharing, and other collaborative capabilities.You don't need an account to attend a Zoom meeting, and the platform is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android, meaning nearly anyone can access it.Of course video-conferencing apps aren't new. Zoom is just one in a long line of communication tools that include Skype, Cisco Webex, and Google Meet . For example, here's a quick look at how Zoom compares to Google Meet, Google's videoconferencing platform for businesses: Zoom and Google Meet share some features, but also differ in many ways. Alyssa Powell/Business Insider In short, a big part of Zoom's appeal is simplicity. It's easy to get started, the app is lightweight, and the interface is relatively intuitive to use with popular features like Gallery View — a mode that allows you to see every person on the call at once — built right into the app.How to get Zoom. Before we go any further, it's important to note that the platform offers four distinct pricing plans, from basic to enterprise. What's right for you depends on how you plan to use the app.Zoom Basic: This is the platform's most popular pricing tier, which makes sense, considering it's free. This tier offers unlimited one-on-one meetings, but videoconferencing with more than three participants is limited to 40 minutes (you can always start another one). If you plan to use it only every once in a while to chat with friends or family, check out our general overview of Zoom's basic features.Zoom Pro: The Pro plan is ideal if you work with a small team or plan to regularly conduct extended video calls. Beyond extending the group meeting length from 40 minutes to 24 hours, this tier allows hosts to create IDs for recurring meetings and the capability to store recorded meetings in the cloud, plus advanced usage reports. Zoom Business: A pricing plan to make collaboration easy for small to midsize companies, the Business tier requires at least 10 hosts. But what you get in return is company branding on all invites, dedicated customer support and more features like auto-generated transcription. Zoom Enterprise: This tier is designed for large businesses and sign-up requires a minimum of least 100 hosts. Enterprise offers plenty of perks, including unlimited cloud storage, a dedicated "customer success manager," and the capacity to host 500 people on a single call.If you decide to change up your plan, you're not locked in forever. Here's a quick guide to help you upgrade or downgrade your Zoom account at any time.In addition to these pricing tiers, the video-call platform also offers plans built for educators, telehealth firms, and web developers. Each comes with its own features and customer-support systems. Downloading Zoom. Once you've decided on a plan, it's simple to download it whether on your computer or your mobile device. The platform is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices through the App Store and Google Play Store, respectively.If you plan on using your computer, you'll want to head over to Zoom's official website and download it. Depending on the type of computer you're using, the process will be slightly different:How to download Zoom on your PC How to download Zoom on your Mac computerYou don't need an account to join Zoom meetings, but you must sign up for an account if you plan on hosting, scheduling, and managing your own calls.If you plan to use the platform often, whether for business or pleasure, we recommend downloading the app first, and then signing up for a Zoom account. Zoom can run on nearly any device. Maja Hitij/Getty Getting started with Zoom meetings. Once you've downloaded and installed Zoom, you're ready to get started. If you don't have an account and just want to join a Zoom meeting, you can do this a few different ways.Through a Zoom Meeting link provided by the host. All you need to do is click that link, and you'll be brought to the meeting. Or you can click "Join" on Zoom's homepage, and enter the Meeting ID manually. Alternatively, if you don't have access to the mobile app or desktop, Zoom supports dial-in calling.If you do have an account and want to schedule your first Zoom meeting, all you need to do is head to either the app, or your account page on the website, where you can click the "Schedule" option. From there, follow the prompts.When this is set, you'll be able to invite meeting participants to join your conference call, which you can send via email, contact, or phone number. We've outlined a few different ways to send a Zoom invite, but the easiest way is to share the meeting join link, which you'll receive when you schedule or start a meeting.Once you're up and running and depending on your plan, Zoom offers varying levels of tools to enhance your video call. Take note of these core features.In-meeting chat: With this feature, you're able to send messages privately to an individual or to the group within a meeting. Recording: Every version offers the option to record your meetings, which you can start manually or automatically.Screen-sharing: Whether it's for a marketing presentation or a classroom lecture, sharing your screen is an easy way to show others your work.Breakout rooms: This allows you to split a single call into individual groups so participants can then have their own conversations.More tips and tricks. If you're looking to get more out of Zoom, you may be interested in a few more settings and features. Beyond simple tricks like knowing how to mute yourself and others on the call, you should familiarize yourself with the platforms advanced settings:Virtual backgrounds: One of the platform's more lively features, virtual background allows you to display and image or video as your background. Raise your hand: Zoom has a feature that lets you virtually "raise your hand," which notifies the meeting organizer that you have a point to make or question to ask, without disrupting the flow of the class or conference. Remote support: A helpful feature that allows you to take control of another participant's screen. Personal meeting ID: Only available for Pro accounts or higher, a personal meeting ID will make your meetings more secure, while also making it easier for your friends and colleagues to connect.Waiting room: A feature that lets you control when participants join a meeting.In addition to these additional features, the platform offers a host of add-ons and integrations aimed at professionals, from adding Zoom to your Google Calendar or Outlook account. Zoom Rooms. If you're subscribed to the Pro pricing plan or higher, you gain access to Zoom Rooms, the company's conference room software and hardware that can turn any room into an official conference room. For $50 a month, you gain access to the Zoom Room software. This software connects a television or monitor with your computer, an external camera, and a microphone. Put together, you can turn nearly any room into a professional-grade conference room. If you're looking to make your business as Zoom-friendly as possible, Zoom Rooms are a worthwhile investment.What is Zoombombing?You might have heard of "Zoombombing" before. This refers to people who gain access to Zoom calls without being invited, and try to wreak havoc. Earlier in the year, there were a number of widely reported Zoombombing cases, which led the company to crack down on them. Just a little security will stop any Zoombomber. Ruobing Su/Business Insider Now, whenever you start a call, it'll be password-protected by default, making it exponentially harder for anyone you don't know to gain access. Most calls also have a "waiting room" function, which requires the host to approve anyone who wants access to the call.For more information, our colleagues have extensive coverage on how Zoom is handling these sort of threats.The takeaway. Zoom can be simple to use, but difficult to master. Even with these guides, take time to explore the app on your own, and discover everything it has to offer.With time, using Zoom to meet up with your colleagues will be as natural as meeting someone in real life. And if you ever decide otherwise, you can delete your Zoom account in five simple steps.  William Antonelli Editor & Staff Writer for Tech Reference William Antonelli is a writer, editor, and organizer based in New York City.

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?

Adding Participants Step 1: Start a new meeting on the Zoom desktop app. Step 2: In the new meeting screen, click on the “Invite” button in the toolbar at the bottom.

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. To share your screen, just click on the “Share Screen” icon in the toolbar at the bottom. This lets you share: A specific app or window.A whiteboard.Apple iPhone / iPad screen (if your device supports this). If you want more screen sharing options, click on the “Advanced” tab at the top of your screen. 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? Basic licenses for Zoom are free. All you need to start using Zoom is sign up for an account and download the application from Zoom’s website. Is my privacy protected on Zoom calls? As one of its primary goals, Zoom complies with global privacy frameworks in an effort to keep you, your calls, and all of your information as safe as possible. Can I host a webinar on Zoom? Absolutely! However, you’ll need a webinar license, which is different and costs more than the free basic license. You can upgrade your license through your account’s billing settings. Can I record my Zoom meetings? Zoom hosts can record locally to their computer unless the recording feature has been disabled by their account owner or admin. Hosts who are licensed also have the option of recording in both local mode and through cloud storage with just one simple click.   Get more stuff like this In your Inbox .

BodyExplained: What is Zoom? Webwise.ie / Parents  / Get informed  / Explained: What is Zoom? In Get informed, Parents Explained: What is Zoom? . Zoom is a video conferencing platform that can be used through a computer desktop or mobile app, and allows users to connect online for video conference meetings, webinars and live chat.   During the Covid19 crisis, Zoom has seen a surge in popularity, with millions of people using it to stay in touch with others.    The app is available to download for free, and Zoom users can choose to sign up to the free service, or for a number of paid plans. The free services allows users to create unlimited meetings with up to 100 participants, although the time limit for group meetings is 40 minutes. Schools using the app can apply for the limit to be lifted for free here: zoom.us/docs/ent/school-verification How does it work? Zoom allows users to create and join virtual meeting rooms where they can communicate with each other using video, and audio. Additional features can give participants the ability to share their screen, share files, and use text chat within the meeting group or privately with others in the meeting. In order to join a Zoom meeting, a participant needs to have the Zoom app, and either the meeting link, or a Meeting ID and a password.  While you do not need  Zoom account to access a meeting, users need to set up an account in order to host a meeting. Setting up a meeting – A host can choose to set up an instant meeting, or schedule one for a particular time. This generates the Meeting ID and password, and a URL for the meeting which can be shared with people you want to participate in the meeting.   Zoom recently enabled passwords by default, meaning users will have to enter the password to join a meeting if they are entering the details manually. However, the participants do not need to enter this password if they click on the meeting url to join it. Hosts can manage other settings within their account to allow permissions for features such as whether people will be allowed to share their screen, or have the ability to have a private chat with others in the meeting   Video and audio – When joining a Zoom meeting, users are given the option to turn their video on or off, and you will also be able to see other participants, if they have their camera enabled. The meeting host has additional controls to disable the video or mute the audio of individuals who are taking part in the meeting.    Share Screen – The Share Screen functions allow people to share what is on their screen with others in the meeting. Users can do this by clicking on the Share Screen icon on the control panel. The meeting host has the ability to control access to this function, and allow all users, specific users, or restrict it to ‘host only’.    Chat function – Group chat allows users to interact using text during the meeting, and participants may also use private chat with others in the group. Meeting hosts can adjust this setting to restrict who participants can chat to. Why is it popular? Zoom’s appeal is that, even using the free version of the service, it gives people the capacity to bring together a large number of participants in one meeting. Only the host is required to set up an account with Zoom, and the access information can be easily distributed to people who may want to join the meeting. What is the age requirement? Zoom’s Privacy Policy states that “Zoom does not knowingly allow children under the age of 16 to sign up for their own accounts”, and when creating an account users are asked for their date of birth, but no other age verification is used. However, users are not required to set up a Zoom account in order to participate in a Zoom meeting. Reminder: In Ireland, the Digital Age of Consent is set at 16, meaning that online service providers must have parental consent to process the data of children below the age of 16. Privacy and security concerns. As with any app or platform, it is important to understand how it works, and the potential risks of using it. Privacy and security concerns have been raised about the service, including ‘Zoom Bombing’, which are incidents where meetings are accessed by strangers to cause disruption. Zoom Bombing is often as a result of the meeting link being shared on a public forum, where it can be accessed easily by anyone.  To mitigate against these risks, spend time becoming familiar with the privacy and moderation controls that a host can use for their meeting.  Note: Zoom has been making regular updates to address issues with the platform and, if you are using the service, bear in mind that settings security, and privacy changes may be introduced over time.    Meeting privacy It is important to ensure that private information is not shared to a public place, and to consider who will receive details about a meeting, and how that information is shared. Zoom meetings now have password access enabled by default. This means that people who want to join the meeting need to enter the Meeting ID and password in order to gain access. However, the meeting url can be used by participants to join the meeting without a password.    Waiting rooms    The Waiting Room function is a virtual holding area that prevents participants from joining a meeting until you accept them, and give them access. This setting is enabled by default for Zoom meetings.      Lock meeting     Locking a meeting that has started restricts new users from joining even if they have the Meeting ID and password.   Screen Share controls    To prevent participants taking random control of the screen, hosts can restrict permissions using the control panel. This can be adjusted both before the meeting, and during it.     Moderation and managing participants    Zoom offers some moderation tools, including giving hosts the ability to disable participant’s video, mute participants, turn off file-transfer, and disable group or private chat Advice for Parents. Familiarise yourself with app settings and go through the security features with your child: support.zoom.us/Settings-Controls Use secure privacy settings, remind your child only to share meeting links with friends and avoid sharing links on social media. Top tip – use a new password for each Zoom meeting. Remind your child that meetings can be recorded, this is a good time to have a chat about what kinds of things are okay to share online and what types of information they shouldn’t share. It is important that your child understands they can come talk to you if they encounter anything inappropriate or upsetting online For more information and advice on using video and live streaming: https://www.webwise.ie/parents/explained-live-streaming/ Tags: apps explainedExplainerparents guidezoom Talk to someone.

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].

BodyWhat Is Zoom and How Does It Work? 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). How to Use Zoom: The 13 Best Tips for Successful Video Conferencing Zoom in a Nutshell . Zoom is one of many web conferencing tools, but it has grown quickly in popularity in part because it offers a lot of capabilities for free, and also is well regarded as a reliable, high quality conferencing tool that works easily and effectively. Most people will encounter Zoom simply through a meeting that has been set up by someone else, but it's available for you to use as needed, at no cost.  Was this page helpful?

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.

BodyZoom: What is it, how much does it cost, and is it worth it?Zoom Meetings could be the only solution for all your remote work needs.By Mitja Rutnik•December 11, 2021Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityZoom Meetings has exploded to become one of the top video conferencing platforms since the pandemic started. It’s the backbone of online education, the way we conduct our meetings, and even a handy method to stay in touch with family members. Despite its popularity, some may not have a good grasp of what Zoom Meetings is and what it can do. Here’s everything you’ve ever wanted to know.One of the biggest challenges that Zoom Meetings aims to tackle is communication between remote workers. We’ve all experienced our fair share thanks to COVID-19, and video software continues to make life a little easier. What is Zoom Meetings?Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityNo, we didn’t have a lapse in grammar for this section. The product name is actually Zoom Meetings, not just Zoom. So what is Zoom Meetings? It’s a video conferencing platform from a company called Zoom. It allows employees of a company to have online meetings while working remotely. The software allows for HD video and audio and supports up to 1,000 participants per session, although the exact number depends on the plan you have — more on this later.Zoom Meetings has all the features a company needs to hold online meetings, no matter how big or small. Participants can join in from a computer or a mobile device anywhere in the world as long as they have an internet connection. They can turn their cameras on so others can see them or keep them off to preserve some privacy. Each individual can also control their microphone to give whoever is speaking their undivided attention. Zoom Meeting offers loads of other valuable features, some of which you can check out below.The main features of Zoom Meetings: Record meeting: Make a recording of any session with the push of a button. You can save a recording locally on a device or upload it to the cloud. This allows employees who couldn’t attend the live meeting/webinar to check it out later. Screen sharing: Participants can share their screens with others, which comes in handy for various presentations and educational workshops. Chat: Every Zoom Meeting has an integrated chat feature, allowing participants to communicate during a meeting and ask questions. Virtual hand-raising: When you want to speak or ask a question, you can signal it to the host by raising your hand virtually. This improves communication during a meeting, preventing multiple people from talking simultaneously. Polls: A host can create a poll and share it with participants in the meeting to gather their responses and opinions on a given topic. This comes in handy for voting on various business-related decisions, for example. Mute participants: The host of a meeting can mute the mic of any participant. This is a vital feature used when someone forgets they have the mic and their children are screaming in the background, for example. Whiteboarding: Hosts can use the Whiteboard feature to visualize any concept, just as they would with a real whiteboard. Local and cloud recording: Users can record meetings, and either store them locally or in the cloud. This makes it easy to go back to the recorded videos to go over the content. Remote PC control: Take over another user’s computer or device to show them how something is done, or simply to control an office computer. See also: How to set up and use Zoom: Everything you need to knowOther features include Virtual Backgrounds that allow you to set an image or video as your background during a meeting. It’s an excellent option for those who don’t want people to see the inside of their apartment. Then there’s Touch Up My Appearance, which is basically a filter that smooths out your skin, making you look more handsome for that critical meeting.As far as privacy is concerned, Zoom Meetings has you covered. It supports end-to-end encryption that ensures no one can snoop on your meetings — not even the company itself.You can also add a few extensions to Zoom Meetings if you need even more flexibility within the software. Right now, you can add Firefox, Chrome, or Safari for browser support. Zoom offers Gmail, Outlook, and Office 365 plug-ins if you also want email. How much does Zoom Meetings cost?Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityThe good news for most people is that Zoom Meetings has a free plan available. However, the costless version has a lot of limitations in place, making it unsuitable for most businesses. The free plan lets you host up to 100 participants and participate in unlimited one-on-one meetings, both essential benefits. Unfortunately, the problem comes in the form of a strict 40-minute time limit on all meetings.If that’s no good for you, you’ll have to open your wallet and get ready to pay up. However, pricing is affordable, starting at just $14.99 per month per host. You can check out all the pricing plans and the features each includes in the image below.Keep in mind that the pricing is per host, not per participant. This means you don’t need to pay a monthly fee for every participant that joins a meeting or webinar. People can join for free, but the meeting host — the one who sets up a meeting — has to pay a monthly subscription. The more hosts a company has, the higher the monthly bill is. Keep in mind any user can host even without paying; they’ll just be restricted to all the free plan features (like a call being limited to 40 minutes.)It’s worth noting each plan also offers various add-ons. These include increasing the number of participants that can join a meeting, the option to add extra cloud recording storage, and more. Is Zoom Meetings worth it?Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityYou’re probably wondering why you’d want to pay for Zoom Meetings if you can opt for a free service like Skype instead. Well, there are several reasons why that’s not the best idea. See also: Not sold on Zoom? Here are the eight best alternatives to tryWhile Skype is free and doesn’t have a time limit in place for meetings like the free version of Zoom, it has many other limitations. The first is that only 100 people can join a group chat, making the software unsuitable for many mid-sized companies. You also can’t mute the microphones of any of the participants in a call, which is a feature you need during large online business meetings — trust us on this one. Skype isn't great for online business meetings and webinars. There are other business-oriented features Skype and other similar services lack, including the ability to raise a hand when someone wants to speak, among many others. Skype is designed for personal and not business use. If you frequently have online meetings, especially with multiple people, we suggest paying a monthly fee for software like Zoom Meetings. We use it regularly here at Android Authority and love it. It’s definitely worth the starting price of $14.99 per month. However, Zoom isn’t the only video conferencing software available. Skype’s owner Microsoft offers Microsoft Teams, which combines video conferencing and messaging into one service that also includes many other features. Google’s Hangouts Meet is a great option, but it’s a part of the company’s G Suite subscription that includes additional cloud storage space and other features. Other options include GoToMeeting and Zoho Meeting, as well as many others. See also: The five best video conferencing apps for Android What is a Zoom Room?Zoom Meetings isn’t the only service the company offers. It also has Zoom Rooms, which refers to the hardware setup (monitors, cameras, etc.) required to launch Zoom Meetings in a company’s conference room. Zoom Rooms are aimed at large companies. The Zoom Rooms service requires an additional monthly fee ($49 a month per room) on top of what you’re already paying for the Zoom Meetings software. It includes what the company calls a Zoom Rooms Scheduling Display used to view upcoming meetings and schedule new ones. Additionally, it comes with Digital signage that allows you to share images, videos, and URLs to the screens in a Zoom Room when you’re not using them for a Zoom meeting. See also: Zoom Meetings: 10 tips and tricks you should know aboutZoom Rooms are designed for larger companies with hundreds or even thousands of employees. They can rapidly become an expensive setup since you need to purchase the monitors, microphones, and all the other required hardware separately — they’re not part of the $49 monthly subscription. Those interested in the equipment needed and recommended by Zoom can head here to learn more. What is Zoom Chat?David Imel / Android AuthorityAs if video calling and conferencing weren’t enough, you can also tap Zoom to replace your workplace IM system. Zoom Chat is the company’s alternative to services like Slack, and it’s one of the newer Zoom tools.It can take some of the scheduling headaches out of video meetings, as Zoom Chat allows you to create your meeting anywhere at any time. You can also restrict the meeting to specific groups within your organization. Zoom Chats is designed to work on both desktop and mobile, and it allows you to share essential files like code snippets while working with your team.There you go — pretty much everything you could ever want to know about Zoom Meetings and a few of its most popular services. Hopefully, we’ve prepared you for your next meeting, and maybe we’ll be able to work in person again someday. What is Zoom Phone?ZoomZoom Meetings has also launched a solution for those who need a cloud phone solution for businesses. This service makes it possible to call locally and internationally from any connected device. It meets major carrier standards and offers secure communications and encryption.Prices start at $10 a month per user for the pay-as-you-go model. You can upgrade to the $15 plan, which offers unlimited calls, or pick the $20 plan if you need support for more countries. See also: The six most common Zoom issues and how to fix them Zoom events and webinars. Zoom events and webinars make it possible to organize larger virtual events. You can use it to host single-session, multi-session, and concurrent session events. It can handle hubs, registration, and ticketing. What’s best is that participant limits get wild with these plans. You can have well over 10,000 attendees. It also includes a lobby chat for all users, live streaming of sessions, event reporting, attendance reports, and more. FeaturesZoomComments

