Zoom - Host and Co-Host Controls in a Meeting
Information and links to Zoom Support about host and co-host controls in a meeting.
Host controls allow you as the host to control various aspects of a Zoom meeting, such as managing the participants.
The co-host feature allows the host to share hosting privileges with another user, allowing the co-host to manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as managing participants or starting/stopping the recording. The host must assign a co-host. There is no limitation on the number of co-hosts you can have in a meeting or webinar.
Co-hosts do not have access to the following controls as they are only available as host controls in a meeting:
- Start closed captioning and assign someone or a third-party to provide closed captioning
- Start live streaming
- End meeting for all participants
- Make another participant a co-host
- Start waiting room (co-hosts can place participants in waiting room or admit/remove participants from the waiting room)
Co-hosts also cannot start a meeting. If a host needs someone else to be able to start the meeting, they can assign an alternative host.
