It's like a flip phone, you can make calls but that's about it

Even I'm on team Zoom when Dan blamed me for the "campaign" to stop Zoom, and my 3 year old got to watch a guy undress himself and urinate in a Zoom bomb.

Google will add features to meet. The first priority was getting it out there.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The free version for the public launched this week. Lots of resources have been redirected to it as they smell blood in the water.

A backlash against China can also hurt zoom.

You know I was kidding, right? There's no way I would pass up the chance to dunk on you.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

FYI it defaults to standard definition and you can enable high definition in settings. Something to do with COVID and not overwhelming the global internet capacity (same for YouTube, Nest, etc).

What's the max definition on zoom? Also seems pretty blurry

On a desktop ,yes it's blurry. But when using a mobile phone so much clearer I must say.

On YouTube it's usually set to auto.
