Participants can join a Zoom Meeting without signing in to the app. However, they must register for an Account to host a Zoom Video Meeting. Premium versions allow Zoom meetings up to 1000 participants and unlimited phone calls.

Zoom is available for all major mobile and desktop operating systems including Windows, macOS and Android.

Zoom for free or pay?

Zoom is free to all and the basic free version has all the features most people need. As with all things, you get what your pay for.

Zoom provides video conferencing free of charge for up to 100 people, as long as the meeting lasts no more than 40 minutes. After that, participants are removed from the conference. The host can just start another call if you are not bothered by the inconvenience of dialling back in.

It supports unlimited one-on-1 meetings, screen sharing and chat, as well as virtual backgrounds and whiteboards.

The paid version allows you to schedule repeat meetings and removes the time limit for group video conferences (pushing it to 24 hours).

The most basic paid version (opens in a new tab) costs $149.90/PS119.90/AU$209.90 per year when billed annually or $14.99/PS11.99/AU$20.99 per month, which is a little more expensive in the long-run.

The quoted prices do not include any additional add-ons, such as webinar facilities, large meetings (upto 1000 participants), and additional cloud recording storage. This will increase the price.
