Zoom taliaReview - I really like zoom
So as you know well you know my title so I think zoom is a great app because you can do amazing backgrounds you can turn your camera all kinds of ways on your phone and on your computer and you can interact with so many people like you can put like 1000 people in your maiden well maybe not 1000 but like a lot and on your iPad you can do you like find emoji‘s like funny faces and exploding heads and thumbs up and thumbs down raising hands yeah you can do like faces on your iPad and on your computer and phone you can do backgrounds and turn your camera around and not like I meant like not really turn your camera around I mean like rotate it like upside down right side up left right 90° and on your phone you can do phone background same on your computer and on your computer you can rotate your camera as I said in on your iPad you can’t really do that but you can still do faces and you can share your screen it’s pretty cool and if you’re on a computer computer the person who like everyone can see you if you were like in a different app or something they won’t really see which app you’re in but they can still see your video it’s pretty cool you can turn your video off you can turn your mic off I like it.
Enophillip - Zoom is awesome
Zoom has been amazing and so beneficial during these unprecedented times, with COVID pandemic.
Normally, as Jehovah’s Witnesses, all around the world, each week we would have be meeting regularly with our loving brothers and sisters at our Kingdom Halls or place of worship. But, with the used of Zoom, we are able to remain safe and still meet and see one another.
Many of older, infirm or handicapped friends really appreciate Zoom greatly, love that they now see, hear and participate at our meetings. One big reason is that it is very user friendly or simple to use. Even my 92 old father is able to Zoom into his spiritual meetings with his congregation, in totally different state than me. I’m also able to check on and see him more often, from a distance, using this incredible tool.
Thank you so much for helping us all stay safe, by being obedient to our loving God Jehovah, who wants us to be safe and helping comply with the local authorities, to shelter in place while we are still able to enjoy our spiritual associations with one another and continuing to still be taught spiritually.
BoboMcGoo319 - The great app
This app is awesome because I can chat with my friends when ever I want. And you can make someone else host if you don’t want to be host. But the part that I really like is that if you are host you can mute everyone and turn their video off! And you can have a virtual background, you can volunteer to be host, and if the host mutes you, you can unmute yourself. You can also write a message to everyone. And my personal favorite part is that you can see as many people as you want. You can also turn audio on and off when ever you want. But one thing is that sometimes people’s screens freeze or you can’t hear them very well or there voice stutters. Another one of my favorites is that you can change your zoom name. But one thing that confuses me is that the app is called zoom. Why is the app called zoom if the app is for video chatting. Anyways, those two issues certainly don’t stop me from giving this app a 5 ⭐️review. And all because of this app I can chat with my friends every day. So I definitely recommend getting this app!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
dtrewdchejdbdhjdidb - Zoom is awesome
Hi there! I was reading the comments and reviews the other day, and I was so surprised by what everyone was saying. I mean to say is ppl rated zoom by only 1 star when it deserves 1 MILLION stars!!!!!!! I absolutely LOVE this app! Creating a waiting room was a brilliant idea and sharing screen is also brilliant!!! Me and my friends use zoom very often during the pandemic, we often lock the meeting so to those who had unwelcoming guest put a waiting room and lock the meeting. I know everyone has different experiences but I believe zoom is what so ever amazing !!!! Keep it up!! One thing I wanna say is I want to be able to request to the host to be unmuted, like when the host mutes everyone and I would like to say something and be unmuted, I would like to simply press a button that is called ‘request unmute’ and on the host’s screen a something pops up that says I wanna be unmuted. Thank you so much for keeping me entertained and busy and excited. Now I’m hooked onto my friends during coronavirus. Thank you so much!!!!!
Ur #1 fan!!!!
Seattle Day - Updated: Continually needs deleted/reinstalled on iPad Pro
Updated review Sept. 5, 2020: I have figured out a workaround to my problem. This app does not handle “Sign in with Google” well when a corporate account is being used. The workaround is to remember to SIGN OUT of the app before you close it, then the next time the app is opened you go through the two-step sign in process again. The app always asks for permission to sign in with Google, so I’m thinking this is what the app is not handling correctly? Can’t the app be made to remember the prior authorization(s) when opened? -1 star for this inconvenience.
Two stars because it works as hoped when it works. New 2020 iPad Pro 12.9”, bought for use with teaching this fall and Zoom support. App will only work when first installed from App Store and signed into my district account. When a new Zoom meeting stopped and app closed, later opens to spinning wheel on iPad and will not allow joining a new Zoom meeting, etc. App needs deleted and reinstalled from App Store to open again correctly. Will update review if app fixed or iPadOS starts playing nice.
JennyTN13 - Fast & easy
Had an app developer for a different app set up a video call time to ask opinions on a new service coming about one of my medical conditions. I hadn’t even heard of Zoom before, but when FT didn’t work, I quickly downloaded Zoom & it took zero time for us to be able to view each other’s screens, which was more imperative for her, but her being able to share screens with me that were still in development was extremely easy! Once I figured out to unmute her (a default setting, at least in my case), it was so easy to use, I didn’t need a tutorial or anything! It was a last minute, phone hook-up problem that I didn’t take time to read about the app or even see if a tutorial was there (I’m sure there is). So VERY easy to use, point & click & I was able to complete helping them, they being in Singapore & myself in eastern USA! This video chat could possibly be beneficial for millions of people, literally! Thank you, Zoom for making this happen! Would definite recommend this to others!!
reallyawsomegirl - Amzing! Suggestions though
This app is amazing! We use it for school, and it was my Grandma’s Birthday, So that was really cool we could talk to each other during this really hard time. I Have a few suggestions on how to make the app better though, when ever we share screens, my brother tends to draw and scribble all over it, is there a way you can add a “ Disable Drawing” button or something? And also, whenever you exit the app, The zoom meeting is still on, that’s great but you can’t see the person behind the camera, again, my brother takes advantage of this, and mutes himself, and uses the time to play! Could you please make it so, whenever you exit the app, like Disney+, It shows a little box with the video, and you can still see the person. I’m making these suggestion because I don’t want my brother to fail at school, And I’m sure that other people have this problem too, mabye not these exact problems, but mabye similar ones. Thank you in advance, This app is absolutely amazing!
RCAAS - Thank you!
Zoom has been a life saver for me during the stay at home order. Your video platform has allowed me to continue working from home, supporting teachers and students in our transition to remote learning. It has also kept me connected with friends and family. My brother has special needs and my parents are currently his caregivers due to regulations at his supported living home. He has had a very hard time the last several weeks because he just cannot comprehend why we have to stay away from other people right now. He misses his day program, his roommates, his bowling league, and even doctor appointments, not to mention our very large family gatherings. I created a schedule of daily Zoom sessions in a Google document with a recurring meeting Zoom link and shared it with family and friends, who use the document to sign up for times. Since starting the daily chats, he and my parents receive the social and emotional support the so desperately need. So again, I say “THANK YOU!”
LadyDiNana - Love it but Fix it please!!
I love how easy it is to use and its been a lifesaver for families and businesses during these difficult COVID days. However, I just used it on my computer this morning and it was fine. After my call, it said there was an update so I downloaded it and then tried to use it again this afternoon for another meeting and it wouldn’t give the sound!! What happened?! Overall, its truly been a great tool for our social distancing and perhaps it will be used more now that people are used to it. It is very easy to use, even for those who are technologically challenged. I ended up using my iPad for the afternoon meeting but had wanted to use my laptop so I could see everyone and on one page. With the iPad, you have to swipe to see whomever you can’t see from the first page of 9, but it is a little disconcerting because you always see 9 people on a page; not 9 on the first page and then the remaining on the next page, which I would prefer. But again, it does work overall for meetings and is very easy to use.
Jessica SG. - Family Reunion
My cousin had the most wonderful idea! She asked all of our very small family - her mother, her two brothers, their wives and grown children - and her one aunt who happens to be my mother. My mom asked me, my twin sister and our grown children to also be a part of the zoom phone call. All together 11 out of 18 people were able to participate. The others were working. It was so much fun and such a joy to see my cousin Abby, the cousin whose brainstorm it was in the first place. We see each other once a year, if that and we always really love our time together. Today was so special. In this time of isolation from everything we know on a daily basis, our coworkers, our friends, our neighbors, our trainers, our grocers, our cleaners, our housekeepers, our landscapers, the people in our life that we take for granted that we will see every day, it was such a comfort to see our real and actual family.
Thank you to ZOOM for enabling us to make it happen and thanks to my cousin, Abby, who I love so dearly.
servhum - Zoom!
What a wonderful way to be together virtually with so many family members, friends and classmates! I love hearing their voices and seeing their faces and home projects, including knitting, cooking special dishes, gardening and children’s artwork. It’s especially uplifting to enjoy virtual parties and classes together. Thanks so much for enabling everyone with a smart phone, tablet or computer to connect so meaningfully with others during our stay-at-home isolation during this apocalyptic pandemic.
Your amazing free technology is a reminder for me to send more cards to sick friends, to telephone those who do not have smart phones or computers and to thank all those I meet who work in grocery stores and pharmacies to serve our needs basic needs. Also, I feel the need to send emails of appreciation to celebrate our brave medical workers, out diligent and truthful elected officials, scientists and journalists as well as emergency and civil service agencies and companies all working to protect our nation and fight COVID-19 and the economic havoc in its worldwide wake.
maureen Serenity - Grateful to Mid-Nite. New York
The Mid-Nite has helped me so much. Here in Massachusetts, nothing is totally open for Aa meeting. I can’t talk to friends and family. Just my 3 daughters. Thank God for them. Also the treatment center I went to in Delray Beach Florida. Reco. The best thing I ever did. Great support system there and with Mid-Nite. I have severe insomnia. I stay on for most of them all night. I feel very lonely. I live alone and have ptsd. I know I am not supposed to fear. I did my steps. I do meditation and other tools that Teco taught me. Being with you all stops my fear that someone will come in my apartment and attack me. After I am done with your meeting I feel back to safety. I don’t know what I would of done with out you. I have 10 months sober. Thank you so much for continuing your zoom meeting. 🙏🏻🕯🌻. I tell everyone at my zoom meeting at Reco about your meetings Incase at night they need to talk. I highly recommend it for everyone! All ages! I love it and very grateful to all the host, volunteers . Please never STOP! Your great Mid-nite
jhutch12345 - Great App! Would recommend it to anyone.
I have been using this app for a few months now. I’ve been looking at one star reviews, and I noticed some of these may not be the app, but the personal device or internet the person is using. It works on many platforms, so it really doesn’t limit you when it comes to accessibility. The chat you can use during meetings works amazingly well, and the app allows you to privately chat with one individual person. If you’re the host and you don’t want people privately chatting with each other, you can turn that off in the chat so that all messages are sent to everyone. The only thing I personally don’t like is the time limit. Other than that one thing, the app is great if you run a club or just want to chat with friends. Zoom also allows you to have a password set so that random people can’t put random codes in and join the meeting. And if your school uses chrome books, works great on those.
Sew-er - Zoom has been fantastic to “meet in person” during this challenging time
My husband and I lead a weekly Small Group Bible Study in our home. When the stay at home was put in place we did not meet for two weeks and so missed the study, fellowship, and “seeing” everyone! Zoom has been a wonderful way to meet each week!
We are 77 and 81 years old and our group is also made up of Seniors and one lady is blind so many would think we are “too old” to be able to use this type of technology however in spite of the age factor and the fact that we all have different devices, Zoom is very easy to download and to host. Thank you!
I also enjoyed hosting a birthday party for my husband’s 81st! Three of our children, ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren were able to attend thanks to Zoom.
I also like that I can search on my phone for answers when an attendee is having a glitch and can chat the help to them.
Thanks Zoom! Sue Hausmann
Meoweystar - From a student standpoint
Okay, so I had to get zoom because the device I was using died. But overall it’s fine, but for the mobile devices when our teacher shares the screen, we can draw on it and not on the computers! Also it’s glitchy, and the fact is that I have to use it for a while now. I’ve been seeing ppl but one star cuz they want this app to be deleted, but I think it’s good for non school purposes like contacting your friends who have a different phone than u ( ex. Apple and Samsung) can FaceTime. But pls take away the draw button on the mobile version
Update: so I had a meeting and when the teacher unmuted us I was muted and a few others and on her screen we weren’t muted! But try harder but still good app
Edit: so a recommendation is that the host (if they have chat on) can decide of which ppl can use the chat. (I’m just using random names here) like Tobias can use the chat while Patty can’t use it. (Again no disrespect to anyone reading this named patty or Tobias) cuz this one kid kept spamming me and I wished that he wouldn’t be able to use the chat..
