Some years ago, it wasn’t easy for many organizations to imagine running businesses entirely on online apps or getting work done with a remote workforce. Today, many online apps, including web conferencing software have helped us fill the gap, equipping teams to work from multiple different locations. Now, to continue increasing remote productivity, Zoho Meeting is happy to present video conferencing with a new and interactive interface.
Let’s take a look at what you and your organization can achieve with Zoho Meeting’s new video conferencing feature.
A new, user-friendly UI
The online meeting interface of Zoho Meeting now has a fresh look with the main menu placed at the top for easy access to essential features. The active speaker in a meeting can now be identified by the blue frame around their video feed and a microphone icon at the bottom left corner. You can also search names in the participants list, sort names in alphabetical order, and change your audio and video devices from Settings during a meeting. Learn more.
View multiple feeds at a time
Being able to see your meeting participants face to face helps you articulate thoughts better and build rapport. The new video conferencing feature in Zoho Meeting lets you conduct meetings with up to 100 participants and view 25 active video feeds at a time. Add organization members, clients, partners, or customers to your meeting and conduct discussions for as long as you want. Zoho Meeting does not have a cut-off time for meetings, even in the free edition, and external members without Zoho accounts can also join meetings without signing up.
Screen sharing and remote access
Screen sharing is an essential part of remote collaboration. Share your screen with others in a meeting to deliver a presentation or to show a document during your meeting. Share your entire screen or just a select app window. If needed, others can request remote access to your screen and collaborate on the document or presentation.
Admin control for video meetings
Organization admins can enable or disable video meetings for all members in their organization. If video meetings are disabled, no member will be able to use their camera during online meetings.
Choice of video device
You can use your computer’s built-in camera or an external web camera for your video meetings. To use an external web camera, you just need to select the right device just before you enter a meeting. This applies to external microphones as well. You can also change your camera and mic during a meeting from the Settings menu.
Security and privacy of online meetings have become a matter of concern as more organizations depend on web conferencing apps for remote work. In Zoho Meeting, the meeting host can lock a meeting and allow only selected participants to join the meeting. With this feature, you can prevent hackers and abusers from intruding into your video meetings. The meeting host can also mute participants and remove them from a meeting if required.
Encryption and consent to protect privacy
Zoho Meeting puts your privacy first by requesting your consent before performing important actions like transmitting video and audio or sharing your screen. Video and audio in Zoho Meeting are encrypted using DTLS-SRTP encryption. Screen sharing is encrypted through DTLS-SRTP from the presenter’s end and through TLS 1.2 from participants’ end.

Meet directly from your browser without downloads
Downloading software before your meeting causes unnecessary delay and may also make your desktop vulnerable to security threats. With Zoho Meeting, you can start and join video conferencing sessions from your browser without downloading software. All you need to do is to click the link to start or join your meeting, enter your name, and click Join. Zoho Meeting works well on modern browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
