Joining Meetings in Zoom directly from Browser

Join Zoom Meetings directly from Browser for your WordPress site is now possible. I have just released a new update version tagged 3.2.0 which allows your users to join meetings directly from your website without needing to download Zoom App. Please note: This is still in Testing phase for the plugin. So, let me know if there are any issues with this.

Install Video Conferencing with Zoom WordPress plugin

How does this work ?

If you have used Integration with Zoom Meetings for WordPress  before then you already know that to join meetings you would need to download Zoom App or Goto their website to Join. This feature from it allows you to join without needing to redirect to Zoom Website or zoom app. In General, you can directly join from browser.

In above screenshot you will see an option to Join via Web Browser option which would allow your users to join via web browser. Check below on what you will see after joining.

This above screenshot is the example of joining a meeting directly from your browser.

Turn off when not needed

You can disable join via browser link by selecting a checkbox in your meetings page when you create a certain meeting.