Purplxd - While coerced into separation, Zoom Connects
I feel thankful for the Zoom app because of the social and even emotional and spiritual connections it facilitates under the difficult circumstances of Covid19. It is a blessing from heaven to be able to continue connections with others through this group meeting app. Separation will never win over, so should this app ever fail, another will replace it, as I know in my heart that the powers of heaven will prevail in keeping people connected for a Purpose no adverse circumstance can overtake, so we can take courage and comfort in that assurance. I believe this app was created as a preparatory premonition to which adversity we have been subjected. I acknowledge God’s hand in all things and hope others will consider it, too, as that will open the windows of heaven, allowing the talents about us to be used for good, such as this inspired app. Never underestimate the power of little things (choices), as there are no little consequences.
Renata Reindeer - Awesome...but, it has some disadvantages...
It is a very useful app for online classes and work from home. I use it for virtual school since were all in quarantine and I like the idea that there’s a host and the host can control everyone (it is a very useful thing for the teachers). I also like the virtual backgrounds ,the raising hands and all the little things you can use while your in a meeting. I also use it to make group chats with my friends and its really fun! I really recommend this app...but, there are some disadvantages. Sometimes it lags horribly and no one can understand anything the person who is talking saying. There is also a lot of background noise if the person who is talking has a lot going on at home. I’ve also heard a lot of people say that it steals your personal information and strangers can get into a meeting. It hasn’t happened to me so I can’t prove it right or wrong.
I still recommend this app to anyone who would like doing group chats with friends or have meetings about work at home! :D
gMuM5 - Not informed of “upcoming” upgrade requirement
I am a paid, licensed Zoom user and get on Zoom daily. It has been very helpful in staying connected through Zoom meetings. This morning, however, when I tried to join a meeting, my attendees couldn’t hear me. After several attempts to solve the problem, I got a message from the coordinator who helps us with problems. He explained that all groups were having problems, and he had found out about the upgrade. I searched on Zoom on my laptop and happened to find the upgrade link in Support. My laptop should now work, although all of our attendees have left the meeting. Hopefully tomorrow I can test the upgrade.
Now I have been trying to find the same download link on my iPhone Zoom app, but there is no Support button that I can find anywhere. When I was in Support on my laptop, I read that this upgrade needs to be complete by May 30. I hope that I can find the upgrade for phones so that I can help my attendees to complete this upgrade, which I think they may also need to do.
JinqiaoJude - Awesome 100 person chat app!!!
Quarantine has been made easier by Zoom group chatting and meetings. I’ve been able to work, keep in touch with family and friends, take my guitar lessons, keep up with my children’s tutors, go to church, catch up with everyone in the choir and sing for mass recorded through zoom. Thank you Zoom. Just a note though...please make sure you work really hard to fix any “hacking” that seems to happen with systems such as this...because if you make Zoom extremely secure then I know Zoom could very well replace Skype—which is awful now by the way—but you have to make security your number one thing on your list okay?...I’m sure you are, but please don’t end up like what Facebook has gone through and is going through. Good on you though for collaborating with your genius teams and creating an App that has truly helped during Covid-19 and bringing us all together. Way to go Zoom!
UMAppleMan - So far, so good...
The only thing that really puzzle's me, is that I only use Apple products, so on my iPhone, iPad, and iMac, I expect this app to want to use my Address book which is filled with all my friends and contacts. I do not use Facebook, or Google, or anything else to store my Contacts. Seems to me they need to consult with Apple Support on how to do that, but it has not happened yet.
Please fix adding Contacts so that I can use my devices as they need to be used. As it is right now, I cannot add contacts from the services they asking me to use. I did forget, I am an iOS, iPadOS, and MacOS user, not Google or Microsoft, or anything else.
There are no In App Purchases for what you call Pro accounts. We only use this for church services and would need 70 minutes most of the time. Make it possible to upgrade with In App Purchase, or at the very least allow the purchase of minutes for what we need. Have tried to find out how to upgrade, but the app doesn’t allow it.
Gracie Mammy - Love this app!
Zoom is the perfect way to communicate with friends and family. They have a chat feature so you can talk to your family. You can also video call them and see how they are doing. If you don’t feel like getting on video, you can call them using Zoom Phone or turn off the video option on a video call! With the cool features of virtual backgrounds, whiteboards, and more, Zoom has allowed my friends and family to meet up during quarantine while staying safe from a distance. It is also great for professional work environments. Zoom has allowed so many businesses over the past couple months to meet up with a non glitch platform to talk about their business issues. I would definitely recommend getting this app. It will change your life forever! If there was a ten star option, I would choose it. I don’t have a single complaint. Thank you Zoom!!!!
Zooma Zoom Zoom - Phone number and password are entered on different screens😐
I wasn’t able to sign in from the link I received via email. I downloaded this App and then requested the phone number and password from the host. After you enter the phone number, the next screen that will generate is where the password is required. I felt Leary about hitting the next button from the phone number screen, because so many Apps out there, kick you out or send you to an error screen with one little misstep. If Zoom where to add that the password will be entered on the next page, then I would give a four star rating. For me Five stars would be a perfect easy use of the App. Very few Apps out there are five stars. Users seem to give five stars without really thinking about what a review is about. It’s about the next person who is doing something that is important to them. The same goes for one star reviews. Very few Apps out there are one star. One little aspect that someone doesn’t like while using an App, shouldn’t automatically be one star.
JaiVOSB - Very decent overall
Certain Snags with the app and glitches, and sound problems, and if not great access to internet it does Not work well. Then many different things to learn in order to properly view meetings. It’s just so much stuff at first, but then since I’m only viewing meetings it is easier to navigate with just the most basic settings. Our church has moved to zoom Sunday meetings for immune compromised members and those who simply want to stay safe from this pandemic. Just using the link provided, clicking on it, and choosing the right options for that meeting, (like video or sound on or off that time.) That’s very simple for me. The church had technical difficulties for the first month or two but now it’s like clockwork. I greatly appreciate this app because I am able to participate in church more frequently now and if not able to go to the physical building I can view from wherever I am located. It’s been a blessing during these difficult times.
wife’s tech support - Works well
I have been using it for a few years and it has always worked well. screen sharing, drawing on shared screen, audio only vs audio and video, etc all work well. The only thing I wish it does better is power consumption of Bluetooth earpieces like AirPods. Usually I can go for 4-5 hours on my AirPods when listening but if I am on zoom (or google hangout) even if I am on mute the whole time I drain the battery after about and a half. You would think the app can be a bit smarter about being on mute and switch to the listening-only mode and turnoff microphone. I understand the microphone can be draining the battery and it may cause temporary interruption or delay when switching mode but I think if you make it an option for the user then many of them such as myself would gladly accept this trade off for not having to replace our Bluetooth earpiece 1.5 hours into our conference call.
Eddie Corbo - Horrible Audio... Horrible
I’m blown away at how many people say they think the audio is good. Technically, the audio is crap. If you look it up it is one-third the quality of a normal mp3. That is literally the same quality as a payphone. On top of that, they add effects to remove the background noise. This actually makes your voice sound worse, not better. By removing any noise, it also removes parts of your voice that make it sound clear. In fact, the only real time you want to remove background noise is when there’s lots of noise happening in the background. Like at a baseball game, or a crowded street. But if you’re having a conference in those environments, you shouldn’t be in a conference. Instead, Zoom places all the attention on that possible situation, killing the clarity for the situations where most people use Zoom: In a quiet office.
Zoom. Please, please, please improve the audio quality. You advertise HD Voice, but the quality is abhorrent and unlistenable. You are doing your customers a disservice.
Otherwise, it’s a great app.
Thunderguy77 - Administrator has too much power, and chat could use update 👍
I love this app, but I feel like the administrator has too much power. I would love it if you would improve the terms of service and add something to make the other users aware when the administrator is doing something like recording you. Another issue I would like to address is the audio problem. High quality audio is very important in something like a meeting, especially if you’re showing a video or doing other things. But I feel like the audio is not really as good as it can be. Device interference sometimes causes loud noises, but that’s not really your fault. But I do feel like there’s weird noises in the back, and I think it’s the app trying to block out other noise. If you could remove that, or add a switch to turn it on or off, that would be absolutely amazing! Otherwise, the app is very good! Thank you for providing this app for the world, espiecially during these tough times. 😄
tieerob - A disaster
I had to use this app for a job interview last week, and it did not work well. I had set everything up in advance, practicing with my iPad, my MacBook and my iPhone, just to be safe. The 20 minute call was supposed to be at 1:10, so I pressed the connect button at 1:09 and got a screen that said “launching”. Three minutes later it still said launching “. So I disconnected and tried again - and get “launching”. Now I’m five minutes late for the 20 minute interview. So I switch to my iPhone which makes the connection instantly, but I only see video for the first few seconds of the call, and the audio is only at the minimum level with no option to make it louder. The black screen kept switching back and forth to one with a green icon of a telephone, still with very minimal sound. So I spent the last 12 minutes of what was supposed to be a 20 minute interview across the country with no video and the need to keep repeating questions back to the search committee because I couldn’t hear them.
I may not have gotten this job anyway, but using the Zoom app certainly eliminated any possibility of me being considered for the job.
chosenvessel7 - Business owner Tonja Lee-Jordan
Zoom is a great opportunity to hold business meetings and share new opportunities for every individual. The world has experienced major changes which requires major changes in our every day livings. I have the opportunity to show presentations regarding ownership and part time income for people looking for a change in income, dreams, provision for choices and a road map designed just for them. Every situation pertaining to life is different for everyone but those things which are essential can be provided by changing your mindset and work ethics. Zoom gives me the opportunity to be in more than one place at the same time connecting with winners such as myself. I would love to share with you the opportunity that changed my life with zoom and a made up mind for any challenges I am having to face. Please join me at changing people lives on daily basis.
blooperbeeps - Great App! One Suggestion Though...
My family and I have used this app for several months and it has covered most of our needs. It is great to be able to see and share with our extended family and friends during these times where physical contact may be limited. For that alone, it’s worth rating this app 5 stars. Still, there is one definite improvement that I think should be made.
Please implement arrows or scrolling buttons in the Gallery View of Zoom video conferences. As an iPad Pro user, I am unable to “scroll” through the Gallery View using my Bluetooth keyboard and Mouse setup without having to manually touch and swipe the screen directly. Adding a arrow or other type of button would allow for easy viewing or scrolling of members of the video conference without disrupting the convenience of using the iOS trackpad/mouse support.
Chuckitcheap - Life saver
Zoom was relatively new when our organization began using it and it quickly became our saving grace. We are a pier based recovery group that depends upon its members experience, strength, and hope so that newer members can learn from the older members what it takes, or how they learned to use the program to get through the day to day process of being in our membership.
This platform has helped us have face to face interaction whilst maintaining social distancing. Through your platform we have maintained an atmosphere of recovery and continue to help those struggling with changing patterns of their lives to a new way of thinking and change of that magnitude is all but impossible on our own. Your platform helped so that even those geographically isolated could find like minded people willing to help.
Thank you can never adequately covey my gratitude 🙏 but thank you ‼️
Teacher123231 - ZOOM: the best so far
I have just began using Zoom for cloud meetings. Compared to Skype, I find Zoom much more stable and of higher quality video presentation. Larger meetings must be organized in a better way as this is more a problem of group organization as opposed to the actual Zoom software. A bigger group must be organized in order to functionally use the zoom platform without problems. I really like the whiteboard and screen sharing aspect as it is simple, intuitive and easy to use especially with my iPad Pro Apple Pencil. There is always room for improvement, but as for now, Zoom is the best. With Skype, I have complaints of poor screen quality even with gigablast internet (300-1 gb/sec download speeds). I just wanted the truth to be presented about the online software. Zoom is presently the best and deserves more credit than a single star! It works well!
newshound66 - Great app - still the best videoconferencing app despite earlier security issues
I’ve used Zoom, Teams and Webex extensively since March 2020, and Zoom is by far the best videoconferencing app in my experience. While its 40-minute time limit for free accounts is a major disincentive to setting up meetings on Zoom without a paid subscription, it otherwise works great, with minimal video and audio lag. Video and audio quality and battery life are much better than on Webex, and all participants can be seen when you swipe in grid view. A 3-hour Webex meeting drains my iPad Pro 12.9 4th edition to around 40%, while I would still have around 60% battery life after a Zoom meeting of the same length.
