Revolutionizing Cloud Meetings with Zoom

ZOOM Cloud Meetings was created by the former engineers of Cisco’s Webex project. It uses a hybrid cloud model called meeting connector software to deliver flexible VoIP services across different platforms. The app’s mobile meeting platform supports HD video streaming with audio, group messaging, and screen sharing.

The best iPhone apps for meetings

The app offers free 45-minute video conferencing services for up to 25 participants and unlimited airtime for one-to-one meetings. Business users who need unlimited airtime for group meetings can pay a monthly subscription fee.

When you load the app, you can sign-in to the service using your registered email address, Google account, or Facebook profile. Tap the ‘Host a Meeting’ button and invite participants by sending them a link to the meeting room via email.

Zoom’s conference room offers a grid layout where you can view the video streams of all participants. You can moderate the meeting to ensure a more organized discussion. Participants are given two options when joining a meeting. They can join as an interactive member or simply watch the streams in view-only mode.

As host, you can activate the screen sharing option to display interactive graphics and document files from Dropbox or Box. Then, choose the white boarding option to allow participants to use annotation tools such as highlighter, pen, spotlight, eraser, and color palette.

When not in video mode, ZOOM Cloud Meetings can work as a group messaging platform. It uses the instant messaging (chat) model that supports graphics and audio uploads.
