Zoom is a very popular, very light and easy to use application designed for communication via the Internet. It is available in versions for computers and mobile devices (Android and iOS), enabling online teaching and training, and in the case of companies and institutions, videoconferences.
At the outset, it should be noted that what distinguishes Zoom from the competition is, apart from the banal service, also the high quality of image and sound during video meetings. The application offers extremely simple organization and management of meetings, convenient sharing of the screen or application content. The user who creates the meeting has the ability to define the rights of the members, can read text queries from the meeting associates and save its course.
The invitation to participate can be sent in the form of URL addresses or in the form of a text to the provided e-mail address. There were also options for scheduling meetings and securing access to them with a password. In terms of security, the support for SSL and AES-256 bit encryption should be mentioned.
Free plan for private users
While the Zoom client applications themselves are available completely free of charge, they require the use of one of the plans offered by the manufacturer to work. The simplest 'Basic' plan, which is targeted at private users, allows unlimited 1: 1 meetings, creating meetings (hosting) with up to 100 people, and 40-minute group meetings with at least 3 people. The number of meetings alone is not limited. You can find a list of all plans offered by Zoom on the official website .
