Note: As our world comes together to slow the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, the Zoom Support Center has continued to operate 24x7 globally to support you. Please see the updated Support Guidelines during these unprecedented times.

Important: Starting September 27, Zoom will require that all meetings have a Passcode or a Waiting Room enabled for accounts with a single licensed user, Pro accounts with 2 or more licenses, and Business accounts with 10-100 licenses. For further information, please reference our Frequently Asked Questions.



Google Calendar add-on Follow

Overview

With the Zoom for Google Calendar add-on, you can seamlessly schedule, join, and manage meetings right from Google Calendar.

After installing the add-on, you can use it on Google Calendar desktop or on the mobile app (Android or iOS). You can also schedule for another user with scheduling privilege. 

Note:

  • You cannot install the add-on if you are signed in to multiple Google accounts. Only sign in to the account that you want to install the add-on for.
  • When using the add-on, make sure you are not signing in to multiple Google accounts with the add-on installed. This will cause issues when scheduling Zoom meetings using the add-on.
  • For further integration with Google Calendar, set up contacts and calendar integration.
