The answer is yes, and this blog post will show you how. First, let’s start with some basics about Zoom meetings. A Zoom meeting is a video conference that allows participants to see and hear each other in real time. It can be used for both personal and business purposes, and can include up to 100 participants.
You can also share your screen, which is great for presentations or demonstrating products or services. Now that we know more about Zoom meetings, let’s learn how to run multiple ones at the same time.
It’s also possible to start two or more Zoom meetings in Windows at the same time. For example, you might want to be able to conduct a presentation while following along with another video conference. This is possible when both meetings are started in your computer’s browser. There are other ways for multiple Zoom meetings to be run on one computer, but this blog post will only discuss how it can be done using the browser. Here are some instructions that will get you started:
1) Once logged into your Google account, click on the little arrow next to your picture in the upper right corner of your screen and select “Start a new meeting.”
2) Verify which window has access audio/video devices by clicking on it and selecting “Share my screen.”
3) In the new meeting window, click on “Start a new meeting” and input the desired information.
4) When the new meeting pops up in your Zoom meeting list, switch to that window and start the meeting.
5) You can also open multiple browsers and have different meetings running in each one.
Recurring meetings with URL
There are two benefits to using this setting. First, it lets you lock in all the call settings you want once and have them be in place every time you meet. Second, recurring calls use the same join URL each time, so you never have to send a fresh one to attendees.
Additionally, if you meet with the same group regularly but not on a regular schedule, you can choose an option called No Fixed Time, which lets you use the same settings and meeting ID over and over with the same group, no matter when you get together. This option is popular with educational groups who use Zoom as their virtual classroom.
Share your screen
Share your screen for a Zoom meeting (or to watch a movie or play a game) with other participants by clicking the Share screen icon on the toolbar at the bottom of the meeting screen. You’ll have the option to share your entire desktop, or just one of the windows you have open. Click the red Stop Share button at the top of the screen to go back to being a normal participant in the meeting.
Host more than 100 people
If you have a Zoom account, you can host up to 100 people in separate Zoom meetings simultaneously.
To do this:
1) Click the “Meeting” tab at the top of your Zoom window.
2) Click the “Start a Meeting” button.
3) Enter the meeting information and click “Create Meeting.”
4) On the next page, under “Attendees,” click the “Invite Others” button.
5) Enter the email addresses of the people you want to invite and click “Send Invites.”
6) The people you invited will receive an email with a link to join your meeting.
7) When they click the link, they’ll be taken to a page where they can enter the meeting password (if you included one).
8) They’ll then be able to join your meeting.
To host more than 100 people in separate Zoom meetings simultaneously, you’ll need to upgrade to a Zoom Pro account.
Now that you know how to run multiple Zoom meetings at once, it’s time to experiment and see what works best for you. With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to manage all of your meetings like a pro! For more tips and tricks on using Zoom, be sure to check out our blog post archive. Thanks for reading!
