Are you looking to learn how to share your screen on Zoom while using your iPhone? Zoom is the world’s leading video conferencing platform, and it has come a long way in terms of usability and features. It can be used for business meetings, virtual hangouts, or just about any video chat that requires more than two people. Here we’ll show you how to share your screen on Zoom from your iPhone.

The first step is to launch the Zoom app on your iPhone. Once you have done this, make sure that you have signed into your account. If not, you will need to do so in order to access the sharing feature. After signing in, tap the “Meetings” tab at the bottom of the app.

Next, find the meeting which you want to join and tap the “Join” button at the top right of the meeting information page. This will take you into the meeting room where you can start or join an existing conversation.

Once inside a meeting, find the “Share Screen” option at the bottom of your screen and select it. You will then be presented with two options: either share your entire device or a specific app window. Choose whichever option suits your needs best and follow through with it by selecting “Share” once again when prompted.

At this point, everyone in the meeting who has access to view your screen will be able to do so until you decide to end it or switch back over to something else. To end sharing your screen, tap “Stop Sharing” at any time during the conversation (located next to where it says “Screen Sharing is On”).

That’s it! You now know how to share screens on Zoom from an iPhone device! By following these simple steps, you can quickly join a meeting and start sharing whatever content you need with others in no time at all!

Unable to Share iPhone Screen on Zoom

If you are trying to share your iPhone screen on Zoom, there are a few things you should check first. Make sure that you have the latest version of the Zoom app installed on your device and that you have given Zoom permission to access your microphone and camera in your device’s settings. Additionally, make sure that you are using an iOS device with OS 11 or higher; if your device’s operating system is lower than 11, then it won’t be able to share its screen on Zoom.

If all of these conditions are met and you still can’t share your iPhone screen on Zoom, then please contact Zoom Support for further assistance.

Finally, it’s possible that your device or internet connection is causing issues with screen sharing. Try restarting your device and refreshing your internet connection before attempting to screen share again.
