Zoom is a video communications program noted for its simple interface and usability, especially for non-tech people. It has become very popular during the coronavirus pandemic for one-on-one meetings and group video conferences. Zoom is compatible with Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Chrome OS, and Linux.
How To Join A Zoom Meeting
You don’t need to install any extra software to join a Zoom meeting. You can join using a web browser. Supported web browsers are:
● Internet Explorer 10 or higher
● Chromium Edge 80 or higher
● Google Chrome 53.0.2785 or higher
● Safari 10.0.602.1.50 or higher
● Firefox 76 or higher
A link to the meeting will be emailed to all subscribers to the LVCA E-Newsletter on the day of the event; just click the link in the email to join the meeting. If you don’t have the Zoom desktop app installed, the page will urge you to download the app, but this is not necessary. You can ignore that and skip down to the small print: “If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser.” Click the highlighted text in “join from your browser”. Finally, sign in to the meeting with your name. This name will appear in the list of meeting attendees that everyone will see (you may use a nickname or pseudonym).
You may optionally download the Zoom app, which usually works better than using Zoom through a web browser. After you download the Zoom desktop app on your Mac, PC, or smart phone, open the Zoom app and click “Join A Meeting.” Then enter the meeting ID and your name. Get the meeting ID and password from the invitation email mentioned above.
