APIs available to developers?

New to Zoom development – so please bear with me if these are straightforward.

We are beginning to think about creating a Zoom app – before we move ahead with it, I wanted to see if the following APIs were available to Zoom developers:

  • Determine if participant’s camera is on/off
  • Determine if and when a participant raises a blue hand, uses the green check, or uses the red no
  • Determine how long a participant speaks for
  • Determine if a participant responded to a poll and what result they input

Hi @lexie,

Good questions, and welcome to our developer community! Happy to clarify.

  • Determine if participant’s camera is on/off

We don’t have an endpoint specifically for this—our APIs are generally for pre- and post-meeting queries, not for real-time information. However, you can query a user’s settings to see if they have video enabled by default. This is accessible via this endpoint:

  • Determine if and when a participant raises a blue hand, uses the green check, or uses the red no

This information is not accessible via API.

  • Determine how long a participant speaks for

While this is a great suggestion, this is not available via API at the moment. You can track when a participant joins/leaves, total time spent speaking would be a feature request. If you’re so inclined, you might consider adding a +1 to this feature request here.

  • Determine if a participant responded to a poll and what result they input

You can retrieve poll results via API using this endpoint:

I hope this helps!

Best,
Will
