While in a meeting, you can share the following content:
- Entire desktop or phone screen
- One or more specific applications
- A portion of your screen
- A locally stored video
- Device audio
- Content from a second camera
- iPhone/iPad screen
Sharing a video clip in your meeting or webinar is easier than ever with the built-in video player for shared content. Video files can be opened within Zoom’s built-in video player and shared, without other participants viewing the playback controls. Sharing your video with the built-in player, instead of as part of a shared screen or application, improves the quality of shared videos, providing a smoother and more stable viewing experience for your viewers.
See the Sharing and playing a video help article for more information.
While you can share PowerPoint presentations or share Keynote presentations in meetings, you can also share your presentation as a Virtual Background for an immersive sharing experience. Sharing your slides as a Virtual Background allows your participants to view your video imposed directly on the screen share. It also allows you to manage your presentation directly from within the Zoom meeting controls.
Note: Sound, transitions, or animations embedded in slides are not supported.
If the presenter records the meeting locally, the recording will also have the video embedded on top of the slides. If the host or another participant records the meeting locally, they must be on at least 5.2.0 or higher for the video to be embedded on the slides. If they are on any version older than 5.2.0 or record to the cloud, the recording will record the slides and video as a normal screen share recording.
See the Sharing slides as a Virtual Background help article for more information.
Zoom screen sharing allows you to share the desktop, window, application, or audio/video. If audio is an important part of your shared content, you can also send the computer's audio to the remote attendees when sharing, providing a more professional and immersive sharing experience.
See the Sharing computer sound during screen sharing help article for more information.
The remote control feature allows you to take control of another participant's screen in a meeting. You can either request remote control of another participant's screen or the other participant can give control to you. Once given permission, you can control their mouse and keyboard, and even copy text from their screen to yours.
See the Requesting or giving remote control help article for more information.
Meeting andwebinarr participants who are viewing a shared screen can switch to side-by-side mode, which allows them to see the shared screen alongside either the Speaker view or Gallery view, depending on which view they choose. They can also adjust the location of the separator between the shared screen and video to change the relative size of each side.
Webinar hosts can also specify the attendees view of shared screen is in side-by-side mode.
See the Side-by-side mode for screen sharing help article for more information.
Hosts using the Zoom desktop client can allow multiple participants share their screens simultaneously during a meeting. This can be useful for a real-time comparison of documents or other materials by participants. To make full use of this feature, enable the dual monitors option in the Zoom client settings.
Zoom allows for iOS screen sharing from iPhone and iPad, using the Zoom desktop client. You can share wirelessly for both Mac and PC, utilizing iOS Screen Mirroring, or you can connect your iOS device to your Mac computer with a cable to share.
You can also share your entire iOS device screen using Screen Recording on iOS 11 or later.
See the Sharing your screen (iOS) with the Zoom desktop client help article for more information.
Zoom Whiteboard functions as a visual collaboration tool, providing both on-site and remote teams with a space to capture ideas both in real-time and asynchronously.
New whiteboarding features include advanced shapes and connectors, adding, dragging and dropping images, while sticky notes and messages can be used to highlight important ideas.
Newly created canvases can be integrated into existing workflows across video and meeting spaces and Zoom Whiteboard can be shared internally or externally with anyone that has a Zoom account, with the option to export and save.
