Zoom browser plugins/Addons only for scheduling a meeting or for participation too?


Sorry for this newbie question:


Are the Zoom browser plugin/AddOns only for setup and scheduling a zoom Meeting or can I (visually) participate in a Zoom meeting too?



you can participate in a zoom meeting from a browser as long that option is allowed by the host who setup the meeting. 

I installed Zoom WebExtension on Chrome browser.


But there is no Zoom toolbar icon.

Where is it?


As far as i can see users of Zoom WebExtension are force to use Google Calendar to join a meeting.

Is this true?


I expected to be able to click simply a special link to join a certain Zoom meeting WITHOUT Google Calendar


zoom webextension enables you to schedule a zoom meeting from google calendar. 

see attached image.. is this what you are looking for?

I don't want to schedule a meeting!

I want to JOIN an existing zoom meeting.

I got an invitation link for such a Zoom meeting.


Do I have to Install full Zoom package on Windows?

If I click on the invitation link nothing happened.

Why not?

Is there a meeting number which can be entered manually in browser Zoom WebExtension?




no plugin is needed to join a zoom meeting if you see the below link that says "Join from Browser"


I believe the webextension you are talking about is mainly for scheduling an event. 


In the invitation there is often a meeting ID (10-12 digit number) and a passcode (6 digit number) if one is set. 

You can go to the website and select "Join a meeting" in the top right to connect to the meeting
