To align with Zoom’s recent announcement pertaining to our security initiative, Zoom Client SDKs have added AES 256-bit GCM encryption support, which provides more protection for meeting data and greater resistance to tampering. The system-wide account enablement of AES 256-bit GCM encryption will take place on June 01, 2020. You are strongly recommended to start the required upgrade to this latest version 4.6.21666.0512 at your earliest convenience. Please note that any Client SDK versions below 4.6.21666.0512 will no longer be operational from June 01.

If you would like to test the latest SDK with AES 256-bit GCM encryption meeting before 05/30, you may:

  1. Download the latest version of Zoom client:
  2. Visit and launch a GCM enabled meeting with your Zoom client, you will see a Green Shield icon that indicates the GCM encryption is enabled
  3. Use SDK to join this meeting

What is Zoom Ionic SDK?

Zoom SDK makes it easy to integrate Zoom with your mobile applications, and boosts up your applications with the power of Zoom.

  • Easy to use: Our SDK is built to be easy to use. Just import the libraries, call a few functions, and we will take care all video conferencing related stuffs for you.
  • Localizable: Our SDK naturally supports 7 major languages, so you can grow your applications internationally.


Please be aware that all hard-coded variables and constants shown in the documentation and in the demo, such as Zoom Token, Zoom Access, Token, etc., are ONLY FOR DEMO AND TESTING PURPOSES. We STRONGLY DISCOURAGE the way of HARDCODING any Zoom Credentials (username, password, API Keys & secrets, SDK keys & secrets, etc.) or any Personal Identifiable Information (PII) inside your application. WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT ANY LOSS CAUSED BY HARD-CODING CREDENTIALS OR SENSITIVE INFORMATION INSIDE YOUR APP WHEN DEVELOPING WITH OUR SDK.

Build Note

In order to use the camera and microphone on iOS, please add the following in your config.xml file. Otherwise, your app will not be able to initialize a meeting.

<edit-config file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge" target="NSCameraUsageDescription">
    <string>Need camera for video conferencing</string>
<edit-config file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge" target="NSMicrophoneUsageDescription">
    <string>Need microphone for video conferencing</string>

Simulator Support

By default, this plugin only support running on real devices. Since 4.4.55130.0712, we have introduced the simulator support. Here are the steps to add simulator support:

  1. Install the Zoom Ionic SDK plugin
ionic cordova plugin add cordova.plugin.zoom
  1. Navigate to appRoot/plugins/cordova.plugin.zoom, and back up the whole libs folder.
  2. Go to and download the ionic-zoomsdk-***.zip file; Unzipp it.
  3. Replace the libs folder in appRoot/plugins/cordova.plugin.zoom with the one in the ionic-zoomsdk-*** folder.
  4. Run ionic cordova platfrom rm android && ionic cordova platform add android or ionic cordova platform rm ios && ionic cordova platform add ios to make sure the new libraries are added to the project.
  5. If you are going to publish your app to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, please use the original libs since a library that contians simulator architecture will not pass the app upload check.
