In Meeting chat API


I want to develop a web app and looking to read the in-meeting chat (both public & private chats) using API (without embedding any zoom web client).

How can I do this?


Hey @adamm

Thanks for posting on the Zoom Devforum! I am still learning, but I will try my best to help answer your question. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hey @will.zoom ,

I read the linked threads - is there any plan to add this API in the future?
This has huge potential and can be incredible for a lot of use cases.

Hey @adamm,

Thanks for raising this—we have received this feedback before and do hope to expand the capabilities of our APIs at some point, in regards to in-meeting actions. However, this is not on our near-term roadmap at the moment.

That said, I can certainly appreciate the use case and will be happy to continue sharing this feedback internally.


Thanks, I hope you’ll move this forward.
What about Zapps? will the API for developers get released soon? from what I understand this should also give a way to improve the traditional interactions tools in Zoom (chat, polls, q&a, reactions)

Hey @adamm,

Yes—our Zoom Apps are in beta and we will be releasing them more widely in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
