A great alternative to GoToMeeting and WebEx
Kommentare: Zoom is a worthy competitor to GoToMeeting and Webex even if it still lacks some useful features. It does excel in large group environments and video screen participation.
Vorteile: Zoom is a full featured virtual meeting/collaboration software￼. As a long-time user of GoToMeeting, I found Zoom to be an excellent alternative. One of the great things about Zoom is the extent that it can be customized to each individual user. Zoom leverages most of its strengths if it’s applied within a large organization. Each user gets to customized how they engage Zoom at startup. For instance when entering a meeting, users can set as their defaults such things as entering a meeting with microphone and camera turned off.￼￼￼￼. No embarrassing “gotcha” moments. Zoom allows multiple options for screen sharing, using single or multiple screens, or highlighting one app. Zoom also allows for whiteboards. Customer support is generally prompt and helpful. Two billing disputes were resolved within a few minutes. Technical support is also generally helpful and responsive.￼￼￼ A problem with echoes and distortion was quickly diagnosed in the middle of a meeting and fixed with minimal interruption.
Nachteile: One of the glaring defects of Zoom is not being able to share controls.￼￼￼. While users may designate another meeting attendee as a host, it doesn’t allow for passing off of controls. Which is not the same thing. Several users of competitor titles like GoToMeeting or WebEx, find this feature very useful as it lets other meeting attendees manipulate their screen while still retaining overall control of the meeting. The control elements are a bit more spread out on the desktop app than users may be used to with GoToMeeting and WebEx. ￼￼￼ in some cases this means more screen real estate is available for actual meeting content, but it can also make things a little bit harder to find.

Virtual meetings with lots of features
Kommentare: As a coach, I did not want to limit my clients to driving distance, nor do I want to keep a dedicated office that I can bring "strangers" into, outside of my home. Zoom not only allows me to meet seamlessly but allows my clients to meet comfortably in their own home (and not have to worry about baby sitters, etc). The ease of use and multi-platform support removes any compatibility worries when setting meetings.
Vorteile: This software is easy for my clients to set up for a meeting with me virtually. I love that I can share my whole desktop, one window on it, a selected part, or even share the screen of my phone. I've used this to meet on a Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPad. This has options for recording meetings, setting defaults for audio/video, etc. You can do group meetings and allow client(s) to share or control my desktop. One thing I've only used occasionally is assigning a unique meeting ID for each meeting. I just use my standard ID so I can incorporate it into form emails and my scheduling software.
Nachteile: The free version limits group meetings to 40 min (but it's the free version; I do meet with others who have the paid version and it's great)

Zoom video webinar meetings simplicity and power in meeting and webinar software
Kommentare: My overall experience has been very good and we have solidly used at least 2 other leaders in this category over the past 2-5 years.
Vorteile: Zoom seems to work really well on all our platforms and provides many options for our participants on many devices, so we have mobile and desktop and laptop and meeting rooms all in one meeting. We regularly use Zoom to meet across the country in large,medium and small groups. It has the potential to have 1000 participants if you have the right plan with the webinars option. We quite often connect up our usb high quality microphones after the meeting is started and they are picked up instantly with the choice of sources available. You can present graphics, desktop and sound across the presentation. Another cool feature is that if you are using multiple screens it is really easy to choose what you share. Recording the meetings is really simple with the choice of recording to your pc or the cloud for later playback and sharing. Also these recorded files come in various options including audio only. We sometimes grab these recorded training sessions and edit them and turn them into repeatable training resources. RSVP can be managed with the addon for webinars. you can setup many defaults for variables before the meeting starts like record, mute on, video on.
Nachteile: I think the only thing I am not sure that it does is allow you to mute incoming calls in case they are noisy, in most other instances we have had no issue muting computer based listeners if they became a litttle noisy.

Is it healthy to like a meeting and chat software this much?
Kommentare: Try the demo and see if it works best for your business. I know that I don't have any regrets.
Vorteile: I was introduced to Zoom at my first job, and I was surprised with all of the in-chat features and integrations (Outlook, Google Chrome plugins, etc). After speaking with my finance team, it seems more simple than most for billing and subscription purposes as well. I use Zoom for both my personal and work life, and hope that they continue to keep improving the software in the future.
Nachteile: There's a couple of glitches here and there as the company continues to scale. It's not too big of a complaint though.

