New video conference app alert!
We use Zoom for work and we managed to get a Chromebook and two iPads because we use Zoom so much. It's coming in handy with doctors offices going teleconference now because of the pandemic going around. Love Zoom! Easier than Skype and isn't the worst in hogging your internet.
I use it for conference with people from USA so i don't think it's scam.
And i haven't head anything about corona positive, also web selling information is nothing new sadly
We use it here to keep in touch with family members. My husband's family is doing weekly Zoom get togethers to help feel connected during the shut down and the first time I joined a meeting it was just complete chaos. I think having their children in the meetings, even though they're adorable, contributed to everyone trying to give attention to the kids and their antics instead of talking to one another. So I left with a bad headache.
The second meeting was a lot better because there were no kids around and we could finally actually "catch up" and then start in on the family teasing and joking. It was a successful meeting.
There are some security risks with the software but that's because the company never expected it to take off like this. There will be a new version coming out soon so I feel better about that.
Also, I think if the host does something on his/her end with not allowing shared screens that it helps?