The Teams iPad app still has the pesky limitation of only seeing the videos of 3 other participants, along with yours. Teams, however, still offers unlimited meeting times for free accounts, while Webex has reduced free meetings to 50 minutes at a time.
The only limitation I’ve experienced with the Zoom app is that a file shared through chat was not accessible through the iPad app when it could be accessed through the desktop app.
I also wish that all of these videoconferencing apps would continue to transmit your video when you open other apps. This doesn’t happen when using the desktop versions.
LadyAnderson2008!! - Not happy
I was adapting during Quarantine which didn’t hit NW FL UNTIL N States came in spring. I’m in a CAT 5 Hurricane area, new tech everywhere, legal & insurance. Setting up new devices & it’s been a nightmare. I began with church & that was great. Life happened, I came back to it for court appearance for divorce and the updates made it impossible. NO customer support. It’s anxiety horrors. Now I see a fee option. Requested a business email address. Basically my account is lost. I can’t access previous on & can’t create new.
Because of this and yes WIFI I was literally on the telephone while my attorney, ex to be, judge & his attorney(s) across the country. This is our lives thrown into Zoom.
Not all are in school or business but it’s definitely slowing down my process to get there. I’ve wasted so much time and no help. No support. Sent email. NOT HAPPY- I wish we’d stuck with Skype. Again, also Cat 5 Hurricane and NW FL was NOT a Covid hot spot until very recently. Hope everyone enjoyed their beach vacations after zooming all winter. Now I’m stuck in the house because of it.
I feel at 🏡the same ⌚️ - Amazing
I personally love this app. I understand and have the occasional glitch but it’s better than any other platform my teachers tried using. I do have one complaint being that now whenever one person is in the waiting room it duplicates them and in order for them to come u need to let both in. It’s annoying and the person being duplicated can see the other one of themselves but the camera and mic is turned off. Overall I am happy with the app and just started experiencing issues. I guess that’s what updates are for. Everyone in the reviews talking badly about zoom doesn’t understand that they have millions of people using their platform as once. And sometimes ur or other ppls wifi is bad which causes a glitch. I really want to say thank you to zoom for making online learning easier than I thought it would be.
song ratet - Useful
I was on a friend get together Zoom call as soon as I downloaded the app and I found it being pretty awesome!! There is this whiteboard effect where everyone can draw/write at the same time. We shared thoughts, drawings, and funny sketches with this, the zoom app is mainly purposed to bring workers in companies back together to discuss matters, but I found it a pleasant group chat with my friends. Everyone says people sometimes judges things by first impressions and right now, I like this app- but that may change (my review might change) but I love it so far. I recommend this app for people in businesses and people who just want to hang with their friends! :-D
- a Zoom user with an odd name : “song rater”. Very odd name:-D
If you have survived my long review, and read through my thoughts and feelings toward this app, I appreciate your patience, thank you for reading
Susan Renée Sims - Great way to stay connected.
Zoom is so easy, even my 80+ year old relatives can use it with very little to no setup support. I have been using it for school since July, and have loved how it transformed my classroom experience. I have instant access to recorded lectures and super team project success. Thank you Zoom, and thank you for taking our safety and security so seriously. I have access to password protection for my meetings, and can opt out of sharing information in the account settings. I love how Zoom transparently responded to the security concerns recently. I can appreciate that the security settings were always available to me from the first use, but I had the option to keep them off and make my first several Zoom meetings easy and not advanced for me and my participants. Look forward to Zooming some music with friends with and without iPhones.
Mississippi girl Jenny - A whole new world
Pre-pandemic, when someone said the word zoom I never would have thought it meant a video platform, but here we are August 2020 and five months into the pandemic. I use zoom all week. I have meetings, my volunteer work is done virtually now and sometimes we have virtual parties on zoom. I do miss being with my friends and family, but I’m thankful we live in a time when even when we can’t be together, we’re together. The app does have some hiccups here and there, but it’s always up and running very quickly. I appreciate all the features; breakout rooms, chat, virtual backgrounds, raising the hand feature. Video off and mute with just a click. I know a lot of older ones who use this app and was able to get a hold of it rather quickly. Thank you for creating such an awesome app. Where we can stay connected.
Mickey T "Coach Tum" - Business Zooming
Without a doubt over the past 6 months ZOOM has enhanced my ability to make money & reach more people than I could in a year! It has also taught my many business partners to utilize the ZOOM video & calls to duplicate our production, profitability, & most of all delivered our company message regarding our products with a genuine & sincere care element by being able to see our enthusiasm by emphasizing our overall company objectives & goals by the process of looking into our eyes & faces to show our personalization about how much we care about their success as well! My company will ALWAYS use ZOOM every opportunity we are presented to pull our people, products, & passion together in the drive to everyone’s success!! I have learned during this COVID pandemic, that we do not have to settle for less productive, but rather increase our company’s objectives & be more proficient in doing so b/c of ZOOM!!
Breesy s - Wow!
Ok so I heard of this app right when quarintine started, and I really enjoy it! There’s so many features and great for online learning! The reason people say it’s glitchy is because certain places in a house have a worse connection then others, but lucky for me the strongest WiFi spot in my house is my bed 😏. It’s great for book clubs, dance meetings, choir, or just chilling with friends, which those are all the things I do.. I LIKE THE VEIW 😎. Excuse my memey soul, but there is 1 issue with this app, the screen share. It is always VERY glitch and when I tried to watch “Frozen II” with my bffs, nobody could see and sometimes hear because of how glitch it was! If you would fix that feature it would be fabulous and I believe you will probably get ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from everyone! Fix the glitches, and you got the best video chatting app!
chrisdlg - It’s ok
Now I would not say this is the best app in the world 🌎 but it is really useful specially for these Times like for the first time I could talk to my friend that’s in Dallas but there are some things I don’t really like about this app like every time I put on a background the background goes over me and you have to have an account to call someone or have a profile and to me it’s kind of frustrating but I do you like that you can share your content but I would also like it if they were games that you can play and there is also a limit which is also kind of frustrating you can only talk for 40 minutes if you want to talk for more you half to pay for which is really expensive and I’m pretty sure nobody wants to spend money on like that so those are some things that I would fix I hope someone responds but overall this is a really good app and it’s really useful
IkeinLA - A Vital App, But Buggy on My iPad Air 2
I have been using Zoom since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to reach out to friends and family and to participate in meetings with as many as 100 other participants, and for the most part, it works remarkably well. And with the latest updates, the security measures like the waiting room and the lock functionalities are a practical tools for dealing with “Zoom Bombers”.
I have rated it 3 stars, however, for the persistent bug that locks up the app when I co-host; within 10-15 minutes, my screen is stuck with the participants tab open, and I cannot switch views from active speak to gallery (and vice versa), I can’t scroll through scenes in gallery view, and lately, even the chat screen becomes inaccessible. This limits my moderator/cohosting abilities, as I can only admit people, boot them blindly (as I can’t see their screens), I can’t unmute myself, I can’t even leave the meeting without force-quitting, and as I said before, today I couldn’t even chat with other participants. This isn’t a settings issue, it’s the app as it runs on my iPad. The only fix is to force-quit and then log back in, which is disruptive and compromises the meetings security as I disappear for a few moments while unwelcome guests harass our bonafide participants.
When I’m not cohosting, I don’t have ANY of these problems.
To the developers: This is a wonderful product, but this bug is nuts.
emmynoe - Not impressed
It seems like it’s one thing after another with this program. If I could give I zero stars I would. I gave it a shot because a lot of people were recommending Zoom for video conferencing over similar alternative video messaging apps. The sound quality, video quality and overall connection is poor, has a longer lag time than other apps and there’s all sorts of confusion on how to join a meeting. Seems like it should be straight forward but it’s not. Also, when sending a meeting invite to someone, it sends an email from my personal device email address rather than the work email address which I registered with the app. How does that make sense? When I downloaded the app to my phone as a back up, nothing would sync across my devices or accounts so I would have to send new invites to the same people for the same meeting, therefore causing MORE confusion. I am going to encourage the people I'm meeting with to use a different service, and can’t wait to go back to in-person meetings so that I can be rid of this frustrating app.
NikNak224 - Not Bad but Could Be Way Better
I’ve been using Zoom for about two months now due to COVID-19. We haven’t had any Zoom “bombs” or major hiccups. But I do have a few things I would like to share that they could improve:
1. In the webinars add-on, it would be great if there was a way to generate the attendee report before the actual webinar. There’s info that’s collected during registration that is needed before the webinar so it’s a real hassle to go through each registrant one by one.
2. Also in the webinars add on, we should be able to edit the email templates.
3. Would love to use the virtual back drop but I don’t have a green screen. Who has a green screen?! Why create a feature for something most people don’t have. Like many people, I’m using my work computer for video conferences so some part of the feature should at least match with basic system requirements. Kind of annoying but I guess you get what you pay for 🤷🏾♀️
Carliball - Helpful but Laggy
Zoom is a great app. It helps connect people that cannot connect otherwise. However, when there is enough people, it starts to become very laggy. Audio and Visual should be synced but that isn’t assured when there is 15+ people. Also, when you are on different devices, the preferences and toggles are in different spots, making it confusing for people who may not understand how to control the entire app. Everything should be in the same spot, no matter what kind of device you have. I’m glad Zoom works in most places as well, but it doesn’t already work everywhere, which also makes it lag, a lot. I do not recommend using it for huge meetings of 20+ people or else it may not work. But it is the optimum choice if you need it for holding classroom meetings because the teacher can be what is called the host, and students have some freedom with fun things, but not enough to disrupt the conversation.
Llamacay25 - Brings us together
I give this app a five star rating because with the coronavirus going on I think that it’s really helped me in my class get together and know each other more and I just think of anyone else who uses this app bring everyone together and it will just make everyone just feel like there are always together on this very good zoom call. I also think that it is a very good app because I seen multiple people using it at this time divorces seen celebrities use this app and I just think that that you’re there will just make everyone want to get it because celebrities are using it I just think that it’s a really good app and I think they also brings us together even more than talking to each other in person. I highly recommend this app and don’t be afraid to download it. #FantasticApp
Crazy_Gamer_Girl - Okay, but not as good for iPad.
This video meeting app works well enough. The virtual backgrounds are nice, and the microphones and videos usually work the way they’re supposed to. On an iPad, though, you have fewer options then on a computer. The main accessories that Zoom does not allow on an iPad are remote control, (you can move the mouse that appears on-screen, but you can’t do anything else, not click, not select, nothing), whiteboard, (it shows up and you get colors, but not nearly as many as you get on a computer. I would love it if you added a color wheel), and breakout rooms (You can go into them but they don’t show up in the menu). I always use my iPad for Zoom meetings, but I feel I am not getting the full expirence. Also, when you do Zoom online, you can have moving virtual backgrounds, but those don’t exist on the app. If you could change all this, this rating would go up to five stars faster then you can say “Zoom”. But for now, you get two.
my zoom nickname - Very good but would change some things
I think that this app is very helpful for while we’re in e learning. Our class uses it for check ins and stuff for e learning. And me and my mom use it to celebrate birthday parties for her friends. This is my first time using it, and I think that it is very good. I like how you can change your name and how you can make backgrounds. I also like how you can create your own background. But I don’t like how when someone is screen sharing, you can draw on their screen. One time my teacher was screen sharing to show us the assignment and one of our classmates was drawing on the screen and my teacher had to keep stopping to tell whoever’s doing it to stop. I also think that adding a password should be optional. I used to copy and paste the meeting ID but then there was a password and I can’t copy both. That makes me give it 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
friedlawyer - Easy and Productive Tool
It’s so easy to log on and the monthly fees are reasonable. I have learned to use the screen sharing tools by watching you tube videos. In the current climate it is one of the best ways to keep in touch, hold business meetings, court hearings, social gatherings, etc. Nothing beats actual human contact but during a pandemic this is a great alternative. Cons: a bit exhausting to use ANY video platform—you lose a lot having virtual conversations such as “micro-expressions” and subtle visual clues. Also some of your colleagues may be technologically challenged and any video platform has a learning curve. Make sure to log on in advance of any meeting and test your microphone and webcam. Don’t blame Zoom if you can’t get it together! And don’t host a meeting until you know what you’re doing! Friendly advice. Good luck.
Claire Peterson - 5 stars!