Very Easy and Convenient Platform for Remote Team Meetings & Presentations
Kommentare: My experience with Zoom Meetings and Chat has been great. It's quickly become one of our team's most valuable collaboration tools. It feels like a shared meeting platform that's truly collaborative. Instead of one person starting and running a meeting, we can each step in and lead on-the-fly, naturally. So far, this platform feels more like your team being in the same room together than other professional meeting platforms.
Vorteile: It's easy to start and join meetings -- both for internal teams and external clients. Just send a link and anyone can participate. This is a very intuitive alternative to platforms like Skype, Join.me and GoToMeeting. And our team's experience is that it's more reliable than Skype. We're a small group of remote workers, so our team is online together via Zoom daily, some of us continuously for multiple hours. It's easy to swap screen share (no need to "promote" a participant to "presenter"; easy to record and keep meetings. We use the chat feature to share files and off-screen commentary. We love being able to see each other in real time, which makes our meeting and collaboration time feel almost "in-person." Best of all, each of us on our team has our own unique meeting link. We've bookmarked each other's "Zoom Rooms," so we can easily hop on and off with each other as needed for "huddles" throughout the day. Our clients appreciate the "face-to-face" meeting time. It's just as easy for them to participate. Zoom feels really organic and collaborative. The platform never gets in the way.
Nachteile: If you are presenting on Zoom you have to keep your eye on the screen to see if you have chat messages waiting, but that is the same with GoToMeeting. The chat alert is definitely more visible than in GoToMeeting, and it feels more natural and less distracting to open and respond to the chat in Zoom. Basically, Zoom has done a great job with the meeting controls to keep everything very simple and visible.

Great for people that use technology, hard for some older folks
Amber elizabeth M.
Kommentare: While we survived on the free platform for a long while at one point, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the paid version to others as the features really add a lot of robustness. Any business that hasn't caught on to video chats can try this product for free and learn what they are missing!
Vorteile: Because you can combine phone and video options, there's virtually no reason people can't join your meeting virtually! At two companies where we've used this software, we've been able to have remote meetings, schedule calls for clients, and woo investors. And this was before we were on the subscribed plan! Zoom's free version (requires download on your phone) is awesome for doing a video chat with clients or even as a prelim interview for new employee candidates. Because the software is free, or access on a computer is a breeze, you can video chat with people that may not have iphone, skype or whatever else that generally requires an account.
Nachteile: In reality, the problems were probably more likely user error than Zoom's fault, I would love to see a way for Zoom to notify the participants that one of the feeds is frozen or glitching. I know this likely has a lot more to do with the streaming connection of the person on the line. However, if Zoom were able to indicate that one person's feed was frozen through detecting no new data, the other participants might have a better chance to pause the conversation if necessary. Without the notification, people will continue talking and eventually have to backtrack using more time than necessary. The second "Con" is that well, if you need to connect with an older generation, you might want to coach them through this in advance. We've had some delays in getting meetings started, issues with microphones on computers not connecting, and people that will call in AND connect to video --- hello, feedback noise!

