Checking if Your Samsung TV is Compatible

Before installing Zoom, you must ensure your Samsung TV model is compatible with the Zoom app.

Most mid-range to high-end Samsung smart TVs from 2016 forward support Zoom. This includes QLED TVs, The Frame, The Serif, and Crystal UHD models.

To confirm, head to the Samsung Apps store on your TV. Search for “Zoom” – if the Zoom Cloud Meetings app appears in search, your TV is compatible.

If not, your model likely doesn’t meet the requirements to install Zoom. These include:

– Tizen OS version 3.0 or higher
– 1.4 GHz CPU
– 1.5 GB RAM minimum
– Resolution of 720p or higher

So first, check that your TV meets these specs. Next, let’s download the app.

Installing Zoom App on Samsung TV

If your model is supported, installing Zoom from your Samsung TV is quick and painless:

1. From your Samsung smart hub homepage, select the “Apps” icon, then choose “App Store.”

2. In the search bar, type “Zoom” and select enter.

3. The Zoom Cloud Meetings app should appear. Select to open it.

4. Choose “Install” to download Zoom to your TV.

5. A popup will ask you to accept the app permissions – go ahead and agree to this.

6. The app will now download and install automatically. Once finished, select “Open” to launch Zoom.

And that’s it! The Zoom app is now downloaded and ready for your Samsung TV.

Joining Zoom Meetings & Calls

Joining meetings and calls with Zoom on your Samsung TV works similarly to other devices after you install the app and sign up.

There are two ways to join meetings:

1. Input the meeting ID, password, and your display name to join a meeting directly. It would be great if someone provided you with these details so you can join.

2. Join using a join link, which instantly loads the meeting when clicked. Zoom meeting invites usually include the join link.

Either way works fine! The app also saves your meeting history and contacts, making joining recurring meetings quick and easy.

When in a meeting, you can see other participants’ video feeds, chat, mute/unmute, and turn your camera on or off. Controls are accessible using your Samsung remote.
