Zoom update disabled Google Calendar’s Zoom Scheduler

Something needs your attention.

Zoom released version 5 this week which disabled Zoom Scheduler, the Chrome extension or Firefox Add-on. The fix could be as easy as clicking Chrome’s "Something needs your attention" yellow button located at the top right. Firefox is more direct. The "Make it a Zoom meeting" button is still there when you view the event’s More options and when you click it, "Your Zoom Chrome extension session has expired" error message appears. Please login again. Yes, this is strange coming from Firefox, but true.
