Seamlessly present your world-class events online with Zoom Meetings and Zoom Webinar.
When hosting large meetings, it's important for the host to know what features they can access and how to enable/disable them. Zoom Meetings is an activity for a group of people to easily interact with each other for the sake of mutual exchange of ideas and cooperation, and it allows all participants to easily communicate and share with each other or the host.
Zoom Webinars are the best method for presenting to a large audience where the host has more control and attendees can join with optional audio or video turned on. The focus of the webinars is on the presenter or the panelists. Participants join to listen, learn, and ask questions at the end. Zoom Webinar supports large internal and external events, such as city council meetings, product announcements, customer conferences, concerts, and even religious gatherings.

Zoom Meetings is designed to be highly collaborative, allowing all attendees to share content and turn their videos on or off, annotate, use a whiteboard, and contribute to the conversation.
