NEW! Announcing the Miro app for Zoom

NEW! Announcing the Miro app for Zoom
Userlevel 3

Hello, Miro! Today we are thrilled to share the launch of the #1 most requested feature from you all over the past year: introducing the Miro app for Zoom. Now teams can seamlessly open a Miro board directly in their Zoom meeting, share it with meeting participants, and co-create together — all without switching tools. 

 

✅To get started, add the Miro app for Zoom, and read more about our partnership with Zoom on our blog. 

 

❓Need help? Read more about getting the most out of the Miro app for Zoom in our Help Center. To access Miro’s app, admin must approve & enable Zoom Apps for your team’s account, which you can read about in our Admin Guide.

 

🚀Today we are LIVE on Product Hunt. Check us out, and let us know what you think in the Product Hunt comments!

 

We can’t wait to see how you all use Miro in Zoom to make your meetings more human.

HI, I was able to get this connected however I am running into another issue.  I have two MIRO accounts, one associated with a work email and another with a personal email address. 

When I click the sign in option it take me to a webpage and asks me to select a TEAM - but those teams are in my personal account.  It does not give me the option to put in which email address i want to sign in with, so I can’t get to sign in with my work email and get to the board there.

 

can someone tell me how to switch accounts with the zoom integration?

 

 

Thanks

@David Grabner can someone tell me how to switch accounts?  It only seems to read my personal account and I cannot switch to login with my work email.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled and this still does not work.

 

HELP PLEASE

Happy to hear that @Adrien Painturier. Curious about your feedback.

@Tricia Conyers you can just logout on the top right and login again. 

Important would be that you are logged into your system browser with the right account (in this case your work account).

Hi @Max Harper that is a great observation and we will reach out to you and other shortly about this. 

In short Zoom is providing a very restricted webview that requires 3rd party apps and content to be whitelisted and requires OWASP headers to allow these navigational requests. 

It’s our plan to enable these shortly. Ping me directly if needed. Thanks

One question about the Miro app for Zoom: Is it possible to use Miro whiteboards within Zoom breakout rooms? And if so, is it possible to have each breakout room working on a different whiteboard, or different views of the same whiteboard, simultaneously?

We used Zoom with Miro last year in which four teams worked on different parts of a Zoom whiteboard during breakout sessions. Because the Miro app for Zoom didn’t exist at that time, we had one person screen-share the team’s section of the whiteboard, with that person editing the whiteboard in a browser window. Others could see the work and verbally suggest changes, but they could not write directly on the board. (We could have given them the link to do so in their browsers, but we felt it would be too confusing to have dozens of people trying to figure out how to go back and forth between Zoom and Miro.) Will the new Miro for Zoom app allow us to collaborate on different whiteboards or different parts of a whiteboard while in breakout rooms in the same Zoom meeting?

@Steve Freedkin thanks for you question and your well defined inputs. Really appreciate this.

At the moment we do not have a possibility on the Zoom side to also include breakouts into the new app we build but are working with Zoom to hopefully unlock this in the near future. We will keep this topic updated. 

Thanks

I have installed the app but keep getting an error message that Sign in failed and to try again. App is up to date and I’m using a Mac on OS 10.13.6

Hi @JonathanM that’s not the anticipated experience.

Could you try the following:
1. Closing the Miro app for Zoom on the top right three dots and open it again. 
2. If that also didnt work please try closing the Zoom desktop app completely and restarting it. 

Let us know if the issue continues to persist. Thanks 

Thank you! This is awesome!!

I ran into a one small issue where something works in the browser version of Miro but not in the Zoom app version.

Scenario:

For quick voting sessions I add a “thumbs up” :thumbsup: and a “thumbs down” :thumbsdown: emoji to the bottom of each sticky note. Collaborators can click on the emoji to increase the count next to the emoji icon (clicking it a second will remove their vote and decrease the number next to the emoji icon).

 

 

This functionality works in the browser, but not in the Zoom app. If a participant wants to add a +1 count to the emoji in the Zoom app, they have to select the sticky note → choose the emoji icon from the pop-up edit menu → search for the “thumbs up/down” emoji → add it to the sticky note.

 

Thanks again!

@Jeremy Myers thanks for surfacing this to us. This should work the same as in the web-app.

 

We will take a look and get back to you.

Any plans to bring this to WebEx? 

I’m having some problems integrating Zoom and Miro. I managed to successfully install the miro onto zoom and updated my zoom to the latest one.

But now when I get to this stage,

 

 

i choose my team and click next, then it pops up an error

 

“This Link in Invalid”

Is anyone facing the same problem?

I cant activate the integration. The error message is attached.

Any ideas?

@René Windus thanks for flagging this. Seems there is something wrong with getting the teams from your user. I will DM you to get more information. Thanks

This problem of “This link is invalid” was just happy today. Yesterday it worked just fine. This morning Miro Zoom App asked to login again -- couldn’t login.

@Thana that is indeed not expected. Could you send me a DM with a screenshot of the error you are seeing. Screen recording would be even better. Thanks

The screen capture video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/11rlaXAfMRogHs247D9Oj0LFA3iNTB7KK/view?usp=drivesdk

The problem was that when Miro Zoom App started, it asked to login. When clicking on Login on Miro Zoom App window, it launched the web browser (miro.com) asking to authorize to “Reinstall” (the Miro is shown as already installed on Zoom). By clicking on Reinstall (at miro.com page) it went to api.zoom.us reporting “The link is invalid.” error.

Hello!

 

I can’t sign in my Miro account through the Zoom app. It only allows me to use the app as if I didn’t have a Miro account.
