Mass-deploying with preconfigured settings for Android


System administrators can use a Mobile Device Management (MDM) to remotely configure the Zoom mobile app on managed Android devices. This allows admins to require use of certain settings or disable them entirely.

The mobile app can be enrolled in and managed through Zoom Device Management, which allows you to centrally control desktop client and mobile app settings in the Zoom web portal. 

This article covers:

Learn to install Zoom with preconfigured settings for Windows devices, macOS devices, and iOS devices. You can also use Zoom’s own Device Management platform to centrally configure desktop client and mobile app settings.
