Attending a meeting on Zoom is always free. You simply click the link (with the meeting ID) to join. In fact, you can get a free account if you want to host one-on-one meetings, or wish to host group meetings (up to 100 attendees) that last no longer than 40 minutes. It’s a great Skype alternative if you want to do more than face-to-face chat. With Zoom, you can also share web pages, documents on your computer (app share) and text chat with individual participants or the whole group at once.
