Websdk - Support for React 17 and 18

Currently the applications using the @zoom/websdk require React 17 and 18 but the websdk only supports up to React 16.4.0.
When upgraded to the latest React versions the zoom session init doesn’t always properly setup before a meeting is started and causes a black screen for the zoom session.

Which Web Meeting SDK version?

Meeting SDK Code Snippets
Standard setup similar to the examples

Device (please complete the following information):

  • Browser: Chrome
  • Browser Version: 117.0.5938.132

Additional context
Are there any plans for zoom to upgrade their react and react-dom versions?

The short answer is yet, but for the time being, client view only works on React 16.

Reading the docs are there any alternative solutions to having an embedded zoom meeting in a browser app that would be compatible?

@emedina.engineer ,
another alternative would be to use the client view in an iframe / embed element
