Zoom: Maximum number of attendees

Postby ulupoi » Wed Jan 13, 2021 3:50 am

Hello. May I ask a few questions?

With the new Church-sponsored Zoom account, the maximum number of attendees is listed as 500 and two meetings can run at the same time if they are started from separate devices. If two meetings are run simultaneously, is the maximum 500 per meeting or 500 total?

Could a unit upgrade their Church-sponsored Zoom account to get more attendees and more features?

Does the Church-sponsored Zoom account support simultaneous translation?

You can have 500 per meeting or webinar.

Probably not. That would be a lot of work for the church to manage different configurations. You can accommodate more participants by streaming the meeting/webinar over Youtube Live, Facebook Live, etc. We just did that this past Sunday for our stake conference.

Yes. We use that feature for our Spanish ward. You need to enable it in the account settings and then you can configure languages and add interpreters to your meetings/webinars.
