Concurrent Zoom Meetings




Can a Meeting Host have more than one Meeting going at the same time?


Yes, up to two meetings

  • You can be the host of two meetings at one time in Zoom now
  • Both meetings need to be started by either the original meeting host or by an alternative host
  • The host can leave the meeting and pass host privileges to another user if needed
  • Note: While these users can have 2 meetings active concurrently, by default they will be unable to join multiple meetings simultaneously on the desktop client. 
  • There is currently a bug that allows for people to schedule more than two meetings concurrently.  This is a bug, and could be fixed at any time.  Please do not depend on this bug for current or future meetings, as we don't know when it will be fixed and is not a feature we will have on our account moving forward once fixed

If participants attempt to join a meeting that the host hasn't started yet, they will receive the message: "The host has another meeting in progress."

  • If the host (or alternative host) tries to start a different meeting beyond the two already in progress at the same time, they will be prompted to end the first meeting that was started
  • H.323/SIP Devices that join a meeting with join before host enabled, and the host is already hosting another meeting. When the device joins, it will be prompted for a host key for the meeting
