Did format of chat files change around January 5th 2023?

Hi all. I have a question about the chat file format.

Format Your New Topic as Follows:

API Endpoint(s) and/or Zoom API Event(s)

recording.completed events.


I noticed yesterday that the content format of chat files was changed. I got a chat file in JSON format. But the file was in another format in 2022. Is this change intentional?

More detail:

I got the chat file like below format in 2022;

00:00:02 USER NAME: chat texts

but now, in 2023, I got it like below via recording.completed event of webhook;


I have two questions:

  • Is this change planned?
  • If so, where were these changes announced before release?

If this change is intentional, I will try to parse the JSON format.

Thank you.
