It supports all the popular OS and device platforms.

In this article we will cover how to install Zoom on Ubuntu.

Downloading the Zoom Debian package

Let’s use wget to download the Zoom 64 bit Debian package.

wget https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom_amd64.deb
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

Once the package download is complete, let’s install it.

sudo apt install ./zoom_amd64.deb

Now that we have Zoom installed on our system, we can open the application, you can find the application is located in Applications -> Internet -> Zoom, If you use Gnome or KDE you can search for Zoom and it should appear in the search result.

If for some reason the install did not work correctly, or you no longer want to have Zoom on your system, you can uninstall it by running the command below.

sudo apt remove zoom
