Zoom coming soon on Amazon, Facebook, and Google smart display devices

Zoom Video Communications has very cleverly taken advantage of the ongoing Global Pandemic and expanded its reach by making itself available on different platforms such as Amazon Echo Show, Facebook Portal, and Google Nest Hub Max.

It’s a huge augmentation for Zoom, as it has also started to diversify into making its own licensed videoconferencing hardware.

Since all the three companies Google, Amazon, and Facebook have continued to stick to their own video-communication services (Google Meet, Facebook Messenger Rooms, and Amazon Chime, respectively). The new amalgamation with Zoom is of great importance.

Facebook Portal owners can start using Zoom starting this September, while Google Nest Hub Max and Amazon Echo Show 8 owners will get support later this year. Other smart displays with Google Assistant support will also be able to participate in Zoom calls.

As reported by The Verge, Each of the three platforms will implement Zoom with a little variation. Facebook’s Portal devices will be adding a Zoom app (along with new apps for BlueJeans, GoToMeeting, and Webex, which were also announced today), and will rely on Facebook’s “smart camera” technology to automatically keep you in the frame, just like it does for Facebook’s own Messenger and WhatsApp calls.

Google, on the other hand, will be relying on the asset of its Calendar and Assistant services, which will be able to automatically pull in existing Zoom meetings directly from your calendar and allow users to start meetings with voice commands like “Hey Google, join my next meeting.” (Unfortunately, the fact that Google limits Nest Hubs to a single account means that it’ll be less useful for juggling work and personal Zoom meetings.)

Alexa customers will also get a similar experience. Echo Show devices that have been synced with your calendar will be able to automatically start meetings without requiring users to manually input a meeting ID or password, and it’ll support Alexa voice controls, too. Amazon’s rollout will start later this year, beginning with the Echo Show 8.
