The new Video SDK released by Zoom allows application developers to create desktop experiences with video-based applications and native user interfaces. This allows them to offer their users HD video, audio and interaction features from Zoom.
According to the video conferencing service, second and third developers have used the Video SDK to add the reliability and scalable performance of Zoom’s video-priority Unified Communications platform to their products and applications. In this way, developers can build exciting experiences that can increase customer engagement and generate new revenue regardless of the Zoom Meetings interface.
Zoom also illustrates various scenarios in which developers can integrate their services. Developers can integrate Zoom features into social media applications to create stable and engaging communication experiences, such as live streams with interactive chat while on the move. Zoom’s HD video, audio, and interactive features allow game developers to create desktop gaming applications that open up new opportunities for audience interaction. Organizations can take advantage of Zoom’s interactive features to create unique customer-specific shopping experiences and monetize. Using the Video SDK, developers can enhance their customers’ experience, create applications and features that reduce disruptions to the user experience, provide new opportunities for audience engagement and increase accessibility.
On the other hand, Lingmo, a cloud-based provider of artificial intelligence translation software, is shown as an example of what is possible with the Video SDK. According to Zoom, Lingmo used the Video SDK to create Lingmo Captions, which provides real-time translated meeting captions. This app not only enables communication between people who speak different languages, but also improves the user experience by providing additional opportunities for interaction.
What is the Zoom Developer Platform?
The Video SDK is described as a critical part of the Zoom Developer Platform, which allows service providers and developers to create integrations with applications on top of Zoom’s Unified Communications platform and bring video, audio, content sharing, chat, and more to their applications .
Developed by considering the developers’ needs and goals, the Developer Platform provides global distribution opportunities with the discovery of Zoom developer solutions and tools, easy access to dedicated support infrastructure, and resources for developer communities.
Zoom Developer Platform APIs include developer kits, chatbots, webhooks, and distributions for integrations with apps.
The latest version of the platform offers a more detailed performance analysis to give developers additional insight into the performance and usage of their apps on the Zoom App Marketplace. These include subscription numbers at the user and account level, active user and active account statistics, API usage volumes, and more. Zoom also plans to release more updates in the coming months to improve app discoverability and integration.
