WW Brings New Wellness Experience to Life With App for Zoom

Company Release - 07/21/2021

The global wellness company teams up with Zoom to inspire healthy habits, enhance in-meeting experiences and democratize access to health and wellness

NEW YORK, (July 21, 2021) — WW International, Inc. (NASDAQ: WW), a human-centric technology company powered by the world's leading commercial weight management program, announced today it has teamed up with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. for the launch of WW’s Wellness That Works™, a new app for Zoom delivering an embedded experience, seamlessly integrated within Zoom meetings. This new in-product app is now available in the Zoom App Marketplace.

WW’s Wellness that Works app for Zoom encourages users to adopt healthy habits from their virtual meetings - behind the screen and beyond - no matter where they are. To help with the impacts of a sedentary workday, Wellness That Works provides users with push notification reminders to move more, eat better and shift their mindset throughout the day or when they need it most. With this experience, WW leans into its core tenets of meeting people where they are along their weight-loss and wellness journey and reinforces the brand's credentials in behavior change science to inspire healthy routines.

“At WW, we’re on a mission to democratize wellness for all, and we’re excited to extend our collaboration with Zoom to help push our mission forward,” said Gail Tifford, Chief Brand Officer, WW. “Regardless of where employees are working now and in the future, they will continue to spend many hours sitting, behind their computers and on Zoom, and we see a great opportunity to inspire healthy habits during these moments and more.”

To encourage healthy habits, Zoom users worldwide who chose to add the Wellness That Works App for Zoom will have access to science-backed, behavior change tools and resources throughout their day such as:

  • Personalized stand and stretch push notifications at designated intervals between five and 30-minutes.
  • Cues and tips on how to stay hydrated to make sure you’re tracking your water intake.
  • Stress-relieving breathing techniques developed by WW’s behavior-change science team.
  • Weekly dinner inspiration and work-from-home snack ideas created by WW's leading nutrition and food experts.

“We’re thrilled to have WW’s Wellness that Works app for Zoom as part of our new offering to help keep our customers focused and in the right mindset as they head into their meetings”, said Ross Mayfield, Product Lead, Zoom Apps & Integrations, Zoom. “We’re excited that this integration will provide Zoom users with helpful tools to adopt healthy habits on and off the platform to enhance overall productivity.”

In-product Zoom Apps enable a seamless experience for using your preferred apps within Zoom, before, during and after a meeting. The Wellness That Works in-product integration will be accessible directly from Zoom meetings and the Zoom desktop client.