A Fine, Very Customizable Video Conferencing Tool with Extra Features
Kommentare: My experience with this software has been reliable when excluding certain behaviors, such as moving Zoom windows around when recording or using the annotation tool. I haven't got the chance to use frequently this software on other devices, but I have mixed feelings when using it on a Linux system because of the aforementioned issues. I find Zoom is a solid option for one-on-one meetings, particularly considering everything needed works perfectly on a free plan. For bigger meetings, a Premium plan is a must and one can still benefit a lot from this software. It has enabled me to do screen sharing very easily without having to know anything about video recording or editing. Even on low-end PCs, I feel that Zoom is quite capable of rendering a good enough video for formal meetings that need to be shared later by other means. The encoding used for exported videos is a great compromise between size and quality, making it a viable option when it comes to sharing a meeting online. I wouldn't recommend Zoom for producing high-quality videos intended for commercial use or for presentations with a large audience (above 100 participants), but it works perfectly fine for personal projects and for most business meetings. I find I could benefit more if I were able to use all the available features as one often needs to rely on workarounds such as using an image editing tool to make drawings from screenshots instead of being able to directly work on the screen as intended by the software.
Vorteile: Zoom brings to the table premium features for free. One-on-one meetings are not time-limited or missing any essential option. It is possible to set up recurring meetings by generating a permanent Zoom link, which is very useful to have custom links for many different contacts. Zoom makes it possible to share the screen with others: either to record a solo session; screen share with others in a meeting while having the ability to record audio and video; share only a specific window or the entire desktop and there's also a quick way to switch between different screens from participants, all of it being configurable in the application. Scheduling a new meeting is straightforward and numerous options are presented to make it easy to obtain the desired behavior by default when launching a meeting. Meetings can also be integrated with external calendars and provide more advanced options to facilitate interactions when the meeting starts, such as automatically recording on the local computer and asking for a password to prevent unauthorized access. Being able to chat with attendees and store all relevant information about them in an address book inside Zoom are other features that make interactions with frequent users a breeze. There are plenty of settings available from the main window to adjust audio, video and recording details and even integration with dual monitors.
Nachteile: Technical issues are present with the Linux desktop application in certain hardware conditions, especially with the annotation tool, rendering it totally useless. While using that tool, the screen isn't updated in real-time and won't allow displaying drawings with a transparent background to make it possible to annotate on the screen while keeping the desktop visible in the background. There are also various notable glitches when moving Zoom windows around, such as the video window being duplicated when recording and staying on the screen for extended periods of time, ruining the quality of any recording being made. Because of those shortcomings, it is impractical to try and move the windows when recording and some features simply need to be forgotten at those times. It is also inconvenient that the toolbar won't display properly when set at the bottom of the screen, as it only opens from top to bottom, making the list of tools go outside the bottom part of the screen and effectively unreachable. There is no way to resize the toolbar which occupies too much space on tiny monitors (screen size of 13 inches and below). In a similar fashion, the main window when a meeting is happening can't easily be resized as some buttons will disappear and become unusable, making it harder to record the session or end the meeting.

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom – For a smooth ride to your next online event
Affordable. Reliable. Easy. That’s Zoom in a nutshell. We have experienced the heartache of running a webinar only to have the audio cut in and out and glitch the entire time – ultimately causing our attendees to drop off. But, that’s not the case with Zoom. Our company, belonging to the industry of software QA and testing, regularly hosts remote meetings to check in and collaborate on progress and future team initiatives. We decided to make the switch from GoToMeeting (a great alternative to Zoom) because it fit our needs more accurately. Zooms customer support is remarkably responsive and very quick to solve any issues encountered.
Zoom video conference calling and webinar is fitting for any sized company or organization. Meetings can be scheduled within seconds and added directly from Zoom’s platform to Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, or Outlook Calendar; which allows you to set up invites and add additional attendees. Zoom provides the option to either enroll in a monthly or an annual plan, in which you can choose to deactivate and/or reactivate at any time (beneficial for saving extra bucks if you do not run regular monthly webinars). The plan that includes 100 participants, for both video conferencing and webinar, are priced at an affordable price per month (GoToWebinar is nearly double in price for the same plan). The audio on calls and webinars comes across crisp; we have never experienced any issues with dropped calls or glitches during webinars). Having the ability to join calls and webinars from any desktop, tablet, and/or phone (iOS and android) is convenient for anyone looking to access meetings on the go. Zoom includes various features, i.e. live screen-sharing, whiteboard, etc., which helps relieve the difficulties of working remotely. If you are holding an international meeting, I.e. training, trainees can join by laptop and listen over laptop speakers (they would have to use laptop and not call in directly via phone to avoid having to pay for extra international call credits – which costs an additional /month).
Zoom comes in handy when working with distributed teams; Zoom’s conference calling features are great for doing demos, exercises, sprint planning, etc.
Nachteile: When joining a webinar or a call via mobile device, it’s unclear how to join audio (I thought there was something wrong with my phone because it was telling me my audio was on but I could not hear anything during the webinar – turns out I couldn’t see the audio number which was hidden behind the webinar). If anyone else has this confusion you can also look at the original webinar confirmation or follow-up reminder and locate the call-in number there. The poll questions and results to not display in the webinar recordings so you will have to edit or takes screenshots and merge them into your recording (we use I movie to do this).

