How to Create Zoom Meetings with Google Script

This guide describes how you can programmatically create user meetings in your Zoom account with the help of Google Apps Script and the official Zoom API.

As a first step, go to the Zoom Developer Dashboard and create a new app. Choose JWT as the app type and make a note of the Zoom API key and secret. We can build Zoom apps with the OAuth2 library as well but since this app is only for internal use and will not be publish to the Zoom marketplace, the JWT approach is easier.

The app would involve two step. We’ll connect to the /api.zoom.us/v2/users/ API to get the Zoom ID of current authenticated user. Next, we make a POST request to the /v2/users/<<ZoomUserId>>/meetings endpoint to create the actual Zoom meeting.

Generate the Zoom Access Token

const ZOOM_API_KEY = '<Your Zoom key here>>';
const ZOOM_API_SECRET = '<Your Zoom secret here>';
const ZOOM_EMAIL = '<Your Zoom account email here>';

const getZoomAccessToken = () => {
  const encode = (text) => Utilities.base64Encode(text).replace(/=+$/, '');
  const header = { alg: 'HS256', typ: 'JWT' };
  const encodedHeader = encode(JSON.stringify(header));
  const payload = {
    iss: ZOOM_API_KEY,
    exp: Date.now() + 3600,
  };
  const encodedPayload = encode(JSON.stringify(payload));
  const toSign = `${encodedHeader}.${encodedPayload}`;
  const signature = encode(
    Utilities.computeHmacSha256Signature(toSign, ZOOM_API_SECRET)
  );
  return `${toSign}.${signature}`;
};

Get the Internal User Id of the current user

const getZoomUserId = () => {
  const request = UrlFetchApp.fetch('https://api.zoom.us/v2/users/', {
    method: 'GET',
    contentType: 'application/json',
    headers: { Authorization: `Bearer ${getZoomAccessToken()}` },
  });
  const { users } = JSON.parse(request.getContentText());
  const [{ id } = {}] = users.filter(({ email }) => email === ZOOM_EMAIL);
  return id;
};

Integrating new and innovative features will make your app stand out from the other video conferencing apps. Moreover, this does not necessarily mean that you should compromise any of the basic features.

The essential features that should be incorporated into your video conferencing app are as follows.

Chat

Using this feature, the users can connect with other users. While attending the meeting, they can chat with all the participants in the meeting or chat individually, depending on their choice.

**Virtual hand-raising
**

It is the most useful feature. Participants can speak at any time in the meeting using this feature. When one participant is presenting her/his topic in the meeting, it is not good to see the other participants interrupting. This prevents multiple participants from speaking at the same time.

**Screen sharing
**

This feature will let the participant in the meeting share the screen with other members.

**Encryption
**

The app should not let unauthorized users join the meeting. Therefore, your app should be embedded with end-to-end encryption. By doing this, no one can join the meeting without the permission of the host.

**Zoom clone app development - How much does it cost?
**

When it comes to the Zoom like app development cost, it mainly depends on your app features and functionality.

There is a rough estimation that the app cost is less when you plan to incorporate the basic features. You have to invest a particular amount of money in including the advanced and new features.

Other important features that determine the price are the geographical location, app platform, and time frame.

**Final note
**

Hoping so, this article helps you in knowing the feature-set to integrate into a video conferencing app like Zoom. However, there is no doubt that the requirement for video conferencing apps is high.

As Zoom being the most popular app, incorporate the same features in your app and include additional features that Zoom has failed to work. Approach Uber Like App for Zoom like app development.

How To Create A Video Chat App Like Zoom?

The previous year has put the world into unforeseen circumstances where the entire earth population was obligated to stay indoors while the social gathering places like work and educational organisations and other entertainment centres were closed. This held the daily routine of people and this impacted the nation’s economy. So an alternative has been looked at that supports working at remote locations and staying far from other people. So they bought their job and studies to the online platforms.

To ensure work is running smoothly and to have meetings with the officials, the office employees opted for video conferencing. But it had its disadvantages as it does not support more than 10 people. Zoom is a video conferencing app that supports more than 1000 users in a single call. This has been used in many places such as office conference meetings, online class for students, virtual inauguration ceremony, graduation ceremony etc. it can also be used for non-official purposes like connecting with friends and family etc.

Turnkeytown develops a zoom clone that offers reliable connection and video quality during video conferencing with as many members as possible. There are many steps involved in developing an app. Let us look at them in detail.

Step 2: Define the features. One has to decide on the number of features that are to be included in the app. The following are the essential features in apps like zoom.

  • Pre-call video preview
  • Chat
  • File-sharing
  • Multi-party conference
  • Desktop sharing
  • Recording
  • Filters or icons
  • Whiteboard
  • Live to stream
  • Virtual hand-raising
  • Polls