Zoom Chat is the messenger app from the global video conferencing giant, Zoom. Adding to their all-conquering collaboration solution, this post runs through the headline features of Zoom Chat, and we take a look at the future of both Zoom and team collaboration. Up until January 2019, Zoom was a state-of-the-art video conferencing service, which you could access online or via the app. You could send messages to team members outside of meetings, but there was no formal business chat to speak of.  That’s why Zoom made some important changes to its solution, including phone features, premium virtual backgrounds, and a dedicated chat tool.   What is Zoom Chat? Zoom started life as a cloud-based video conferencing platform designed for quick and immersive collaboration. Zoom Chat takes the values and technology skills of Zoom and brings them into the enterprise messaging space.  As email becomes less relied upon, in favor of real-time messaging solutions, Zoom Chat offers users a way to collaborate when voice or video is not needed or not appropriate. The Zoom messenger app for mobile and desktop is in fact the same app you use to start and join video meetings. Zoom Chat adds to a complete portfolio that already stands out as the most popular solution for companies with 500 employees or less.  Zoom Chat Features . The chat functionality is precisely what you’d expect from an all-singing, all-dancing collaboration tool. It integrates with your video and audio conferencing solutions, with channels similar to Slack where you can create public or private groups.  You may also like: Zoom vs Slack – Which is Best For Your Business? How does Zoom Chat work? In the Zoom messenger app, users can send files, screen captures, images, messages, and more, with the option to support up to 10,000 members at once. Private channels on premium accounts can access 5,000 members, while free accounts get up to 500.  Zoom Chat offers: 1:1 chat or group conversations via public or private channelsStarring messages to save for laterPinned messagesA personal space to send yourself reminders and files Light or dark themes in your chat panelCustomizable channels Privacy features and access permissionsGIFs from GIPHYMessage archiving and third party storageChat message history with manageable time limitsScreen capture, file transfer, and image uploadsStatus and presenceEdit and delete messages sent in the Zoom messenger app What About Security? Just like any collaboration platform for today’s enterprise users, Zoom takes security seriously.  For instance, Zoom Chat supports encryption. This means that all messages are sent with TLS 1.2 with AES 256-bit algorithms.  You can enable encryption for your team members, and rest assured that they’ll still be able to send all the pictures, files, and emojis they like to colleagues.  To enable end-to-end encrypted chat, visit the Zoom web portal, click Account Management then IM Management and go to Settings. From there, click Enable end-to-end chat encryption.  Latest Zoom Chat admin updates. Starting August 22nd 2021, Zoom has communicated the following updates will be made to its admin portal: The ability to edit the searchability and visibility of users and certain groups to users in your organization under ‘Contacts’. The new admin experience will not use previous group privacy names (shared group, private group, restricted).‘IM Settings’ will be renamed ‘Zoom Chat’‘Channels’ will now be listed under ‘Chat Management’‘Chat History’ will be found under ‘Reports’>‘User Activity Reports’ It’s important to note that when Zoom Chat admins change to the new admin experience, this will be an irreversible change. Any Zoom Chat admins opting not to explore the new settings will be migrated to the new experience on October 24th, 2021. For the Zoom Chat admins who are curious about the new interface and extra settings, Zoom encourages you to sign up for the beta program. What’s Next for Zoom Chat? Back in 2016, Zoom made its video product interoperable with Skype for Business, which highlight’s the company’s efforts to play nice with others. There’s a good chance that we’ll see more examples of Zoom working well with competitors in the years to come.  Knowing that 3.3 is the average number of workplace chat apps used by a single business, Zoom is sure to have an interoperability plan around the corner. From a chat perspective, Zoom is working on APIs that allow businesses to embed the functionality of Zoom Chat into their own offerings. Zoom already has native integrations for both Slack and Microsoft Teams. Zoom Integrations: Try These 10 for Better Collaboration Zoom IPOed in April 2019. But, before that, in January, it announced upgrades to its service, ranging from a revamped user interface and Zoom Phone – a solution that allows users to make and receive calls within a Zoom softphone.  In the meantime, we can expect that the brand will continue to focus on unparalleled usability for its customers, a simplicity that syncs with your preferred device, and easy ways for companies to meet securely.  For existing Zoom Chat users. Already have Zoom Chat? Awesome! But, what if you also have Microsoft Teams, Slack, or Cisco Webex Teams? Chances are you’re one of the 91% of businesses who used two or more messaging apps. If you are, and you’d like to connect Zoom Chat to other apps, Mio is working on interoperability between Zoom Chat and your favorite platforms. Join the waitlist here or fill out your details below.

