Zoom Apps , announced at Zoomtopia , are leading applications that will bring productivity and engaging experiences directly into the Zoom platform.

My hope is that the Zoom Apps Fund will help our customers meet happier and collaborate even more seamlessly, and at the same time help entrepreneurs build new businesses as our platform evolves.
