This year’s Zoomtopia was all about Exploring New Dimensions, and who better to do that than developers? After all, you’re building these new dimensions, and we want to help. That’s why we held our first-ever Developer Summit today. Thank you to all who joined!
Featuring more than 20 sessions, we covered everything from new products and features to real-world examples of how developers and Zoom partners are using our APIs and SDKs to build their own apps & solutions. We hope you left feeling inspired by your fellow devs and what they’re building!
Here’s a rundown of some of today’s announcements.
We want to continue enabling you to create solutions across any number of use cases and industries, which is why we’re prioritizing the openness and flexibility of our developer platform. And we understand that building the infrastructure to scale those solutions can be challenging. The outcomes of our new collaborations and features will help you mitigate those concerns and continue to innovate.
Our developer platform needs to work seamlessly with other best-in-class service providers and technology vendors to help you bring your own solutions to market. This is why we're expanding our work with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Developers go to great lengths to capture raw audio and video from Zoom Meetings for downstream live audio and video analysis. We saw an opportunity to optimize and simplify streaming participant audio and video to AWS artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and analytics services, providing richer in-meeting experiences.
Together with AWS, we’ve developed a cost-effective approach that helps reduce development friction and offers more capabilities. You can build an end-to-end solution using a containerized Zoom Meeting SDK with AWS data streaming and AI/ML services. Interested in learning more about the AWS + Zoom Beta?

Remote communication is the new normal. With so many employees using Zoom at home and in hybrid work environments, IT teams are focused on ensuring a great user experience. There was considerable demand from IT & network admins for actionable data, and we responded with the recent launch of our Quality of Service Subscription (QSS). QSS provides details about network traffic in near real-time for every user, host, and participant in all meetings, webinars, and phone calls.
Palo Alto Networks was inspired to take QSS one step further, applying it to their own use case by integrating Zoom QSS data points into their network management product. Palo Alto Networks customers can now easily incorporate our QSS data into their existing infrastructure, providing seamless access to workload insights and better network transparency.
For developers and IT teams at large organizations in particular, QSS and our Palo Alto Networks integration is a game-changer.
Our Video SDK lets you build powerful solutions centered around Zoom’s low-latency, high-quality video. With access to our raw HD video and audio technology and hallmark Zoom features, you can build native, engaging, and interactive experiences for your users. And we’re continuing to expand.
Use our upcoming Video SDK for Linux to extend what’s possible with your existing video SDK app on one of the best open-source platforms. Use cases include:
Our Video SDK for Linux will become available in Q1 2023, and we can’t wait to see what you build with it.
The updates did not stop there - you asked, and we’re delivering.

In addition to making those announcements, it was an honor to host some of our partners at the Developer Summit. They joined us to demonstrate how they use the developer platform to continue addressing their customers’ needs and grow their businesses by using our technology.
Tribe Fitness, HackerRank, and Home Live each shared unique use cases for our Video SDK, ranging from interactive virtual workouts to remote-first interviewing web applications, to real estate virtual viewing solutions.
Current Health, a Zoom ISV partner, demonstrated how our Meeting SDK is used in both scheduled appointments and on ad-hoc calls by healthcare providers and patients.
Hermis helped attendees explore how Collaborate Mode and Guest Mode can be the key differentiators for their Zoom App. Welo reimagined event facilitation by using Zoom Apps for Webinars and breakout rooms. And Twine developers shared how they supercharged the power of breakout rooms with our Zoom Apps SDK.
Nylas shared their API platform, which is making it possible for developers to easily distribute Zoom Meetings and Webinar invite links, as well as Meeting SDK and Video SDK invite links to participants via the Nylas Email and Calendar APIs.
Last but not least, Prezi dove deep into the capabilities and best practices of the Layers API and shared how to build immersive applications for video presentations. Prezi leverages the Layers API to bring presentation content into the video feed right next to the user, so others on the call don’t have to look back and forth between the slides and the presenter.