Zoom is the backbone of my coaching practice.
Devora gila B.
Kommentare: Gives me an edge over my competitors, credibility, community, communication, engagement. Added value to coaching experience -- recordings are priceless.
I have been using Zoom for a few years now. I love its ease of use and quality. How many times have I been on a Skype call and it froze in the middle???? I avoid Skype at all costs now.
With Zoom I can easily schedule my client meetings. I actually have the invitation already pasted into my appointment confirmation and reminder autoresponder, with the url and dial-in information. It's so easy to manage appointments this way. The recording feature is helpful as well. When your session is over, the recording is available in different formats, video and audio, and gets automatically processes and stored in your computer and available to upload to my clients. I like the video conferencing feature for groups as well, with different screen possibilities. I can choose to view everyone at once, only a few people at once, or the speaker. This is helpful for webinars and group coaching. Share screen is a feature I use in different ways. For client enrollment conversations. I can actually share the Agreement form and go through all of the contract terms in real time, being able to close the sale more quickly. In client sessions I can go through their website or materials and give real-time feedback, which is invaluable. Chat feature makes workshops, webinars and group sessions engaging and lively. The speaker can read the chat questions and comments and respond.
Nachteile: I can't find much to compain about. I was using the free feature and was dissapointed that I couldn't have a longer session with more than one person, but I've since upgraded. There is a video tutorial for how to do a background in the upgraded version but I'm finding it a little hard to follow. At one point I thought I had a different version of Zoom than the one they were showing. So that was confusing.

Zoom for Campus Meeting and Remote Faculty
Kommentare: Overall this has helped us to reach online students so they feel that we are real, live people and not just some robot behind an email address. Being able to video chat on a platform that doesn't really have technical difficulties in using has been a huge help for those that are less comfortable with sites that we typically use to video chat or host webinars or advising groups. I think that the ease of use in learning how to operate a zoom meeting is a big pro. Additionally, this has completely changed how we can work with candidates who aren't able to attend on campus interviews in our actual physical space. This is opening up a lot of possibilities for us!
This product is essential to our team. We use this for a variety of reasons which to name a few include: communicating with students for advising or progressions meetings, communicating with fellow staff members or team members who are working remotely or telecommuting, communicating with faculty who are out of state, hosting large school or department/college meetings to allow multiple staff or faculty to "remote in" at the same time so even though they are not physically in the space, they can still see and hear what is going on in the physical meeting and we can hear them and see them as well.
I think this is a great concept for smaller meetings where we are all remote as well. It's kind of hard sometimes to schedule up conference calls and being able to use personal laptops or work computers to video chat with a smaller group has allowed us to stay more connected. As an added bonus, it really puts a face to faculty that we really see or who are out of state so we don't ever see them physically on our campus. It helps to create a sense of team and unity when we are all so far apart sometimes.
The pricing options are AWESOME as well! The service teams have been great about working with us to switch things up or bump our plans up as well. The video quality for what we get, even with internet/bandwith problems has always been top notch too, which I really love.
Nachteile: No complaints! Their site is easy to use, their service teams are quick to respond, and there are multiple pricing/package options for you to be able to customize what you need for your uses.

Incredible. Extremely easy to use (as a host and as an end user), and works well.
Kommentare: Biggest benefit is helping us to serve out our mission of education and conservation by letting us reach students who cannot come to us.
Vorteile: Ease of use is its best feature. From the host point of view, it is easy to access all of its features. Setting up a meeting is quick, sending out invites is easy, connecting to the meeting and starting a meeting couldn't be easier. From the end user point of view, this system is great. It doesn't need to be installed on the user's PC by an administrator. We just click the meeting link, the meeting launches in a temporary instance, and we are good to go. There is an app for Android and iOS, but those too are easy to install. It uses whatever camera, microphone, and speakers you've got setup on your device. We use this software as part of our Distance Learning programs. And we've used it with schools, museums, and hospitals. Think kids that are sick and cannot leave the hospital. Or kids from a landlocked state, who haven't seen the ocean. We take them on virtual tours of our Aquarium, and show them the bay and the shipping channel, and it's all LIVE VIDEO and two way communication so we can answer questions and show the kids what they want to see. This software is so easy to use, not just for our staff, but also for educators and hospital staff. It's extremely easy for them to click a link and know the software will work without their having to call their IT staff to install software and test it over and over again. We have not had any problems whatsoever with connecting to Zoom or during our meetings that weren't related to our internet or end user's internet connection.
Nachteile: I'm hard pressed to pinpoint what I like least about this software. Seriously, it's easy to use, it has a lot of features, and everyone likes it. I would say maybe the cost is probably the worst thing about it. But honestly, it is not even that expensive.

