Using a Windows PC that features a touchscreen, you can install the Zoom Rooms software and use a touch screen controller to start or join a meeting, or if you prefer, you can use a separate iPad or Android controller to start or join a meeting. There is also a whiteboard included in Zoom Rooms for Touch as well. A whiteboard session can be started, and then invited to a meeting where others will be able to view and annotate the whiteboard as you go.

Features

It’s easy to access the functionality of Zoom Rooms for Touch through the Home screen, which includes controls for starting and joining meetings, accessing the integrated whiteboard, and accessing instructions for others to share their screens in the meeting with you. It is also possible to find a list of meetings scheduled for the room in the Home screen if the room is associated with a calendar resource. Whenever a Zoom meeting is listed in the meeting list, you will find a START button that can be used to start the meeting, if there is one scheduled. A meeting controller is also available once a meeting is started, so you have access to that tool after the meeting has been started.
