Instructions for creating a conference on your phone in Zoom

18 October 2023

It has long been possible to easily communicate with friends, colleagues at any time and from any corner of the world. And various trainings, webinars and meetings are now successfully conducted online. All that is needed for this is modern software, such as the Zoom program. Many who are partially familiar with it on a PC are wondering how to create a conference in Zoom on a phone. The application has such an opportunity, and the process is no more complicated than starting a meeting on a computer. 

The developers managed to create a mobile service that functions perfectly and provides access to the necessary functions. It provides high-quality video communication, makes it possible to communicate with several dozen participants at once and remotely monitor the process. If you haven’t worked with the app on your smartphone yet and haven’t organized conferences, we’ll tell you how to do it.

The easiest way is to use a ready-made function of the official application. It can be found on the main page of the site. With this choice, the service will create a private conversation by default, and you will have to invite other participants manually. 

The process is as follows:

  1. To create a new conversation, open the messenger, and then the mobile client.
  2. In the “Home” tab at the bottom of the screen, click on the inscription “New conference”.
  3. Change the settings for using the personal ID/autotranslation of the image from the device’s camera (if required).
  4. Click “Start”.

As a result, you will be able to create the simplest call, where only you will be among the participants. This method makes it possible to change some settings in advance. After you have created a conference in Zoom on your phone, you can invite other users. You can do this by clicking on the “Invite” button in the “Participants” section. There you can select the necessary contacts or send notifications in another way.

If you want to exit the conversation, just click on “End” in the upper right part of the screen. You can end the call only for yourself or for all participants.

It is important to understand that within the framework of a group call, the rights of the organizer belong to the user who created the conference even when there is an administrator.

Also, the creator of the channel has the right to prohibit group calls to other participants through the settings.

Using the Zoom mobile client, you can make private calls, as with other messengers. At the same time, you can always invite other participants if you wish.

The method with an individual call is almost completely identical to the previous one. 

The only exception is that there will be several users in the conference at once.

The process of creating a conversation is as follows:

  1. Prepare contact details for subsequent calls in the Zoom – the “Contacts” tab, the “+” icon in the upper right part of the screen, the choice of a convenient invitation method. Then follow the instructions – specify the email address.
  2. In the “Contacts” tab, select “External” and click on the desired interlocutor once. In the profile card, you can start a video or audio meeting.

If we compare with the previously considered method, then in this case the main interface of the conversation will not be available until the user answers the call. Similarly to phone calls, a long absence of an answer/pressing “End” will result in resetting the call and sending an alert to the subscriber. But there is an exception. It concerns a situation when a call is made from “Contacts” to several participants at the same time. This option is possible if you use the video meeting button on a separate tab. Then the notification will come to each participant of the channel who immediately joined. Otherwise, this will not happen without a repeated personal invitation.

As described earlier, after connecting to the conference, call management does not differ from a chat that was created differently. This applies to the function of inviting new people in the “Participants” tab.

There are cases when users are delayed connecting, although an online meeting should have already started. To avoid such unpleasant moments, the application allows you to create a new conversation at a set time. We are talking about the built-in layout function. It also allows participants to attend an online meeting at any time for a pre-determined duration, and not only after a personal invitation. The control is exactly the same as in the other options discussed above. The only thing is that after you create a conference in Zoom on your phone, remember to automatically block the invitation link. Its access is limited – you can use it exactly until the end of the meeting by timer.
