In this article, let us see how to invite the Fireflies.ai notetaker bot to your Zoom meetings.
How to use Fireflies with Zoom
There are 2 ways to use Fireflies with Zoom:
Method 1: Using the Zoom Native Integration
- You can go to Integrations from your Fireflies dashboard and click on the Zoom native integration app. This will transcribe calls directly recorded within Zoom. Learn more about this approach.

Method 2: Using the Fireflies.ai Notetaker Bot
- You can have the Fireflies.ai Notetaker Bot join as a participant to record and transcribe the Zoom meeting.
Important Settings for Method 2
If you are using the Notetaker Bot, you'll need to make sure your Zoom Settings are updated to support it.
- Go to your Zoom profile. Scroll down and make sure Only authenticated users can join meetings from the Web Client is turned off.
|Note: Because our AI assistant joins as a guest from the Zoom Web SDK, this needs to be updated for Fireflies to join your meetings reliably without any issues.|
Optional Zoom Settings to Ensure Smooth Capture
- Enabling these settings will ensure that the Fireflies.ai Notetaker Bot joins consistently and reliably every time.
Turn On Join Before Host
- On Zoom's Meeting Options, we highly recommend that you check Enable join before host setting so that Fireflies can join on time if you are running late to the meeting.
Turn On/Off Waiting Room
- If you want to explicitly approve Fireflies into a meeting at the start of the Zoom call, you can turn this on. It’s just another layer of security in case you don’t want it in the meeting.
After configuring the above settings, you can invite Fireflies to your meeting.
