These meetings can be either video meetings, using your device’s built in camera or a USB camera, or they can be screen share meetings, where participants are viewing documents, webpages, etc. Zoom meetings can be recorded, saved and uploaded to YouTube or other sites, allowing you and your team to create and share group presentations.
