Tips for a Successful 1st Zoom WAGS Membership Meeting
Have you used Zoom before on your device?
This means you may have already downloaded an APP to your device. It looks like this.
App seen on a Mac, smart phone or I pad (It may be different for Windows)
Check to make sure that you have the most recent version of Zoom installed Version 5.1.2(28648.0705). If not, update it the same as you would any other app you have installed on your computer, tablet or smart phone. In the upper left hand corner click on zoom.us and then click "check for updates".
