Getting started with the Zoom for Chrome PWA Follow

Overview

Zoom unifies cloud video conferencing and simple online meetings into one easy-to-use platform. Our solution offers the best video, audio, and wireless screen-sharing experience across multiple platforms. The Zoom for Chrome PWA (Progressive Web App) allows you to use some of the same features available on the desktop client or mobile app within the Chrome web browser.

For more information regarding how to deploy a custom configuration of the Zoom for Chrome PWA, please refer to the admin configuration 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 June 2022. We strongly recommend admins begin migrating users from the ChromeOS app to the new Zoom for Chrome PWA to ensure a smooth transition.
