Amazon recently partnered with Zoom to bring the Zoom app to Amazon Fire TV. While this feature is technically only available on Fire TV Cube (2nd generation) and Amazon Fire TV Omni series TVs, there is a way to answer Zoom calls with other Amazon Fire TV devices. With that in mind, we’ve put together this explainer for using Zoom on Amazon Fire TV, no matter what device you’re using.
How to use Zoom on Amazon Fire TV
If you’re using a Fire TV Cube or an Amazon Fire TV Omni series TV, you’ll need to follow these steps to use Zoom on Amazon Fire TV.
- exist Amazon Fire TV Home, scroll to Look for Label.
- under Look for, choose search Tabs and Types soaring application.
- search soaring application.
- click soaring Apply and select download.
- After downloading the app, it should appear in your Amazon Fire TV Home.
After downloading the Zoom app, simply plug your webcam into the USB port of your Fire TV Cube or Omni Series TV. If you’re not sure which webcam to use, Amazon recommends the Logitech C920, C922x, or C310. From there, you can also use the built-in Alexa in Omni to say “Alexa, find Zoom” and “Alexa, join my Zoom meeting.”
After opening the Zoom app, you will be asked to join the meeting by providing your meeting ID and password. While a Zoom account is not required to join a meeting, you will need one if you plan to host a meeting in the future. It’s also worth pointing out that the Zoom app also offers paid and free options.
