How To Use Zoom Meeting on Roku? 2022

It is common nowadays to attend online classes, video conferencing, office meetings, and tutorials through Zoom meetings and other video conferencing apps. But doing these video calls on a big screen through your TV will give you a better experience. So here in this article, You will learn to use Zoom on a Roku streaming device without any trouble.

Let’s start with a brief intro about “Why do you need it?”

Zoom is one of the most popular apps which are used for meetings ever since the pandemic hit us. And most of us have tried using the app on our Roku streaming device, but unfortunately, we were not able to locate the app on the device’s app store. Roku does not have the app on its store. 

Yes, that is correct, the app is not available on the Roku streaming device app store. And it does make sense for Roku not to add the app to their store, as the device is connected to a TV, and zoom is a meeting app that uses a camera, although, we do have the option to turn it off, nevertheless, it does use it. And no TV comes with a camera built-in. So, for Roku to have the zoom app on their store does not make any kind of sense as their primary audience is the people who own a TV.

It was a bit disappointing that the app was present in the app store, but after scratching my head for a while, I was able to find a way to get it done. It was pretty easy, and everyone can do it.

I hope you do find the information which I am about to provide you to be helpful and meaningful. And the steps which I provide should be very easy for anyone, and you should not find any kind of difficulty in following the steps which I am about to mention.

What do you need?

Like always, in order to achieve something, you would need a few things beforehand. Once these things are with you, you should be able to proceed further. Here’s the list of things that you would need:

  • Roku streaming device – the primary requirement would be the most important one. You would need the Roku device.
  • Smartphone – the second requirement is almost as important. You would need a smartphone that has the capability of casting. Since most smartphones have that option, I would recommend getting one.
  • Wi-Fi – You would need a Wi-Fi network with a good internet connection to establish the connection and get the app to run on your Roku streaming device.

Once you have all the things which I have mentioned above, you should be able to proceed further in successfully establishing the connection.
