Zoom for Home features:
Users can log in to a Zoom for Home-compatible device with a Zoom user account to create office experiences without additional licenses (Zoom for Home is available with all Zoom Meeting licenses, including Basic.) They can start ad-hoc or scheduled meetings, take and receive phone calls, and virtually collaborate with content sharing and annotation.
Zoom for Home syncs with the user’s calendar, status, meeting settings and phone for an integrated video-first unified communications experience. Zoom for Home devices can be set up to be IT-managed remotely through the Admin Portal or self-managed by the end-user.
In a time where employers are grappling with what the new normal of work will look like, Zoom for Home will improve employee experiences to connect remotely and be productive, claims the company.
