 +===== How do Video Calls Work? =====
 +
 +<WRAP round tip>
 +The calls last 40 mins after which you can re-join (using same id and password/​link) for as long at it takes, to participate,​ members need a mobile phone, tablet or a PC / Mac with a camera and microphone. ​
 +
 +Calls are scheduled in advance and are held on the last Saturday/​Sunday of the month sometime both days depending on the subjects. Topics are agreed in advance with any suggestion more than welcome. ​
 +
 +When it is time to start a call, a voice and video conference is opened up which has thumbnails of each video participant and any shared presentations or desktops. The call leader facilitates the call and the discussions and tries to get through the agenda in a relaxed manner. Zoom has two views available. The first is the speaker view which selects the video stream from the person speaking. The second is Gallery view which shows streams from all participants.
 +
 +If you would like to try out Zoom, then there is a test meeting service where you are the only participant and you can experiment with the various options available.
