Sadly no you cant however you can possibly mirror your phone to your TV? This maybe a way round it. I have not tried this myself with Zoom but have with other things. Might be worth a try. I am sorry I cant be of more help, someone else may pick up the chat and suggest other options as well so keep an eye. 

Thank you and keep safe

@DrPepper1  whilst have not screen mirrored Zoom  or video calling apps myself yet, a few methods   you could try with some detail in the links.   Depends to extent on handset but you can use Smart View/Smart Things, Chromecast and other software such as Apower Mirror.

If you have a laptop with a  decent  screen size  that would also be an alternative if desired.

Hi @DrPepper1, good to hear Smart View worked well with Zoom.

 

Hopefully the information will prove beneficial to anyone who wishes to try mirroring by any other method.

Interested to read this query.  I also want to use my phone/TV connection to use Zoom.  I can  get my phone to connect with TV via Smart View app, I seem only to be able to show photos, videos and play music via this app.  Looks like the originator of the question has had success with Zoom , could someone please suggest how I can get Zoom to work with my Samsung phone and Samsung TV please.

Hi guys. If you don't have any luck with Smart View then I have read that it might be possible to mirror Zoom via Google Chromecast. There is also a Zoom desktop app for PC/Mac, therefore you could connect to Zoom via your home computer, and connect that to your TV as a workaround.

I just done a quick test on an S10, with Smart Things go into the connected Tv Room-Click the 3 Dots and the first option is Mirror Screen (Smart View)   Everything including Zoom  was working  ok .  (everything you go into on phone  is displayed on Tv screen.  With the actual Smart view app though I could only use the phone to operate Tv and the Smart apps.
