Joining via your browser

If for some reason you are unable to download or install the Zoom meeting launcher, you can also join the screensharing session via your web browser. For this, we strongly recommend that you use Google Chrome (or other Chromium-based browsers, such as the new Microsoft Edge), as joining the meeting audio and other functionality may not work in Firefox or other browsers.
