Google introduced this move to The Verge as something completely normal. Google spokesman Jose Castaneda, stated:

Recently, our security team informed the employees who use it Zoom Desktop Client that will no longer run into corporate computers, as it does not meet the standards security that we have set for applications. Employees who use Zoom to keep in touch with family and friends can continue to do so via a web browser or by mobile phone ”.
In addition to Google's decision to ban Zoom on PCs, Microsoft is coming to make the situation even more difficult. Taking advantage of the security issues of the application, it promotes its own platform Teams, saying it is the best alternative for both business and home users.
