With the free version of Zoom, you can host up to 100 other call participants for a maximum of 40 minutes. To host groups for longer, then additional licences will be required.

This all makes for easy peasy planning, which means less stress.

Zoom is designed to work on almost any device from a major manufacturer. The software is available in both app form for mobile devices and it can also be downloaded for use on computers.

How do you schedule a meeting?

Scheduling a meeting is free and easy with Zoom. All you need to do is click the ‘Schedule meeting’ button, share the meeting ID and password and make sure that all the participants have access to this. You can also allow it to add the meeting to your calendars so you can keep track of the time.

How do you play games on Zoom?

This depends on what option you choose. If you go for a hosted game (e.g. Around the World or The Team Quest) professional hosts will take care of everything for you – all you have to do is share a link with all participants. The DIY route also offers many possibilities. You can get a board game and share your screen or download an app to play together. If you decide to go with an unhosted game you may need to use the breakout rooms feature in order to split your colleagues into teams – if you are not sure how to do it, check out this easy to follow, step by step guide on how to create zoom breakout rooms.

What are some games to play on Zoom with coworkers?

Playing games on Zoom with your coworkers is a great way to connect with your remote team. You may want to try some hosted team building activities, e.g. Yolking from Home, a TV-game-show-themed competition with six types of engaging games. You can opt for a workshop, e.g. make your own scented candle during a Candle Making Class or mix your own cocktails during Cocktails Around the World. And if you’re looking for something thrilling, you may enjoy Jury Duty, where your team will act as a jury on a murder trial!
