Install Zoom on Nintendo Switch


Zoom video calls on the Raspberry Pi.
This is the full desktop app, so you can use virtual backgrounds and Gallery View!
This works by running the x86 Zoom Linux app inside the box86/box64 emulator.
Performance is good enough on the Pi4. Turning off HD video in Zoom's settings is recommended.

To run: Menu -> Internet -> Zoom
To run in a terminal: /opt/zoom/ZoomLauncher

Fortunately, Zoom is very easy to install on your Nintendo Switch in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Nintendo Switch.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Zoom.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Switchroot L4T Ubuntu Noble, which is currently version 5.1.2 Ubuntu Noble.
Zoom will run on L4T Ubuntu ARM64.
