Mumbai: Zoom today announced the general availability of Zoom Apps SDK. The SDK provides developers with the resources and support infrastructure needed to build Zoom Apps within the Zoom client. It enables developers to build new applications.

By building on the Zoom Apps SDK, developers can reach Zoom customers, and users can discover and add new apps within the same client they use every day, the company said.

It’s a JavaScript SDK providing access to client features such as setting the Virtual Background while also providing the app context for the interaction. And uses a method to get the meeting context, with identifiers for the user and meeting.

These identifiers can be used with a comprehensive set of API endpoints from the Zoom Developer Platform, including REST APIs and Webhooks to enrich the app experience

Developer partners have published over 100 Zoom Apps to enrich meeting experiences ranging from meeting productivity, team collaboration, and social networking to gaming.

“To meet customer expectations, organisations continue to look for ways to evolve their businesses and scale workflows, which leads to an increased need for developers to have access to develop innovative app capabilities and features,” said Brendan Ittelson, CTO of Zoom.

“With the launch of the Zoom Apps SDK, the Zoom Developer Platform continues to expand and offer developers new ways to incorporate video communications and collaboration into their creations, transforming business workflows forever,” added Ittelson.
“The ability to leverage APIs to enable application integration and innovation is a critical digital transformation need,” says Irwin Lazar, President and Principal Analyst – Metrigy.

“More than 84% of IT professionals in our research say that API availability is important for employee and customer engagement use cases. General availability of the Zoom Apps SDK will make it easier, and faster, for developers to deliver business benefits through a variety of ways,” added Lazar.
