How to Enable Google Meet / Teams / Webex meetings on Zoom Rooms? | Direct Guest Join for Zoom Rooms

Hey, there! Nowadays, many people need to join a meeting through a 3rd party provider such as Webex, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams, and they're using Zoom Rooms, so today I'll show you how to enable Direct Guest Join in order to help your users be wherever they need to be.

Direct Guest Join for Zoom Rooms

Before getting started, make sure your Zoom Rooms for Mac or Windows are running 5.13.0 or later, Zoom Rooms Appliances must be running 5.15.0 or higher, and your controller for Android / iOS / Windows must be running 5.13.0 or later.

Enabling 3rd party Interoperability for Several Rooms at Once (Location Hierarchy)

The best way to enable a feature for all rooms is through Location Hierarchy, but you can also enable it for only one room.

Sign in to Zoom web portal, and click on Room Management > Zoom Rooms.

Zoom Device Management 

Go over your location directory, and choose one location (floor) to enable the feature, I'll choose my place called Kevin Urena, but I can also select SEs or Americas, for instance.

On your location, click on Floor Settings.

Clik on Meeting tab.

Ensure that Support and Show Screen boxes are checked.

Also, you will see Connection Method prioritization menu, I recommend you set Dial SIP as the higher priority, and Direct Guest Join as the second one and a back up, but it depends on your need.

Note: If CVI (Cloud Video Interop) were missed, Direct Guest Join would be used and acted as a back up.

In case you are looking for locking the setting, click on the padlock, and immediately, a verification dialog display will pop up, select Lock.
