Zoom meetings can be started and joined through the Zoom web client (a browser) without downloading plugins or software. However, Zoom runs optimally when downloading the Zoom desktop client (app). Regardless of how you connect to Zoom, it is important to review system requirements for your device to ensure that you will be able to use Zoom.
Zoom Web Client
The web client can help users who are limited in what they can install or download, allowing them to use their web browser and join Zoom meetings without downloading the application. By default, participants joining through the web client do not need to be signed in to a Zoom account.
