Zoom offers video conferencing, screen sharing, chat, and online meetings across many platforms including Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, and mobile devices. Zoom does not require an account to join a conference, and a free basic account includes the ability to host unlimited one-on-one meetings, and unlimited group meetings (three or more attendees) for up to 40 minutes each.
If you have the need to host a meeting with a group for longer than 40 minutes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a pro account license.
