Dear Upwork Community,
Zoom is coming to Upwork! We know many of you have requested updates to Upwork’s video/call feature. Given that our Terms of Service require all pre-contract conversations to take place via Upwork, a lot of customers have requested access to an improved resource for making calls on our platform. We heard your concerns and feedback, and we’re responding.
We are excited to announce that Upwork is rolling out an integration with Zoom that will allow users to quickly initiate Zoom calls right from the Upwork platform.
To help make sure this integration is seamless, we’re making the new feature available to a small subset of randomly selected Upwork users to start. Once we’re comfortable with how everything is working for those initial users, all Upwork users will have access to the new Zoom integration. Be on the lookout for the rollout of this feature in Upwork Messages!
We have included a few more details here.
Best, The Upwork Team
We are gradually adding users and while we don't have an ETA that we could share, we'll offer it as quickly as possible. Thank you for your interest!

Great feature here, next up is scheduling inside of UpWork (that syncs with calendars like Google).
Very happy to see this moving in the right direction.
Upwork could, for example, use Calendly, which it already uses to schedule interviews with users.