An alternative to communicate
Alberto josé R.
Kommentare: The best tool to give presentations about business, virtual classes and group connections. It is a very stable tool with a high quality. Since I use it, I do not even open my Skype.
Vorteile: Zoom seems to me a very good program as an alternative for all those people who use videoconferencing a lot. Some use Hangouts, others Skype, and it depends on what you as a user are looking for. What I like most about Zoom is that it is a program that you can use to give a more business aspect to your presentations or virtual meetings since there are few people who know this application that has nothing to envy to Skype. In fact it seems a thousand times more stable and much more intuitive to use. One of the features that I like most about this application is that it assigns you a unique room number (it would be something like your identification in the application). With this number you will be able to invite partners, friends, family, clients and potential prospects to connect to your room through this number. For example, my room has a number, that is, if someone enters that ID on the platform, it would be connected to my room. Now, other things that I like about the application is the notification that is sent when someone tries to enter your room, before you have opened it. I choose between Zoom and Skype, I would choose Zoom a thousand times.
Nachteile: Like any application, there is a paid version and a free version. The only bad thing about having the free version is that you have a limit of 40 minutes each time you open your room. That is to say that if your presentation lasts 1 hour, after 40 minutes it will close and you will have to reopen it to finish the presentation. So if you need more than 40 minutes to use your room I blindly recommend that you pay for the premium version. It will give you unlimited time and your capacity of participants in the room will increase considerably.

Perfect to have active communication in a remote Startup.
Kommentare: Zoom is definitely optimal for a remote Startup, talking from experience, my actual job fits perfectly in this category. You may ask ~Why is that?~ its features are perfect to manage a small team. I will make a list of important features included on zoom: - You can share your scream with your team. Multiple people can share at the same time if you can choose an option, if not, only one person will be allowed to share. - The possibility to have rooms to segment work. - You can make global announcements if you need to communicate with people on other channels without going into their channel. - It is really easy to have meetings with customers or potential leads, all you need to do is to share a zoom URL link and send it to them, they will be directly moved into the meeting room without installing any software.
Vorteile: The ability to have real-time collaboration with channels and screen sharing, basically the ability to manage other people with easy to use tools, the audio quality is also great.
Nachteile: They could definitely implement a tag option for members and other options when you right click someone as host.

I feel more connected to my colleagues thanks to Zoom!
Kommentare: Zoom allows our organization to stay connected with each other through virtual meetings. This is essential for our team because we have a large mix of staff who work from home. Zoom also allows us to reach a larger audience by having the capability to host webinars to reach participants all over the county. This is how we expand our visibility and our work.
Vorteile: I like being able to schedule Zoom meetings to connect with my remote colleagues who often work from home. I also like using its chat features for quick questions and to stay in touch. This saves a lot of time texting from the phone. I also like that it has all the tools needed to host webinars- you can record and share the videos later with participants, you can have co-hosts, and people can take turns sharing their screens for collaboration. If you use Google for calendaring, there’s even an app add-on that allows users to schedule meetings directly from your calendar. I also like that it has a delegation feature so I can schedule meetings on behalf of others. This is a great feature for assistants.
Nachteile: There are a lot of features in Zoom - so it may take some time to learn them all. The interface doesn’t feel that intuitive. I find myself looking for how to do this and that more than I’d like. The good news: the help section has great how-to instructions and videos that are easy to follow.

The best webinar software I’ve used
Kommentare: It has been nearly seamless. We are very satisfied and look forward to more features in the future.
Vorteile: Zoom has a lot of customization options per account and even down to the user level, but still manages to keep things simple and user friendly. The video quality is good and it’s easy to grab recordings and send them to attendees.
Nachteile: Occasionally attendees aren’t able to log into a call using the pre-generated and we have to send a new invite at the last minute.

Excellent product, easy to use
Kommentare: Overall, Zoom enables my organization to easily have productive meetings with stakeholders without having to actually gather in one room, which may sometimes be difficult to organize. Zoom allows us to share screens easily and the call quality is excellent, which means that we are not wasting time making sure that everyone on the call can hear each other and that everyone can see the screen that is being projected.
Vorteile: Zoom is an extremely reliable service that is easy to use. It is very easy to share screens among the members of the call, and the call quality - both via phone and via computer audio - is very good. There are options to mute and to stop video. Zoom is a consistently good and reliable product. There is a minimal learning curve with the product, which means that users can be up and running within minutes.
Nachteile: When muting a call, there is a voice that reminds the user that they have muted the call, which makes it difficult to hear the people who are actually speaking on the call. It is possible to miss what is being said.

Zoom - Conferencing at ease
Kommentare: Zoom is the ultimate place to not just have a video meeting with people but be able to see all of the team members at once, interact with them while sharing your or other computer screen. It is perfect platform to make the best use of time when you have lot of team member who are located across different states of different countries.
Vorteile: Zoom video conferencing so easy to use that one needs no prior knowledge of how the system works. It has all the perks one needs. I like that with zoom there is a free account one can create and get started with it right away. I use it all the time with my project partner when we are unable to meet. The Zoom meeting allows us to exchange the control of sharing the screen and the best feature I like is we can give each other the control of mouse and keyboard as well for each others screen. With Zoom it practically feels like the other person is right next to you. This online video conferencing platform is widely used in many companies especially when there lot of virtual team members in a project. During my Graduate program projects some students are taking classes online and working with them is hard as there is no face to face interaction and chatting through emails or phone is not as productive. I have used zoom on all such projects and it helped me establish a good personal interaction with such team members and also gain their trust and make our project time a lot more productive.
Nachteile: Zoom if used as a free platform has some limitations such as number of participants on a video conferencing. Also time limit if there are 3 or more participants. To have uninterrupted video conference with lot of team members upgraded paid membership is required else you will be creating a new meeting every hour which is not such a huge issue considering its free but it is just a little hassle. Besides that I have not seen any drawbacks of using zoom so far.

A great video conferencing/meeting platform....
Md masoom R.
Kommentare: My overall experience with Zoom Video Conferencing is amazing, I like everything about it if I talk about audio quality, video quality, adding multiple people and working on low-speed internet, I must say that it works amazingly on it.
Vorteile: I like almost everything about Zoom Video Conferencing. Mostly I like its video quality and audio quality when I use it for conversation. The way it gives me access to add multiple people to a meeting is amazing and I also like this feature the most. Overall I can say that I am satisfied with this product.
Nachteile: There is one thing that I want to highlight that I dislike about it and that is Zoom Video Conferencing is a little bit expensive compared to other tools, but it is worth to spend on it.

Zoom offers the most convenient video conferences with efficient communication.
Kommentare: Zoom is most trending tool for attending meetings live from anywhere and it allows us to experience collaborative meetings. Quality of sound and video is very clear which is very helpful for us to understand others points clearly. Install easily on our smart devices and reliable for work. As per my personal experience this tool need more updates for work more smoothly.
Vorteile: Zoom is one of the most trending tools for video conferencing and all of its features are relatively easy for use. We can attend our important business meetings live from anywhere which is very useful option for us. Controls and functionality are very simple to use even new user can use this tool easily. Video quality is very clear which helps us to understand others points clearly. Zoom is very helpful option which provide us single platform where we can describe about our projects easily. It provides us great experience of video conferencing and it’s easy to install on our systems and reliable for work.
Nachteile: Zoom is an online tool for conferencing but sometime while we are working with slow data we are unable to experience clear video conferencing. Sometime while working with this tool little glitches appeared during call and this tool is bit expensive. Chat feature is good but more templates would be useful for us. Mobile version doesn’t perform well so need more updates for reliable work.

The best I could find
Kommentare: I have had a great time with this software. Download both for computer and download the app for mobile phones and tablets have worked just fine. All the users have had good expirience, too. All the webinars and lessons I've taught have flowed smoothily and successfully. I have had very few shortcomings with it, but none which I had to resort to support.
Vorteile: Zoom is easy to use both for the administrator and for the end user. It brings really useful resources for those who want to promote a webinar or teach lessons online. You can have split rooms (breakout rooms) and the chat (written). It is high quality video and sound and it doesn't use a lot of band when you keep a conference. I am really satisfied with the product.
Nachteile: There are a few features which could be improved. For instance, it isn't possible to know who is writing on the screen or which user has a squeaking sound. So you need to turn off one or another feature when you have a large audience just because you can't control, and that may ruin your transmission. Also, sometimes a few features seem not work, such as, in breakout rooms, you assign a person to a room and need to move him/her to another room, the gets stuck; or when you want to cancel someone's participation, it just doesn't work properly.

