Co-Host (Zoom)

What Does Co-Host Mean on Zoom?

On the video conferencing app Zoom, a Co-Host is an assistant to the host of a meeting. The Co-Host feature allows the host to share hosting privileges with an unlimited number of other users. A Co-Host on Zoom can manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as managing participants or starting/stopping the recording. However, Co-Hosts do not have access to all host controls and cannot start a meeting. (If a host needs someone else to be able to start the meeting, they can assign an Alternative Host.)
