More About Zoom

The FREE Zoom video conferencing software is like Skype, only better

The completely free Zoom video conferencing software runs on all smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers and will let you attend my online meetings or engage in a private video call. The software is completely free to download and completely free to use since there are no monthly or per-minute charges imposed by the company that makes the software.

All you need is that software. Just download and install the software on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Then start the program and pick a username and password. That creates your Zoom account. After that, you'll be ready to go.

You do NOT need to signup for a Zoom plan, which is different from an account. Plans are for people who want to host their own meetings. This is why you do not need to even signup for the free Basic Plan just to video chat with me or join our meetings.

By the way, one reason why I like Zoom better than Skype is that it allows for larger meetings. That's important. Another reason is that under certain conditions, it allows people to record their own copy of both the audio and the video. You can record all of the meeting or just part of it, no matter what anyone else is recording, so that's nice. But please note that if you want to record on a smartphone or a tablet, you will need to sign up for a basic account ($15 per month). You can change back to a free account if you later decide you don't need this feature.

Here are the links to download the Zoom software:
     For any Apple tablet or phone
     For any Android tablet or phone
     For any laptop or desktop computer

Thanks for considering a video call. In truth, I honor your divine nature.

All my best, Thomas Razzeto
