I appreciate this lightweight app. I’ve been able to use both the free and paid versions pretty effectively with individuals and groups with minimal issues. Integration with Google Suite has been smooth. Definitely better than Google Meet which is often glitchy and out of sync, causing me to ask people to repeat themselves. And its so easy to stream to Facebook and YouTube.
The only annoying thing I haven’t figured out is how to give people the right link so they can join a meeting with one click. The link produced by zoom prompts the user to download zoom, even when its already installed. I hope this becomes clearer within the invitation in the future. Other than that, just need to write down the meeting ID & passcode and I’m in.
A note about EDI: Zoom needs to think about being more inclusive. I recently facilitated a meeting that was translated into 7 different languages, which were not included in Zoom’s options. Languages such as Arabic, Burmese, Karen, Swahili and others. Zoom should consider a write-in option, or some other flexible option so that other communities (that are not Chinese, German, French, etc.) can also use the interpretation feature. Imagine telling someone that, in order to hear the translation to Arabic, they should select “Chinese.” That’s so confusing!
To begin, zoom has certainly proved to be helpful for online meetings during the pandemic. That is the reason of the second star. Now that I’m finished giving pity, allow me to digress. The app is chiefly annoying to operate. You’re limited in control preferences which has proven to be exceedingly annoying for meetings. Today, the computer application has caused quite the kerfuffle for me, and is what led me to write this petty review. I was unable to answer a question because zoom glitched and my window simply disappeared and was unable to be located by switching tabs. For this, Zoom, I take 3 starts away, because you have produced a sight annoyance in my mundane work day.
I’ve just recently updated my iphone to IOS 14.
Whenever I try and go into a Zoom call, a message that says “Unable to access camera/microphone. Allow Zoom to access your camera from device menu: “Settings” - “Privacy” - “Camera/Microphone” . “
Whenever I head to privacy and choose either the microphone or camera option, apps that ask for either should appear, however, the Zoom app does not appear at all. I am able to use the Zoom app but simply am unable to use the microphone or camera.
Could this get fixed where Zoom properly asks for permission in usage of camera/microphone?
If so, that would be a great help! Zoom app is a full star rating!
I like the app and stuff u can chat with friends and do school but every time I chat with friends, do school, or have meetings it always lags, glitches, and all that. Also the free meetings can only be 40 minutes otherwise you have to pay, or restart ur meeting and have everyone rejoin. I like it though because like I said you can talk to people. Although I like this app I would say Face Time is better. It lags a lot less, like the quality is way better.
I love Zoom. I use it for everything in my virtual classroom, but with the new iOS 14 update, it is not working. I cannot share my screen anymore on my iPad for more than 30 seconds, which is a huge inconvenience. Otherwise, this would be a 5/5 star application as it has not been this complicated before, but the developers should have known this was coming out and prepared as screen sharing is a teacher’s favorite feature to use on Zoom.
Hey babes, I hate this app and honestly I think discord would be a lot easier to use and would most likely make students more excited to do class since it’s on a app that most teens/kids know about and use on the daily. You would also be able to do a lot more. Like for example the multiple chat rooms you can have at a time would be great for group projects! Haha any way bye gorgeous have a nice day/night.
I have classes on zoom that I go to from a link given to me by my professor. The app has worked fine in the pass but recently when I click on the link I get sent to a webpage telling me I need to download the app even thought it is already downloaded. When I try to type in the meeting ID it ask me to enter a meeting passcode which I don’t have since I normally use the link.
I HAVE to use this app since it’s mandated in our workplace but given the choice I would use literally ANY other options on the market. So many bugs have popped up in the last few months and NOTHING has been done to fix them. The app in general is so slow and if someone shares screen, the app crashes faster than a falling meteorite.
When I have signed in with my google account, I will re-open the app and the loading icon will keep spinning forever and not allow me to click on anything. I uninstall and then reinstall but it’s super annoying especially since it then deletes all meeting id’s stored on the device. It works fine on my computer or iPhone.
I tried to get help signing into meeting and asked for help. When I listed my problem as can’t sign in because I am a novice at IT the comment made back to me was they couldn’t help me if I used that kind of language. Ultimately I was able to join the meeting but not with help from anyone or bot at Zoom support.
