Joining a meeting with the invite link
You may receive a Zoom meeting invite link through an email, calendar invitation, or directly from the meeting host. The invite link is a web address that includes the meeting ID and can oftentimes include an embedded passcode, allowing participants to join more quickly. When you join a meeting by clicking the invite link, your web browser will open, display a message that the meeting will open in the Zoom app, and display a dialog box to launch the Zoom application on your device.
Learn more about additional ways to join a meeting, including how to join without installing Zoom on your device.
This article covers:
How to join a meeting using the join link
- Click the invite link or copy and paste the link into a web browser.
The web browser will redirect you to the launch meeting page. A pop-up will ask if you want to open Zoom Meetings.
- (Optional) Select the check box if you want to always allow Zoom to open links of this type in the associated app.
Note: This option is only available on select browsers.
- Click Open.
The Zoom app will open and direct you to the meeting.
Note: This button may say something else, such as Allow or Open zoom.us, depending on the web browser and device you are on.
How to troubleshoot the Zoom Launcher plug-in
On some occasions, the plugins may not be activated, disabled, not correctly installed, or installed correctly but failed to run. Check if the Zoom launcher plugin is enabled (re-enable if it was disabled).
Safari no longer supports most plug-ins. You will need to choose to launch Zoom each time.
