Sign into Zoom software on your computer

Why download Zoom software to your computer? Using the Zoom app, you can

  • Host a Zoom meeting
  • Schedule a meeting
  • Join meetings hosted by others
  • Launch a scheduled or impromptu meeting
  • See all of your scheduled meetings
  • Chat with other UW Zoom host users

Once you have installed the Zoom app on your computer, you no longer have to sign in via a web browser.

Some users choose to install the Zoom app on a meeting room computer connected to a camera, microphone and monitor. This allows you to save the password in Zoom and sign in and launch the app when you turn on the computer. Anyone using the room for a meeting can then host a meeting with remote participants.

  1. To download the Zoom software, go to  https://washington.zoom.us/download.
  2. Choose the first option on the page: Zoom Client for Meetings.
  3. Follow the steps in the Zoom download wizard.
