Joint Host Control in a Zoom Webinar

With co-host

The joint hosting feature allows a host to share hosting privileges with other users in the webinar.
This feature is useful when another user is in control of the webinar’s operational aspects, such as muting participants and starting / stopping recordings.
The host needs to specify a co-host during the webinar. It can not be assigned in advance.

See Enabling And Adding A Co-Host for instructions on enabling and using co-hosts .

Before setting up a co-host

  • Co-host function enabled for host account
  • Joint host control assigned by host
