What are Zoom Apps and why would you use them?

Just last month, Zoom announced the release of Zoom Apps. According to Zoom, Zoom Apps is “a new type of in-product integration that lets you bring your favorite apps right into your Zoom meetings.” Essentially, this enables you to install apps developed by a third party, similar to the way you can download and install apps on your smartphone or tablet.

As we’ve discussed in many different blog posts, Video Conferencing is not a fading trend and Zoom has established itself as a top contender for video conferencing platforms. The integration of third-party apps will likely continue that by enabling a more efficient, fun, and engaging video conferencing experience.

Why should you consider using Zoom Apps?

Depending on the app you decide to utilize, you gain the potential to create a more efficient meeting by collaborating in real-time with Dropbox, create in-meeting action items, next steps, assign tasks, and more all without leaving your meeting. If your goal is to enhance your meeting with a little fun and engaging entertainment, you can utilize apps like “Heads Up!” the infamous Ellen DeGeneres game, or “Kahoot!”, which provides interactive learning games and presentations within your Zoom meetings.

Additionally, there are apps geared towards educators, health and wellness, and more. Considering Zoom’s popularity in a variety of industries, it’s a safe assumption that we’ll see a variety of third-party app developers continuing to create new apps with a plethora of features intended for a wide array of industries and uses.

Interested in giving Zoom Apps a try?

  1. Make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of Zoom. 
  2. Open Zoom and click the Apps tab in the desktop client or the toolbar of your next Zoom Meeting. For some accounts, users may need admins to enable the Zoom Apps icon in the account settings for it to be visible in the desktop client and meeting toolbar.
  3. Click Discover to see the list of available Zoom Apps and add your favorites.
