Connect the world by building with Zoom
Leverage Zoom’s core technology to provide innovative video-based solutions for every use case
Because Zoomtopia 2015’s theme, Exploring New Dimensions, was all about bringing them together, and who better to do that than developers? Ultimately, you accept the challenge of building those new dimensions, and we’re here to help. That’s why we held the first Developer Summit in our company’s history today. I would like to thank everyone who attended the event.
The Zoom conference featured over 20 different sessions including new and existing Zoom products and features, as well as real-world examples of how Zoom APIs and SDKs are being used by developers and Zoom partners. It’s our hodomestic animalYou left the event with a good feelingspiraled by your fellow developers and what they create!
I’m going to give an overview of some of the announcements that were made today.
New Partnerships and features to help you build
It is very important us to continue to offer you the opportunity to create solutions for a wide range of industries and applications cases, that is why we prioritize the openness and flexibility of our developer platform over other features. Our team understands that scaling these solutions can be challenging, as can building the infrastructure to support them. We will continue to innovate and address your concerns as a result of the results of our new Cooperations and Functions.
Build on Amazon Web Services within Zoom Meetings
To help you innovate and bring your own solutions to market, our developer platform is required to work seamlessly with other leading service and technology providers. Because of this, we plan to expand our work with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the near future.
There is a lot of effort and money spent by developers to capture raw audio and video from Zoom Meetings for downstream analysis of live audio and video. Our team saw it unique Ability to enhance the meeting experience by streamlining and simplifying the streaming of attendee audio and video to AWS artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and analytics services, providing richer meeting experiences.
We’ve harnessed the power of AWS and created a cost-effective approach that offers additional functionality while reducing development friction. By combining a Zoom Meeting SDK containerized with data streaming and AI/ML services provided by AWS you can build a complete end-to-end solution.

A use case for building together: Palo Alto Networks
It is becoming more and more common for people to communicate remotely. Given that so many employees are using Zoom at home and within hybrid work environments, IT teams are dedicated to ensuring all users have a great Zoom experience. Several IT administrators and network administrators have long sought actionable data, and we have responded to that demand with the recent launch of our Quality of Service Subscription (QSS) service. In every meeting, webinar and phone call, the QSS is able to provide a near real-time view of network traffic for each user, host and participant.
The Zoom QSS data points have been integrated into the Palo Alto Networks product to give them the ability to take QSS a step further further and Apply it to your own use case. As a result, Palo Alto Networks was inspired to take QSS one step further. With our new With the QSS data integration capabilities, Palo Alto Networks customers can now easily integrate our data with their existing ones infrastructure, giving them seamless access to workload insights and better network visibility.
It’s a game changer for developers and IT teams in large organizations, especially large enterprises using Palo Alto Networks as part of QSS integration.
Video SDK for Linux
As a result of Zoom’s low-latency, high-quality video systems, you can use our video SDK to build powerful applications around Zoom’s video systems. We give you access to high-quality HD video and audio, along with signature zoom capabilities, to help you create native and immersive interactive experiences for your users. Our company has expands steadily in recent years.
Take advantage of our upcoming Video SDK for Linux and extend the capabilities of your existing Video SDK app on one of the preferably Open source platforms using our upcoming Video SDK for Linux. Below are some examples of how this could be used:
In this case, we’re considering using a Linux-embedded drone to capture real-time video and audio, and stream what we’re seeing live on YouTube. It is even possible via the command channel let someone else control it remotely A different place.
From a Linux container running in the cloud, you can join a Video SDK session as a “virtual participant”.
Using Video SDK to extend a session’s AI and machine learning capabilities, e.g. B. for creating intelligent notes or for coaching sales reps.
The Video SDK for Linux is expected to be available in Q1 2023, and we’re excited to see what you can create with it.
Zoom developer platform improvements
More updates to come – we heard what you asked for and we’re bringing them to you.
Introducing admin-authorized apps: Our goal is to have admin-authorized apps available by the end of 2018. In Zoom, IT admins can pre-authorize apps for employees so they have ready-to-use apps in their Zoom account whenever they need them. We can help you build apps and integrations with our developer solutions that will increase awareness and distribution of the apps and integrations you build.
One build flow to master them all: Our new Build Flow will be available by the end of Q1 next year and will simplify the app building process, increasing app adoption and discoverability new Features by reducing technical issues at launch new functions for the app. By creating an app and giving it access to multiple features, you can give Zoom product users the ability to install it once and Use it for all Zoom products at the same time.
Access Zoom apps across our entire platform: We believe you should be able to extend your Zoom app to the entire Zoom product line using the Zoom Apps Software Development Kit (SDK).