Share this on Facebook Share this on Twitter Share All sharing options Share All sharing options for: The pandemic was great for Zoom. What happens when there’s a vaccine? . Reddit Pocket Flipboard Email If 2020 was the year Zoom rode the pandemic to skyrocketing success, 2021 could be the year the videoconferencing company comes back down to Earth. Zoom started trading on the stock market in April 2019. At the time, it was known for being a rarity: a newly public tech company that actually turned a profit. One year later, the world was in lockdown for the coronavirus pandemic, and Zoom went from being a niche business software popular among tech companies to the way people did just about everything. Not only did that mean a sharp rise in Zoom meetings for the millions newly working from home, but also Zoom birthdays and baby showers for everyone else. For many, it became an indispensable lifeline to the outside world, with a free option that limited calls to 40 minutes and an unlimited paid option that enabled people to do many of the things they used to do in person. As people joked at the time: Having a corporate Zoom account was the new having a car. It was one of several videoconferencing options already out there, but it captured the public imagination and market share more than most. Zoom became a verb. The reason? It just worked. Zoom has grown years in just months. At this time last year, Zoom had on average 10 million daily meeting participants. It now has 350 million. Zoom was the most-downloaded iPhone and iPad app of the year, beating perennial favorites like Instagram and YouTube. The company’s revenue is four times what it was in 2019. Now, as we close in on two years since Zoom’s public debut, numerous headwinds make the company’s future less certain. Giant software companies like Microsoft, Cisco, and Google have mostly caught up on video chat technology, offering vastly better products than they did before Zoom entered the scene. What’s more, businesses that are cutting costs during a recession are less amenable to additional spending on software when they can lean on the contracts they already have. Microsoft Teams, which has a Zoom-like videoconferencing feature, is essentially free for companies paying for Microsoft’s Office suite. Slack, another best-of-breed workplace app that was acquired by Salesforce this week, also comes with a video component. Perhaps most pressing, with multiple viable coronavirus vaccines likely to start distribution, we might not need to video chat so much next year. Zoom’s stock dropped nearly 20 percent in November after the news that Pfizer’s vaccine was highly effective in late-stage trials. It’s still up nearly 500 percent from this time last year, and Zoom has more than quadrupled sales year over year. Zoom, for its part, says it welcomes a vaccine, despite the stock dips. “Hopefully we provide a good enough service — and it’s my true intention that we provide a good enough service — that people want to use us, calamity or not,” Aparna Bawa, Zoom’s chief operating officer, told Recode. Zoom’s customer base is in transition. Just nine years ago, disaffected Webex engineer Eric Yuan left Cisco to found Zoom. Now, Zoom is not only more popular than Webex, a videoconferencing service that’s been around since the 1990s, Zoom appears more popular than all of its competitors. But that enthusiasm among users hasn’t translated to sales at the same scale. US traffic to Zoom’s website is nearly 30 times what it was in the beginning of the year, according to data from online analytics firm SimilarWeb. In October, monthly visits to Zoom were three times higher than visits to Google’s Meet and Hangouts combined, according to the firm, which can’t track web visits to Microsoft Teams because it doesn’t have its own domain distinct from microsoft.com. Zoom had double the number of app downloads in October as Google Hangouts, and four times as many as Microsoft Teams or Google Meet. But Zoom downloads have slowed from highs earlier in the pandemic. “Customers are still using the platform, you’re just not seeing the volume of new customers coming on as it was in the past six months,” Charlie Rogers, a software research analyst at 7Park Data, told Recode. “A lot of customers who would buy Zoom have already got it.” In other words, Zoom might be nearing market saturation because so many people already have an account. And being popular with the masses doesn’t necessarily lead to more income, especially since Zoom has a popular free tier with a 40-minute call limit as well as free unlimited usage for K-12 students. Corporate users are more likely to have the paid version — and they’re less likely to turn off their service, when, say, a vaccine makes it possible to meet people in person. Even Santa is on Zoom. Above, Santa Claus and his elf Pipkin talk to children on Zoom on November 27 in Newquay, England, for a hospital event. Finnbarr Webster/Getty Images Zoom’s largest revenue segment — 62 percent — comes from companies with more than 10 employees, but customers with 10 or fewer employees are growing much faster, making up 38 percent of the company’s revenue, up from 20 percent at the end of last year. That segment of customers has grown as more individuals have adopted the paid service, but it’s also a more volatile segment because smaller customers can switch to a service offered by one of Zoom’s competitors more easily. Last quarter, 18 percent of total revenue came from customers spending $100,000 or more, down from 33 percent at the end of last year. “The real jewel isn’t about consumer or SMBs [small and medium-sized businesses], the real gold is to win enterprise,” Ryan Koontz, senior research analyst at Rosenblatt Securities, told Recode. That’s because each contract means numerous paid licenses within an organization as well as longer-term subscriptions. As Koontz put it, for enterprises, “The cost of change is very high.” Put differently, Zoom competitors with an existing enterprise customer base have an advantage because those customers are more likely to stick with the same provider. About half of companies surveyed by Enterprise Technology Research (ETR) have Zoom while 75 percent currently have Teams (many companies pay for multiple software subscriptions). Thirty percent have Cisco’s Webex, after a recent decline. These numbers are still up for both products since the pandemic began. And when narrowing the data to bigger Fortune 500 companies, the market share for Teams and Webex rose this quarter, while Zoom’s declined. Additionally, many companies that have Zoom are spending less on it. Microsoft Teams is the main reason company chief information officers cited for leaving or spending less with Zoom, according to ETR. (A number of CIOs cited security as another reason for leaving the service.) Many of those companies already pay for Microsoft’s Office 365, which has business staples like Excel and Word. Included in the cost of the software suite is access to Microsoft Teams and its videoconferencing features, making Teams a no-brainer for companies trying to cut costs. This is an argument Zoom is used to. “When Eric [Yuan] founded this company, videoconferencing was then thought of as a saturated market. There were lots of very large legacy providers including Microsoft that continued to bundle different services,” Bawa said. “And Zoom still has done pretty darn well.” Zoom still has plenty of enterprise users, and it’s also popular among small businesses. While this smaller, fast-growing segment isn’t as profitable as big companies, these customers are still important for Zoom’s future. “Don’t underestimate the number of small and medium-sized businesses,” Wayne Kurtzman, research director of social and collaboration at market research firm IDC, said. “The market has room for multiple leaders.” The videoconference feature war. While Zoom earned popularity because of its dependability and ease of use, its competitors have gotten a lot better in these respects by simplifying their services and bulking up the quality of their video calls. Now, the baseline service that Zoom and its competitors offer is pretty similar. They all have videoconferences that are pretty easy to join, work pretty well, and are pretty secure. So all these companies are currently fighting to differentiate themselves with new and better products. This year, Zoom had to fix security concerns to bring its service more in line with its competitors. A series of high-profile security mishaps — including Zoombombing, a vulnerability that let websites hijack Mac cameras, and Zoom routing calls through China — eventually led Zoom to bulk up its security. In addition to fixing the issues that led to the mishaps, Zoom hired former Facebook security executive Alex Stamos as an outside consultant and began offering end-to-end encryption in October. “Zoom is catching up at a really quick rate to those like Teams and Webex,” Frank Dickson, program vice president within IDC’s cybersecurity products research practice, told Recode. Bawa said Zoom’s enterprise customers are a testament to the bolstered security. “The validation is that we have a significant number of our large enterprise customers that go through multiple rounds of security review in financial services, in the government sector, defense — you name it — retail, etc.,” Bawa said. “And we have passed them and continue flourishing in those accounts, expanding our footprint.” So now, the competitive battleground for videoconferencing software is all about new features. Both Microsoft Teams and Cisco’s Webex have added at least 100 new features since the pandemic. They’ve added noise cancellation software to deal with the sounds of working from home: babies crying, dogs barking, neighbors mowing their lawns. They also started offering live transcription. Microsoft introduced Together Mode, which places conference attendees against a shared digital background to give them the feeling of being in the same room. To accommodate its governmental customers, Webex even added a new feature that allows legislators to emulate voting on laws. “A direct outcome of the pandemic was, hey, our innovation velocity has to increase because this has become a far more strategic technology today than it was five years ago,” Jeetu Patel, senior vice president of security and apps at Webex, told Recode. Meanwhile, Facebook realized early in the pandemic that people were using its Portal video chat service more for group events than one-on-one conversations, so it made that easier with link sharing and call scheduling. All of the platforms have enabled fun backgrounds and Snapchat-like augmented reality filters. In addition to many of the same features as its competitors, Zoom has been rolling out new potential revenue streams. After launching Zoom Rooms and Zoom Phone last year, Zoom announced more new products in October: OnZoom, a video events platform that will allow people to sell tickets, and Zoom Apps, which lets people navigate to other workplace apps like Dropbox and Slack within Zoom. Zoom sees these new products as commonsense additions to its core tool, which it says could still get better. But taken together, all of these moves could be a sign of weakness. “Anytime an enterprise tech company that’s a one-trick pony announces new products, it’s because the current product is maxed out,” said market researcher Thomas DelVecchio. What comes after a vaccine . The end of the pandemic does not signify the end of video calls. It will certainly mean less video usage, but video will likely forevermore be a component of meetings, if not a dire necessity. After the pandemic, the vast majority of office employers plan to use a hybrid work model, wherein some of their workforce works remotely at least some of the time. As large as it was this year — $7.9 billion — the videoconferencing market is expected to grow next year to an estimated $9.7 billion with 90 percent of North American businesses likely to spend more on it, according to IDC. The videoconferencing companies, in turn, are all looking forward to a time when meetings will happen naturally in person and remotely. They’ll also have to make it natural for those physically present to communicate effectively with their remote counterparts, without one or the other feeling disadvantaged. Inevitably, video calls need to be more useful. “It needs to be more than a meeting,” said IDC’s Kurtzman. “It needs to add more value.” That will include using augmented reality to make meetings more engaging and viewing data together as a group more useful. It will also require setting up video calls to become even simpler and more seamless than they are now. “Videoconferencing in seven years will seem unrecognizable from the videoconferencing we have today,” Kurtzman said. “The features and ways of engaging many people would classify as science fiction today.” Companies are approaching the future from varying angles. Going forward, Microsoft is investing heavily in features that contribute to employees’ sense of wellbeing, as their research shows working during the pandemic has had deleterious effects on employees, including an increased number of meetings and longer hours. Cisco is soon launching a feature meant to guarantee that everyone in a meeting feels they can participate, by allotting each participant time to speak in which the others are muted. Facebook expects video to become an additive element to regular life. “I can see every wedding happening going forward having a Portal device in the front row,” Micah Collins, director of product management for Facebook’s Portal, said. And now that these legacy software companies are paying such close attention to the videoconference space, it will be difficult for Zoom to keep up and continue to differentiate itself. Its founder has suggested that Zoom could be the center of a more human communications system. “Eric at one point said, ‘I want you to be able to reach through Zoom and shake someone’s hand or give each other a hug over Zoom,’” Bawa said. “We view ourselves as the conduit to providing human-to-human connection in any context in a very intimate and personal way.” If Zoom can pull it off, that could be the difference between a company on the rise and one crashing back to Earth.

