Web SDK Overview
Zoom offers a web based HTML5 client that is used in environments where the end user has very low bandwidth environments, behind a network firewall, or have heavy restrictions on their machine that do not allow them to install the Zoom desktop or mobile clients
The web client lets end users join a meeting, receive screen share from other attendees, join the meeting through the phone and leave the meeting. Zoom has added a JS SDK as part of our developer platform to enable developers to embed this into their web apps.
Key functions that are exposed include: init meeting config
- join meeting
- show/hide invite function
- show/hide meeting header
- get attendees list
- call out
- invite by phone
- mute all
- unmute all
- lock meeting
- leave meeting
- end meeting
Our JS SDK is built as a web assembly module and runs the same highly optimized Zoom core framework inside the browsers.
The web client provides the user a limited set of features from the full Zoom client feature set. You can add the JS library in your application and use the built-in library functions to launch or join meetings using a browser.
We are working quickly to implement more features into the web client.
