Want to attend two zoom meetings at a time?

If so, here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

Step-by-Step Guide

Note: To join multiple meetings simultaneously, you need to access Zoom via a browser instead of the application on your computer or phone.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Opening Zoom in the browser and signing in.
  2. Tap on the “Join” a Meeting button.

In the “Join a Meeting” screen, you will see an option to “Join with Computer Audio.” You can also change your audio and video settings from here.

Once you have joined the first meeting, start your second meeting by:

Step1: Going back to the main screen in the Zoom website on your browser

Step2: Tapping on the “Join” a Meeting button again

Step3: Entering the ID for your second meeting

You should now be in both meetings at the same time! If you want to leave one of the meetings, just tap on “End Call” for that particular meeting.

You can also adjust your audio and video settings while in the meeting by tapping on the “…”More button.”
For reference:

Can I Be In Two or More Concurrent Zoom Meetings?

Yes, you can be in two or more concurrent Zoom meetings by using app and web browser.

Here are the steps to be followed:

  • Launch the app and Join the first meeting (app allows only one meeting at a time).
  • Enable the option “Join different meetings simultaneously on desktop” by going to account settings in-app.

For further concurrent meetings open the web browser(s) and navigate to and enter meeting ID.

Who can Host Concurrent Zoom Meetings?

Being able to host multiple meetings at the same time is called hosting concurrent meetings. If you want to be able to do this, it will depend on what kind of account and license you have.

Type of accountNumber of Zoom Meetings they can hostNumber of Zoom Meetings they can attend
Basic12 (On browser only)
Pro12 (On browser only)
Business22 (On browser only)
Education2 (On browser only)
Enterprise2 (On browser only)

Both Basic and Licensed pro users are limited to hosting only 1 meeting at any given time.

Up to two meetings can be hosted at the same time on Business, Education, and Enterprise accounts. Both meetings need to originate from the original meeting host or an alternative host; although, the host can exit the meeting and pass privileges along to another user if necessary. 

Although they are allowed to host two active meetings at a time by default, these users are unable to join multiple meetings simultaneously on the desktop app.(They should also use Zoom on the browser for this purpose.)

Common issues with concurrent meetings

One of the most common issues that people have with concurrent meetings is that they are not able to hear what is going on in each meeting. So, here is the list of some possible potential problems:

  • However, it is recommended to join or host no more than 2 meetings at a time. Meeting quality may degrade if you have too many meetings running at the same time.
  • Additionally, your computer’s processing power and bandwidth may be taxed if you’re in multiple meetings.
  • If possible, use a wired Ethernet connection to improve meeting quality and reliability.


If you are looking for a way to maximize your time and productivity, attending two Zoom meetings simultaneously may be the answer. With just a few simple steps, you can join two or more concurrent Zoom meetings without any problems.

However, before trying this out for yourself, be sure to read through our list of common issues with concurrent Zoom meetings so that you can be prepared for any potential problems. Have you tried joining multiple Zoom meetings at once?
