Not to worry. With Zoom becoming incredibly popular these days
many people are discovering it and are using it for the first
time and so you are not alone in being new to it.
It is not necessary to have a camera when participating in a
Zoom meeting. Technically, you can even join a Zoom meeting
without even having a microphone although it means you'll just
be able to listen to others in the meeting. For a PC or Mac I
personally recommend a headset with an attached microphone. With
your iPhone you already have a mic and camera as it uses the
ones which are already part of the phone.
Whether you participate in a Zoom meeting with a computer or
with your iPhone you should first download the Zoom program,
which is free of cost.
For the iPhone you can find it by going to the app store on
your device and searching for Zoom Cloud Meetings.
For a PC you can go to this link and
look for the heading labeled
Zoom Client for Meetings
and download that program to your computer.
Once it's been downloaded you'll need to open your Downloads
folder and run the installer.
If you're interested I just started a discussion list for
people to ask questions specific to Zoom. I will warn you that
the list is currently generating a large amount of message
traffic but you will likely get answers to your questions very
quickly. You could always unsubscribe later once you feel that
you've got enough information to get you started.

Everybody seems to be doing Zoom

Is Zoom an app? Am I better off
doing it on the phone, since it has a camera? Do I have to
do anything special on the phone to make this work—like
turning off the screen curtain or some other setting? I
admit to being a rank amateur here.

can do it from the desk top app any longer. I changed my

Sonos with my Apple Music subscription which essentially
is my Apple ID. I did it right within the app on my phone.

I hear what you say
but I am sure there was an item in Sonos on my iPhone 7
which said something like “music on this iPhone”. I do
not know what is the use of the sonos app if I can only
stream radio stations and music from my pc. Maybe I am
just stupid but the sonos support people make it so
difficult to ask for support that it is not worth while
all the trouble. A shame for a company with such
excellent but expensive products.
I don't think you can. You can use
airplay to play that which is on your phone through
Sonos but I don't think you can get music resident on
your phone to show up within the Sonos app. If I'm
incorrect I'm sure others will chime in but this is the
only way I've known it to be. o you're correct you can
add the library you might have on a pc or networked
drive as long as it's powered on it can be accessed but
I do not believe the same holds true for the phone.
Take good care.

I loaded lots of music on my new iPhone 11. Now I installed the Sonos app
and it piciked up my sonos system but it just shows radio stations but no
music on my phone. In system settings there is an option to add folders but
one has to type a name, so I assume that is for folders on a pc which runs
sonos. How do I get sonos to see the music on my iPhone?
