Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that allows users to communicate over audio, video, and text. With Zoom, users can host group meetings, webinars, webcasts, and other video conferencing activities. Zoom allows for screen sharing and recording, as well as the ability to access meetings from various devices, including PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
Zoom became popular in 2020, soon after the Covid-19 pandemic hit. The platform allowed users to interact with colleagues and clients safely and simply. Video meetings are now often chosen over in-person meetings to reduce time and costs.
Other popular video-conferencing apps include Microsoft Teams, FaceTime and Google Chat.
