[NEW] Zoom’s 9-month SDK release window

You should have received a notice that beginning November 1, 2021, we will require that customers’ Zoom software be no more than nine months behind the current version at any given time. From that date, users will be prompted to update their software if their version falls behind this nine-month window. This announcement describes how the Zoom Client 9-month release window will impact your SDK development.

When we release a new SDK, we’ll share the minimum supported version for that SDK in the release notes and documentation. If your integration uses an earlier version, the app built with that SDK will stop working until you build your integration using a supported SDK version. Therefore it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest releases. The sections below describe how each SDK is affected.

Native Meeting SDKs

(Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows)

As of November 1, the minimum supported version of the Native Meeting SDKs will be 5.5.1 as this shares a code base with version 5.5.1 of the Zoom Client.

These Meeting SDKs share a common code base with the Zoom Client. Every SDK version maps to a corresponding client version. However, not all client versions have a corresponding SDK version. We’ll include the minimum supported version in the release notes and documentation for each release.

Periodically, we may require additional updates outside of this release window to address additional security or compliance features. We will make an effort to give you ample time to upgrade to these versions.

See Zoom Meeting SDKs for details.

Web Meeting SDK

As of November 1, the minimum supported version will be 1.9.0.

The Web Meeting SDK will more closely align with the Zoom Client 9-month release window. We’ll also keep you updated about the minimum supported version for each release in the release notes. See Zoom Meeting SDKs for details.

Video SDKs

(All platforms)

The 9-month release window will impact the Video SDKs at a later date. We’ll let you know the minimum supported version in an upcoming release note. In the meantime, we encourage you to stay up-to-date with the latest releases and update your integrations as soon as they are released.
