Use Meet hardware to join a Zoom meeting

You can join a Zoom meeting from a Google Meet hardware device, which allows participants from both Meet and Zoom Rooms to join the same meeting. 

Some Meet features are not supported in a Zoom meeting. Meetings are recorded by the Zoom host and a recording indicator is visible on screen.

Note that for Meet hardware devices to be able to join a Zoom meeting, the Only authenticated users can join meetings setting must be turned off in your Zoom web portal.

Schedule a Zoom meeting on a Meet hardware device

If a Google Calendar user in your organization creates an event that includes Zoom meeting details, they can add the room that is associated with a Google Meet hardware device. The Zoom meeting will appear on the room’s agenda. 

If the event with Zoom meeting details originated outside of your organization or from a client other than Google Calendar, the user may not have permission to directly add the room. In this case, they can:

  1. Duplicate the event in Google Calendar.
  2. Add the room with Google Meet hardware to the duplicated event. 
  3. You may want to remove all participants from the duplicated event so they do not get multiple invitations.

Alternatively, users can create their own meeting to invite the conference room and copy and paste the Zoom join details into the description of the event (instead of adding a Meet link). The Meet hardware device should recognize the Zoom join details and display it on the agenda.

Join a scheduled Zoom meeting from a Meet hardware device

  1. Enter the room with the Meet hardware device that has a Zoom interop call scheduled.
  2. Tap the meeting name that includes the subtitle Via Zoom. Use the touch controller or remote control to select the meeting.
  3. The meeting will begin when the Zoom host joins.

  1. Find an available Meet hardware room.
  2. Tap Join or start a meeting.
  3. On the top left, tap Meetand thenZoom.
  4. In the Zoom Meeting number, enter the number from the Zoom invitation.
  5. Tap Join.
  6. Enter the meeting password, if one is required.
  7. Tap Join.
  8. The meeting will begin when the Zoom host joins.

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

By default, participants joining using a Meet hardware device must be admitted to the Zoom call 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.

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal as an admin with the privilege to edit Zoom Rooms settings.
  2. To generate a token, go to Account Managementand thenAccount Settingsand thenMeetingand thenAllow my organization's 3rd party conference room systems to join my Zoom meetings as an authorized user and copy it.
  3. Go to Menu""and thenApps""and thenGoogle Workspaceand thenGoogle Meet hardwareand thenSettingsand thenService settings.
    Requires having the Google Meet hardware without Calendar administrator privilege.
  4. Go to the Built-in interoperability direct access section.
  5. Paste the token you generated in the Zoom web portal in the section for Zoom Waiting Room bypass.
  6. Click Save.
    For more details, see the Zoom support article.

We expect this feature to be able to bypass the Only authenticated users can join meetings Zoom setting in a future release.
