What is the difference between a Zoom Webinar and a Meeting?

Meetings are designed to be a collaborative event, with all participants being able to scree share, turn on their video and audio, and see who else is in attendance. Webinars are designed so the host and any designated panellists can share their video, audio and screen. Webinars allow view-only attendees, who have the ability to interact via Q+A, chat, and answering polling questions. A full comparison is available on the Zoom support site.
