What is Zoom?
Zoom, like Skype, is a free cloud-based video conferencing service. It lets people communicate with each other and allows them to set up virtual video and audio conferencing, webinars, screen-sharing, live chats, and other co-operative capabilities. It’s primarily being used by businesses to host their meetings with remote clients or colleagues – it’s been especially useful since the Coronavirus as it allowed people to keep in touch while working remotely. Zoom is also equally useful for replacing the classic and old Microsoft Skype (Which is getting a little bit outdated nowadays) and keeping in touch with friends and family.
It’s very simple and easy to install Zoom, as well as using the application. It supports high-quality video calling, high-quality audio, and other collaboration facilities such as texting and sharing your screen. The premium version of Zoom supports up to 1000 participating video callers at the same time… That’s a lot of people in one call. Although it’s completely free to install Zoom, there is, however, a paid version of the service which includes removing the time limits for group conferences, host recording, cloud storage, scheduling, and other features.
The mobile version of Zoom has slightly fewer features than its desktop counterpart – iOS and Android versions contain lesser intuitive versions of the chat and screen sharing features, also, the mobile version only allows up to 4 participants to join one meeting room at a time. Large scale meetings are best used with the desktop variant as complex charts and documents aren’t so challenging to work on with a small screened device like a mobile phone.
In shorts, a giant part of Zoom’s appeal is in its simplicity and ease-of-use. It’s very lightweight and is supported by a variety of devices. The interface is intuitive and clean enough to look at, with other features like gallery view, etc..
