Using & Downloading ZOOM

 
 
 
 
Pastor Bruce has mentioned a few times about us trying ZOOM for all of us to talk to each other. On Monday evening, he said that if there were some of you who downloaded it, perhaps we could try it out on Wednesday night.  ZOOM is an application that allows you to talk with another and/or have “virtual meetings.” It is free to use. The free version allows for about 40 minutes of talk time. 
 
Before using ZOOM, here are the things you need to do:
 
1. Go to the website and sign up for an account. It says use your “work email address.” That very much can also be your personal email address. You can also sign up using your Facebook or Google account.
 
2. Download ZOOM.
You can also download ZOOM in the GOOGLE PLAY STORE for Android Phones and also in the APPLE STORE. In the GOOGLE PLAY STORE, it can be found under ” ZOOM CLOUD MEETINGS.” If you download the ZOOM App in Google Play Store or Apple Store, once you download it, it will probably prompt you to create an account or sign in…. If you already did step 1, you should just need to sign in. 
 
3. Send Pastor Bruce your email address that you would like him to send your ZOOM invite to. (if you want to participate).
 
4. Pastor Bruce will send  you an invite to the ZOOM conference once he opens up the room. You then will open that email and click on the link provided. That will take you to the “virtual conference room.” 
 
5. Using ZOOM. When you begin using ZOOM, make sure there is NOT A LINE CROSSED out through the little MIC picture on the bottom of the screen. That will allow your device to capture your audio. If there is a line crossed through it, click it to uncross it. For VIDEO, if there is a line crossed out through the little video icon, click it to uncross it to show video (if you want to)… I think Bruce also has the option to black out your screen if you don’t want video to be shown. 
 
6. Should you have any questions about use, you can call Ariana or Pastor Bruce.
