Allow Meet hardware devices to join Zoom calls without being admitted by a host

By default, to join a Zoom call using a Meet hardware device, participants must be admitted by a host already in the meeting. As an administrator, you can allow Meet hardware devices to join Zoom calls without asking by generating an interop token in the Zoom web portal and adding it to the Google Workspace Admin console.

Step 1: Generate an interop token in the Zoom web portal

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal as an admin with the privilege to edit Zoom Rooms settings.
  2. To generate a token, click Account Managementand thenAccount Settingsand thenMeetingand thenAllow my organization's 3rd party conference room systems to join my Zoom meetings as an authorized user.
  3. Copy the token; it will not be shown again.
    For more details, go to Zoom Interop for Google Meet.

Step 2: Add the token to the Google Admin console

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. Go to Menu and then Devicesand thenGoogle Meet hardwareand thenSettings.
  3. In the Service settings section, click Built-in interoperability direct access.
  4. Paste the token you generated in the Zoom web portal in the section for Zoom Waiting Room bypass.