Zoom is a really helpful and useful app. I love how your able to have a virtual background if you want to. Yes I do know that we have FaceTime, google duo and house party but this app has more high quality and your able to see your friends/family/etc. and I know I already mentioned this but the virtual backgrounds are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Now just one small problem about the virtual backgrounds , why do we need a green screen or a certain type of device? Because one time on a zoom meeting I tried to use a virtual background BUT it covers half of my face and barely anyone was able to see me. Anyways I LOVE zoom🤩it’s a great app that I’ve been using since FEBRUARY and it comes even more useful during quarantine. Due to the corona pandemic we aren’t able to see loved ones in person so in conclusion this app is a must😍
1973RAH - Good but could be better
I have been using zoom with many people who are older and have been very pleased with the way it handles multiple conversations. The user interface is pretty easy for non-technical people. Certainly has been a tremendous boon during this pandemic. One of the problems I have with it is that the user interface is different depending on what platform you have. For example, the icon for speaker view is in very different locations depending on whether you’re on an iPad, and iPhone, Mac, or a PC. When you have relatively non-technical people on all these different platforms trying to explain to each other how to activate speaker view or share screen, it’s very difficult because the location for what you want is so different from device to device. On the whole, though, you get a lot of capability for a reasonable price.

sossles - Great, reliable app with excellent UI
I work for a large global company and we use zoom every day on our desktop computers but I was pessimistic about its ability to translate to a workable mobile app. Having used the app now for more than a dozen on-the-go meetings, I have to say it has easily exceeded all expectations. I love that it’s UI is so easy and intuitive for all the most common tasks I need to perform. I can join with my corporate account, pinch to zoom into even the smallest detail on someone’s shared desktop screen, I have complete control over audio and video, it has a driving mode I can easily mute/unmute in the car and then switch back to screen viewing when I arrive, chat between participants is easily done and today someone seamlessly pushed us into a breakout room to continue our discussion. The folks I’m meeting with are on desktops and they can’t tell I’m on mobile. Just brilliant. Great work development team and PMs. This app is a pleasure to use.
5678cats - Amazing but one problem
Ever since the virus started we have been using zoom for school and next term we will be using it every day and since everyone talks at once while we all join onto zoom to fix that issue our teacher tells us to mute ourselves and he asked one person at a time to answer a question and this keeps everything nice and quiet. Just one problem I was trying to get onto the zoom meeting one day and just saying I never got on but I was trying to get onto it and I couldn’t it kept on saying something like internal meeting only and I had to use a different account to log in but that still didn’t work so I ended up not being able to join the meeting it’s was also saying stuff like update to full version with more then 40minutes and I’m fixing the issues now.
Damn You tecnology - Zoom isn’t really great with iPads
While the basic Zoom subscription DOES work on an iPad, it obviously wasn’t designed for them, and is clunky and awkward to use whilst online and on camera. The interactive meeting settings such as the Chat box are situated at the top of the iPad screen, whereas they are at the bottom of PC screens. Most iPads do not have the capacity to operate with a mouse. That means that a user has to reach up across the screen to click on setting options mid-meeting. Others in the meeting see this huge hand reaching for them. 3D is great in a cinema, not so in a business meeting. If you only have the basic subscription, you can’t contact the Zoom tech team for assistance, and have to rely on their online help topics, which are pretty unhelpful for iPad users. I haven bothered looking into whether a iPhone is any better, because quite frankly, who wants to have a zoom meeting on a tiny screen. Zoom has been fantastic during the COVID-19 lockdowns, but I whish they would hurry up and make it a better experience for Apple users.
rozietta - Short overview.
I am a child of post 2nd WW so I've grown up with a time in history with THE most radical changes in life. From our industrial to health to social norms and yes even faiths.
It has been a huge ask of the elderly to put an iPad under their nose and say "Just put your password in and you can join a scheduled meeting with your friends........
??Really? My friends are miles away and some are overseas...how so? ZOOM. SO some patient person explains ....and if you go to x and enter a number before you then put in your ID and away you go....
Yes even a 75 year old lady with compromised sight can sit happily in front of her iPad and ZOOM anyone anywhere. No hiccups no problems and all the while giving an opportunity to unite friends family and the like.
It's EASY it's EFFICIENT and it's the best thing since sliced bread!!!
spiritual water - Keeping connected
I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and I use zoom to allow me to be interactive at our twice weekly meetings. Also, due to the social distancing requirements we are not going door to door. Instead we contact our neighbours by telephone and by letters. To help us do this me meet in the morning over zoom. So zoom has helped us to still continue with our ministry and receive encouragement from our spiritual brothers and sisters. As a result I have only felt the pain of being isolated to a small degree - it will be nice though when we eventually meet up with our spiritual family in person. Thanks for this avenue allowing for us to communicate directly during this crisis. Warm regards Patricia.
Sydneyanash - What a great app!!!
In a time when the whole country is in lockdown and my friend was sitting “Shivah” in mourning for the passing of his dear mom ob”m, not having the chance to mourn with friends and family, say the “Kaddish” the traditional Jewish mourners prayer and prayiywith a qouram of at least 10, which besides endangerinythe lives of others is against the law of the country, ZOOM provided a great amount of comfort allowing friends from far and near, even from across the sea, to pray together, mourn together and comfort each other! And all for free!
Thank you ZOOM! You guys will surely be blessed by Almighty G-D, for what you have done for us and countless others around the globe!!!
The quality of video and audio was EXCELLENT! Thank you!
Daniel Kaye, NSW, Australia
QuackQuackQuackQuack - Audio is bad
When connected to a meeting they could not hear me from their end on their laptops- the device I was using at the time was iPhone 8. It’s definitely not my device at fault because I tried immediately calling through my other calling apps such as Viber, Facebook messenger and what’s app and my voice was coming out clear as day on their end. I’ve also gone through all my phone settings/microphone settings/Zoom settings etc and there’s no issue there.
Second time I tried zoom with a friend to see if it works to another phone and they could hear me but it was barely audible even with their volume maxed out.
Please fix this issue ASAP because many of us are in for at least 6 months of working from home and zoom meetings with this coronavirus situation and it’s going to be very painful if I can’t get this to work.
Mungadog - Auzzies Luv Zoom
Excellent medium and is full of features. I think many companies are realising they have been wasting money sending staff interstate for one meeting costing hundreds of dollars. They are better spending money on setting up their staff/teams via zoom where all calls can be face to face. Makes sense.
Telstra in Australia stopped their staff and executives travelling interstate for meetings some 15 years ago and encouraged face to face virtual meetings through their own video conferencing, saving hundreds of thousands (travel and accomodation costs). I am sure other companies have seen the advantages in video conferencing some years ago as well.
--000--000-- - Functional but many half baked features
All in all it does the job but so many things feel half done.
After creating an account and adding users you would expect you can then interact with those users.
Logging into the zoom app and choosing contacts doesn’t show a single user as a contact. If you want to see your users as contacts you need to manually enter each of them and each user has to do the same for themselves.
Create a scheduled meeting and there is no ability to select a bunch of users from your account as invitees. You need to copy a link go out to an email package and email them a link. This also means that they don’t see a scheduled meeting pop up under their own zoom login unless they created it, they need to rely on an external email invite.
Sure you can send an invite to a user during a meeting but it’s a bit late after the meeting has started.
I would have thought these were basics. As I said the system works but the workflows really need some attention so there isn’t so much wasted time jumping in and out of the system which should only be necessary when interacting with non zoom users
pup-of-love - An amazing teaching tool
Moving to Zoom saved our college literally tens of thousands of dollars a year compared to the last program we used for meetings, teaching and clinical supervision. We have about 5000 students, and more than half of those use Zoom for online classes. It is a stable, easy to use platform. We do individual sessions and classes of up to 24 students and their teacher. You can use it for free for meetings of up to 40 minutes. And the paid subscription is really affordable if you need longer sessions.
wedwards - Multitasking is sorely lacking
Please make it possible for zoom to work properly with multitasking. Whilst it does continue to operate in the background, the moment you swap to another app, your video and audio cuts out and stops being sent to others (far end audio also cuts out until you swap back to zoom). With ipad pro and larger screens, we need to be able to participate fully in a zoom meeting, whilst also working collaboratively on other documents and apps. This is the one feature that would allow me to use zoom more effectively every day.
Methuselah 965 - Works surprisingly well
Used Zoom quite a few times now and am getting used to the program. Generally works very well, we have had up to 9 people involved in our own sessions and been in a few sessions with more than that, generally no problems as long as everyone has a reasonable internet connection. If there are a lot of participants it helps to mute microphones.
Well worth a look, and you can do quite a lot with the free version, especially if you tend to have short meetings
memories GH - The Benefit of Zoom to me.
I am an older person and because of Covid 19 restricted time home a bit unable to do all the things I usually do.
I am use to attending Bible meetings at a Kingdom Hall if Jehovah’s Witnesses . As we are unable to do that at present .I can zoom in twice a week for the same meetings. See all my friends and have a chat.
Also my family and friends zoom in with me for morning or afternoon tea and a lot of chatter occurs and I love it. This all helps me not to be lonely and I look forward to Zoom every week. Thankyou
Pro Excercise - Awsome!!
I mostly use this to get in touch with my class mates and it is a really cool app to use for not only class work but also to get in touch with family and one thing they could work on would be better camera quality so they could be more clearer but other than that it’s an awesome FaceTime app and can connect more than 10 people, I would definitely recommend for you to download this and give it a go yourself, that’s why I chose to give this a 5 star rating!
Pandasplayz - OMG Zoom is the BEST
I can talk to every single on of my friends all at once!!!! Zoom is the Best thing I have ever asked for 🤩🤩. During this terrible Corona Situation Zoom is the best thing to talk to all friends at on time!!! If u r reading this I ask u download this video at once to talk to all ur friends while it is to hot or cold outside or~~~ ur just not allowed outside for a pacific reason. So get this app now🥳🥳 and through a party with ur friends and ur self on ZOOM🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🤩🤩🥳🤩🥳 is ur mind blowing or not🤯🤯🤯
Pandaplayz (Abby Rose Shackles Brumley) 🐼🐼🐼 I love Panda 🐼 🐼 panda 🐼
Kitkat2o4 - Awesome but...
Hi I have a complaint
When I am doing Spanish class and the teacher starts sharing the screen very one starts drawing on the screen! And I am just suggesting (you don’t have to do this) but I think when someone starts drawing on the screen it should say someone started drawing on the screen that way we know who is being naughty and we can punish him or her.
Well that’s all from me please send a developer response or think about making these changes!
DynamikDan - Fast but not Ux optimised
I like Zoom but it needs to resolve some critical issues. It must be 100 % clear when I'm muted or when my video is on.
I've had multiple calls now where the mute was not set properly for me or others. There is either a bug or Ux issue. Please change it so the my mute status is visible on every screen. The "tap to speak" screen is the most problematic here.
Further, video should always be off by default. It is an invasion of privacy to have it auto on. Per privacy standards, I should always have to actively allow video per call! I've had numerous customers unaware that the video is on and they are being watched!
kiamaRoe - Overwhelming gratitude
My prayer partner and I have been using Zoom every two weeks for a couple of years to catch up with our lives and prayer for those things on our hearts. We have appreciated Zoom.
But now with Co-Vid19, our gratitude overflows. The uses of Zoom are endless. We took part in church services (yes, multiple) on Sunday through Zoom, held our weekly Bible Study Group last night and tomorrow my husband is participating in his weekly men’s coffee meeting by Zoom.
A million thanks ❤️❤️❤️
MichaelDF - Needs File Transfer option, unless I missed it.
Works fantastically on my iPad and iPhone when I need to attend a call, seminar, or presentation of work whist on the go. The audio and display are clear and near-seamless.
However, I am unable to receive files sent via the Chat window (unless I’m on the desktop version), which spoils the experience of complete mobility. It would be great if I could receive documents and other files over Chat like one normally would on the desktop version of Zoom, but alas!
Orthy3 - Can’t use multiple apps at once
It’s an amazing app and I cannot fault it. However there is a problem as you cannot access other apps whilst you’re in the zoom app and maintain a call. I’m a student using this to hold meetings with teachers on my IPad Pro however when we are asked to type in a document or access information on our online classroom I cannot. As soon as I leave the app it boots me from the meeting. The use of multiple screens at once would be amazing such as you can have two apps open at the same time to work whilst still on call.
Mangomaza - Dont send data to Facebook
This would be 5 stars if you didn’t share our data with Facebook!
Edit: They listened! Privacy is of great concern to all consumers and Zoom has stepped up.
