We're Going To Try A Zoom Class Reunion Meeting-Class of '62-We're Old-? For You Zoom Experts....

A couple of our senior citizen classmates don't have access to a computer. Is there a Zoom phone app available so they could use their phones to join our Zoom Meeting? If so, what is it called and where can I tell them they could download it from? Does it work well or will they get frustrated using it?

1. Zoom is easy to use, however...

You must have a password or the trolls will overrun your get together.
Enjoy!

3. You can attend a Zoom meeting via a regular phone. Just get the dial in number and passcode.

4. Do You Need To Have A Zoom App On Your Phone?.....

If so - where do you acquire that app to download it?

6. No, just a regular push button phone. It doesn't even have to be a smart phone. Just dial the

zoom call in number and the recorded voice will ask you to enter the pass code, and you are in. You can hear everyone and they can hear you., you just can't see anyone. Just like a large conference call. Enjoy.

5. It is possible.

It won't work on a flip-phone...you have to join the modern age. That was the first step for me anyway. I acquired a Motorola--mainly because I liked the price (free).

Using Chrome, I downloaded the Zoom app and then just followed the on-line instructions.

Got laughed at a lot. But the damn thing worked.

10. What I Liked About Flip Phones Is....

they were small/compact. Fit in the pocket perfectly. And - you couldn't butt dial with one.
