on ChromeOS, please use the new Zoom for Chrome PWA.

The Zoom app is based on outdated technology that has not been updated. Because the functionalities
are so limited that the developers want it to stop working on Chromebooks.

New Web app launched by Zoom

Notably, instead of shutting down completely, Zoom launched a Progressive Web App for Chromebooks in 2021. It has already received several significant updates in the last year

The app, dubbed Zoom for Chrome PWA, is an improved version of the previous one. It functions more like Zoom on Windows and macOS, with a familiar Ul alongside more advanced features such as
background blur.

Some features, such as Gallery view, weren’t supported by the PWA when it first launched for low-end
Chromebooks. Although there were difficulties with corrupt video feeds as well, PWA is now a fantastic experience thanks to the recent upgrades.

So if you’re still using the traditional Zoom app for Chromebooks, we would recommend you switch to Zoom for Chrome PWA