This app is wonderful and helps keep in touch and remain productive in these strange work from home in these trying times! It has all the features you would expect and has performed exceedingly well for meetings, lectures and general chit chat!
Dechlan Ellis - Zero stars - Adding contacts is painful - Lack of security and woeful audio quality
Why is there a 2step process to connect with friends in Zoom?
Step 1 Invite them to setup an account in Zoom
Step 2 Invite them to connect in Zoom
This is a counterintuitive and painful process.
I much prefer FaceTime. The only reason I am using this Zoom app is to play along with other family members already using it.
When we eventually did connect (well, apart from those who couldn’t get through and gave up in frustration), the sound quality was just terrible.
Add to that the inadequate security and the fact that you’re selling our data to Facebook, I honestly don’t know why anyone is using Zoom. I don’t trust it. (My employer won’t allow us to use Zoom for business for these reasons)
I hate this app. If there was a zero star rating that’s what I would give it. I have asked my family to move to FaceTime so that we don’t have to ever use Zoom again.
PS/ I have now deleted my Zoom account and uninstalled the app. Never again.
Nightbloomthesavage - Where are virtual backgrounds on iPads? 😛
Look, this app is amazing, and i love everything about it. It doesn’t crash or lag like Microsoft teams, and it doesn’t randomly disconnect when i open safari! Buuuuuuut...
I use this app on my ipad, and i noticed, there are no virtual backgrounds available!! These are important, because i dont want anyone seeing my house when i do meetings. Can you please add them to ipad? Thanks in advance.
catherine fu - I love zoom!
This app is soooooooo amazing! I use this app every time I have online ballet classes 🩰👩🏻🏫. Zoom is one ☝️ of my top three apps. I also love ❤️ 💕💞💓💗💝💘💖 how the “buttons “ (by the way I call them buttons because you click on them.) are very neatly and simply arranged. The only thing is that sometimes you drop down of your internet connection. Apart from that, everything is perfect 👌. Absolutely perfect.
Theflintlock - Great, But I Have Suggestions.
I really think this is a great application. It works well and is handy to use for school. As a student, I suggest you add a function where when you start screen sharing, or sharing content, you can have a menu pop up allowing you to disable viewer annotations before you start your screen sharing, similar to how when you join a zoom it says : Join with video On or Join with video Off. Overall works well! Great job!
yes yar ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Love grapes, read this...
Well it’s fine (grapes). I have been using this app because of covid-19, obviously while eating grapes, and there is a few things. Okay so first, I always see people changing their backgrounds to these amazing pictures and when ever I look up how to do it and follow the instructions how to exactly I can never find the button. Next, If I want to message a photo of a grape or voice message about me saying grapes a thousand times, I can’t. So, this app is good for calling live, but the accessory grapes are definitely brown and smooshed.
Sr24578 - Great app, needs camera in split screen mode
Hi I have used this app extensively and it works great. It doesn’t allow me to use the camera though when I have the screen split on iPad. Please allow it to use camera as well as audio so I can do a meeting with my notes up on the screen as well as having my camera on so people can see me. Otherwise I have to use two devices or a laptop.
Brighteyes235 - Isolation Online Morning Coffee Chat
I belong to a Baby Boomer Group which usually catches up weekly to monthly for a coffee at a cafe, lunch, dinner, movie, walks, local events & sometimes trips away. One of the organisers of the Group put it out there for a casual chat on Zoom, everybody downloads the app, logs in from the organiser’s link & it is free for 40 minutes per day or unlimited for a cost of $220 per year. It is & has been a lifesaver. Thank you Zoom!
Annie Granny - New Way Forward
Zoom has helped me survive 8 weeks of Covid-19 as a 74 year old susceptible person who lives alone I have been able see my daughter every day also my sister in New Zealand and friend in Tasmania I have been playing Drag Bingo twice a week and doing Meditation with my local friends also a medium I subscribe too my sister has been teaching for her university with Zoom,thank you so much
jjjjjjjjjjjjjjejetvgtv - This is an awesome app but there’s one problem
This is probably the best app for communicating with your friends! It’s kinda like FaceTime, and iMessage mixed together, and has so many other features too. But there’s one problem, when I try to start a meeting, it says to verify my date of birth (which I did so many times) but it kept on saying I was eligible for it, I don’t know why. When I try to enter my mum’s date of birth, it said eligible too! Can you please fix it?
mumga - Great app but a few problems
Zoom is a great app and it works but there are a few issues, firstly the audio quality is near 6 out of 10. Every time I use it, it breaks up so much and it is very frustrating when I miss a step. Second, after forty minutes, it ends the call unless you pay, which I know for lots of apps do, but I feel like you shouldn’t waste your money on that. This app is great but I would like a few changes.
Arghh arghh arghh - Really?
Hi, have been trying to download Zoom app (for iPad) continually I can see the little blue square, but not the circle (after I’ve pressed on ‘get’) but it won’t do anything else.
I have tried - really I have tried (and I’ve used computers virtually since they started - not a geek, but not stupid either...
I have spent hours online with your website trying to find answers - no luck there.
So, not impressed - if it’s not working and it will only do this via my App Store continually - what a waste of my very valuable time. And I needed to access a really important online webinar today - and thought I’d finally cracked it.
Really bad news!
James Underland - Great but some problems
I have been using zoom on iOS and it has been sufficient for daily calls. The audio quality is poor but enough to hear the speaker clearly enough. My main gripe is that you cannot turn the volume down far enough! There is a threshold that you cannot go below in volume, and it is actually quite high: when someone is speaking relatively loudly or a video is playing, the volume is unbearably high.
pottypatcher - Zoom drops out
I scheduled a meeting with someone a couple of days ago. It started well, but about 25 minutes into the meeting her connection dropped out, and could not be restored, even by leaving and rejoining the meeting. ATM we are also doing our church service via zoom. After the service we are allocated chatroooms. Quite often we don’t get connected to our chat room, and either have to leave & rejoin the meeting, or just give up when that doesn’t work. It’s very frustrating.
CGGGK - So impressed with Zoom!
I was initially anxious about how Zoom would work, but it was easier to use than expected and very intuitive. The sound and video coordinated well, and the only issue our group had was with turn taking. Maybe we need to develop hand signals to indicate that we'd like to speak! Thanks, it's a wonderful bonus to have this platform in the time of Coronavirus!

LEGOCHAMPS20 - Shubh patels review on the great zoom
I really like this because it is not as glitchy as other online platforms such as Webex or google meeting. Both of these apps have very bad connection and sometimes some of their access buttons are not even there but zoom is perfectly updated and aware of the future so I think that zoom is the best.
Eden Withford - Name
I use this app for school and I made an account so that I could make zooms between me and my friends and used a joke between us as my name, now ever since when I go into class zooms that’s my name, even after logging out of the account, it doesn’t give me the option to select my name like it did before the account and in some zooms my teachers turn renaming off which makes for a very awkward excuse to why that’s my name, multiple emails have gone out to the whole school to use your real name in calls and I can’t change it even when logged out.
toni the tastey macaroni - Trump spotting
I have been using zoom for online school,
I woke up one day - my innocence so pure. I logged into my first class for the day and I was traumatised, I felt paralysed. There on my screen was the U.S president. His beady eyes squinting at the screen. I couldn’t look away my eyes welled with blood and my hands started to shake. It felt as though the whole world froze and I was being punch in the face.
His skin was so orange, he had circles around his eyes. His hair was reflecting the sun. It burned my eyes, burnt blisters on my skin. Since that day - I have never opened the Zoom app. I am warning you, one day you’ll have to look into his eyes. The monster that is Donald Trump.
MONKEY SYCHO - Zoom rating
I think zoom is a really good app because you don’t need a phone number and you can message people on it. You can accept contacts and you can do some really cool stuff on it. There are some little things I don’t like about zoom such as I can’t message if I’m in a meting on my phone and little things like that but other wise zoom is a really good app from calling family to joining work calls.
AllSPG - Together alone
It is a joy to be able to still have my Sunday service even after a fumble with my iPad. Fun to meet new faces as I am an 8 o’clocker ! I really miss the early service and group time we have at church and later at the Squirrel. But today’s outdoor message was very biblical and I loved it ( dogs and all ) That’s the first time I been to church on the beach since I was a child at Pt Lonsdale..
God Bless and Joy to you all.
BillTheEngineerGuy - Useless on iPad for contacts
Despite instructions for importing your iOS contacts on mobile or desktop, on iPad after trying 50 different privacy and access settings, and reinstalling, there is no way to import your iOS contacts. On iPhone it works because it’s a different version of the app that asks for access to contacts, but even though I’m on a paid account those contacts stay on that device and don’t appear on my iPad. SO annoying and also unclear from all the help guides that don’t even mention tablets and keep referring you back to the mobile guide.
puppygirl23 - zoom and its ups and downs
Zoom gives me the chance to see friends clearly but there is some flaws. It often glitches and stops and when two people are in the same room it echos and hurts everyone’s ears. But however it is most of the time great and you can change your name, profile picture and background. I think Zoom has it its ups and downs. Please fix them and what does hands up mean?
99er - Great app to stay connected
This is a great app to stay connected and attend meetings and generally works alright.
Issue: the ‘meet & attend’ used to appear but that is no longer happening and stays as connected. Which means there are meetings I cannot connect to it is asking for authentic sign in. I go to sign out and says there are connection issues. I’ve reset my phone but that made no difference still having same issue.
.!Peanut!. - Good...
Zoom is excellent and I have had no dramas with it... however there r some things that would make it that little bit better!
1. On chat it would b good 2 tell when someone is typing... so it says it below their name
2. Show when a msg has been delivered and read
3. Be able 2 change a contacts name...but only on your end!
If u could take these things into consideration... it would b wonderful!!
Kguedfhud - Stuffs up my phone
This app drains my phone battery (I mean, it drops from 50 to 20% battery life for a five minute call!) and makes my phone super hot. If someone calls me when I’m not using the phone, it doesn’t ring nor show as a missed call, yet the other person says it rang normally on their end every time. This happens whether or not I’m logged in on the desktop and my settings mean it should ring. No other app does this, no troubles with video phoning, my phone ringing, or battery usage. I’ve had to suffer using it for 5 months and I can’t wait until I can delete it.
AndyK_OZ - Problems
Ever since the last update to the app on my iPhone any meeting link wants to open in a browser instead of the app. I need to copy and paste the meeting ID into the app then manually enter the password. Previously just clicking the link opened the meeting in the Zoom app.
Also, video now appears to be in 4:3 ratio Instead of 16:9. Other users I meet with experience the same issues on their iPhones.
Blue Ozzy - Not bad!
Only used it once so-far - seems very effective, good video and sound quality.
Did experience several 3-7 second dropouts on the mobile even though the signal was quite strong...
Suggestion: When I’m not using the video option, whilst driving, etc, it would be really handy if I could either create an avatar or just use a still photo so that others know who’s on.
carloverrrrrrrr - Please Bring back the good mic quality for ipad air first gen!
Just updated to the earliest version, tried to use original sound, it sounds surpressed when i review it back. Original sound gone worse for some reason, The older version are able to bring the original quality mic sound of ipad. This really helps me a lot especially if Im trying to play instruments through zoom without any loss of quality. In short, please fix the mic quality or bring back as the older version! Thanks!
jihop6u - Please in Chat and Q&A, allow iPad to use gesture select all and copy
1. Please in Chat and Q&A, allow iPad to use gesture select all and copy. Paste to my own App. Now need to copy 1 by 1. painful
Please also allow iPad Keyboard command A select All and copy. Now 100% cannot
It is ultra Important for Student. Many do not have good computer. Only iPad.
2. now there is a bug. Zoom screen zoomed in 150%. I cannot escape to 100%. I tried on different iPads. I tried in Settings. I double tap. I use finger to squeeze and reverse. I tried all.
3. Please in most basic Zoom, on iPad, Teacher can change colour. Now Only Black.
We have tried All Options. Still Black. Really hard for Students to understand the Graph without more Colours.
4. please have a tiny Dashboard show My live upload and download speed. Pre alert 🚨 me when my internet is bad or VPN is switching. 0 Cutting off

Rocky View Schools Reviewer - Takes private information
When I created a account it went fine but when I read the private policy I was horrified. Zoom thinks they have the right to take your passwords and emails then send them to Facebook. These poor teachers barely know what their doing. Their giving their whole accounts to this horrible and cruel app. Don’t use this, trust me for the sake of your private information. I had to give this app a 1 star because that is the lowest I can give them but I think they deserve more of a -1000 star rate. Make sure to give this thing a one star so we can shut it down. If you have this app, it delete it at once.DON’T USE THIS.

Anonymous12CR - Zoom is stealing your information!
The app contains pleanty articles stating that the online application that thousand of students around the world are using for classes ever scince the quarantine created due to the corona virus ( covid19 ), Zoom, thinks that it has the right to obtain ALL of the user’s information and share it with Facebook and other companies, it steals it’s location info, the information on the user’s gmail and others! At all costs, give a low rating on the application to have our information safely stored to us and only us
CISSPman - Characterized as Malware by security engineers worldwide
There are too many issues with zoom to recommend it. They’ve shown a complete lack of understanding and lie to users by selling end to end encryption as if they’re competent enough to deploy it let alone understand what the hell that means.

Zoom, mouchard pour Facebook
Le service de communication par vidéo envoyait des informations à Facebook sans en avertir ses utilisateurs
Zoom est aussi disponible sur mobile. — © Getty Images/iStockphoto
Publié dimanche 29 mars 2020 à 14:54
Modifié dimanche 29 mars 2020 à 14:56
C’est le hit du moment: l’utilisation du service de vidéoconférence Zoom explose depuis l’entrée en vigueur des mesures de confinement dans de nombreux pays et l’intensification du télétravail. Simple à utiliser, offrant une bonne qualité d’image, Zoom propose aussi un service gratuit pour des appels vidéo jusqu’à quarante minutes.
Mais cette gratuité est toute relative. Comme vient de le révéler le site spécialisé Motherboard, Zoom envoyait des informations à Facebook, même si ses utilisateurs ne possèdent pas de compte auprès du réseau social. Les données envoyées à Facebook étaient le fuseau horaire dans lequel se trouve l’utilisateur de Zoom, le nom de son opérateur de téléphonie mobile, des détails sur son smartphone ainsi qu’un identifiant de publicité unique généré, permettant aux annonceurs de cibler les publicités envoyées…
En soi, cet envoi de données n’est pas une exception puisque de multiples applications sont basées sur des interfaces de programmation de Facebook, afin d’intégrer plusieurs fonctionnalités à leur service. Le problème (principal), c’est qu’à aucun moment Zoom n’en informait ses clients. Heureusement que, juste après l’article de Motherboard, l’envoi de ces données a été stoppé.

j22liu - Zoom is odd
I am a paid member in Canada. Once I saw our video calls were “accidentally” routed to Zoom’s server in Beijing. I am very concerned about i5. Zoom drains power of electronic batteries so quickly. I am wondering why it does so fast. My fully charged iPad could only last for only 1.5 hours. Whenever it is used on my laptop, the hard drive screams. It seems it sucks things from these devices.
I used to be able to share screen in Zoom. After criticizing Chinese government, I cannot share my screen any more. After complained it and requested Zoom to reinstate my screen-sharing, they ignored my request.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP!!!!!!!
You will give them permission to gain access to all sorts of information!
I casually downloaded, and casually used
this app on my Apple products, BUT then I tried my netbook today for the first time. I had difficulty in connecting and was trying to figure it out. That’s when I discovered the app permissions. What they state on my netbook is significantly different than what is stated in the app on Apple. Also disconcerting.

BwObola - Zoom isn’t perfect. BUT I like it a lot.
I may be expecting too much from a free app. We have a Zoom Happy Hour every Friday - and have done so since we locked down. Most of us are amateur musicians. My problem is that even plugged (via our level 6 Ethernet) into our gigabyte FIOS or XFinity connections it is still impossible to sync up enough to actual sing (or play) together - even at 15 frames per second. OTOH, ZOOM is essentially very good software which works on all the devices we hook it up on - so I can leave my MacBook, reconnect with my iPhone (or my older daughter’s Samsung) while my wife and our younger daughter are on their Dells and it doesn’t hang up or anything. Our younger (disabled) daughter uses it daily to connect to her support group for various activities without problems. Zoom is a firm five 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟.
whendotte - Meeting on zoom with unwelcome strangers
I just had a meeting on zoom with a group of close friends. This was a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. These meetings help keep us sober. I started the meeting sitting by my 4 year old daughter. Unwelcome guests started entering the meeting and yelling prolific things at me and all of my friends while I was right by my daughter. The leader of the group tried to mute everyone but strangers kept joining and screaming foul things in the background. They started making porn references, screaming and cussing and insulting all of us. We had no choice but to end the meeting quickly because we couldn’t stop the unwelcome guests from entering. These meetings are our refuge and our hope to bring the message to the newcomer and help those who suffer with addiction. If there is a way to make sure this doesn’t happen again in the future that would be great to hear about. This is a first and I just hope it doesn’t happen to anyone/any children in the future. If you have any advice I would be happy to hear it. Thank you and take care.
Lailac. - Okay but it’s just a few things.
I like how it’s just like face time but with a more complex version for education and communication but every night before school zoom sessions and meetings start I have my phone fully charged. By the end of every zoom meeting my phone ends up being around 50-40 percent and it’s just an unbelievable amount of battery usage it needs. Another thing is, let the hosts of the zoom sessions choose how long their zoom class/call should be. Like for example 30 minutes isn’t a lot of time for class for most schools so they should have a choice to put it to 1 hour, 2 hours, and so on. But it’s still good for schooling I give it a 5 star great job for your hard work but please if you can please add what I said to make me happy and thank you!
leary one - No way for complete privacy!
Zoom has the option to be able to join a meeting with out having to give access to your camera on your IPhone, and supposedly w/o giving access to your microphone but what happens is that a message in a box will appear covering up your whole view of anyone speaking and will not allow you to access any features, incurring leaving the meeting, unless you give it access to your microphone!
The message states: Unable to access microphone-Allow Zoom to access your microphone from device menu: “ Settings”- “ Privacy”- “Microphone”. OK
So beware. For an app that wants us to stay connected and at least see faces and hear speakers but not want to be heard or seen for whatever reason that day, you will only be able to hear because of that annoying box. I refuse to give this app that much control of my phone. I will just call using a landline then until they get rid of this annoying message and violation of my privacy.
Turtleyalchemist - Only 1 problem...
Alright, I don’t know what ya’ll are talking about. The audio is crystal clear. The video works just fine. You would think that if Zoom ACTUALLY steals and sells your info, you would hear it on the news! I haven’t heard anything about stolen info on the news. There are just some people who just decide that they don’t like an app because it did one thing wrong, so they scour the internet to find something, anything to use to say something bad about it. Ok. The only problem I have with Zoom is that the airplay feature doesn’t always work well. I have multiple teachers who almost always use the feature. Sometimes (rarely), the video will glitch so bad that we just get our homework assignment and leave. If this one feature gets fixed, instant 5 stars. Haven’t updated it yet so I’m hoping this issue will get fixed. Good luck fixing!
pahilink - I don’t know how i feel about the compatibility with iPad
Zoom is not as great on iPad as it should be, especially on iPad Pro. Honestly im kind of disappointed; the UI is just expanded from iPhone. You cannot view the gallery and you cannot use the app in slide over view with video on not good for devices using Apple Pencil. I don’t understand why that would not be possible but if the app is open in either way, then it should be able to have that capability especially on professional models. I really want Picture in Picture to be implemented for iPadOS as well like FaceTime and other apps that use the same developer kits. So many things are missing that keeps it from being as capable as it can be. I really hope changes regarding this are in the pipeline or i don’t think i will use this app on my iOS and iPadOS devices anymore. Please take this into consideration as this would be a much desired feature among my colleagues, coworkers and professors to increase the accessibility and push the limits of apple’s powerful devices.
Chalmander - Functionality is good, but it is being overused
Don’t get me wrong, the app works as intended, is relatively user friendly minus a quirk or two, but my grief is that schools and universities are trying to make this one app/program replace a classroom. It does not work as well as a classroom, it is a different environment. It is very difficult for students to communicate with one another privately, breakout groups cannot interact with each other, asking a question holds up the entire class, it does not lend itself well to use with other programs on a single monitor unless you are the screen sharer (for instance you can’t position the gallery underneath the shared screen when the window is not in full screen), and the space bar unmute feature has reliability issues.
It’s not really zoom’s fault that universities see it as a messiah, but I will take a star off for its quirks.
Irish annerb - School use options
After being home with my kids for 6 weeks and checking in on zoom classes, I noticed that more then half of the students are dark screen. When discussing with each teacher, our school does not mandate kids to keep screens on during classes. I get it, the whole privacy thing and home life may not all that well. I did notice my child would be off doing other things during class (nipped that one it’s tracks) and he will be more “connected” to class.
But when discussing it with teachers -they agree it’s frustrating looking at blank screen. But is it possible on your end to come up with a way that the HOST (teachers) could control the participants so that they could see everyone connected but that the students don’t see each other unless they need/want to? Just food for thought
Abp2011 - Rarely works & settings/features have minimum explanations
The toggle settings have extremely vague descriptions, if any at all and there are too issues if trying to join a meeting on a device seperate from the device used to see the link, for example, if using an iPad to participate in a program within another app and one of the steps involved in the participation aspect of a learning program is to join a live zoom meeting. The link is provided in the app you are using on the iPad, which is not on your iPhone, but your iPhone is newer and easier to use zoom or most live video meeting apps so you want to join the meeting from your iPhone. It’s nearly impossible to do this with any efficiency or simplicity if you can get the many steps manually entered correctly and accepted through your iPhone zoom app. Of course, this wouldn’t be an issue if we all had the newest models of iPads, laptops and phones, but it’s not realistic and makes the interface and usability of zoom unnecessarily difficult.
Drjacque - Zoom and Covid-19
Thank you to all the Zoom Family for this wonderful interactive tool. It has been a lifesaver, during this Pandemic. We have been able to continue our school work, our business endeavors and stay connected to family. We have conducted meetings, dance parties, karaoke, spoken word, church services, and virtual happy hours, because of your forward thinking. Whether there is 1 or 101, this tool is flexible and easy to learn and to use.
Unfortunately, due to hate and the spirit of disruption, one of our meetings was hacked. The disruptors shared their screens and a flood of porn took over the presentation. The host acted quickly and shutdown the meeting. If there is anything you can do to assure this does not happen in the future, that would be marvelous. Again thank you, Zoomies!
Dr. Jacqueline Davis-Gines
Joshua Joseph Z. Abraham - Developers help me!
All zoom does is lag. You cannot hear anyone, even though their audio is on and so is yours. The flip camera does not work, and usually this app will burn my iPad’s battery so much it will go from a 100% to a 30%. It is good just because I can talk to people. One thing that pisses me off, is that when I make a room with a password, it does not save the password at all. So, everyday when students try to get into my meeting, they cannot because they say it is invalid, or the password is incorrect. I have no idea if they are telling me the truth, I think they are because I have tried it myself. This is a very short review but I STILL HAVE MORE COMPLAINTS. You cannot use this if you are bad with technology. Though zoom my seem simple, it is not. Why can’t virtual background be available on iPad? Whenever I go into a meeting on the iPad, I will be like: “Virtual background.” But then I don’t have that! Ugh, zoom can be very frustrating and annoying, do not buy this app because IT IS VERY LAGGY AND ANNOYING.
Mms video - Awesome app... Keep up the good work.
I have the Pro version and of course I use it for meetings... but lately I’ve used it for everything from showing 100 of my friends around the world how to make bread for the memorial/ Passover at home (between my tablet, iPhone and computer I had a 3 camera setup that amazed everyone) I’ve done movie night at my house, watched vacation videos with friends, game shows... it’s awesome! I don’t know where Zoom was for the last couple of years but I’m actually glad someone started to promote it and that they are working so hard to make it safer. Hopefully when my internet service figures out a way to handle the new influx of all day users I’ll be able to enjoy zoom even more! Keep up the good work... whoever you geniuses are .. you doing a great job!
SongDuck™ - A Lifesaver to virtually being with many other people at once!
This is the the simplest application from my perspective to joining a “meeting”. Every time that I’ve been on, all I needed to do was click on a link from an organization’s website. It works beautifully on all my Apple devices from MacOS to iOS without a hiccup.
Zoom brings a group of people together a virtual meeting. We have been using the app to keep in touch with a group of friends. I like the view that places multiple participants on one (or more) screen. We all see each other in real time. It’s kind of like Apple FaceTime on steroids.
