moderated zoom chat

Justin Williams

I see a lot of info on having a zoom meeting, but is there anything on the zoom chat messenger?


What I mean is, some of the keystrokes that work in the meeting, don't work in the chat.


Also, I can't copy links or operate them while in the zoom chat room, and it doesn't seem as fluid as the meeting.

You can chat with zoom?  I thought it was just for meetings, not like skype.

Ou also can zoom fact time if both devices have zoom app. installed.


So, if you have a iPhone and another has a android and they both have zoom installed you can live talk  just like apples facetime

Not to sound too stupid, however, does the other person you are calling need an ID # to answer or does it in fact act like making a face time call?  I’ve only used Zoom to join meetings and when someone was helping me with setting up zoom yesterday I had to type in an ID # to talk to him.  Sounds complicated I know.  I talked to him on my landline first and then he kept the landline opened and called me via zoom. However, I needed to keep Zoom opened as well, then had to punch in the ID #.  Thus if I had not been talking to him on the phone, I would had not known he was calling via Zoom as there was no alert.   


For those who want a great audio book about how to use the most commonly used features of Zoom both as an attendee and as a meeting organizer, please see Jonathan Mosen's webpage for same:  Free audiobook, “Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a Blindness Perspective”

Review his overview about the book contents there and download a free copy.  There's nothing like going to the source, and no point in rehashing anything when the source material is available with a simple link activation.
