Zoom has partnered with Google in the creation of the Zoom Progressive Web App (PWA) for Chrome OS, which leverages web-based technology to deliver a native desktop experience.
PWAs are web apps that can be installed on Chrome OS to provide an app-like experience while using the same technology as your web browser and Chrome OS. PWAs are usually faster and more functional than a regular app, and take up less storage — which is great for cloud-based devices. If you’re a systems administrator, you can still remotely install and manage the PWA, providing centralized configuration and security options.
Partnering closely at the application and OS level, Zoom optimized for Google’s Chrome OS delivers a unified communication platform designed for remote collaboration and communication, ensuring teachers, students, IT departments and employees stay productive wherever they are.

Downloading & installing the Zoom PWA
The Zoom PWA is installable from the Google Play store (click the link, or search for ‘Zoom PWA’ or ‘Zoom for Chrome PWA’ in the Play store), and will appear as an application on your Chrome OS device.
Download the app, then either log in or join a meeting — and you’re up and running. You can also install the new app directly from your web browser navigation bar as well as via central admin management.
