Universal Links for Zoom integration to web apps


#1

To add zoom buttons to web apps, it would be useful (and platform agnostic) to have some more universal links at hand:

Zoomus://chat/bernd.gewehr@voessing.de could open a private chat with me.
Zoomus://chat/Zoomlovers could open that group chat
Zoomus://meet/bernd.gewehr@voessing.de could launch an a/v call to me
Zoomus://meet/Zoomlovers could launch an a/v group meeting for that chat group

Is there an existing documentation for the currently available universal links?

Will you expand it to add chat in short?


#2

I am investigating our deep link options now. Please keep a lookout in future documentation for clarifications.


#3

Important will be that all clients (iOS/Android/Mac/win) must register the universal link in the registries of the OS. Then this kind of integration is quite easy and powerful.

I added zoomus: as a protocol to my windows registry using the following .reg-content (add to a zoomus.reg file and launch that file):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\zoomus]
@="URL:zoomus"
"EditFlags"=dword:00000002
"FriendlyTypeName"="Zoom universal Link"
"URL Protocol"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\zoomus\DefaultIcon]
@="\"C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\Roaming\\Zoom\\bin\\Zoom.exe\",1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\zoomus\shell]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\zoomus\shell\open]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\zoomus\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\Roaming\\Zoom\\bin\\Zoom.exe\" \"--url=%1\""

Now I have to understand which options we have inside of the URL parameter.
Looks like these are the only ones so far:
