How do you easily add contacts to your Zoom account?


Normally, when you set up a meeting via the Zoom app, you can invite people to join the meeting through contacts, but if the contacts of the individuals you want to invite are not saved in your account, you have to enter each of them individually' email addresses, yet you can save time and effort significantly by adding them to your account.

You can do this either by adding each contact one by one, or you can import contacts from another service, such as Google, Microsoft Exchange, or Microsoft 365, and then you can simply easily select the contacts you want to invite to the meeting.
First: How to add an individual contact to your Zoom account:

Zoom's contact list by default already contains the names of those in your organization who use the same account at the company level, but if you want to add third-party contacts, you should invite them via email, and after they accept your invitation, you can chat with them and share files, and if they don't have an account, they can create an account when you accept your invitation.

To do this, follow the following steps:

  • Open the Zoom app on your computer.
  • On the home screen, tap the Contact tab at the top.
  • Press the (+) tag and then select Invite a Zoom Contact from the list.


  • On the next screen, enter the email address of the person you want to invite, and then click on the Invite (Invitation) option.
  • You'll see a pop-up message asking you to confirm that the invitation has been sent, click the ok(OK) option.
  • The other recipient will receive an email invitation with a link that must be clicked.
  • After doing so, they will be asked to sign in to their service account or create a new one if they don't already have an account.
  • After you sign in, you must press the approval button to accept your invitation.
  • The person will be automatically added to your contact list in the Zoom app.

After you add it to your contact list, you can now apply many different actions, such as: make video calls by clicking on the video icon, or you can click on the More icon to do more, such as:

  • You can choose to communicate with him by video or without it.
  • Alert you when they sign in to the service.
  • Highlight this contact with a star as a favorite.
  • Block or delete the contact from the list.
  • Clear the chat history.

Contacts saved in your account can also be easily accessed when you want to invite them to a meeting, and to do so, follow the following steps:

  • Open the app, then select New Metting(New Meeting).
  • Press the arrow at the top next to the participant's icon, and then select the Invite option.
  • You'll see your contact list.
  • Click on the names of the people you want to invite, then click on the Invite option.

Second: How to add a complete list to contacts:

You can add a full address book to your contact list in the Zoom app, where you can withdraw contacts from other services, such as Google, Microsoft Exchange, or Microsoft 365, and to do so, follow these steps:

  • In the Zoom main app window, tap the Contacts tab above.
  • On the left side of the screen that shows you, click on the Cloud Contacts option, and then click on the link below (connect a contact book).

  • You'll see a pop-up tab, with a window that includes the three services: Google, Exchange, and Office 365.
  • Click on the service from which you want to import your contact address book.

  • Select your email account if asked to do so and allow the necessary access permissions.
  • You'll see a message telling you that importing contacts has worked.
  • Go back to zoom again, then tap the Cloud Contacts option and you'll see the name of each contact in the service you've imported from.

Note: Any additions, deletions, or modifications you make to your foreign service contact list will automatically sync with the Zoom app.
