How to enjoy zoom from your tv

One of the easiest ways if you have a Mac, is to use AirPlay and Apple TV. This will let you mirror your display on your TV via Apple TV. Mirroring is where a second screen shows what's on the first screen.

  • See an icon on the bar at the top of your screen and then click to share your Mac screen with your TV.

If you have an iPhone, or iPad use AirPlay and Apple TV. This will let you mirror your display on your TV via Apple TV. Mirroring is where a second screen shows what's on the first screen.

  • As always with Apple devices, ensure the software is up-to-date on both the iOS or device as well as the Apple TV. 

  • Make sure your iOS device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Apple TV otherwise it won't work. 

  • Pull down the Action Center from the top right of your iPhone or iPad on Face ID-enabled iPhones or any iPads that are able to run iPadOS. You need to swipe up from the bottom on other Touch ID devices. 

  • Tap Screen Mirroring.

  • Tap the name of your Apple TV that appears in the list. Your screen will then mirror to the Apple TV.

  • Open Zoom and make the call.

Connecting via cable means you don't have to worry about dropping the wireless signal, so can be more stable - but it also means your source device is then tethered to the TV, so you can't just go for a walk. It might also mean that the camera and microphone are further away from you than you want them to be. But wired is also very simple. If you have HDMI on your laptop, plug into it and plug into your TV.
