Zoom reminds users to switch away from its Chrome App before the end of August

What you need to know

  • The Zoom app found in the Chrome Web Store will no longer be supported after August 2022.
  • Users of the app will instead need to install the Progressive Web App version of Zoom.
  • The Play Store version of Zoom will also still be available for Chromebook owners.

We all knew this day was coming, and it’s almost here. Chromebook users will soon no longer be able to install or use dedicated Chrome Apps, and that includes the popular video-conferencing service, Zoom.

As noted by 9to5Google (opens in new tab), users of the Zoom Chrome Web App have started to see a notice letting them know that they all will soon be deprecated. Instead, Zoom users are being directed to use the new Chrome PWA (Progressive Web App) if they still need to use the service.
