Download Zoom and connect to TV

The video conferencing service allows a certain number of people to simultaneously communicate and discuss important issues. And if you need to see everything on the big screen, then it’s wise to start using Zoom on your TV. But after studying the official site, it becomes clear that a separate version of the program for TV has not yet been created. What to do in such a situation? If a TV with an Android TV set-top box, then you will need to install the application in a standard way (as for a smartphone), and if not, apply workarounds. We will talk about this further.

How to download Zoom to TV?

Wondering how to download Zoom on LG, Samsung or Xiaomi TV? Then you need to understand that you can only install the application on a device with Android TV support. If you just need to display the conference on a large screen, then you will need to use new technologies (broadcast or HDMI cable). But let’s dwell on the first case for now, when there is an Android TV:

    1. We open a browser on a computer or phone, and then go to the official website of the service ( https://zoom.us/client/latest/zoom.apk ). Please note that following this link will automatically save the APK file.
    2. We go to the explorer on the computer or the file manager on the smartphone. You need to locate the downloaded file and then transfer it to any external media. For example, it can be USB-Flash or a portable hard drive. It all depends on what connection formats your TV supports.

 

  1. And now, in order to use Zoom on a TV, you need to connect a USB drive to the device. And if the APK file is already on the smartphone, then the phone can also be connected via a cable – there will be no difference.
  2. On the TV, open the explorer, and then click on the Zoom application. And as a result, you need to click “Install”, and then wait for the completion of the procedure. The procedure in this case is the same as on any Android smartphone.

Therefore, you now know if Zoom can be installed on an Android TV-enabled TV. All that remains is to launch the application in the standard way and authorize in your account. If the TV has a built-in microphone, then you can even be an active participant in any conference.

How to install Zoom on a Smart TV?

But don’t forget about TVs with Smart TVs, which may also need to install Zoom. Will it be possible to do this? As it turned out, the developers did not create a separate TV program, so in this case workarounds need to be used. For example, using an HDMI cable, it will be possible to activate the transmission of an image from a computer or tablet.

And if the TV has built-in Wi-Fi, then you can turn to the wireless method. Nowadays, many smartphones support the “Broadcast” option, which allows you to transfer a picture from the screen via the Internet. The only condition is that the TV and the phone must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If so, then we perform the following steps from the instructions:

    1. Open the TV settings and activate the Miracast or Screen Mirroring option. Once again, we remind you that the name directly depends on the device model, as well as the firmware version.
    2. Go to your smartphone and turn on the “Broadcast” mode.

 

  1. In the list that appears, select the desired TV, and then connect to it. A notification will appear on the screen in which you need to select “Ok” or “Yes”. Now you can use Zoom on Smart TV.

What will happen as a result? And the fact that the image from the screen of your smartphone will be shown on TV. Therefore, it remains to open Zoom and connect to the desired conference. Of the advantages, we highlight the fact that you can use the camera and microphone of the phone.

Thus, we examined how to display Zoom on a TV and use the service comfortably. As for the settings, in this case they are standard. And for authorization in the application, you will need to enter your email and password – everything is the same as always. Have questions? We are waiting for them in the comments!
