Why Zoho Meeting is the best alternative to Zoom?
No downloads required
Unnecessary downloads occupy drive space and make desktops vulnerable to security threats. Zoho Meeting is an online meeting solution that works well on all modern browsers. It is a great alternative to Zoom as it works without downloads and does not expose you to privacy risks.
No third-party apps
Zoho Meeting is an online meeting software built entirely by Zoho from scratch. It does not depend on any third-party apps for any of its functionalities. Zoho Meeting also will never share users' data with third parties for commercial purposes, making it a secure alternative to Zoom. We take user trust and safety seriously.
Equal table stakes
Zoho Meeting gives you all the necessary features you need to conduct an online meeting. This includes audio, video, recording, screen sharing, remote access, phone audio, chat, and moderator controls. You won't miss out on any of the features you need to have a successful online meeting if you select Zoho Meeting as your alternative to Zoom.
Meeting hosts can use moderator controls to moderate discussions. Mute individual participants or all participants during a meeting and cut background noise. Remove participants from your meeting when they are no longer required for your discussion or if they become disruptive.
Your consent is important
Zoho Meeting always requests your consent before performing important actions, like turning your web camera on or allowing another participant take control of your computer during online meetings. It does not give unnecessary privileges to meeting hosts and administrators to monitor attendees' screens, which would be a violation of privacy.
Lock your meetings to keep them safe from unexpected intruders like hackers and abusers. No one can enter a locked meeting without the permission of the meeting host, even if they have the joining link. This is another reason for you to use Zoho Meeting as your Zoom alternative.
Storage for recordings
Record important meetings without worrying about exhausting your file storage space. Zoho Meeting lets you store a fixed number of meeting recordings according to your plan, regardless of how large your recording files are.
Schedule meetings and add participants to send automated email invitations and reminders. Meeting emails contain the topic, date, time, meeting link, calendar link, and phone audio details required for participants to join meetings. You can also use the RSVP feature to track which participants will attend a meeting. This is another unique feature that makes Zoho Meeting a good Zoom alternative.
Zoho Meeting safely encrypts all your Personal Identification Information (PII). This means that Zoho Meeting cannot read or interpret any information shared during an online meeting. All transmissions take place through SSL/128-bit AES encryption protocol which is the industry standard security practice. Learn more about security and privacy in Zoho Meeting.
Zoho Meeting is reasonably priced, which makes it an affordable Zoom alternative for small businesses.. Anyone can evaluate Zoho Meeting before they subscribe, using a trial edition, which Zoom does not offer. Zoho Meeting users can conduct meetings for as long as they want even in the free edition unlike Zoom, which exerts a 40-minute cut-off limit.
Join from any device
Take meetings with you on your mobile device. Collaborate effortlessly from wherever you are using the Zoho Meeting apps for iOS and Android. Users can now sign in to their Zoho Meeting account and start meetings from the iOS app.
Integrations with other Zoho apps
Zoho Meeting is currently integrated with Zoho CRM, Zoho Bookings, and Zoho Projects. You can organize and host online meetings from these apps, and also view and share recordings without moving out of your account. Many more integrations with other Zoho Apps are in progress.

Zoho meeting works every time, which is remarkable since I work with so many clients.

If you use Zoho CRM, then this meeting process makes it so much easier to book a meeting. All the details for the meeting are already in the system. So fast and easy. Also, every operating system seems to handle this well without any glitches. I am yet to find a customer who has not been able to connect so far. Hence I am extremely happy.

Perfect for what I need, short one-on-one training for new contractors. It's quick and easy to initiate a session, and I haven't run into any technical issues.

Very useful meeting tools. As we use Zoho CRM for our CRM and accounts, it was an easy choice to use Zoho Meeting as well. Very good for remote demos.
