Using Zoom in Dropbox

The Zoom and Dropbox integration allows you to:

  • Present files in Zoom, message people in Zoom, and create and join Zoom meetings, directly from Dropbox
  • See who presented your file in Zoom in the Activity section of a file preview

You can access your Zoom meetings from the Dropbox desktop app without connecting to Zoom. Once connected, you can also add Zoom meetings to your calendar events from the desktop app.
