Zoom Webinars are used for one-to-many communication. Typically, webinars have one or more panelists and view-only attendees.

Webinar features include:

  • Content Sharing, Audio and Video features exclusively for Panelists.

  • Capacity for 3,000 view-only attendees by default.

  • Attendee interaction features, including optional Q&A boxes and Polls.

How are Zoom Webinars different from Meetings?

Zoom Meetings are designed to be collaborative with participants able to turn on their video and audio, screen share, and see who else is in attendance. In contrast, Zoom Webinars are designed so that only the host and any designated panelists can share their video, audio and screen. To learn more about Meeting vs Webinar differences, please see Zoom Support’s Zoom Meeting and Webinar comparison.