It’s awesomely amazing! . Zoom is a really great app I really really recommend it especially if you’re doing online school, Zoom is a great way to do online school and has actually been part of my life now that COVID-19 started, It helped me and made me interact with my teacher and classmates! I really really recommend it even has a choice that you can even private chat to the host and other classmates! You can make a Zoom and you’ll automatically be the host! Once people join you can make those people the Co-Host the Co-Host has the same thing as the host, Just that the host has more advantage in the Zoom can end the meeting, change peoples names, chat with people and more things. Zoom may have some technical difficulties from time to time but it’s all right we all have technical difficulties! Zoom works with Internet as well so you need Wi-Fi and Internet to do Zoom.

Zoom is the #1 choice best for teacher, Schools and students! Thanks for reading! "........."....." , 04/30/2021 AMAZING APP! But a few recommendations . Zoom is an AMAZING app and right now during the pandemic it helps kids to do school but online! Zoom can also help me see my family when I can’t be there with them. Even if the pandemic that’s going on in the world. I would still use this amazing app. I have some recommendations for this app. I think when the teacher parent tutor etc, is sharing they should have something that can disable kids from writing on the screen. I think it’s kind of annoying that they can do that. The next recommendation I have is there should be a button that can say whether or not there can can be a co-host. I was doing a class and my teacher couldn’t sign a cohost he tapped on the person he wanted to sign cohost but it didn’t have that option. I soon did a zoom with my friends because Snapchat wasn’t working etc. I wanted to make one of my friends cohosts but I also didn’t have that option. Those are some things that I think zoom should fix, but other than that I love this app and recommend it to you! Have good day, thanks for reading! ArtsyAnimalCrafter , 05/15/2021 Great app but one thing... . I like this app a lot! It is awesome for school or just simply talking to your friends. I love how you can present your screen on it. I have an iPod touch on it and it works well too. You can do this on a chrome book or iPad as well. Once I downloaded this I asked my friends if we could zoom. After a few meets I noticed I couldn’t create a meeting I can only join. This is a not a big problem but you get cool features on your side of the meet if you create the meet and they are really cool. Yeah, I know you can switch the host which I REALLY like but you still don’t get all of the features that you would if you actually created the meet. You can present like I said above but the presenting is a little glitchy. Other than those two things I love this game. I like how you can change your name. Also you can go into drivers mode which means that you hit a button to talk and if you don’t hit the button and talk than people won’t here you. Also it means nobody can see your camera so its great to prank your friends with or just use it like its supposed to be used. If you are a the host you can enable it or disable it. You can also slide the screen to show you certain people. One of the slides is drivers mode! I really like this and I HIGHLY recommend it if you are a student or a teacher or just someone who wants to talk to their friends. App Privacy .

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.

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

BodyWhat is Zoom? By Tyler Lacoma December 10, 2020 Share For many, 2020 was the first time they heard about a video chat app called Zoom — a not-so-little online platform that swiftly became one of the most popular options for videoconferencing in the world. If you are still looking for a video app to fit your situation, Zoom is a streamlined contender. Let’s take a look at how it works, and if it’s a good choice to use for personal or professional video chatting. Zoom basics. Alistair Berg/Getty Images Zoom is a videoconferencing service operating on a cloud platform that allows you to connect with others who are also using the service. It supports both video and audio-only conferencing, enabled by the mics and webcams that are on your devices (or can be purchased for more specific tasks). Zoom became a popular choice for quick videoconferencing due to its simplicity and light digital footprint, which made it easy to pick up and learn for those unfamiliar with video chatting. It’s also compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, and Linux. Zoom functions much like other professional video chat apps. You have an option to immediately start a conference and send invites to other Zoom users, usually through an email that includes a link to the meeting and other ID information. You can also choose to schedule a future meeting and send out invites early so that everyone can put it on their schedules and be prepared. When in a meeting, users have access to basic tools that allow them to mute or unmute themselves and turn video on or off as needed, although the host retains the greatest amount of control when it comes to organizing and muting. These meetings can function either as a one-on-one chat or to support dozens of people at once for a group discussion. While Zoom is designed to enable a smooth video feed, the actual quality of a video call still depends primarily on the internet connection itself. Zoom only works with what you have, and considerations like Wi-Fi signals or bandwidth are still important. Additional features. OLIVIER DOULIERY/AFP via Getty Images Zoom has a variety of more in-depth tools to help out with specific tasks. Some of the most important include: A chat window for both group and individual chats while the video conference is live (with some emoji support included). The ability to share a desktop or an individual window when showing an example or helping someone complete a task. A whiteboard for drawing, annotation, brainstorming, etc. An indicator that someone has “raised their hand” as a way of signaling a question without needing an audio cue. Closed captioning with subtitles for clarification and translation solutions. Options for using a virtual background. A quick poll tool to gauge opinions or issue quick quizzes. A “Touch Up My Appearance” mode that can help fix unwanted looks due to webcams or other issues. The ability to support existing virtual conference room systems from companies like Cisco and Polycom. Ways to record and save a video meeting afterward as a guide or for future reference. Oh, and they’ve got a special display you can buy, too. These features are available to everyone, and not locked behind any subscriptions or paywalls — although some of them may take practice to use for those who are unfamiliar. Zoom security and privacy. Zoom When using a video chat service, especially for professional purposes, security is a top priority. You may have already heard about issues with “Zoom bombing” and other situations where people have been able to hack into Zoom meetings and show unwanted content or hijinks. Zoom put in a lot of work in 2020 to update its security measures and keep things like this from happening. The result is AES 256-bit GCM encryption, denoted by a small green shield icon in the Zoom chat window that lets you know it’s working. Invites with meeting keys are encrypted as well. There’s also a security tab where people can report users directly to Zoom and get them temporarily removed from the meeting and potentially blocked permanently. While those measures were put in place by mid-2020, Zoom was also working on a more ambitious security alternative that began rolling out in October 2020. This focuses on new end-to-end encryption (E2EE) using public key cryptography to protect meeting keys even more thoroughly and completely prevent Zoom’s servers from accessing any meeting. All users must have end-to-end encryption enabled when joining a meeting that requires it, although it does block certain functions like the ability to record meetings or do live transcriptions. Finally, Zoom now has a bot that scans for Zoom meeting keys that have been posted in public places and sends alerts to account owners that the meeting could be in danger of being compromised, and tells them how to get a private key to users to help fix the issue. These changes have largely erased any repeating security issues for the app, so it remains a viable option for professional settings. Pricing tiers. Zoom Zoom is free to download and use, but there are pricing tiers to expand what you can do with the app. The free version allows for up to 100 participants in a meeting and unlimited meeting options for one-on-one chats. However, group meetings are restricted to only 40 minutes at the max, and you can’t stream or use their cloud recording option. The Pro package, which costs $150 annually per license, removes the time limit from all meetings, allows social media streaming, and gives you a gigabyte of storage for cloud recording. The Business package, at $200 annually per license, bumps up limits to 300 participants, allows for full cloud recording with transcripts, supports managed domains, and includes options for company branding. There is also a United plan for $300 annually per license, which adds a phone plan for businesses interested in enabling VoIP connections as well. Zoom on mobile. Zoom Zoom is available as a mobile app. However, videoconferencing tools are much more limited in the mobile form, so it functions as a more simplistic video chat app (like FaceTime). It’s still useful for quick chats and personal meetings, but if you need more of the professional features for work or school, it’s best to stick with the desktop app. Zoom vs. alternatives. How does Zoom compare to other popular alternatives? This is a tough question because so much depends on experience and specific use cases. We mentioned that Zoom is easy to pick up for new users, and that’s certainly an advantage — but as a general rule, it’s best to stick with the platform that all users know best, rather than pushing an unnecessary app. Zoom is a strong contender for organizations and people that simply haven’t used a video chat service before, and need something that’s easy to adopt and has the basic features that they want — and with a very usable free option that can help save money if necessary. For more specialized purposes, other apps may be better. If your organization already uses Microsoft’s Office 365, then Microsoft Teams is probably simpler to incorporate into your schedule while retaining admin control options (although Zoom can be used as an add-in). If you are looking for a dedicated app for teaching, then nothing really compares to the education features and training that Google Meet has rolled out. Editors' Recommendations .

