I just updated the Zoom app, and now it does not automatically offer to generate a calendar invitation as before. Previously, it opened my Google calendar in my browser and let me send invitations to participants when I scheduled a meeting. Now it tried to open Microsoft Outlook, which I do not use.

Thanks for the replies. I have now managed to restore the Google Calendar option when setting up a Zoom meeting. I don't know why Zoom's update caused the problem in the first place, but at least it's fixed now.