It has been such a useful tool to keep in touch friends who live alone or are elderly. We like it so much that we plan to continue using Zoom even after the pandemic.
Rhapsodynblue7 - Teacher
This app has always worked well and is secure for our students as our school purchased the pro version. I would question the student that posted their families credit card information was stolen due to this app. There is a lot of cyber theft in general right now.
As for the student complaining about meeting times; this is not the applications fault. This student would likely has meeting times during regular school hours. The issue is when students try to sign in during non-scheduled times; this isn’t a 24 hour hotline for teachers. Yes, sometimes it is delayed-usually due to low computer battery (freezing) or too much neighboring technology interference. This is the smoothest and most secure application available. Thank you Zoom!
DesiJonas - WORST SERVICE EVER
I upgraded to Pro ($15) to have a better experience and yet as soon as I payed and they IMMEDIATELY took my money out of my debit card, might I add, the app decided it wouldn’t let me log into my Pro account anymore. AS SOON as I upgraded. I tried all my different devices (computer, tablet, phone) and nothing works. And yes, I have my email and password correct, it's not that. I log in and not even one second later it logs out by itself. I got the Pro upgrade for a specific virtual event I was hosting and it NEVER let me use it. I dont even need that upgrade anymore, it was yesterday, and yet the website STILL wont let me log into the account. I have contacted customer service god know how many times now and NO REPLY WHATSOEVER. I have gotten NO HELP AT ALL. They still have my money (WHICH I AM DEMANDING BACK BY THE WAY), the app/website STILL wont let me Log into my “Pro” account, and I have gotten 0% help from their customer service team. Going Pro was an absolute and utter mistake. I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND I WONT BE USING THIS WEBSITE ANYMORE.
Patrickl27 - Very efficient, currently the best choice for big group meetings
I’m not sure exactly how they do it, but zoom manages to be much more efficient than most of the other video chat apps, even when there’s tons of people on at once. For example on my Mac, google hangouts with just one person uses 150% cpu (one cpu core at full speed, another half), while zoom only uses around 40% CPU even when there’s 30 people sharing video at once. There’s almost never lag, or other glitches with the stream, and it’s great to be able to use both the chat and the participants tab to give feedback to the speakers.
While in principle I’d prefer an open source option like Jitsi Meet, for most people in the real world right now Zoom is the best option, it’s not a coincidence it’s become the platform of choice during quarantine!
Nick Name 6789 - Don’t Use this app if you value security
I’d put 0/5 if I could. The amount of tracking, reporting , and selling data that this app does no matter what your setting are or if the app is open/not is disgusting and invasive. This app tracks browser history, eye movement, track pad movement, background app usage, search history FROM OTHER APPS, and more. The website is a little more private and secure but it bombards you with trying to force you into the app all the time. Whole time it’s doing all this, the meeting or class that you’re in is laggy, sound is off/not synced, there is horrible background noise even if no one but the teacher has their sound on, and sometimes it straight up ends the call and makes you start over. There’s no need for a bootleg skype app to need/have all that information and be spying on people like that. This app is a travesty. Worry more about making the product ACTUALLY WORK and serviceable before you try hacking people’s personal devices and stealing their private info.
ArtieFufkin10 - Poorly Executed
In theory this app and service is a great idea but in practice the execution horrible and is completely unreliable.
I’m a mobile developer and in many situations My colleagues and I are forced to use Zoom to run our product demos. Since we are demoing our apps we want to screen share the app as we would do with any Air Play technology.
That’s where this falls apart. As a straight Air Play replacement, this tech is a huge fail. Connections constantly drop and there is an unbearable amount of latency between the presenting and display devices. You’re way better off using a regular old Apple TV which is steady and reliable.
Trying to use the mobile app while joining a meeting is another nightmare. The mobile app cannot maintain connection as people are joining and leaving the call. We’ve tested in different rooms with above average network quality and the ceiling seems to be “average performance at best”.
So where does this leave us? With botched demos that frustrate developers and audience members. Nothing is worse than being unable to show off work you’re proud of because your presentation equipment is letting you down.
For our org it might be too late as our company has bought in 100% into this tech which is probably way more complicated and complex than a standard Apple TV set up and nowhere near as reliable. If you have a chance to avoid this, please do so.
Kekerich409 - Usually good but iPhone bug: incorrect password
This app usually works great; I can be on the go but still attend a meeting. I was disappointed tonight because I was planning to virtually support a good friend of mine who was giving his first talk in a different language in the third world country he and his wife moved to. I tried to log in a few minutes in advance and kept getting “incorrect password “ no matter what I did. I know that the ID and password were 100% entered correctly. I tried closing zoom and reentering, changing the letter case,etc. I was not at home so I could not pull out my laptop as a backup plan. All of my friends were able to attend and show support but I had to apologize for not being able to get in. This is a huge bummer because you only give your first talk in a new language once. The talks to come won’t have that same significance. Please fix this.

edjwal - “caged innocent creature”
That’s been the feeling of my existence since C19. having ailments that caused me to retire in my late 50s I took what I’d saved and relocated. Got busy caring for an aging parent which has wore on my health faster, enter C19. I was invited to an appropriate support group here on zoom and it’s been like having friends from NY(back home)and new friends globally. Being sick, lonesome feeling useless, Zoom has soothed some of the physical pain of my ills and certainly put people in my life that have given me hope for for a life worth living, which I’d considered snuffing! Through these platforms I met others who felt and thought the same I’m not entirely alone anymore. Thank you Zoom and all my new zoomies.

KathiHR - Features are not available
I have the free version and several of the features ZOOM claims is part of the free version are just not there. And even though we just had a meeting of three people (so both accepted my invitation to the A/V chat) only one of the persons shows up in my contacts. The missing person's name was showing before and during the chat.
I chose to sync in my calendar and it defaulted to the length of time it should be, unbeknown to me. And we were shut down mid -sentence.
There is no GALLERY; no link to the VIDEO ; nothing to indicate that we ever had the ZOOM chat. But those features are supposedly part of the free ZOOM. And I did go into settings and set it up to record the video. I could see at the top of the screen "stop video" and the timer that was keeping track of the video.
Then I looked at the ZOOM BUSINESS app in the APP STORE. I read through everything and could not find a PRICE. SO I clicked on GET, hoping that would tell me. Instead, it just told me in a 1 second blip that I would be charged. Good thing I didn't blink!!
How do I cancel that? And which on one of the ZOOM business apps is it charging me? The $49/mo or $17/mo? Do I really have to ask?
ihhfh - Good and convenient but really glitchy - downloader beware!
I like using this app to communicate with my classmates and teachers while we do remote learning. I also like using it to just have fun with friends. But as convenient you might think it is, there are a few strings attached. It’s really glitchy and if you’re using an iPad or iPhone you swipe through it takes a few seconds for each square to load. It makes a really annoying echoey sound when someone’s audio is glitching that drives me crazy, and when someone is being let it they’re not actually in the meeting for a few seconds afterward. If you want to have a long and intense conversation with some people, Zoom is not the app to use. It glitches every two seconds and I get so frustrated. In conclusion it’s okay and good for remote learning, but would be way better without the glitches. Downloader beware!!
Artie Ott - “WHOSE ZOOMING WHO”
I was able to communicate with hundreds of people tonight from all over the country, and it was such a great experience! My daughter directed, and was one of the actors in a brilliant play, written by the great Chadwick Boseman over fifteen years ago! The play was “DEEP AZURE”, which was brilliantly presented on ZOOM! Along with the technical people, the actors , and all the people who brought this play to life, was just amazing! Being on the East Coast, and with the Lakers being on television at the same time, was a challenge for my attention in itself! But for over five hours including intermission, ZOOM was just a great vehicle to bring this play of this amazing actor/writer, to the ZOOM Stage for so many people without missing a beat, and it kept my attention! Zoom is amazing!!! 🏆
Daniquanda - Horrible support
I am a student in college and it’s clear that during a time like this where all schools had to abruptly move to online remote instruction, zoom was the main option. I have been using zoom since the pandemic first took its toll and I didn’t have any issues. It is now my final week of my LAST semester of college before I graduate and I am having a major problem both desktop and mobile app. I really need to study and this is the only way I can, so I figured I could call zoom support and get it taken care of. Well no, because zoom doesn’t allow the student level to interact with their support team. How ridiculous is that? During a pandemic when 95% of schools moved to zoom they say that they’re not going to assist students with any technical difficulties??? Are you kidding me?? have a final exam in three days and my professor cannot help me with this technical problem. Horrible support team ESPECIALLY in such a difficult time like this. Unacceptable.
PandasRmagical - I HATE zoom!
Look, I take pride in being an extremely calm person, it’s one of my best personality traits. But when I talk about zoom, I’m not afraid to YELL about how much I HATE zoom! I know, I know, hate is a strong word. While guess what? I have a STRONG HATE for Zoom!
First of all, I’ve heard things about zoom taking information off your computer! Second, it’s horrible for teachers trying to do online classes because student can just minimize the tab and play video games. Also, if your teacher is trying to mute you, you can unmute yourself. HORRIBLE for teachers, MUCH WORSE for students! Innocent student like me get ZERO PRIVACY during zoom calls! Send a private message to a friend? YOUR TEACHER CAN AND WILL SEE IT! I WOULD RATHER GO BACK TO CLASS THEN ONLINE SCHOOL IF I HAVE TO USE ZOOM. AND I HATE CLASS!
Many innocent students and teachers are forced into using Zoom by the government, and its not okay. If everyone gives Zoom a horrible review, maybe we can get it deleted form the App Store? So who’s with me? SHUT DOWN ZOOM, SHUT DOWN ZOOM!
Doggykinz14 - Bad ratings are from angry students
In my opinion this app is really helpful. A lot of people are giving it 1 star because it's not working, but that's probably because so many students, teachers, workers, etc are downloading the app and making accounts all at once. Servers can only take so much. Also, a lot of the 1 star ratings within the past week give no explanation, so their probably just written by students that are upset about still having to go to school. As a student myself, I'm glad this app is here because now I can still graduate on time.
I would give 5 stars, but the audio seems to glitch sometimes and I can't be heard even if the microphone is on. I'm not sure if this is because of the app or the network, but it can be frustrating either way.
Thank you to the developers!
MacksattheBeach - Things to improve
Zoom has been amazing for my students. It has given us an opportunity to see each other as a whole class and a chance to continue our learning journey together during this unusual time. I would love to see some changes or updates to Zoom.
It would be great if there is a blur background feature. Having a sound feature option for the raise hand feature would be great too. I don’t always see it when I am hosting a meeting of 24or more students. If there could also somehow be an option to praise participants. For example, the host can give stars or emojis in response to a raised hand. I know you currently have thumbs up and down.
Anyhow, just some thoughts from a 3rd grade teacher who appreciates your product! Thank you for keeping us connected during COVID!
Cody Pond - I enjoy using it but..
Zoom is a great app when it comes to using it for conference calls, work, even online classes because of what’s going on (hint hint). And I have been using it for over a month now and I have noticed that every time I go on Zoom for work, I’ve had to connect both my iPad and my desktop. What would make this experience of using Zoom 1000 times better is if it had the same features in the app as the desktop version has. So, to be able to send people to breakout rooms, for example, straight from my iPad would make this a lot better then having to connect two computers at once. If this app can bring that, I will change this to a five star review. And I hope that Zoom reads this and actually considers adding these features. Thank you.
Wink06 - It good for when you are working from home
This is a good app for times like these when you can't see each other. I can still see all of my friends and learn like I'm at school. I think this app was a great idea for teachers and students to join meeting for fun or for school work like assignments that are due. I like to use this app for school work and meeting up with my friends to chat for hours. One thing that I thinks needs to improve is that some people cannot use the virtual backgrounds on the app. I think that needs to be improved so that if you have differences things going on in the background for your screen you can block it out with a virtual background. That is why I love the app for at home but needs one fix
hotubs - Poor set up instructions
Very poor set up instructions and what there is for instruction
They are written in such a way that a person such as myself not being familiar with a lot of the terminology and what happens if I turn this green button on or off in my settings. Too many options for a meeting and not enough explanation.
I sat in on my first meeting and never saw a person on the other end. I guess everyone in the meeting could see me but all I saw was me looking at my screen even though I tried reversing the camera which the app wouldn't let me do..
I am supposed to be giving a meeting which I have no idea how this happened and I have no idea how in hell I get rid of it.
