Videoconferencing comes to the big screen

What to Know

  • If you have a Mac or iPhone, and an Apple TV, use AirPlay.

This article outlines how to cast a Zoom meeting from your computer or smartphone using Chromecast, Roku, and AirPlay.

Mirror Your Laptop Zoom Meeting With Chromecast

One of the easiest ways to cast a zoom meeting to your TV is using a Chromecast device. They’re inexpensive, and the cast feature comes included with every Google browser as well as the Google Home app on your Android or iOS device.

Whether you’re using a Windows 10 or a Mac laptop, so long as you’re using the Chrome browser you can enable Zoom screen casting.

  1. Launch your Zoom meeting as you normally would on your laptop. Wait until everyone is connected and you can view the video feeds of other participants.

  2. Once you’re sure the meeting is working properly, open the Chrome browser in another window. Select the three dots at the upper right to open the menu. Select Cast from the menu.

  5. Now, the Zoom meeting with all of the participant video streams will mirror to your TV.

    Keep in mind that even though you can watch the TV to see everyone in the meeting, your laptop webcam is still the one participants use to see you, so try to keep your laptop in front of you. This will keep you looking toward the participants and you’ll appear more natural during the meeting.

Mirror Your Mobile Zoom Meeting With Chromecast

The process to mirror an active Zoom meeting on your mobile device, whether it’s an Android or an iOS device, requires you to have the Google Home app installed.

  1. Launch or connect to your Zoom meeting using the Zoom mobile client as normal.

  2. Once connected and you’ve confirmed the meeting is working normally, open the Google Home app. Select the Chromecast device where you want to cast your Zoom meeting.

  3. At the bottom of that device screen, select Cast my screen. This enables the Chromecast mobile screen mirroring feature.

  4. Switch apps back to your Zoom meeting. You’ll see that your TV is now displaying the Zoom meeting.

    Make sure to turn your phone to landscape mode so that the Zoom meeting fills the entire TV screen.

Mirror a Windows 10 Zoom Meeting to Roku

You can’t use a Roku device to cast a Zoom meeting from an iOS device since that isn’t yet supported, but you can use it as an alternative to mirror a Zoom meeting from your laptop or mobile device. To display your Zoom meeting on our TV from your Windows 10 laptop:

  1. Select the Start menu and type Devices. Select Bluetooth & other devices settings. Select Add Bluetooth or other device.

  3. On the next screen, you’ll see that your laptop has detected the Roku device (if it’s on the same Wi-Fi network). Select this device and the Roku device will initially connect as another monitor.

    Depending on your Roku screen mirroring options, you may need to use your Roku remote to accept the screen mirroring request.

  4. Select Change projection mode, and then select Duplicate to have Roku duplicate the screen that’s displaying your Zoom meeting.

Mirror a Mobile Zoom Meeting to Roku

You will need to have your Roku device already set up, on the same Wi-Fi network as your phone, and have the Roku app installed on your phone.

  1. Launch or connect to your Zoom meeting using the Zoom mobile client as normal.

  2. Open Android Settings and search for Smart View, then tap to open. Enable Smart View.

  3. On the next screen, select the Roku device on the same Wi-Fi network as your Android phone that you want to mirror to. 

  4. Select Start now when asked whether you want to start casting.

Use AirPlay to Mirror From Mac or iOS

Just because Roku mirroring doesn’t work with Apple devices doesn’t mean Apple users are out of luck.

You can mirror your device using AirPlay and Apple TV from either a macOS laptop or an iOS device. Make sure your laptop or iOS device is on the same Wi-Fi network as the Apple TV you plan to mirror to.

Roku is currently working on supporting streaming content from Apple devices with AirPlay 2.

  • To AirPlay from your iOS device, open the Control Center and tap Screen Mirroring. Then tap the Apple TV or other AirPlay-compatible display. Your Zoom meeting will now be mirrored on that TV.
  • To AirPlay from your Mac, select the AirPlay icon at the top of your Mac’s menu bar and then select Apple TV (or other AirPlay-compatible display) from the dropdown menu. Your Zoom meeting should now display on the TV.
  • How do I share my screen on Zoom?

    To share your screen in a Zoom meeting, select Share Screen at the bottom of Zoom, choose the program or window you want to share, then select Share.

    To change your background on Zoom before a meeting, go to Settings > Virtual Background and select an image. During a meeting, click the Up-arrow above Stop Video and select Choose Virtual Background.
