The most attractive feature of Zoom is how easy it is to use. A host creates a meeting and shares a link and shares it across with people he/she wants to add. The link takes the receiver straight to the video chatbox making them join easily. A person can even join the meeting in a browser window without any need to install the app in the PC or smartphone. In the chat, a person also has the option to use any of your saved photos as a makeshift background. Just like one can put images as their background while not revealing their face during a video conference or call, people can also share the screen with the other people.
