More About Zoom
Find out what each expert had to say about Zoom.
It’s ideal for team meetings from home, allowing you to have more than 100 people connected at the same time. Additionally, meetings can be recorded to keep a record of what was discussed. I was able to teach my small Marketing class while I was in Orlando while my students were in Miami. I like how Zoom highlights the individuals who are speaking.
Zoom (zoom.us) is the perfect video conference platform.
Both for meetings of two participants and larger videoconferences, with up to 25 people. Zoom stores complete recordings of meetings in the cloud that can then be sent automatically by email. It also supports all operating systems and technologies such as Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Linux, Zoom Rooms and H.323 / SIP
Another interesting feature is to be able to integrate with Google Calendar and add the meeting links to invites automatically that are created directly in your calendar!
I use and would recommend Zoom for any individual in need of video conferencing software. This is an easy to use (and free!) video conferencing software platform. You can join in meetings and host them, inviting remote work individuals from across the country to be present and get in some much needed face time (or audio time) as we all work remote during COVID-19. Best of all, you can download it on your laptop, tablet, or phone so you have access everywhere you go.
As a completely remote team, at Summit Digital Marketing, we rely heavily on video conference software to facilitate us in meeting together as a team as well as with our clients. Our preferred video conferencing service is Zoom, which allows us to regularly host video meetings. Some of the features that we love about Zoom are: the capacity to host a large number of people in every call; the ability for every participant to share their computer screen with the other participants; the ability to record every meeting; the chat feature, and so much more! We are very happy with our experience using Zoom and would definitely recommend it to others.
I use multiple tools, both as a teleworker and as an independent consultant.
However, Zoom is the one I use the most. That’s because it’s free for one-on-one meetings and allows group calls with up to three people free for 40 minutes. Like GoToMeeting, Zoom allows me to screen share applications. I use it when conducting one-on-one meetings as seeing one another’s faces helps create connection and trust. I also use it when conducting live training sessions, as I can see the participant’s reactions as they view my presentation deck live on the screen.
The most convenient screen recording software for me is Zoom. Why? It is widely used, which means that I can quickly find a solution or an answer to any difficulty or question arises.
Another reason why I choose Zoom among all other similar tools is its free version.
The basic free plan says that one free meeting can last up to 40 minutes.
But as my practice shows, I have also had even longer meetings. I recorded every such meeting and could save it on my computer, upload it to a Google drive or Dropbox. What I’m really used to is Google Drive.
With Zoom, I have free access to my camera and microphone, I can show my presentation, chat and see everyone in the meeting.
This screen recording software is really one of the most convenient for me because it is simple, widely used and free. And one more thing for those who want to pay) If you want much more features like a full day meeting, you can buy a paid plan for $14.99 per month.
For video conferencing, I only use Skype and Zoom.
I like zoom mainly because of its high-quality audio, video, and screen sharing capabilities. It has a webinar functionality which can cater up to 100 interactive video participants.
Another great feature of Zoom is its group collaboration functionality. You can create groups that can send text, image, or audio files to members of the group. Its ease of use is comparable to no other software in the market right now. Anyone can be an expert when using Zoom. And the best part, I like to use Zoom to record tutorial videos that I can easily share to my group.
In light of COVID-19 and the need to work remotely, we are using Zoom so that people are able to share their fun experiences of working from home daily. We are sharing what our work stations look like, discussing workout routines we are doing, talking about the music we’re listening to, and so on. We’ve started doing virtual happy hours as well and they’ve been a big hit! In addition, there are plans for a Zoom morning workout routine hosted by team members. Zoom is super easy to use, and the cost is very low.

Zoom is a breeze to set up and use. Somehow, Zoom has mastered using the computer audio and microphone option with my iPhone earbuds, while other vendors play sound out the laptop speakers or do not recognize my microphone. Finally, I love Zoom’s “background image” feature.. It literally looks like I’m participating from a golf course, which encourages me because all the local courses are closed.
