Zoom continues to pour resources into the Zoom Developer Platform because we believe in enabling innovation. Developers are leading the charge in building the future through collaboration, education, gaming, and other applications, and we want our developer ecosystem to have everything they need to build apps and integrations using Zoom’s unified communications platform technology and global infrastructure.
We’re announcing a number of exciting new updates to the Zoom Developer Platform across our App Marketplace, APIs, SDKs, and apps and integrations. Each of these enhancements is designed to enable developers to more easily build Zoom into their own products and services for any vertical or use case.
Here are a few of the new offerings for developers building on the Zoom platform:
Jumpstart will be our new app builder tool that makes it easier than ever for developers to move faster when they don’t need full customization but do need industry-leading, reliable video to show up in an app. Simply enter a few key configuration fields and select from some pre-designed feature and branding inputs, as well as platform options, and Jumpstart will generate code that brings Video SDK functionality seamlessly into an existing app. General availability expected in Fall 2021
We’re developing a command-line interface (CLI) to help developers prototype an application when they’re short on early-stage engineering resources and time. Use the CLI to quickly investigate Zoom's API, stand up a proof-of-concept, or even build serverless functions for quick scripts that don't need an entire back end to run. General availability expected in Fall 2021
Highly requested from our dev community, this programming language addition to our Video SDK will allow developers to write code once to build fully customizable video-based applications that work across Android and iOS devices. We expect this to be in beta in Fall 2021.
Developers will soon be able to list their Meeting SDK apps on the Zoom App Marketplace. The App Marketplace currently houses over 1,500 apps. Leverage access Zoom’s global customer base of millions of users, and drive global discovery and usage of your application. General availability expected in Fall 2021
