Current annoyance: regular phone calls will let me connect with AirPods on the fly, but zoom calls won’t??? That’s just sloppy.
Previous review is still relevant:
I hate that I can’t disable notifications for certain times of the day. I use Zoom for work, not socializing, and I hate having to remember to log in and log out every day or else risk non-urgent client calls late at night or on the weekends. I also hate that Zoom requires so much bandwidth for voice calls, and has such a long lag during conversations. I can use competitors’ VOIP apps without lag from the same physical location/bandwidth, but zoom call quality is AWFUL. If you have excellent very high speed internet, it does the job, but for those of us in rural areas or relying on cellular data, we aren’t a priority for Zoom Inc. And what’s up with the lack of text messaging/SMS? We pay for zoom phone service and there’s no texting beyond the internal extensions? IT’S 2020: WHY ISN'T THIS A THING? There’s also a super annoying bug with Grasshopper: I use Zoom for one job and I use Grasshopper for another. After making a Zoom call, if I receive a Grasshopper call while still logged into the zoom app, it shows up as a Zoom call, and then disconnects as soon as I pick up. Then I’ve missed a call for my second job because my first job’s phone service is buggy. I AM DISAPPOINTED, ZOOM.
I liked zoom initially and have been using it now for over a year. Recently, while video editing a recorded session I realized the poor quality of the recording and the fact that I could not render in true HD. I thought that this was a mistake since I had done this so many times before. I spent 1 hr checking my preferences for my video editor and zoom. However, the next week the same thing happened… low resolution. This is the third class session in a row.
Upon further research, it seens that zoom has been taking on more customers than its bandwidth can handle so instead of holding off on expanding and taking care of its own existing customers, zoom has reduced features in video quality and recording so that it can grow and it seems to me that the only logical explanation is to make more profit.
I reached out to zoom, but it is impossible to get in contact with a person. I have been asking through virtual assistants for zoom to restore the features that they had when I purchased or refund my money. But I have yet to speak with a person.
If you are looking for a quality video conference experience, zoom will not give it to you.
Zoom meeting may be the go to solution for group video meetings and phone conferences, but it’s zoom phone service barely supports the basics. It’s crippled in part by a lack of understanding of basic telephony concepts such as call waiting, within Zoom’s support staff. This lack of understanding is also evident in this version of the zoom app where basic phone features are not offered and where they ate, the implementation is haphazard.
Many of the calling features they claim to offer aren’t complete or at parity with the offerings from companies with experience providing business phone services. It’s apparent that they’ve attempted to squeeze telephone service into their existing web meeting systems. Unfortunately it doesn’t work and only results in a confusing user interface.
Perhaps Zoom phone would satisfy the needs of a simple residential or single line small business customer, but it’s not yet ready for a business needing support for more than a few lines.
I lead a Bible study for senior ladies and welcome to anyone who is interested in the study of the Word of God. It’s been seven months I had been using diligently the zoom Bible study. It had been nothing but blessings from the Lord. I am very grateful to the Lord Jesus, the Eternal God Almighty for (zoom.us ) for the opportunity to meet, see each other, discuss and share prayer needs for self and other and bible study and pray together. The Lord has answered many of our prayers for which we are ever so grateful. Thank you Lord!
Very bad audio even when the meeting was with only one other person. We do have very high speed Internet connection so that’s not the problem. The image was blurry also and the sound was breaking up and volume was too soft. Even when I asked the other person to speak louder, the sound quality was still very bad so it didn’t help much. Apparently this is the problem for the iPad app because when I used my iPhone it didn’t have this problem.
I am one of Jehovahs Witnesses and thanks to Zoom we have not missed even one of our spiritual meetings. We began meeting on zoom in March of 2020 as the governments began to shut down the world. I see other religions in the news who have not met since Covid started and can’t help but wonder why they don’t get a zoom account. Zoom is the number one best thing to come out of this pandemic. Thank you so very much.
Zoom is not perfect but comes close. I am sure it will save many lives just because the bedridden can know of the love and support from family and friends. This, regardless of Covid restrictions, etc.
Also grateful that zoom is not encumbered with the censorious crap users must endure on Facebook and other platforms.

I just love Zoom and am thankful and grateful for this service. Because of your service to the world, I have stayed connected to family and friends during Coronas. I have also met people on the whole other side of the country thru Zoom. I have made new friends because of your service. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Continued blessings ✨✨✨
Zoom permits people to conduct meetings or casual conversations without having vast technical experience. Literally, in one or two sessions the leader has sufficient experience to master invitations, signing in and directing traffic for a group of 15 to 20 people. Zoom has tutorials for almost any FAQs. Try it and you will like it!
Zoom is a really good app it help you with school or jobs interviews it’s a really good app for people when COVID-19 started I don’t think I can do it but then I found the app soon end it help me understand everything in class and when I got sick I can just use it it’s really good app download it now😁😉
