Zoom Calendar Add-In and Microsoft Outlook plugin for desktop

Zoom offers two variations of an Outlook integration; the Zoom Plugin and Zoom Add-In. Both of these integrations allow customers to add a Zoom meeting to their Outlook calendar event. 

To ensure our users are getting the best experience while adhering to policies and guidelines set by Apple and Microsoft, Zoom is highly recommending the migration of users to Zoom’s Add-In. The Add-In provides customers with an easier deployment and more robust admin management solutions, is actively being supported by Microsoft, and better meets the recently enhanced security requirements of vendors like Apple.