Face to Face Collaboration with Ease
Kommentare: Overall, I enjoy using the software. It having a record to the cloud feature is a great bonus especially for board meetings that need to be documented. I would definitely recommenced to others.
Vorteile: Zoom is an extremely powerful tool if you're looking for something more formal than FaceTime or Skype with a lot more capabilities. From the virtual classroom features, to the conference style/keynote features, it has the versatility to meet every virtual need for facilitating information. Specifically in my work, I use it to collaborate with thought partners across the state and work on shared documents in real time. When I'm presenting to the group I can enter presenter mode and be the only screen allowed to project while a live comments and chat box will allow me to monitor any key questions that arise. It's super helpful.
Nachteile: So far the issue that I have been encountering with Zoom is that on multi device sessions, it doesn't prioritize those with video on screen. It sometimes gets stuck on the phone icon after someone from the phone just spoke. It's not much, but tiny things like that I do notice.

Kommentare: Zoom has transformed our internal conferencing, internal training, and external webinar experiences within a few months from a hassle, to an important piece of our business.
Vorteile: love this software, A+ for call quality, Video calls, ease of use, simple set up, plug-ins, Messenger, Zoom Rooms! and they are always improving, and always willing to help.
Nachteile: every once and while the connection is weird/off, we just hang up and call again and it is fine.

Critical for Medium to Large Remote Companies
Kommentare: This is video conferencing made available to nearly anyone with it being available on every major platform and supports dial in. If you work with teams of 10 or more and need video conferencing I've found no other service that work better. We use Zoom at my company for every meeting from 1:1s to All Hands meetings of 90+ people (up to 500 I believe). Overall the product is quite simple and makes Video and VOIP calling easy. It has a great ability to allow you to schedule video calls in the future and share a link to the video. This is super handy for calls within your team or outside.
Vorteile: It makes video calling with large groups super easy, allows for video call record, easy invite with a link to call, scheduling calls. I use the Desktop app most the time, but the mobile app has been very handy for calls on the go. I've never used a video conferencing app that can support so many callers in one session, makes for a pretty magical experience to bring your whole team together from literally across the world.
Nachteile: Zoom for me does have call stability issues. Overall I have relatively rock solid internet connection, yet it can drop video calls from time to time. The tricky thing is it's hard to know who drops the call. It's a con, but I want to be gracious to Zoom because they essentially perform a miracle every time you make a call with tons of people. I wish they had a better way to downgrade video performance but keep video calls live. The truth still stands that I'm not sure anyone else is doing what they are capable of, so overall still very pleased despite the occasional hiccup with connection.

Zoom: Your Best Choice in Meetings
Kommentare: I can sing praises of Zoom all day. It's really much better than Skype or even Basecamp (although that's a bit hard to compare). You really can't beat free.
Vorteile: In my line of work, having everyone be on the same page is important. We use BaseCamp for a lot of our shared work, and Google Hangouts, but we're also very, very visual people. Zoom Meetings is great because for one, it's FREE (for up to 40 minutes) and we can get in as many as 100 people for the most basic plan. Skype is less reliable with picture-quality, which is something that Zoom makes priority. We often hold our production meetings in Zoom, because we have parts of our team across the country. It's important that everybody can actually watch and see what we're referencing when (our creative director) draws stuff on the white board in his office.
Nachteile: To be honest there's not much to complain about. Zoom is really more than adequate to fit our needs, and we have yet to really encounter an issue with them.

The Best All-Around Conferencing Program
Kommentare: Zoom allows me to work! For yeas I've taught lessons online, and exclusively used Zoom. Because of its amazing reliability all over the world, I don't ever have to worry about having a backup plan. Zoom lets me do what I do best, and I couldn't recommend them more.
1. It's very easy for people who don't have Zoom installed to join your meeting -- they just click the link and they're in.
2. Excellent audio and video quality, especially if an attendee is in a place where connectivity is poor.
3. Very good value for money
4. Add-ons such as breakout rooms and webinars
5. Advanced screenshare and annotation features, including sharing computer audio
6. Ability to use either the computer audio or dial-in from a telephone Finally -- and I coudln't say how this happened -- but in 2016 I emailed them saying that I couldn't figure out how to do certain things on the platform and wanted to cancel, and Eric Yuan, the CEO of the company, got on a Zoom meeting with me to explain how to make Zoom meet my needs. And to be clear, I wasn't an enterprise customer on a huge plan -- I had the lowest of all individual subscriptions. That interaction made me a fan for life.
Nachteile: There's very little that I don't like. I dislike that in the mobile version if I switch to another application it turns my video off, but that may apply to competitors as well. Sometimes if a person has high security settings on their machine, the download wont' be automatic. Having it at as a stand-alone application has many advantages, but the disadvantage is that it's not quite as simple as a browser-based webapp.
