Adding the Zoom Chrome Extension for Scheduling Zoom Meetings via Calendar

This page will teach you how to add the Zoom extension to your Google Chrome browser. The Zoom Scheduler Chrome Extension allows participants to schedule Zoom meetings directly from Google Calendar. Using the extension, you can start an instant meeting or schedule a future meeting. The meeting join link and details are sent via a Google Calendar invitation so the attendee can join with a single-click from their calendar.
