How to use Zoom on the Fire TV Omni Series

All you need is a Fire TV Omni Series of any size and to follow these quick and easy steps:

  1. Grab a compatible webcam — one that is 720–1080p. We suggest the Logitech C920, C922x or C310.

Note, Zoom recommend a 1080p resolution with a 60–90 degree field of view from 6–10 feet away from the TV.

2. Plug the webcam directly into the TV USB port. We suggest placing the webcam above the TV for the best viewing angle.

3. Download the Zoom app from the Fire TV Appstore. You can simply ask, “Alexa, find Zoom.”

4. Once you’re logged into Zoom or accessing as a guest, join a meeting using your remote, or say, “Alexa, join my Zoom meeting.”

Note, the TV microphone will need to be turned on. Also, the Zoom app will only use audio from your TV speakers — you aren’t able to pair with a soundbar/speakers at this time.

That’s it! Zoom on Fire TV Omni Series is available now in the U.S. and Canada. We want to see how you and your family are enjoying Zoom on Fire TV Omni Series! Post a picture on social and tag @AmazonFireTV and @Zoom.
