Zoom is a telecommunication software commonly used to organize group meetings and conferences. You can also use the software for video calls, messaging, voice calls, virtual events, and more. Zoom provides access to developers worldwide to build customized applications under its developer platform, also known as the unified communication platform. The application works great on your laptop, Mac, Smartphone, etc. But viewing a public event or online scheduled classes on a big screen would be preferable. To do this, you can AirPlay your screen from Zoom to any device enabled with the AirPlay feature.

The usage of the Zoom applications peaked during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The free version of the application supports 100 participants at a time and allows you to organize meetings for up to 40 minutes. Zoom provides multiple paid plans for personal and business use. The most premium plan allows 1000 participants at a time and provides access to organize meetings for 30 hours. In addition, you can check out Zoom’s official website.
If your Mac is updated to macOS 10.14 (i.e.) Mojave or above, you will have to grant permission to the Zoom application to use the system’s camera and microphone and to share the screen. It might be the thing that restricts your Mac from sharing the screen.
Yes, you can. Before doing that, ensure your speaker and the Apple device are connected under the same WiFi network. Now open Zoom Meeting > Microphone Symbol > Select a Speaker and choose your speaker from the list.
