Zoom, the widely used video conferencing app, has now landed on Apple TV 4K, granting users the ability to engage in meetings right from their TV using a compatible iPhone or iPad.
Termed as “Zoom for Home TV,” this app leverages the Continuity Camera feature on iOS devices, catering specifically to initiating and participating in meetings via your TV screen. While it may not encompass all the features found in Zoom’s primary applications, it offers some notable functionalities.
For those keen on using Zoom via Apple TV 4K using the Continuity Camera feature, having an iPhone or iPad with the latest iOS/iPad version is a prerequisite. With this setup, users can effortlessly display their device’s camera feed directly on the Apple TV, without the need for any additional mounts or stands. Notably, intelligent iOS features such as Center Stage assist in keeping the camera focused on the speaker, ensuring a seamless video conferencing experience.
The Zoom app on Apple TV introduces several additional features. It includes calendar integration, conveniently showcasing shortcuts to upcoming scheduled meetings for easy access. Users can initiate or join meetings with both video and audio functionalities, engage in in-meeting chats, invite contacts to join sessions, and even participate in breakout rooms. Accessible for free through the Apple TV App Store, the app does require a Zoom account for usage.
