Non Androidx for Android API Version 27

I have an existing project which runs on 27 Android API version and wishes to integrate Zoom SDK in the project. But since zoom’s latest SDK only uses Androidx for building the SDK I tried using older releases of 2019 that is before 1/1/2020 ( which has Androidx strict dependency) for integration but I am unable to join the meeting. Also in the release notes it’s mentioned: " Please note that the End-Of-Life date of this non-AndroidX version is 01/01/2020.". So is there any way where I can use the old Zoom SDK version to integrate into my project.

Which version?

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

  1. Go to ‘
  2. Download Version v4.4.56656.1030
  3. Try to join a meeting
  4. See error as UNABLE TO CONNECT

Smartphone (please complete the following information):

  • Device: [e.g. One plus 7]
  • OS: [e.g. Android 10.3.6]
  • Version [e.g. 22]

Additional context
Please provide any possible solutions where I can use a zoom android sdk without androidx

Hi @coach, thanks for using our SDK.

Unfortunately, the error message you encountered is accurate. In order to use the Zoom SDK in your project, you will need to migrate to AndroidX.
