Zoom Video Conferencing

Get started

Before you can use Zoom, you must install the Zoom software for your device. No big deal, it’s quick and easy. Start by going to the Zoom Download Center.

It’s a good idea to install that software ahead of time so it doesn’t delay your first meeting; however, if you haven’t yet done that, Zoom will automatically start downloading the application to your device. You’ll need to install it before you can start your meeting.
