Until last year, the way to use Zoom on a ChromeOS device was to download and use Zoom’s ChromeOS app. However, in August 2022, that app was discontinued and replaced by the Zoom PWA (progressive web app) for ChromeOS. According to the Zoom blogwas the idea to “use web-based technology to provide a native desktop experience.”
Chromebook users were given until February 2023 to transition to the new app. If you haven’t already or if you’re a little unsure about how to use the new app, here are some quick directions:
And that’s it! You get a pretty basic Zoom page with the usual Home, Join, and Schedule icons. A Add a calendar The link allows you to connect to your work or personal calendar so that the page can show all upcoming meetings. Or you can use the menu at the top of the window to join a team chat, view scheduled meetings, get a list of your contacts, or create a whiteboard.
For example, if you click Schemeyou see the usual Schedule meeting page.
And that’s it! Enjoy your Zoom meeting (assuming it’s a meeting you actually want to attend, of course…).
