Configuring the Zoom for Chrome PWA

Last Updated:

If you're an admin that manages Chrome apps, you can configure the Zoom for Chrome PWA using the Google Admin console. This allows you to deploy the PWA to your users with exactly the install and configuration policies that suit your needs.

For more information regarding how to use the Zoom for Chrome PWA once configured and deployed, please refer to the getting started guide.

Note: The Zoom for Chrome PWA is separate from the ChromeOS app and is intended to replace it, as support for ChromeOS apps are being phased out across all operating systems by November 5, 2022. We strongly recommend admins begin migrating users from the ChromeOS app to the new Zoom for Chrome PWA to ensure a smooth transition.

This article covers:

Prerequisites for configuring Zoom for Chrome PWA

  • Access to the Google Admin console

How to configure Zoom for Chrome PWA

  7. Enter this URL (https://pwa.zoom.us/wc) and choose how you want the PWA to open.

  9. Set the app policies manually, or upload a custom JSON file.
  10. Click Save.

To check if the configuration has been successfully applied: 

  1. Enter chrome://policy in the browser on the target Chrome browser.
  2. Find the ManagedConfigurationPerOrigin policy section and click Show more to expand the policy value. 
  3. Copy the managed_configuration_url value into your browser address bar, load that page, and verify the JSON matches. 

Sample JSON

See below for a sample configuration that disables Google login and pre-defines the vanity URL used to log-in using SSO:

"DisableGoogleLogin": true,

"SetSSOURL": "success"
}

Note: When setting the SSO URL, just the domain is required. There is no need for the full SSO URL, such as https://success.zoom.us.
