How can I make free international calls with Zoom?

Whether it’s a one-to-one call or a conference call with multiple people, you can use Zoom to talk internationally at no cost. No Zoom account is needed for the remote participants and they can use any internet-connected device. The only information needed to establish a call is your Personal Meeting ID.

How do I add a Co-Host to my meeting?

The Co-Host feature will allow you to assign another user in the meeting hosting privileges. This can be useful to allow another user to manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as muting participants or starting/stopping the recording.

Check this page to learn all about Co-Hosts.
