All our sync-up meetings will be via Zoom. You do not need to install anything to use Zoom, but the meeting security restrictions will require you sign up for a Zoom account.

It’s optional to install the Zoom app, but it definitely offers a better experience, so I recommend doing so. If you’re installing Zoom on your laptop or desktop computer, you want to download the Zoom Client for Meetings:

Alternately, you can also install Zoom on iOS and Android devices:

All our meetings will also be accessible via the Zoom web client ✳️ which does not require you to install any additional software.
