The popular teleconferencing software solution, Zoom, has announced the upcoming launch of Zapps that will provide access to third-party services right from within Zoom calls. According to the firm, Zapps will help people to conduct their work in a more efficient and productive manner.
The plan right now is for the first Zapps to be available on Zoom by the end of the year with more developers being given the ability to develop other apps shortly after. Zapps will be available to both free and paid users making them very accessible no matter your financial resources. With Zapps, users can quickly navigate apps within Zoom to streamline permissions, grant document accessibility, and collaborate on screen.
Zoom has launched Zapps with over 25 launch partners, the first Zapps that are being made available this year include Atlassian, Asana, Box, Dropbox, Slack, Wrike, Coursera, Kahoot!, Kaltura, Cameo, Exer, Slido, Superhuman, Woven, Pitch, Smartsheet, Coda, HubSpot, Chorus, Gong, Lucidspark, Miro, Mural, ServiceNow, and PagerDuty.
Explaining how some of the Zapps can be used, Product Lead of Integrations Ross Mayfield, said:
“[Y]ou can use the Dropbox Zapp to share the document you’ve been working on. You can put up a poll using the Slido Zapp. Or you can pull up the Asana Zapp and do status updates on your team projects.
Zapps are also unique in supporting the full meeting workflow. A meeting notes Zapp, for example, can be used beforehand to prepare the agenda, during to take notes, and after the meeting as a summary.”
