How to use Zoom on a Chromebook with our progressive web app (PWA)

Upgrade Your Zoom Experience on Chrome OS

From Chrome OS App to Progressive Web Application (PWA)

If you are still using the Zoom Chrome OS App, it’s time to upgrade your experience by switching to the Zoom Progressive Web Application (PWA) for Chrome OS. Zoom is phasing out its support for the Chrome OS App and is encouraging its users to switch to the PWA as soon as possible.

Key Dates to Keep in Mind

To help with the transition, here are a few key dates to keep in mind:

  • August 2022: Zoom ended support for the Chrome OS App
  • November 5, 2022: The Chrome OS App is no longer searchable in the Chrome Web Store
  • January 15, 2023: Chrome OS users clicking on Zoom links will automatically launch the PWA, which will be made by Zoom
  • February 1, 2023: The Chrome OS App will be fully removed and will no longer be available.

Improving the Zoom Experience for Chromebook Users

Switching to the PWA will not only improve the Zoom experience for Chromebook users but will also provide them with access to even more Zoom features on Chrome OS devices. Zoom is encouraging its customers to switch to the PWA as soon as possible to take advantage of these benefits.

Installing the Zoom Progressive Web Application (PWA)

Downloading the PWA

The Zoom Progressive Web Application (PWA) can be installed from the Google Play store by clicking the link or searching for “Zoom PWA” or “Zoom for Chrome PWA” in the Play store. After downloading the app, you can log in or join a meeting and start using it.

Installing the PWA

You can install the PWA directly from your web browser navigation bar or through central admin management. After installation, the PWA will appear as an application on your Chrome OS device, providing you with an app-like experience while using the same technology as your web browser and Chrome OS.

Benefits of the PWA

The PWA is faster and more functional than regular apps, takes up less storage, and is great for cloud-based devices. Zoom is partnering with Google to create the best possible application experience on Chrome OS and is excited to offer a PWA client that gives users even more features and improved performance. The PWA will receive updates automatically as Zoom updates its web client.

For Systems Administrators

If you are a systems administrator, you can still remotely install and manage the PWA, providing centralized configuration and security options. Visit Zoom’s support site for more information on auto-launching the PWA for your users.