BodyStanford researchers identify four causes for ‘Zoom fatigue’ and their simple fixes It’s not just Zoom. Popular video chat platforms have design flaws that exhaust the human mind and body. But there are easy ways to mitigate their effects. Facebook Twitter Email By Vignesh Ramachandran Even as more people are logging onto popular video chat platforms to connect with colleagues, family and friends during the COVID-19 pandemic, Stanford researchers have a warning for you: Those video calls are likely tiring you out. Professor Jeremy Bailenson examined the psychological consequences of spending hours per day on Zoom and other popular video chat platforms. (Image credit: Getty Images) Prompted by the recent boom in videoconferencing, communication Professor Jeremy Bailenson, founding director of the Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL), examined the psychological consequences of spending hours per day on these platforms. Just as “Googling” is something akin to any web search, the term “Zooming” has become ubiquitous and a generic verb to replace videoconferencing. Virtual meetings have skyrocketed, with hundreds of millions happening daily, as social distancing protocols have kept people apart physically. In the first peer-reviewed article that systematically deconstructs Zoom fatigue from a psychological perspective, published in the journal Technology, Mind and Behavior on Feb. 23, Bailenson has taken the medium apart and assessed Zoom on its individual technical aspects. He has identified four consequences of prolonged video chats that he says contribute to the feeling commonly known as “Zoom fatigue.” Bailenson stressed that his goal is not to vilify any particular videoconferencing platform – he appreciates and uses tools like Zoom regularly – but to highlight how current implementations of videoconferencing technologies are exhausting and to suggest interface changes, many of which are simple to implement. Moreover, he provides suggestions for consumers and organizations on how to leverage the current features on videoconferences to decrease fatigue. “Videoconferencing is a good thing for remote communication, but just think about the medium – just because you can use video doesn’t mean you have to,” Bailenson said. Below are four primary reasons why video chats fatigue humans, according to the study. Readers are also invited to participate in a research study aimed at developing a Zoom Exhaustion & Fatigue Scale (ZEF) Scale. Four reasons why. 1) Excessive amounts of close-up eye contact is highly intense. Both the amount of eye contact we engage in on video chats, as well as the size of faces on screens is unnatural. In a normal meeting, people will variously be looking at the speaker, taking notes or looking elsewhere. But on Zoom calls, everyone is looking at everyone, all the time. A listener is treated nonverbally like a speaker, so even if you don’t speak once in a meeting, you are still looking at faces staring at you. The amount of eye contact is dramatically increased. “Social anxiety of public speaking is one of the biggest phobias that exists in our population,” Bailenson said. “When you’re standing up there and everybody’s staring at you, that’s a stressful experience.” Another source of stress is that, depending on your monitor size and whether you’re using an external monitor, faces on videoconferencing calls can appear too large for comfort. “In general, for most setups, if it’s a one-on-one conversation when you’re with coworkers or even strangers on video, you’re seeing their face at a size which simulates a personal space that you normally experience when you’re with somebody intimately,” Bailenson said. When someone’s face is that close to ours in real life, our brains interpret it as an intense situation that is either going to lead to mating or to conflict. “What’s happening, in effect, when you’re using Zoom for many, many hours is you’re in this hyper-aroused state,” Bailenson said. Solution: Until the platforms change their interface, Bailenson recommends taking Zoom out of the full-screen option and reducing the size of the Zoom window relative to the monitor to minimize face size, and to use an external keyboard to allow an increase in the personal space bubble between oneself and the grid.   2) Seeing yourself during video chats constantly in real-time is fatiguing. Most video platforms show a square of what you look like on camera during a chat. But that’s unnatural, Bailenson said. “In the real world, if somebody was following you around with a mirror constantly – so that while you were talking to people, making decisions, giving feedback, getting feedback – you were seeing yourself in a mirror, that would just be crazy. No one would ever consider that,” he added. Bailenson cited studies showing that when you see a reflection of yourself, you are more critical of yourself. Many of us are now seeing ourselves on video chats for many hours every day. “It’s taxing on us. It’s stressful. And there’s lots of research showing that there are negative emotional consequences to seeing yourself in a mirror.” Solution: Bailenson recommends that platforms change the default practice of beaming the video to both self and others, when it only needs to be sent to others. In the meantime, users should use the “hide self-view” button, which one can access by right-clicking their own photo, once they see their face is framed properly in the video.   3) Video chats dramatically reduce our usual mobility. In-person and audio phone conversations allow humans to walk around and move. But with videoconferencing, most cameras have a set field of view, meaning a person has to generally stay in the same spot. Movement is limited in ways that are not natural. “There’s a growing research now that says when people are moving, they’re performing better cognitively,” Bailenson said. Solution: Bailenson recommends people think more about the room they’re videoconferencing in, where the camera is positioned and whether things like an external keyboard can help create distance or flexibility. For example, an external camera farther away from the screen will allow you to pace and doodle in virtual meetings just like we do in real ones. And of course, turning one’s video off periodically during meetings is a good ground rule to set for groups, just to give oneself a brief nonverbal rest.   4) The cognitive load is much higher in video chats. Bailenson notes that in regular face-to-face interaction, nonverbal communication is quite natural and each of us naturally makes and interprets gestures and nonverbal cues subconsciously. But in video chats, we have to work harder to send and receive signals. In effect, Bailenson said, humans have taken one of the most natural things in the world – an in-person conversation – and transformed it into something that involves a lot of thought: “You’ve got to make sure that your head is framed within the center of the video. If you want to show someone that you are agreeing with them, you have to do an exaggerated nod or put your thumbs up. That adds cognitive load as you’re using mental calories in order to communicate.” Gestures could also mean different things in a video meeting context. A sidelong glance to someone during an in-person meeting means something very different than a person on a video chat grid looking off-screen to their child who just walked into their home office. Solution: During long stretches of meetings, give yourself an “audio only” break. “This is not simply you turning off your camera to take a break from having to be nonverbally active, but also turning your body away from the screen,” Bailenson said, “so that for a few minutes you are not smothered with gestures that are perceptually realistic but socially meaningless.” ZEF Scale. Many organizations – including schools, large companies and government entities – have reached out to Stanford communication researchers to better understand how to create best practices for their particular videoconferencing setup and how to come up with institutional guidelines. Bailenson – along with Jeff Hancock, founding director of the Stanford Social Media Lab; Géraldine Fauville, former postdoctoral researcher at the VHIL; Mufan Luo; graduate student at Stanford; and Anna Queiroz, postdoc at VHIL – responded by devising the Zoom Exhaustion & Fatigue Scale, or ZEF Scale, to help measure how much fatigue people are experiencing in the workplace from videoconferencing. The scale, detailed in a recent, not yet peer-reviewed paper published on the preprint website SSRN, advances research on how to measure fatigue from interpersonal technology, as well as what causes the fatigue. The scale is a 15-item questionnaire, which is freely available, and has been tested now across five separate studies over the past year with over 500 participants. It asks questions about a person’s general fatigue, physical fatigue, social fatigue, emotional fatigue and motivational fatigue. Some sample questions include: How exhausted do you feel after videoconferencing? How irritated do your eyes feel after videoconferencing? How much do you tend to avoid social situations after videoconferencing? How emotionally drained do you feel after videoconferencing? How often do you feel too tired to do other things after videoconferencing? Hancock said results from the scale can help change the technology so the stressors are reduced. He notes that humans have been here before. “When we first had elevators, we didn’t know whether we should stare at each other or not in that space. More recently, ridesharing has brought up questions about whether you talk to the driver or not, or whether to get in the back seat or the passenger seat,” Hancock explained. “We had to evolve ways to make it work for us. We’re in that era now with videoconferencing, and understanding the mechanisms will help us understand the optimal way to do things for different settings, different organizations and different kinds of meetings.” “Hopefully, our work will contribute to uncovering the roots of this problem and help people adapt their videoconference practices to alleviate ‘Zoom fatigue,’” added Fauville, who is now an assistant professor at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. “This could also inform videoconference platform designers to challenge and rethink some of the paradigm videoconferences have been built on.” If you are interested in measuring your own Zoom fatigue, you can take the survey here and participate in the research project.

