Developer accounts


To start building with the Meeting SDK, you must use a Zoom user account.

The Zoom account Owner, Admins, or users with the Developer Role-Based Access Control permission can create a Meeting SDK App type.

The Meeting SDK follows the same Zoom Meeting and Webinar host license model. Checkout the User API to programmatically manage host licenses, including the custCreate user type (an "API only user").

The Meeting SDK is also compatible with Zoom OAuth, enabling existing Zoom users to connect their accounts to your Meeting SDK.

Test accounts

When you create a Basic Zoom account, you'll automatically get free trial Developer access to the Meeting SDK.

Create your Meeting SDK app type to access your Meeting SDK Credentials and download the Meeting SDK.
