As time rolls on, new technology grows up and overrides older technology. From Alexander Graham Bell’s first practical telephone to the latest smartphones, everywhere you look the evolution to new technology is inevitable. This is how WebRTC, the next generation of web-based communication has taken its place in the world of real-time communication.

We have rebuilt Zoho Meeting from the ground up to adapt to the latest real-time communication technology. This makes it possible to offer better real-time communication in our online meeting tool, such as internet calling with computer audio, video collaboration, and sharing your screen/application right from your browser. We have also enhanced the application’s speed and reliability, improved usability with a refreshing new UI, added new features such as meeting recording, RSVP scheduling, and much more.

Host meetings completely from your browser

If you’re using a modern browser that supports WebRTC, you don’t have to download an app to host meetings. Now both the presenter and the participants can join an online meeting right from their browser. Talk to your participants with VoIP, turn on your webcam for video collaboration, share your screen or application to give a presentation, and chat with your participants to make things more interactive. Don’t worry if you are using an older browser — all you need is a one-time plugin to host your online meeting.

Seamless screen sharing and changing presenters

Now you don’t have to use Windows or Mac to take advantage of screen sharing. With our transition to WebRTC, any operating system lets you share your screen. You can share either your entire screen or any specific application with your participants. We have recently introduced our iOS app to let you share your screen from your iPhone or iPad as well. If you want to let another participant take over the presentation, no problem — they can start sharing their screen with one click and no download hassles. 

Easy video meetings

Turn on your webcam to make face-to-face video calls or bring life to your meeting. You’ll also find intuitive controls to turn the video on or off, and mute your microphone. If it’s a bad day for video conferencing, just turn off your webcam and talk to your participants using VoIP.

There are many more things happening at Zoho Meeting. Here’s a complete list of what we have updated recently.

    Just hosted a meeting and could not locate the recording control. Could you please enlighten me on where the recording control is? Thanks, Ari

      Sorry Ari, missed your comment.
      You can see the recording button on the presenter toolbar once you start your meeting. Right now, the recorded session will be emailed to you once it is ready to view. You can download it to your local computer or share the link with your participants directly. We are working on listing all your recordings inside the Zoho Meeting portal itself.

    Does Zoho Meeting even work on a Google Chrome Laptop? Also, what’s the difference between Meeting and Showtime as they seem very much the same.
