How to Share Your iPhone, iPad and Android Screen in a Zoom Meeting

Phone sharing screen to Zoom meeting

Zoom has quickly exploded in popularity due to its remote conferencing and video chat capabilities. While not without its share of criticisms over privacy and security — including lying about data protection — the platform still sees millions of users meeting online, sharing screens and collaborating together while remote.

This guide shows you how to share your iPhone, iPad and Android screen so others can see it in a Zoom meeting. You can do this in two ways: Method 1 uses only your mobile device and is limited. Method 2 gives you more flexibility to multitask, use more features and share both a computer and mobile screen (including iPhone 12) with Reflector.

If you use both a computer and a mobile device for work, your best bet is to skip to method 2. You can share content from your mobile device while using your work computer, or you can share both screens in the Zoom meeting at the same time.  

How to share your iPhone, iPad and Android screen in a Zoom meeting

Method 1: Zoom mobile app 

This method only uses your phone/tablet. Multitasking is not available.

Step 1

Open the Zoom app on your phone or tablet.

Step 2

Start or join a meeting.

Step 3

Tap the Share Content button.

Step 4

A menu will appear listing content you can share. Tap “Screen.”

Step 5

A menu on your phone/tablet will pop up to indicate where you’ll share your screen. Select Zoom.

Step 6

Tap Start Broadcast. After a brief countdown, a message will let you know you are successfully sharing your screen with everyone in the meeting.

You won’t be able to see other meeting participants on screen or multitask with other apps on your device, but your colleagues will be able to see your mobile screen. This is how it will appear to them 

Share phone to Zoom natively

Note: You will only be able to see whats on your mobile device screen at this time. Zoom menus cut off parts of your shared screen in your colleagues' view.

Method 2: Use Reflector with the Zoom desktop app (multitask, more features, share better)

This method lets you share better. Multitask, use more features and facilitate meetings easier when you’re working remotely. It uses both your mobile device and your computer. Sharing this way allows you to do all of the following at the same time:

  • Share your mobile device screen (with option to share your computer screen as well) — including the iPhone 12
  • See your colleagues on your computer video chat  
  • Use your computer to take notes, browse the web and use other apps
  • Show all parts of your shared screen — nothing is cut off from view

Use a different videoconferencing platform? This method also works with Microsoft Teams, GoToMeeting, Google Meet, Cisco Webex, Slack and Discord.


Step 1

Download and install Reflector on your Mac or Windows computer.

Step 2

Make sure your computer and mobile device are connected to the same wifi network.

Step 3

Launch Reflector on your computer.

Step 4

Open Zoom on your computer and join a meeting.

Step 5

On your mobile device, open the screen mirroring/cast options and begin screen mirroring to Reflector.

Step 6

Important: To make sure your mobile device screen shares properly, hover over your device in Reflector and click the settings cog next to the device name. Ensure "Always on Top" and "Fullscreen" are toggled off.

Reflector device settings

These must be toggled off to successfully begin sharing your device screen over a videoconferencing platform like Zoom. If you prefer, you can toggle these settings back on after you begin presenting your computer screen.

Step 7

In Zoom on your computer, click the share button and select the option to share the window labeled Reflector. It will
include the name of your mobile device.

Now you’re wirelessly sharing your mobile screen to your Zoom meeting. You can present from your mobile device while working on your computer screen and seeing your teammates in video chat at the same time.

Everyone will be able to see what's on your phone screen. Learn how to turn off notifications while screen mirroring.

Get Reflector today to work, share and collaborate better.

Pro Tip:

You can share your whole desktop so your mobile device screen and computer screen are both visible to others in the Zoom meeting at the same time. To do this, just select “Desktop 1” instead of the name of your mobile device in Step 7.
