Zoom on WebSource: iMore

When the time comes when you no longer need the Zoom video conference service because you're not working from home anymore, it's easy to delete the app on Mac and iOS. The service, which lets you connect to other users remotely, has become a popular tool during this moment of crisis.

Because it's available across multiple platforms and free for small groups, Zoom has become a popular choice during the pandemic. It allows you to remotely connect with family, friends, and business associates from anywhere. When the crisis ends (which is hopefully soon), the time might come to delete Zoom.
