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, 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.

Share Content button on Zoom mobile app

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. 

Zoom mobile app Start Broadcast
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 GoToMeeting 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

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.

Not sure how? Check these out:

Step 6

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.

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 6.
