Release Notes for Zoom Rooms Android Controller:

New Zoom Rooms Controller App Use Policies

With the release of Zoom Rooms Controller app version 5.5.0 (and newer), ZOOM requires the app be run full-screen only.  Because of this new policy, the app cannot be run in an app window with AMX control buttons side-by-side.  This new functionality is being enforced by ZOOM and the app will not operate in an app window.

As a workaround, please consider implementing Zoom’s “Room Control” functionality: .  You can use this feature to either add control buttons to the ZRC app, or simply add a [Close App] button.  This [Close App] button would send a user-defined string back to your Netlinx controller, and when that string is received the Netlinx controller can be coded to send the ^APP- command to your touch panel which will close the app.  This command does not affect an in-progress meeting/call, and will not affect pairing/login status.  Please note you must be using a paid Zoom Rooms account to enable the Room Control feature. *Example Code is available for download - ZRC with Room Controls.AXW

Beginning November 1, 2021, customers will be required to update their Zoom software to ensure it is no more than nine months behind the current version, at any given time.  To prepare for the new schedule, ZOOM recommends their customers update to the latest release supported by their organization, or at minimum software version 5.5.0, prior to November 1st.
