Blizz is a tool developed by the renowned makers of TeamViewer. To get a better understanding of Blizz, we will start with TeamViewer. TeamViewer lets you remotely control a PC from another PC therefore, it is basically a remote PC control program. TeamViewer was launched back in 2005 and it focuses on cloud-based technologies to enable online support and collaborate across the globe in real time. Users across the world have collectively used TeamViewer to accomplish their goals which would have been impossible with respect to time and distance constraints. TeamViewer data dictates that every day, 750,000 new ID’s are created. More than 30 languages are supported by TeamViewer.

Unique ID –
There is a unique ID for each device which will be required to join in or initiate virtual meetings. This unique identifier determines meetings. When you sign up in the official portal of Blizz, you will receive a personal meeting ID. This personal meeting ID is not dynamic, but static in nature which means it won’t change and there will be only one unique ID for each device. When you initiate a meeting, your personal meeting ID will be automatically used and others will be able to join the meeting initiated by you using this ID. You can simply join an ongoing virtual meeting with the help of this ID when the meeting is initiated by someone else and you are invited to it. On the other hand, if you schedule a meeting, an altogether unique meeting ID will be generated which can be used to join in it. An altogether different ID will be used if you are not logged into your Blizz account but start a spontaneous meeting.
