・Preparing the usage environment for video conferencing/video meeting

You need a camera, a speaker and a microphone to use video conferencing with Zoom. Video conferencing is possible without using a webcam, however we recommend using it to ensure smooth communication. Although Zoom can be used with built-in cameras, speakers and microphones to PCs and Smartphones, it is highly recommended to use a headset because the built-in microphone easily picks up noise and environmental noise that causes howling.
