Our Opinion:

The culture of an online meeting, work from home, online teaching and online classroom is increasing day by day and it is going to be the future of the digital world.

There are many applications in which you can opt for virtual meetings with their advantages and disadvantages. Looking at Zoom I can say that it is a great platform and a must to try option if you are looking for online video conferencing platforms. It is a fantastic platform for hosting one on one meetings with clients and co-workers.

Recently some privacy issues were found with Zoom looking at which some places market it as unsafe for use. But it is a very rare scenario and probably the company has been working on this issue.

Other than that it is a perfect platform for usage and a must to use option.
