The 6 most common Zoom issues and how to fix them

Zoom is one of the most popular video conferencing tools out there and is fairly easy to use. But it has its share of issues and vulnerabilities that often leave users frustrated. Luckily, most of them can be fixed within minutes. We’ve rounded up the most common Zoom problems currently causing problems for users and provided detailed instructions on how to solve them. None of the fixes require any technical knowledge, so you don’t have to be a computer wiz to get the job done. Zoom issue #1: Camera or audio doesn’t work Did you join a meeting and can’t hear anyone? If so, you probably closed the window that popped up before you logged into a meeting.

Here are ten things I think the V60 does extremely well and five more things I think it could improve.
