This article explains how to use Chromecast, Roku, and Airplay to cast a Zoom meeting from your computer or smartphone.

Mirror Your Laptop Zoom Meeting With Chromecast

A Chromecast device is one of the simplest methods to cast a Zoom conference to your TV. They’re cheap, and the cast capability is included into every Google browser, as well as the Google Home app for Android and iOS.

You can use Zoom screen casting whether you’re on a Windows 10 or a Mac laptop, as long as you’re using the Chrome browser.

1. Start your Zoom conference on your laptop as you normally would. Wait until everyone is connected and you can see the other participants’ video feeds.

2. Open the Chrome browser in a new window after you’re satisfied the conference is working properly. To access the menu, click the three dots in the upper right corner. From the menu, choose Cast.

3. In Chrome, here is a screenshot of the Cast option.
Choose the Chromecast device where you want your Zoom conference to be mirrored. Select Cast desktop from the Sources dropdown menu.

4. A pop-up box will appear, allowing you to choose which desktop monitor you want to cast to. Select the one that has the Zoom conference open and click the Share option.

5. In Windows, a screenshot of a Zoom meeting being shared.
The Zoom conference will now mirror to your TV with all of the participant video streams.

Note: Keep in mind that, even if you can see everyone in the meeting on the TV, the webcam on your laptop is still the one that attendees use to view you, so keep your laptop in front of you. You’ll appear more natural during the meeting if you keep your gaze on the attendees.

Mirror Your Mobile Zoom Meeting With Chromecast

You must have the Google Home app loaded on your mobile device to mirror an active Zoom meeting, whether it’s an Android or an iOS device.

1. As usual, use the Zoom mobile client to start or join your Zoom conference.

2. Open the Google Home app once you’ve connected and confirmed the meeting is working regularly. Choose the Chromecast device where you want your Zoom conference to be cast.

3. Select Cast my screen at the bottom of that device’s screen. The Chromecast mobile screen mirroring capability is now available.

4. Return to your Zoom conference by switching apps. You’ll notice that the Zoom meeting is now displayed on your TV.

Mirror a Windows 10 Zoom Meeting to Roku

Because casting a Zoom conference from an iOS device isn’t currently enabled, you can use a Roku player to mirror a Zoom meeting from your laptop or mobile device instead. To show your Zoom conference on our TV from your Windows 10 laptop, follow these steps:

1. Select Devices from the Start menu. Change the settings for Bluetooth and other devices. Add a Bluetooth or other device to the list.


2. Select Wireless display or dock in the Add a device window.

3. On the next page, you’ll find that your laptop (if it’s connected to the same Wi-Fi network) has detected the Roku device. When you select this device, the Roku device will connect as a second monitor.

4.  To have Roku replicate the screen that’s displaying your Zoom conference, select Change projection mode, then Duplicate.

 

Mirror a Mobile Zoom Meeting to Roku

You’ll need to have your Roku device set up and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your phone, as well as the Roku app installed.

1. As usual, use the Zoom mobile client to start or join your Zoom conference.

2. Search for Smart View in Android Settings, then press to open it. Smart View should be enabled.

3. On the next page, choose a Roku device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Android phone.

4. When asked when you want to start casting, select Start now.

5. To mirror a mobile Zoom conference to Roku, follow these steps.
Return to your Zoom client app, rotate your phone to landscape mode, and your Zoom conference will now be mirrored on your TV.

Use Airplay to Mirror From Mac or iOS

Roku mirroring isn’t compatible with Apple devices, but that doesn’t mean Apple users are out of luck.

Using Airplay and Apple TV, you can mirror your device from a macOS laptop or an iOS device. Ascertain that your laptop or iOS device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Apple TV you intend to mirror.

Note: Roku is actively working on Airplay 2 support for streaming entertainment from Apple devices.

  • Open the Control Center on your iOS device and tap Screen Mirroring to start Air Playing. Then tap the Apple TV or any Airplay-enabled device. That TV will now be mirrored with your Zoom meeting.
  • To Airplay from your Mac, choose Apple TV (or another Airplay-compatible display) from the dropdown menu by selecting the Airplay icon at the top of your Mac’s menu bar. Your Zoom meeting should now be visible on your television.
