In addition to the add-on/extension, it also has plugins for Outlook and IBM notes. Finally, there is a special client you can install on the iPad if you want to share your screen from it.

These plugins can be installed from the official Zoom Downloads page.

Conclusion

THe Zoom desktop apps are needed if you plan on recording a meeting or using some of its other features. The mobile apps are necessary if you want to join a meeting since the Zoom web app doesn’t support mobile browsers. In a pinch, you can use the web app but if you use Zoom often, installing the apps on you desktop and phone is a good idea.
