Zoom online meetings

Zoom unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, group messaging, and a software-defined conference room solution into one easy-to-use platform.

With a Zoom online meeting, up to 300 participants can join your virtual conference and enjoy such features as high-definition video conferencing; audio conferencing via phone or your computer’s microphone and speakers; screen or application sharing; shared keyboard and mouse control to cooperatively edit files on screen; the ability to instantly change presenters; draw and highlight on the screen; and text chat with other participants.

How do I set up a Zoom account?
