Is there a way to Remotely Zoom In and Out while recording a video on my Samsung Ultra23?

I shoot my daughter's competition cheer team.  I have my phone on a tripod and capture the full team for reviewing the footage later. 

 I have to Zoom In and Out several times during the routine to attempt to keep the full team in the frame. THis means pinching in and out.

 

I was hoping someone knows a way that I can use a remote to do this without touching the screen.   Maybe a Bluetooth remote, maybe a wearable watch, maybe new SPen feature?

I'll go first.  You can use the S Pen and depress the side button on the S Pen while making gestures.

It's a bit tedious to find -  Settings / Advanced features / S Pen / Air actions ... and scroll down to Camera.

I tried it using the Video camera and while I could change the zoom feature, I couldn't get it to perform as you probably wanted it do  .... though this is on the right track me thinks.  

I hope this helped a little.

Thanks Dave.  Awesome advise as I learned some things.  Unfortunately, this doesn't help with the ZOOM IN and OUT FEATURE.  

I have found several bluetooth hand held remotes that will snap pictures and even control a power point from your phone, but none control the ZOOM IN or OUT feature.  weird.

Set it up as described here and don't forget to hold the power button during the gesture. It works for me without a problem.
