Part #2. Creating an account on the site

If the use of Zoom on iPhone will be limited exclusively to participation in conferences created by other users, the registration procedure in the service is optional. Let’s talk about the opportunities provided by having your own account on the site:

  • Organizing online events and inviting participants to them.

There are often cases when during the first connection to the conference, the user does not hear or see other participants of the event, and they do not see or hear him. The problem is solved in a few simple steps. First, click on «connect» (the button is located in the lower left corner), then tap on the label in the pop-up window. In theory, the sound should appear.