BodyWhat is the Zoom meeting app, how does it work – and is it safe? The videoconferencing app has emerged as one of the few benefactors from the ongoing crisis, but what is it exactly? By Michael Cogley, Technology Correspondent 22 July 2020 • 12:32pm Zoom may not have been a household name before the coronavirus outbreak. But now, it seems, it is everywhere. In recent weeks, swathes of businesses and organisations have flocked to use the technology while the UK is in lockdown, in a bid to continue meetings with employees who have been forced to work from home. Growing numbers of people are also using it socially to catch up with friends virtually while stuck indoors. Here's everything you need to know about the videoconferencing app and how it works. What is it? In many respects Zoom does nothing new. It’s a cloud-based video conferencing tool where you can host calls with others. Users can open chat rooms and can have up to 500 attendees all sharing the feed from their webcams, thus giving the illusion of a typical meeting. The service also offers to share your screen with others on your call, as well as record the meeting for future use. Crucially though, it enables a very simple joining function that allows people that don’t have the app to join a meeting. It has proved extremely popular in recent times with even Prime Minister Boris Johnson choosing the software to host the country’s first ever videoconferenced Cabinet meeting. A free version that supports up to 100 participants in a video-call with a 40-minute time limit. How much does it cost? Many of Zoom’s basic features come for free. But like many companies these days, The Telegraph included, it offers a subscription service. Zoom’s paid-for plans range from £11.99 a month, rising to £15.99 a month. The basic free package will appease most choosing to use it for personal use or on an infrequent basis. Users can host meetings with up to 100 participants with a 40 minute limit for free. Or they can host unlimited 1 to 1 meetings. The second “Pro” tier allows up to 24 hours worth of group meetings and is more suited towards smaller teams. It also allows interoperability with Skype for Business customers as well as recordings up to 1GB in size. Its business offering, which is for companies that use a minimum of 10 licenses, allows meetings with up to 300 participants, phone support, and admin dashboard, as well as an option for on-premise set-up. Finally its enterprise offering, for companies springing for 50 licenses or more, can host calls with up to 500 participants. How popular is Zoom? Recent data from Sensor Tower have shown “big upticks across the board” for mobile-app downloads for work-from-home services.  Zoom’s app had download growth of 109pc, according to the data.  “Many businesses are making their first moves into remote work and gravitating toward the biggest players, like Zoom or Microsoft,” said Randy Nelson, head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower, told Bloomberg News. How safe is it? Cyber security experts will often bristle at the safety credentials of free software. Despite Zoom’s newly accrued massive footprint it had set off alarm bells when the Ministry of Defence staff were told that the use of the app was suspended with immediate effect while the “security implications” were investigated. However, the Government went some way to quelling such fears at the start of the month, insisting that the National Cyber Security Centre's guidance showed that there was "no security reason" for Zoom not to be used for sensitive meetings. To date experts worry that the sudden reliance on Zoom could allow opportunistic hackers to quietly observe video calls. For now however, it seems that internet pranksters conducting “Zoombombing” is the company’s biggest privacy concern. Zoombombing is where conference calls are disrupted by strangers who hijack video chats. In some cases the nefarious actors broadcast pornography to the calls' participants. Zoom has highlighted a number of ways that users can avoid being Zoombombed. The app offers services like "waiting rooms" where the host controls who comes and goes from the call. Another feature sets the call up in a way where only people that have signed in using the email they were invited through can join. Hosts can also "lock" a meeting, ensuring that no new entrants can join and also limit screen sharing to just the host. In a statement to the Telegraph, the company said it was "deeply upset" to hear about incidents of Zoombombing. The company also condemned the actions of those crashing the calls and said that it had introduced a number of default features to battle against them, including waiting rooms. Zoom has staunchly defended its record, insisting it takes user security “extremely seriously”. The company said that 2,000 institutions had done “exhaustive security reviews” of its networks. There are further concerns that some people may have had their Zoom login details compromised. A report by cyber security firm Cyble found that more than 500,000 stolen passwords and account details are being sold on the dark web for a fraction of a penny. However, it is thought the login details were compiled from separate third-party security breaches rather than from Zoom directly.  Do I need wi-fi to use it and how do I get it on my TV? Using Zoom is quite easy. If you ae joining someone else’s meeting you do not have to download the app. However this differs when it comes to setting up your own call, as you’d expect. The app is across multiple platforms, including Mac and Windows, but it has yet to develop a native programme for smart TVs. Nothing brings the corporate shark in you alive quite like seeing your glistening forehead adorned on your television. This can be achieved quite easily if you have a smart TV capable of screen sharing. Just join the meeting and share your screen with your TV. If your TV doesn’t boast that function you may need to look at buying something like Google’s Chromecast or Amazon’s Fire Stick. Both of which are relatively inexpensive and add the modern day muscle of today’s smart TVs to an older screen. How is the company coping with the surge in demand? Investors are betting that the teleconferencing company would be one of the rare winners from the coronavirus pandemic. Shares spiked as much as 22pc in late March, trading almost twice its daily average volume. The stock is up more than 40pc over the past six days, and it has more than doubled this year. Zoom’s chief financial officer has said it had bolstered its network capacity in order to manage unprecedented demand.  For the first quarter, Zoom is expected to report adjusted earnings of about 10 cents a share, a forecast that has risen by 68pc over the past month, according to Bloomberg data.  Related Topics Apps, UK coronavirus lockdown, Social distancing, Coronavirus Twitter Icon Facebook Icon WhatsApp Icon Email Icon Comment speech bubble We've noticed you're adblocking.

BodyZoom: A cheat sheet about the video conferencing solution by Brandon Vigliarolo in Software on January 8, 2021, 7:15 AM PST Zoom is now a household name for work-from-home employees. Here is your guide to Zoom basics, including its security vulnerabilities and video conferencing alternatives such as Microsoft Teams. 5 ways to prevent Zoom bombing Watch Now Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are working from home. With workforces scattered to the wind, many businesses have had to adapt to virtual meetings as the new normal, which has been a massive boon for the video chat and conferencing software Zoom. In February 2020, Zoom added more users than it did in the entirety of 2019. Major media platforms started using Zoom to stream broadcasts from at-home anchors, and "Zooming" quickly became eponymous with video chats and virtual meetings.  SEE: Zoom video conferencing: Cheat sheet (free PDF) (TechRepublic)Zoom's explosive growth came with increased focus on security and privacy issues that went largely unnoticed before. Major companies and governments around the world have been banning Zoom from work use, and half a million sets of user credentials have even been found for sale on the Dark Web. Zoom has pledged to fix a long list of security issues, but that hasn't stopped a third of users from getting cold feet. So, is Zoom still a video conferencing app worth using? If so, who should use it when so much personal and business security could be at risk? Learn more by reading this Zoom basics guide. SEE: How to use Zoom: 15 tips and tricks (free PDF) (TechRepublic)Zoom lets people who join a meeting with an Android or iOS device share the screen of their mobile device. Zoom supports screen sharing from laptop and desktop devices, as well. Image: Zoom What is Zoom? . Zoom is video conferencing software for Windows, macOS, Linux, and mobile devices that run iOS or Android. It supports one-on-one calls, as well as group meetings that can hold up to 100 users for free or 500 users with an additional purchase. Zoom, the company, was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, and the Zoom application was released in 2013. Zoom has been lauded for its simple interface, ease of use, and accessibility to non-tech savvy people, which has aided in its steady climb as a video conferencing app of choice for small businesses, enterprises, and individuals. By 2017, Zoom had grown into a unicorn company by reaching $1 billion in valuation.  Along with its desktop and mobile apps, Zoom offers solutions for enterprise conference rooms, browser extensions, online seminars, and a web client that allows meeting participants to attend meetings without having to install the Zoom app. Zoom has attracted many users by having a robust free tier, which allows meetings of up to 100 people without restricting any app features, instead limiting meetings for free accounts to 40 minutes.

