I received a link to a zoom meeting, now what?
In 2020, “Zoom” was the 9th most searched word on Google in Portugal. We are not surprised, many people still don't know what this platform is or how to use it. Whether it's for professional meetings, for a chat with friends without the risk of transmitting the coronavirus or for seeing family members, Zoom is the tool you need! It became popular around the world due to the imposition of teleworking and online classes as a preventive measure against the pandemic and went from 10 million people enrolled to over 300 million daily users in less than 1 year!
This change was so sudden that there was no time for companies to give training on how to use Zoom and a large part of the population has not yet been introduced to this tool of the future. But video conferences are here to stay, regardless of whether we physically return to the office or to classes. If you still don't know what to do when you receive a link to a meeting, it's not too late! Let's explain step by step what to do when you receive a message or email like this:
