More About Zoom
Find out what each expert had to say about Zoom.
Zoom seems to be holding up the best with incredible bandwidth demands right now.
Zoom is becoming a favorite because it has some great features like Touch up my Appearance and a control panel that is easy to use. It also does much better for audio-only conference calls than it used to. It is a leaner, lighter interface, so works well for many users.
Zoom is very robust and easily accessible, but only recommend pro as free runs out after 40min. Other than that is a great app.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Great software all around, can really be expensive but I believe they’re the pinnacle of online meeting software. You can really customize your meeting rooms, schedules and have a number of settings like allowing passwords, automatic hosting and easy recording set-ups. Good for large conferences and small teams / 1-on-1s.
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.
I love the app for several reasons. The first is that it’s very easy to use due to its intuitive interface. Also, it can be used for large conference calls involving more than a hundred people. In addition, Zoom is quite stable and reliable and does not compromise the quality of its calls, as it offers HD quality video.
My company uses Zoom not just for video chat, but also to exchange files in a fast and secure manner. I really like the fact that the app perfectly syncs with Google Calendar. It’s handy.
Zoom Meeting is available for both desktop and mobile devices. Although I use it primarily on my computer, on a few occasions I have had to open it on my phone. The quality of the call was surprisingly good. The app is surprisingly robust when chatting with fewer people.
