What's a Zoom Meeting? What's a Zoom Webinar?

This article applies to: Zoom


A meeting is a Zoom event where one person hosts and all other participants have equal footing. The host can share hosting responsibilities with other participants. Any participant can share their screen. Meetings can have up to 300 participants (up to 500 with a large meeting license).

A webinar is a more controlled environment. While there is no minimum size for a webinar, many more people can attend (up to 1,000 with appropriate licensing). Webinar roles are separated into panelists (as well as hosts/co-host) who are able to present in the webinar, and attendees who can join in live polling, and Q&A.