It asked for email contacts for meeting so thinking of the people that will be involved at these meetings are going to be employees and not friends and not knowing who will attend these meetings I cram as many emails that I could find for the people I could think of and can't find any of these addresses. What a waste of time and nothing to guide a dummy like me through the steps as to what and why needs to be done.
I believe that there is another meeting this Friday and I hope I have better results because I turned on some more green buttons that I have no idea what they mean.
crownflower - Review
Always good to be refreshed. Coming back to basic putting the fun back in parenting. Nurturing our children with honor and respect. Having that connection with those we birth and those that God allows to cross our path in our life time. Reaching out to others that might have lost the joy of living. If everyone of us can touch one heart beat the world would be a different and better place!
I claim this: I have a choice to be powerful; I control only me; I can help another person only if they acknowledge they have a problem; I have the power to connect with others; my boundaries keep me safe, happy, joyful and full of love for myself and others; I will not only listen but I will hear what is being said; I will set my priorities and make my yes yes and my no no. No more “I can try”!!; I am in it to make a difference and reach the goal as long as The Lord allows me. Praise Him...
Applauds to Nanaikapono Church Family for continuing to bring life to our community and beyond. You serve a LOVING Savior. You exemplify the true meaning of Aloha-Keeping the Sprit of ALOHA Alive!! Thank you Pastor Allen .... for letting the Holy Sprit use you in a Might way
Blessings Aunty Allene
OtTieTX - Worst site ever
Zoom has deleted my account for so called violation of policy or use. I sent correspondence and have yet to get any response. I asked for some sort of evidence or proof and from what source(s) it was obtained. All contacts and files chat room history and information on the account is inaccessible and I assume has been deleted. This is an arbitrary way of cleaning up their act I suppose, however after reading the policy and rules of use I have to disagree with their findings until shown proof of exactly what violation and what rule. Where did they obtain it. Were my personal files and information reviewed? Is there any necessary permissions I gave when signing up and agreeing to said policy? Apparently this company or app developer can pick and choose freedom of choice speech and expression as they see fit and are going about forcing a standard or self interpreted level of freedom on their customers. Who do actually pay to use the app/site! Let’s see if I’ll get a response!
kimjaeee - Thank you Zoom!
Has been a overall great platform to access and interact with groups/individuals in any case. Thought the least I can do is offer 5 stars, i haven’t figured out exactly how the contacts part work or even what a channel is or how to utilize this service efficiently. It’d be nice if before creating an account or accessing a meeting initially there was some kind of knowledge prior too, that is required for users to get some kind of insight as far as the procedure or expectations for basic usage on the app.
I am forever grateful during this pandemic, this was available to so many and I was able to get things accomplished throughout many aspect of my day to day life. Zoom you are greatly appreciated, & thanks so much!
michelle lee :) - ZOOM Ratings
Zoom is an incredibly useful app, that has helped me communicate with my friends, teachers, relatives, and more. However there are some things the app could fix. First of all the Camera and Audio need to seriously up their game, I can hardly hear my teachers if the app does not transmit to me what they are saying, and that’s saying a lot since both of our internets are fine. Second of all the part that I can’t sign into my own google account disturbs me, so I would like for that to be fixed as well, so I can start my own meetings, get in my own account (instead of having to be logged out), and yeah. Finally all I have to say is that ZOOM is definitely an app I would recommend, but for the app’s staff please fix these... issues... ANYWAY thanks your time everybody!~ :D
Bitd12 - Love the app and so reliable!
I’ve been using FaceTime for as long as I can remember on my iPad but then recently started having connectivity issues I’m assuming due to pandemic. I decided to try Zoom and love it! It has not demonstrated any type of latency or disconnects during calls and the various options available are great to have available in the free version. Unfortunately we can’t use at work but for my family and friend connects it’s great. Another plus is group video chat works on my parent’s iPad Air devices which FaceTime couldn’t perform this function. So glad I downloaded and I will continue to use! Thank you for facilitating my ability to see my family face to face during our quarantine!!
Talon4 - Works fine for us.
Have been using zoom a few times a week over the last month and it has worked very well for us. Sure every once in a while there is some lag or weird little glitch but that has been minor and nothing compared to what other users are complaining about. Plus it’s technology, it’s going to happen from time to time. Some of our meetings have 80 people attending and as long as the host is organized it works well. We typically mute all users and call on them when they “raise” their hand, it keeps things fluid and prevents people from talking over each other. Obviously user experiences will vary widely depending on the device they are using, their internet connection and so on. It works great on my iPhone 7, iPhone 11 and Surface Pro.
Julia Ponnezhan - It keeps crashing
While I do enjoy using this app for school related reasons this app would be one of my favorites except the fact it always crashes. I just started using the app today and I already find myself loving it. I like the fact you can call and FaceTime in large groups and still mute yourself or anyone else (if you are the host) but I do not like the fact that I repeatedly crashes. Whenever I am on the app it works for a couple of seconds then exits me out to my home screen now you can just open it again and it works but this happens nonstop so this annoys me. Although this could have just happened because of the Covid-19 outbreak and students being on there constantly. To summarize I enjoy this app and recommend it, but just be aware that it might crash.
Viaurora - Alright
Zoom is alright. I am a teachers assistant and we use it M-F for virtual classes with our little friends. I don’t use the app on my laptop because my operation system is too old and doesn’t support it. So, I use it on my phone. I wish we were able to mute and unmute friends by click on their the mic on their video instead of having to go to participants and doing it from there. I also am not a fan of the removal of the “unmute all” option. We (teachers) used it all the time just to hear everyone at once when asking them a question as a group. Our friends are too young to mute and unmute themselves and unmuting them all individually is a hassle and time consuming when trying to get through a lesson. Please return the “unmute all” option. The teachers with younger friends would highly appreciate it. Thank you.
Karen will sue - Karen’s first review and last review
This app is horrible if I could get this app zero stars I will give it zero stars and I’m not just doing this to get them online school I’m doing this because you guys are stealing peoples information and uploading it to who knows where like who knows where you’re uploading the stuff so this is why I’m giving you one star I’m so disappointed in this app why don’t we just use launch pad this app is so annoying because I will want you to get shut down soon and you’ll be sorry you ever made this app because you guys are gonna lose so much money because you guys made a really bad app So this app is horrible and I wish someone will see you soon and I’m just going all out in this review because it deserves to be known from the public and I bet Facebook has something to do with it whatever whatever just this thing better get shut down immediately. And maybe I am acting like a Karan and that’s your guises fault.
OCMickey - Very good Event
The enthusiasm of each of the leaders set a good tune through out the meeting. I particularly liked the host of my breakout group but he needs to remember a lot of us or a lot older than the folks leading these events and the folks he selects to answer his questions. Some of us are around Biden’s age and have worked in campaigns since before their parents were born. The one thing one wish we had more time with was the Bojo App! All in all in was fun it. I was involved. I learned a couple of new things. I was an organizer for the Industrial Areas Foundation in Baltimore called BUILD. We did relational community organizing in the 1980’s and early 90’s through churches, schools, businesses colleges and universities! Our breakout was really good!
Wolfie The Gamer - Steals information - Hard to use
I know people say “Don’t listen to everything you hear on the internet”, but at this point we have to trust what we hear. It’s bad enough that Tiktok is taking our information without our permission. Keep in mind it was a China made application, one of the most rich countries in the world, but I just found out this this app puts our information on Facebook without our permission! I can understand keeping it to yourself but putting it online?! That’s just wrong. This app needs to be canceled immediately. Does this app put the information of students that use it for online school on Facebook as well?!
Besides the whole stealing information thing, Zoom is naturally hard to use, especially on mobile. Some of the tools used were never explained, specifically to new users. If you decide to stop sharing our information with the world, at least make a video explaining how to use the app properly
MOTOMOVES - Good app but there is a very concerning issue
Pastor RobGee - Kinda weird
There is NO such thing as a perfect app ... NONE ... but as far as this platform ... ZOOM is by far the best in it’s class hands down ... and it is NOT close ... I have tried them all ... thus why I gave it the 5 stars ... but what is weird is that the reviews that give it 3 or less ... sound so eerily similar ... like it could be posted by a competitor that is trying to level the playing field ... lol ... hope I didn’t embarrass someone but a wise old woman I know used to tell me ... if it walks like a cat and eats like a cat and talks like a cat ... it might be a cat ... lol ... good try ... but it is so easy to see right thru that ... lol ... NO I do NOT work for Zoom NOR did I get paid to say this ... I get paid to tell the truth ... look at my user name!!!
soaosowo - THE WORST APP EVER!
If I could put no stars on this I would! It is absolutely terrible! I was going on to a meeting for school and I could not hear anybody, and if I did hear them it would be robotic! Everyone was frozen on my screen and I could not hear my teacher! I missed almost a weeks worth of homework because of this dumb app! Honestly I can’t stand it. It makes my whole computer lag to the point where I have to get off zoom all together.I could get in bad trouble if I leave but it’s no use waiting my time on listening to nothing, and seeing just my teachers frozen face.I would love for them to shut down but to many people like them. I don’t know how they can love such a horrible app. To all people seeing this! I REALLY recommend getting an app called marcopolo. I am not sponsored in any way but it is my favorite app to chat with so I do recommend to at least check it out or get ring central instead just not this dumb confusing app.
jdmcw19 - Super
A few glitches at first, but basically gets u in the meeting. There’s a learning curve on more advanced actions, (not ready for that yet) but I believe there is a book or some link for further tutoring... which is not evident to me. (maybe on website & not app itself) This should be more apparent to users. Maybe it’s for the ‘pro’ users only?
I’m using Zoom in the busy times of corona-19 so there are lapses/cutouts of speech and a bit less of video. However I think it’s more related to the bandwidth? (or some technical term) and not the software itself, as other software like Tele-Health are having similar probs.
Thanks for the app! It fills the niche of smaller free meetings w good connectivity that aren’t childlike in features and users... my opinion.
ileyanAilad - GREAT!!!
GREAT! GREAT!! EXCELLENTE!!! I am very happy about the zoom app. It’s helped my friends, brothers and sisters stay connected ( reunited at distance) so that we can get spiritual guidance in the middle of this stressful times. Due to corona virus, we are unable to gather due for our own safety and that of our neighbor. But thru the zoom app we are able to see ourselves, listen to each other. It almost feels as if we are next to each other. We can surely keep doing what Hebrews 10:24,25 asks that we do: “And let us consider one another so as to incite to love and fine works, 25 not forsaking our meeting together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you see the day drawing near”.
We surely hope the words from Isaiah 33:24d
Greeknurse - Extremely reliable, consistent, never an issue during a webinar
I highly recommend ZOOM. I’m connected @ lightning speed- within 10 seconds. It’s the most reliable & user-friendly meeting platform I’ve utilized (I’ve utilized so many). It’s very user-friendly as a presenter & attendee. It’s very seamless to transfer your presentation from your iPad, laptop or computer.
The HD visual clarity, outstanding sound & volume are to be commended. I did note a few comments regarding issues with these aspects. It seems like those issues could possibly be related to something on the user’s system. I’m very impressed that ZOOM’s Developer Team responds to their user’s issues & reaches out directly to the end users to resolve the issue(s).
Lucasceptile - It’s really useful, but could be better.
Zoom has helped me a lot when it comes to school. Zoom helps teachers to speak to their students and help them learn without being in close quarters. There is one problem though. Zoom should have more security. When I was attending my class, a random person named He Man came into the Zoom and started typing bad things into the chat and blasting inappropriate music. One other thing I think they should change in Zoom is the ability to write when a person is screen sharing. Anyone can write on what the teacher is reading to the class and that doesn’t seem to be able to be toggled by the teacher.
So, all in all Zoom is helpful, but could be with a few security improvements.
Very Dissappointed 2020 - Court hearings via Zoom in Hillsborough County Florida
Terrible experience with forced Zoom Court Hearings in Hillsborough County, Florida. This pandemic has closed the court rooms in Hillsborough County, Florida. We are forced to use Zoom Meeting Rooms. I was constantly being bumped to the Waiting Room and being let back in the court meeting room again; being bumped again back to the Waiting Room and let back in again, dozens of times all through three different hearings between June through September. Facing four more forced Zoom held hearings in Hillsborough County, Florida through Zoom again and dreading it. One would expect no interference when hosting a county court hearing for a state. Terrible business! I was excluded so much from the proceedings, a transcript had to be ordered at a cost of hundreds of dollars. I missed over 60% of the conversation. How could my rights have been protected with such terrible interactions and interruptions of this program? Such a miscarriage of justice!!!
