Creating a meeting between two users who do not have an account


Hi everyone!
I have an app (Android & iOS) like whatsapp, where users chat and exchange some documents. I want to add a new functionality where users can call another user without Zoom account.

How To Reproduce (If applicable)

What I tried:

  • Backend - Create a meeting via API Rest
  • Android App - User1 Joins this meeting without login
  • Android App - User2 Joins this meeting without login

I created the meeting via API with this params:

  "topic": "Chat Name",
  "type": 1,
  "password": "*****",
  "settings": {
    "host_video": true,
    "participant_video": true,
    "join_before_host": true,
    "approval_type": 0,
    "enforce_login": false


I’m not able to start the meeting. I’m stuck on “waiting”. The meeting is waiting for the host to start.


What I’m doing wrong? I’m on the right track?

Hi @oriolikart, when you are creating a meeting there must be a host user for which the meeting can be associated with. When creating a Zoom meeting between two people, that instant meeting should be hosted by one of the participants. The host should be joined using the start_url and and participants should join using a join_url.
