Zoom Unveils SDK, App Analytics for Developers

Zoom is introducing new tools for developers, laying the groundwork for a broader ecosystem of partners built around the videoconferencing platform’s technology.

First, the company will make it easier to use its video SDK with a Buy Now option that helps developers create a Video SDK developer account and begin building. It also is launching Developer.zoom.us, a site where developers can learn about Zoom’s open developer platform and other developer resources.

Developers who use the Zoom App Marketplace can access detailed analytics to track the performance of their app on the marketplace. They’ll be able to track user and account level subscription counts, active user and active account metrics, API usage volumes and more.

Zoom has become a household name since the Covid-19 pandemic affected the workforce, sending many employees to work remotely. The videoconferencing platform facilitated virtual meetings, classes and even events.
