Can I use Zoom Video Conferencing on my Mac and does it have an accessible iPhone app?

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi everyone,
Because of my english classes and the Coronavirus they decided to make classes online trhough Zom platform. I would like to know if I can instal it without problems on my Mac, and if it's accessible, and if there is an Iphone version, because it would be the eassiest. IN the Applestore on the Iphone, I found an app called "Zom Cloud meetings" but I'm not sure if it is the app that I mean. Someone knows something about it?, has someone used this platform on the Mac or on the Iphone?.
Many thanks in a advance and stay helthy and safe.

Yes, that's exactly the app you want. I use Zoom on my Mac and iPhone all the time, and in fact, I have a Pro account, so if you'd like to practice it, maybe I can give you my meeting ID so you can take a look inside! I'm not sure how much time I'll have during the day, but the room is always open, so come on in and take a look!

HI, many thanks. Firest at all, I will ltry with my teacher, but if I need something I will tell yo, many many thanks.
But how does it works?, I mean, I received a link form my teacher, and he tells us to click there, I don't know anything more, how about account that you tell?.
Many thanks again:

You click the link and then you'll be prompted to open Zoom. After that, you will need to enter your screen name (what will be displayed to the other participants) and probably adjust settings. You do not need an account to participate in any meetings, however, you will need one if you'd like to host a meeting.

It’s my first time using Zoom as well, and I’m already very socially anxious so not knowing what to expect is always a little hard.

Here is a list of questions I’d love to know before joining my online zoom book club meeting:
what is the layout like? Starting from the top left and swiping right what buttons or other things can I expect to be there.
When I join does my camera or microphone turn on automatically?
Are you able to send written messages instead of using a microphone?
I will be using The app on my iPhone, Are there any unlabelled buttons or tricky glitches that I should keep an eye out for?

This is all I can think of off of the top of my head. Any help you might be able to give me is very much appreciated! Thanks and stay safe

Set up the app on the phone and computer before the meeting. During the set up process you can set the video and audio not to start automatically. I have blocked my video and muted my audio so no video or audio catastrophes can happen.
