Zoom Rooms Controller Features Follow


Zoom Rooms must be associated with a controller,  which can be hosted on an iPad, an Android tablet/Crestron Mercury (which has the same features as an Android tablet) or a Windows 10 tablet. The only exception is for Zoom Room for Touch, which has limited controller features built into the touch screen. Zoom Rooms for Touch can function with or without a controller, but for full functionality, Zoom recommends pairing it with a controller.


The Zoom Rooms app runs on the following devices:

  • Apple iPad, iPad Pro, or iPad Mini running iOS version 7.0 or later
  • Android tablet running version 4.0 or later
    Zoom recommends that you use a device with a screen that is 7 inches or larger
  • Windows tablet running version 10.0.14393 or later
  • Crestron Mercury


Download the Zoom Rooms app for the iPad from the Apple store.

Download the Zoom Rooms app for Android from the Zoom download page or from the Google Play store.

No download is required for the Crestron Mercury. See Using the Crestron Mercury as a Zoom Rooms Controller for instructions.

Download the Zoom Rooms Windows Controller from the Microsoft Store.


The following table shows which features are available on each type of controller.

Note: The Zoom Rooms Scheduling Display is available only for iPads. The Zoom Rooms software for the Android controller and Windows controller does not support the Scheduling Display.
