Zoom URL Schemes

Let’s take a quick look at the URL schemes that we expose today — we get frequent questions on this topic.

By default, it’s your responsibility as the app developer to let your users download and install the client package from zoom.us. Or you can distribute the client page by your channel.

If a user doesn’t install zoom.us client pre-starting or joining a meeting, you should be aware that a pop up browser windows which detect your current installation and decide to install or update zoom.us client on your machine.

If all of your users have installed zoom clients, you can use the “zoomus:” protocol instead of “https:” to start the zoom.us application. The benefit of the zoomus protocol is that your users will not be brought to another page to start or join a meeting.

Protocol Examples
