Thoughts on Zoom Cloud Meetings?

2020-05-04 09:39 #0 by: Niklas

Zoom has been in the media a lot lately. First for its sky-rocketing stock price (because of Corona), being user-friendly and easy to set up. Then for having bad security.

I’m always looking for better apps than those I already use. I am sure the security issues will be taken care of, but how does Zoom compare to for instance Facetime? FaceTime is Apple-only, but other than that?

Zoom is very user friendly and since I have crap internet connection in my apartment, it works better than FaceTime, Skype or Facebook messenger for some reason. On top of that, I like how it simulates a real in person conversation. Whoever is talking will pop up larger on the screen. I have also used Zoom for many online courses and it always worked out great.

Thanks! I like that the person talking gets the most screen. FaceTime does that too. It makes it easier not to talk over each other. Do you know the limit of participants in Zoom? If it's more than ten, it doesn’t really matter exactly how many.
