Plug in your laptop via HDMI   
The simplest and easiest way to get Zoom onto your TV is just to plug your laptop into your TV using the HDMI port.
Most TVs (whether smart or not) will have an HDMI port – although many modern laptops don’t. If so, you may need a USB-C-to-HDMI dongle that can make the connection for you.
When the two devices are plugged in, you’ll see and hear your Zoom call on the TV screen. However, there are a couple of drawbacks: 

  • Your TV doesn’t have a camera or a microphone so you’ll still be relying on the laptop’s webcam and mic to pick you up. Bear this in mind when you position your laptop next to the TV. 
  • Secondly, the laptop will be tethered to the TV so you can’t just get up and walk around with it, the same way you would if you were wirelessly casting to the TV. 

 

Chromecast/Android
If you’re an Android user, you can use a Chromecast to ‘cast’ your phone screen to the TV.
Just as you would with Netflix or Disney+, you need to find the Cast option (which looks like a WiFi signal meeting a box) and tap it to make your phone scan for available devices. 
Often, you’ll be able to find the option to Cast by pulling down the quick settings menu from the top of your phone screen. When you tap on your Chromecast (or Nvidia Shield) you should see your phone’s display replicated on the TV. Then just open Zoom as normal and watch it on your TV. 
Chromecast also works with laptops – but make sure you cast the whole desktop rather than just the tab in Google Chrome. Zoom wants to run its own app so you’ll need to mirror that rather than just the tab in your web browser.
If you don’t have a Chromecast, then you can use an app called ApowerMirror to cast directly from your phone to your TV. You’ll need to download the app on both devices and make sure they’re running on the same WiFi network to form a bridge.  

Airplay
iPhone, iPad, or Mac book can be used as Airplay, and you can connect your Zoom app easily to your Apple TV, and this will allow you a display on your TV. By mirroring, you can see a second screen that can reflect things from the first screen. 

  1. If you are connecting your Zoom app with your Apple TV, make sure it has updated software on your iOS devices and your Apple TV. 
  1. Your IOS device and Apple should be connected to the same Wi-Fi to make it run smoothly; otherwise, it might not work. 
  1. Tap for Screen mirror. 
  1. Select your Apple TV name from the list, and this will mirror up to your screen with your Apple TV. 
  1. You can now open the Zoom app and make calls or connect it smoothly to your devices to experience better quality on an enormous screen. 

Mac also is an excellent option to have experience with an Airplay display. By opting for it, you can see the icon bar at the top of the screen, so by clicking to it, you can start the TV through your Mac screen and get it Zoomed on a gigantic screen. You can also connect it to an updated television which has the facility of Airplay. Any latest model can give you this facility to communicate to Airplay for having an experience of the big screen through Zoom. You can also Airplay Zoom through your phone on your TV.
