Can I be in two or more concurrent Zoom meetings?

Yes, with some limitations.

First, whether you are joining concurrent meetings as a participant or as the host, you must use:

  • a desktop (macOS or Windows) Zoom client
  • a recent version of that desktop Zoom meeting client (See: Updating the Zoom client)

You cannot use the web (in-browser) client, the Chromebook client, or a mobile (e.g. iPad, smartphone) client.

Your computer may prevent you from using a single webcam in multiple meetings.

Further limitations, including the number of concurrent meetings you can be in, depend upon whether you are a participant or the host.

Concurrent meetings as a participant

You can participate in two or more concurrent Zoom meetings.

The number of meetings you can join may be limited by factors such as:

  • the available bandwidth of your Internet connection
  • your computer's processing power
  • your own ability to juggle watching, listening to, and muting/unmuting yourself in multiple meetings

Concurrent meetings as a host

You can host up to two Zoom meetings at a time. To do so you must:

  • be the original host (the creator) of both meetings
  • be the one to start both meetings
  • not be an alternative host in either meeting

You cannot host more than two concurrent Zoom meetings.
