Hosting a Zoom meeting with a large number of participants can be tough. Adding a co-host to your session allows you to share host privileges, letting them take some of the workload like managing participants and screen sharing. Here’s how it’s done.

Before you can add a co-host to a Zoom video conference, you’ll need to enable the setting. To do this, head over to the Zoom web portal, sign in to your Zoom account, and then select the “Settings” tab.
You’ll now be in the Meeting tab of the Settings menu. Here, scroll down until you find the “Co-Host” option.
With this enabled, the host can now assign a co-host to a meeting. The co-host has the same in-meeting controls as the host. However, a co-host can’t start meetings scheduled by the host.
To assign a participant as a co-host, you’ll first need to select the “Manage Participants” button at the bottom of the conference call window during a Zoom call.
A list of participants will appear in the right-hand pane. Here, hover over the name of the participant you wish to make the co-host and select the “More” option.
From the menu that appears, select “Make Co-Host.”
A pop-up message will appear confirming that you want to make this participant the co-host of your meeting. Select the “Yes” button to proceed.
Verify that the selected participant has the (Co-host) label next to their name.
