Once a participant is in the meeting, follow these steps to help them start sharing their screen.


  • Android 5.0 or above

Step 1: Show meeting controls

Convo guide:

When you are inside the Zoom application on your phone, you'll see a few buttons at the bottom. If you don’t see them, you can tap anywhere on the screen to get them to show.

Step 2: Share your screen

Convo guide:

You should see Audio, Video, Share content, Participants, and three dots over to the right. "Share content" and “Chat” will be important for us today.

Any questions?

First, I'd like you to share your screen with me. Tap on the arrow that says Share content

Step 3: Select screen

Convo guide:

Then, tap screen.

Step 3: Start broadcast

Convo guide:

You may see a “sensitive info” alert. This is just letting you know what the screen share will be sharing.

It also may ask you to give Zoom permission to display over other apps, toggle yes. Then hit the back arrow.

Tap Start Now (maybe)

Step 3: You’re broadcasting

Convo guide:

Great, now I can see your phone screen!

The screen share will start and Zoom will continue to run in the background. You can now choose the app that you would like to share and can tap the arrow to open this menu to stop sharing.

Step 4: Turn Share Audio ON

If you need to hear your participant's audio during the session, you’ll first need to make sure the settings are ready. Follow the steps here to set up an Android device to share device audio.

If the settings are turned on, you’ll see the Share Audio: OFF/ON option. Tap share audio to turn it on.
