How To Create A Video-Conferencing App Like Zoom

July 27, 2020 | Ananya S

In the first part, I explained the various features your video conferencing app should include. Now, let’s break down the process of creating an app such as Zoom which you can introduce to the market for success.

These are the several different components you will need to create your own video conferencing app.

Back-End Development

To get started, you will need Back-End development. This refers to the server-side of the development where the primary focus is on how your video conferencing app will work. There are going to be three components you need to look at a server, an application, and a database.

Lastly, you also need to ensure that creating your server from scratch is better in the long-run than using readily-available BaaS solutions.

I understand that the software technical jargon can seem jarring but the software development team you choose later will understand how to deliver the back-end development for your video conferencing app.

Front-End Development

Now that you’ve got a sense of what Back-End development is, you will also need Front-End development for your video conference app. Front-End Development refers to the development of visual elements that users see and interact within your application. After the development of the server-side is completed, it’s very important to have a smooth and interactive user interface. Develop a simple and attractive UI for better user engagement in your video conferencing app.


An important step in developing your video conference app is functionality. How well does your app run? How well does it test? To start off, you will need to begin by integrating the basic features for your app into your solution. Once the app’s popularity grows, you can increase its functionality over time.

Tool Kit Starter

Once you’ve passed the software hurdles and decided on the platform you want to develop your app on, it is time to take a look at the technological aspect of your case. Listed below are the starter kits you can use to decide what operating system to build your video conferencing app through.


Programming Language: Swift

ToolKit: Apple Code

VideoChat: WebRTC



Programming Language: Java or Kotlin

ToolKit: Android Studio

VideoChat: WebRTC

SDK: Android Software Development Kit (SDK)

Choosing the perfect Software Development Team

Once you have decided on the video conferencing app’s features and functionalities, and chosen your platform to build the app, it is time to choose the right team that can help make your app a reality onto the market.
