How to set up for a FREE Zoom meeting

ZOOM is VERY easy to use

For our BFO meetings, there will be a link provided that you just click and voila you are there.  Make sure you have your audio on (so everyone can hear you), you do NOT have to connect a video if you don’t want to be seen – but let’s face it… we want to see and hear each other during this stressful time.

Create your FREE account  https://zoom.us/freesignup/

Do you need an account to use Zoom?
A Zoom account is not required if you are strictly joining Zoom Meetings as a participant. If someone invites you to their meeting, you can join as a participant without creating an account. However, if the host has restricted joining meetings using authentication profiles, then the participant will need a Zoom account to access the meeting

A Zoom account is only required if you need to create your own meetings and send invitations to participants. Having a Zoom account allows you to create your own Instant Meetings or Schedule Meetings. An account also allows you to access your personal settings, where you can update your profile or upgrade your plan at any time. 

How do I signup for Zoom?
You can sign up for a free Zoom account at zoom.us/signup

How much does Zoom cost?
A basic Zoom license is free. Learn more about available Zoom plans and pricing.

Joining a Meeting 

How do I join a Zoom meeting?
You can join a meeting by clicking the meeting link or going to join.zoom.us and entering in the meeting ID. Learn more about joining a meeting.  

How do I join computer/device audio?
On most devices, you can join computer/device audio by clicking Join Audio, Join with Computer Audio, or Audio to access the audio settings. Learn more about connecting your audio.

Can I Use Bluetooth Headset?
Yes, as long as the Bluetooth device is compatible with the computer or mobile device that you are using.

Do I have to have a webcam to join on Zoom?
While you are not required to have a webcam to join a Zoom Meeting or Webinar, you will not be able to transmit video of yourself. You will continue to be able to listen and speak during the meeting, share your screen, and view the webcam video of other participants.
