Advantages of using Zoom on tablet devices and smartphones ①
The advantage of using Zoom on your tablet or smartphone is that you don’t have to prepare any additional equipment.
If you want to use Zoom with a computer, you need to prepare a webcam, microphone, and speakers. Zoom cannot be used without these.
However, tablet devices and smartphones do not need this. Tablet terminals and smartphones have a telephone function and a videophone function, and can also be used when using Zoom.
Therefore, if you have a tablet device or smartphone, the device itself is ready. It’s really easy!
Recently, an increasing number of people do not have a personal computer and only have a tablet terminal or a smartphone. According to data from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the PC ownership rate has been declining from 87.2% in 2009 to 73% in 2016.
If Zoom can only be used on a PC, the market may narrow in the long run, but it is a big point that it can also be used on smartphones.

The benefits of using Zoom with a tablet or smartphone are not limited to device preparation.
The fact that you can use them to zoom means that you can use them anywhere. The degree of freedom is more than that of a personal computer.
Tablets and smartphones are smaller than laptops, and it’s no exaggeration to say that they fit in your pocket.
Considering the size of the screen itself, some tablet terminals are not much different from laptop computers. However, the thinness of the device itself and the convenience of charging will make the tablet terminal more competitive.
It can be said that tablet terminals and smartphones, which are more convenient to carry, will further expand the borderlessness of conference rooms by Zoom.

Also, change the name if necessary. When you’re done, select Join. You can now participate.
If you enter it correctly, you can join the meeting. When using for the first time, the terminal will ask for permission to connect the camera and microphone, so allow each.
If you don’t allow this, you may only see a black screen when Zoom is running. be careful.

For tablet devices and smartphones, you may receive the URL of the meeting by e-mail or LINE.
In that case, you can also copy the last number of the URL and enter it from the app. But honestly it’s a hassle.
If you receive the URL, just step on the URL. Then, the terminal side will request to start Zoom.
If you allow Zoom to start, the Zoom app will start automatically. You will then be prompted for a name to use in the meeting (first time only). After completing this input, access to the meeting is complete.
