If you have a smart TV, a Google Chromecast, an HDMI cable, or some other way to connect the device you use Zoom on to your TV, you can probably stream your meeting to your TV. That way, you're using your TV as a monitor. Connect the computer, tablet or cell phone to your TV. Open the app on the device you are using and cast your device to your TV screen.
We use a notice period of 2 months. A cancellation does not mean that you can no longer use our services. The subscription remains active until the end date of the closed period. After that the account will be switched to a Free version of Zoom where you will always have the possibility to take out the license again.
Hosts have the ability to record meetings on their local device. This ability can be restricted or allowed for the entire account, specific groups, or individual users. Hosts with a license and the right plan can record to the cloud, with Zoom storing all your meetings for you via cloud storage.
Meetings can be scheduled through the app on desktop or mobile. You can also schedule meetings with third-party calendar programs, such as Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook and more. You can also share links to meetings and meeting IDs with other participants without using an integration program.
For centralized, convenient scheduling, we recommend using the app or a calendar integration.

To participate in a Zoom meeting or Zoom webinar, you do not need a webcam or camera, but you will not be able to display an image during the call. You can still use all the audio features, share your screen and watch other participants' videos.
To join a meeting as a participant, no account is required, but you will not be able to host your own meetings or join meetings. To join a meeting, one of the participants must have an account and host the meeting. With a Zoom account, you can manage meetings in the app and schedule meetings yourself.
The ability to have participants dial in to a meeting using a phone number depends on whether the account has this feature. Check in the invitation if there is an access number that can be used to dial in to the meeting. If there is no access number in the invitation, this option is probably not available. If you dial in using a pay phone number, you will be charged based on your service provider's rates.
In short, if you dial in as a participant using available, toll-free numbers, it will not cost you money. However, it does cost money at the account level to have the dial-in feature available.
There are several ways to invite participants to a scheduled or instant meeting.
Instant Meeting invite, one click on the [Invite+] button when you are in a video meeting
Invite via email
Invite via chat [IM].
Copy the URL or copy the invitation
Invite via a scheduled meeting
Invite via your Zoom web portal or from your mobile app
Invite from your Zoom Room or from a Room system

If you want to hold more than one meeting at a time, you will need multiple host licenses. Group meetings have a 40-minute limit for the basic plans, while the higher price plans override this 40-minute limit.

It is free to sign up for a Zoom account and join meetings as a participant. To host and schedule your own meetings, you will need an account.

For the average user, using Zoom is safe and secure. For a secure experience while using the app, you can use the available security settings and features, such as securing your meeting with a password, using the waiting room feature to screen participants, locking the meeting after all participants have joined, and restricting who can share their screen and perform other functions.
Zoom meeting personal IDs are associated with the personal meeting room of a unique user. Your personal meeting ID and personal link are the ways you and participants can access your personal meeting room. A personal meeting ID is a form of meeting ID, and each Zoom user has a single unique Personal Meeting ID.
A "Zoom client" is the video conferencing software used on your computer or mobile device. The Zoom web client works through your web browser; the Zoom desktop client is a software application that you can download and use on your computer. The web client version can be used without downloading software or plug-ins, but offers limited functionality compared to the desktop client.
A Zoom interview is simply an interview conducted through a Zoom meeting. While the general principles and practices remain the same, there are certain limitations based on the nature of the meeting. There are ways that both the interviewer and the interviewee can get the most out of the interview via video conferencing.
A Zoom link is a URL for a particular Zoom meeting. This is the "physical" online location where participants will meet, and the web address where the meeting will be held. Click on one of these links to open the Zoom meeting via the browser and go to the web page of the meeting. You can also copy and paste the link into your browser's search function, and share the link with other participants.
A Zoom meeting ID is a unique number associated with an immediate or scheduled meeting. They are used to label meeting rooms so that participants can find and access the room. Some meeting IDs from before April 12, 2020 are 9-digit, but most current meeting IDs are 10 or 11-digit.
Screen sharing is a feature available within Zoom meetings on desktop, tablet and mobile. The host and - with the host's permission - participants, can share their device's screen by clicking the Screen Share button. If another user wants to share their screen, the one sharing must stop sharing their screen. The host can also lock screen sharing to participants so that only they can share their screen in a meeting. This is recommended if there are no participants who need to share their screen.
