I’d like to be able to “broadcast” a message to the meeting chat of a specific meeting while it’s in progress. It seems logical that, if I can send messages to a Zoom channel via incoming webhook or using the API that it might be possible to send a message to a Meeting Chat, if the channel id for the chat is something that can be determined.
Is there a way to get the id of a Meeting Chat channel? Perhaps it could be returned when a Meeting is created using the API?
I dont think currently this is possible. But this is a good feature request…
Theoretically this should be possible by calling this API (Zoom Team Chat API) for the user and getting a list of thier channels.
Once you have the channel ID you should be able to post there.
@ptrin following up on this…
We are currently working on a feature where the meeting APIs (not sure which one) will also return the channel ID for the meeting , so after this if you have the corresponding chat scopes, you should be able to post in the channel. This feature should be available by end of Q1 next year.
That’s great news, and I appreciate the quick reply!