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom saw a massive spike in users because of stay-at-home orders. By the end of March 2020, security issues started being reported.  TechRepublic sister site CNET has a total rundown of all the security flaws discovered in Zoom since March; here are some of the highlights. March 26: An investigation finds that Zoom is sending user data to Facebook without permission. Zoom removed its Facebook data collection the following day. March 30: Another investigation finds that Zoom is not using end-to-end encryption,  Zoom bombs are first reported, and multiple flaws in both the windows and macOS versions of Zoom are reported. April 1: Zoom is treating email addresses with the same domain (e.g., ISPs, but not email-only services like Gmail) as if they belong to the same company, allowing countless users access to names, photos, and email addresses of other users. Zoom CEO Eric Yuan issues a public apology, and Zoom freezes all feature rollouts to focus on security fixes. April 2: A data mining feature is discovered that allows some users to gain access to LinkedIn profiles of other Zoom users. April 3: Recordings of thousands of Zoom meetings, many containing private information, are found freely viewable and unsecured on the web. Zoom issues another apology, and reveals it's using AES-128 encryption instead of the much more secure AES-256. April 5: Zoom admits in a statement that some calls were being accidentally routed through a whitelisted server located in China. April 6: The first collection of Zoom accounts is found for sale on the dark web. April 13: A further 500,000 Zoom accounts are found for sale on the dark web, with many costing as little as a few cents. April 16: Two new privacy bugs are discovered: One allows an attacker to view and download Zoom meeting videos stored in the cloud via an unsecured link, and a second lets deleted meeting recordings be viewed in the cloud for hours after deletion.April 20: Former engineers at Zoom partner Dropbox revealed that the company knew of a 2019 Mac exploit months before finally addressing it.April 22: Security researchers discover a flaw in Zoom that, with the proper malware, could allow recording of a meeting without host or attendee knowledge, even if recording is disabled. April 28: A US government intelligence report warns that Zoom could be vulnerable to spying by foreign governments.May 8: The New York Attorney General's office closed its inquiry into Zoom's security problems, citing increased security in Zoom 5.0 that led to the New York City Department of Education to allow it back into classrooms. Litigation continues in Connecticut and between Zoom and investors/shareholders.Zoom has issued numerous apologies and pledged to improve its security. SEE: All of TechRepublic's cheat sheets and smart person's guides Some of the security issues, like Zoom bombing, can be addressed by users taking steps to protect their video meetings, and Zoom has enabled by default many of the security features needed to do so. Other issues like poor encryption, lack of end-to-end encryption during meetings, and account theft can't be stopped by good Zoom user habits. Zoom released Zoom 5.0 in late April 2020, addressing many of the security issues listed above.

TechRepublic recently wrote about 10 Zoom alternatives, and some of those options have even added Zoom-like features recently to draw away security-conscious users.  Free video chat options similar to Zoom include:Microsoft Teams, the Microsoft 365-integrated video chat platform, has been extended for free to anyone with an email address, and Microsoft has lifted meeting user limits to help those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Until further notice, free meetings will support up to 300 people for up to 24 hours.Skype video calls can be attended by up to 100 people. For small business teams, this makes it an ideal option.Google Hangouts is free for individual users. Google's enterprise product, Meet, is now free for anyone with a Google account, making it a serious Zoom competitor.Additional resources Downloads of Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams skyrocket as enterprises move to remote work (TechRepublic) Zoom, Skype, FaceTime: 11 video chat app tricks to use during social distancing (CNET) Microsoft Teams: A cheat sheet (free PDF) (TechRepublic) Microsoft Teams 101: A guide for beginners and tips for experienced users (TechRepublic) Move over Zoom, Microsoft Teams now allows for custom backgrounds during video calls (TechRepublic) How to use Skype Meet Now for quick virtual meetings (TechRepublic)Zoom vs Skype: Microsoft pushes its Meet Now feature for 'hassle-free' video calls (ZDNet) Verizon adds BlueJeans video conferencing platform to its portfolio (TechRepublic) 6 video conferencing platforms bringing large events online (TechRepublic)What are Zoom's best features for business users?The allure of Zoom isn't only in its myriad features, but also in its incredible usability. Zoom is designed with non-tech people in mind: Its interface is simple, signing up is quick and hassle-free, and it works well with minimal user input. Anyone looking for a video conference solution for teams with people who don't like, or are unfamiliar with, modern tech will find Zoom a great solution. Any business using Zoom or considering using it should keep an eye on tech news about security issues, and be sure to follow best security practices to protect your Zoom calls from unauthorized entry. Even with the addition of end-to-end encryption and other features, it's important to ensure all the appropriate security options are enabled.If Zoom's security troubles over the course of 2020 aren't enough to dissuade you from adopting it for business web conferencing, there are several enterprise features worth considering.Video conferencing with Zoom, which is a free product with restrictions, can be upgraded with one of several plans that expand its features to include more participants, additional security features (like SSO, user management, and administrator controls), and other features.SEE: The future of work: Tools and strategies for the digital workplace (ZDNet/TechRepublic special feature) | Download the free PDF version (TechRepublic)Zoom Rooms is one such offering. At $49 room/month, Zoom Rooms integrates with existing A/V hardware in meeting rooms and features many of the user-friendly aspects of the regular Zoom app at a larger scale. Zoom Rooms has one-touch meeting join, wireless sharing, interactive whiteboard support, and its own scalable and supported hardware that can adapt to meeting rooms of various sizes.Zoom also has a webinar platform that extends 100-person meetings to allow up to 10,000 view-only attendees. The 100 participants have the ability to use Zoom just like a regular call, making it ideal for panel discussions, media events, and education. There's also Zoom Phone, a cloud-hosted enterprise phone-as-a-service platform that lets businesses offload their enterprise phone systems to free up a bit of server room space. Zoom Phone integrates with Salesforce, Office 365, and G Suite out of the box, and phone calls can be turned into Zoom calls with a single click.Whether your business should choose, and by extension trust, Zoom is up to you and your IT leaders. With most of Zoom's enterprise features being designed for offices and not remote workers (with the exception of premium video conferencing tiers), it may make sense to delay a decision until Zoom has a chance to fix its security issues and repair its reputation.Additional resources The complete Zoom guide: From basic help to advanced tricks (ZDNet) 5 best Zoom features you must try (TechRepublic) 250+ tips for telecommuting and managing remote workers (TechRepublic Premium) Telecommuting policy (TechRepublic Premium) Coronavirus and its impact on the enterprise (TechRepublic Premium) How to work from home: IT pro's guidebook to telecommuting and remote work (TechRepublic Premium) Is Zoom free?  .

BodyZoom Updated: 08/16/2021 by Computer Hope Zoom may refer to any of the following: 1. When referring to an image, graphic, or document, zoom describes the function of focusing on a section of an image and increasing its overall size for greater detail. Zoom can also refer to magnifying the image on a screen. The image at right is zoomed in 1600% of its original size. As seen in the image, as you zoom into an image each pixel grows in size and makes the image appear pixelated or jaggy. Unfortunately, unlike in the movies, you cannot "enhance" the image to make a zoomed image clearer. Tip Many graphics programs (e.g., Adobe Photoshop), and Internet browsers (e.g., Google Chrome), support the keyboard shortcut key "Ctrl+minus key" to zoom out and "Ctrl+plus key" to zoom in on a picture or web page. Also, Ctrl+0 (the number zero) resets the zoom to the default zoom level if you zoomed in too far. Related information. Zoom in and out of a page. Use the Windows Magnifier to zoom in on parts of your screen. 2. Zoom is a shortened version of the Zoom Video Communications company who specializes in easy to use teleconferencing and chat software. Their Zoom teleconferencing system and software allows users to conduct conference calls over the Internet, and use webcams to see others on the calls. Related information. How to install and use Zoom for videoconferencing. Zoom company and contact information. 3. When referring to a window in a GUI (graphics user interface), zoom is another name for maximize. On Apple computers, the box on a window title bar to increase the size of a window is called a zoom box. 4. Alternatively referred to as optical zoom, zoom is a camera and digital camera feature that uses optics in the lens to enlarge an object without having to move closer. A digital camera may also include a digital zoom, which uses digital technology to get closer to an object beyond the capabilities of the camera lens. A digital zoom is what allows the camera to have a 300x zoom capability. It works by cropping a portion of the image and then enlarging that section. A digital zoom gives the appearance of getting closer to an object, but it also decreases the quality of the image and often makes it more pixelated. 5. When referring to a telecomunications company, Zoom Telephonics company is a manufacturer of computer products that link people and their personal computers to each other. Related information. How to install and use Zoom for videoconferencing. Zoom Telephonics company information. Camera terms, Maximize, Pinch, Pinch-to-zoom, Pixel, Scale, Video terms, Zoom slider
