Zoom for Slack

Slack is all about bringing teams together, and collaboration often requires face-to-face meetings. Whether scheduled or on the fly, the Zoom app makes it easy to instantly start or join a meeting, directly from within Slack.

If you're using the Legacy Zoom app, follow the steps below Update the legacy app to update.

Note: there's a bug with Zoom in older versions of the Slack mobile apps. Update to the latest version to make sure everything works properly.
