Jump directly into web client

We found that it is more convenient for our customers to jump directly into the web client instead of having to go through the intermediary page which asks them to download the Zoom client. How can this be done with OAuth and the API?


Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?

Which Endpoint/s?

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create a meeting
  2. Click on meeting link
  3. A page will appear asking you to either open the meeting, download the client or open the web client. We want to jump directly to the web client based meeting, without any pages in between.

Thanks for your help!

Hey @philip1,

If you wish to generate a URL that takes meeting participants directly to the web client, you can follow this URL format—just make sure to replace {meetingId} with your ID and display_name with the desired user name:

Let me know if this helps!


Hi Will,

thanks for your reply. Is there an even more direct way to jump right into the web meeting? Maybe by supplying the name of the attendee via a GET parameter?


Hey @philip1,

Another way to have a participant join directly under their existing user profile would be to require registration for your meetings. You could then query this endpoint for unique join_urls for each registrant:
