Zoom for pinephone
#1
I tried to install Zoom but...

Quote:package architecture (amd64) does not match system (arm64)

Any idea if this will become available for arm?

Thanks

You'll have to lobby Zoom to release arm64 binaries. They've addressed a request for them on their forums, previously, pretty much stating that enough customers will have to show interest in arm64 binaries. So you'll want to reach out to Zoom directly, since no one here is connected to it directly.
That or you can wait for one of the Android builds to be functionally completed, and install it there.

While an older article, this may be a good primer on why to avoid Zoom whenever possible.

Apologies for the off topic post; tophneal's reply solves the thread.

Thank you for the warning. As in the article says, many of us do not have the option, since our companies use zoom for meetings.

I think from when this article was written, Zoom has added encryption. Anyway, I get your point...

Encryption with a backdoor is as destructive as communicating in cleartext - someone is slurping your data.

Zoom is a bad faith operator - you cannot trust their software because they are required under Chinese rule to comply with design choices that give the government access to the streams. China is known to be harvesting biometrics and personal data and are actively engaged in sowing dissent in the West.

They keep reporting fixes for complaints, such as "added encryption," but on review, the fixes are not secure. They have an unremovable deliberate man in the middle hole in their service that won't go away. It's a feature, not a bug, and it's not intended to make your life better.

We're in a globalized economy and China is ignoring inconvenient things like privacy rights and civil liberties, and there's no mechanism to hold them accountable. It's terrible that all modern technology is now dependent on Chinese factories, but you can start moving the world in a better direction by making good consumer decisions about software.
