How to get started with Zoom
Please download the latest version of Zoom for best connectivity here: Upgrade / update to the latest version – Zoom Help Center.
Do you need an account to use Zoom?
A Zoom account is not required if you are strictly joining Zoom Meetings as a participant. But you will have to download the app on an IOS device to attend a zoom session. If someone invites you to their meeting, you can join as a participant without creating an account. However, if the host has restricted joining meetings using authentication profiles, then the participant will need a Zoom account to access the meeting. Learn more about joining a Zoom meeting.
A Zoom account is only required if you need to create your own meetings and send invitations to participants. Having a Zoom account allows you to create your own Instant Meetings or Schedule Meetings. An account also allows you to access your personal settings, where you can update your profile or upgrade your plan at any time.
