Multiple Zooms at the same time


I would like to know if it is possible to use one zoom account for multiple meetings that take place on the same date and time.

Yes, if you purchase a second license.

The alternative is to use breakout rooms for each meeting if that is viable for the nature of the meeting's content - that is possible with one license.


According to zoom, the answer is 'yes' but in practice, the answer is no.


I was the primary host on two meetings that started 30 minutes apart, on a Zoom One Business License, and it forced me to end the first meeting - despite multiple alternative hosts on the same account in each meeting. 

Very frustrating.

A licenced pro user or free account is limited to hosting only 1 meeting at a time.


If you schedule  a meeting with your Zoom license (meeting A)  and assign an alternative host or cohost and then you start meeting B you will stop meeting A as your licence can only be used in one meeting at a time.


The alternative host / co host is depending  on your Zoom licence being available. As soon as you start another meeting this is no longer true.


Prerequisites for hosting more than one meeting at the same time
