Meetings versus Webinars

Zoom Meetings and Webinars are very similar but have distinct differences in purpose. See the comparison table below for detailed features and functionality.

Meetings are collaborative events with all attendees able to screen share, turn on video and audio, and see who else is present. Host and audience interaction is in a many-to-many format.

Webinars allow attendees to view and hear the presenter, ask questions, and respond to polls. This is a controlled environment. Host and audience interaction is in a one-to-many format.
