Etymology : Given the circumstances of the pandemic where life is basically all virtual now, society has turned to using a virtual meeting platform (also an app) called Zoom that allows us to communicate, teach, do conferences and so forth. Thus, the act of engaging with this app to do these tasks has now become a verb. The noun itself has been used in a verb context.
