Hi! I’m Mark, one of the founders of this website. Periodically I will be posting tech advice and information to assist my clients and the general public. If you have an opportunity please check out the other sections of the website. Personally, I like spending time in Explore the World Page where you can often find several virtual experiences such as one of my favorites Virtual Yosemite Park.

Let’s jump in… Today’s topic is the ZOOM App.

In the past week I have received several calls from clients asking about the app Zoom. Zoom is a videoconferencing app for business, education, medical, interviews, and a wide range of purposes as well as remaining connected with friends and family and face-to-face and group get-togethers.

Zoom in divided into three parts : The Zoom meeting, the Zoom private room, and hosting a Zoom meeting. I will only be discussing the Zoom meeting. The majority of the people that use Zoom attend meetings.

Zoom Meetings are the foundation of Zoom, and the term refers to video conferencing meetings using the platform that allows individuals to remotely attend a meeting from various locations. You don’t need to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meetings, you can even meet with clients or conduct interviews with remote candidates virtually. A “Zoom Meeting” simply refers to a meeting that’s hosted using Zoom, and attendees can join the meeting in-person, via webcam or video conferencing camera, or via phone.
