Zoom’s share screen feature offers an easier way for you to share content or your entire screen including any app on your phone directly to the other person in the conference. The only downside (so far) is that the device audio like when playing a video on your phone while on Zoom won’t be shared. That said, only the video is shared.

Can’t Share Screen in Zoom?

If you encounter some error when using Zoom screen sharing, like the Zoom screen sharing is not working as intended, check your internet connection. Online conferencing apps like Zoom do require fast and stable internet connection in order to work properly.

If you’re already on a conference call and couldn’t share a screen in Zoom, turning the video off might help. To do this, just tap the Stop Video button and then select the option to Share screen.

Also ensure that you are using the latest version of the Zoom app. Otherwise, you may have to consider updating the app first. The latest version of the app is Zoom 5.0. If you haven’t already, download and install the latest update for your Zoom app for Android. Typically, you will see an update notification the moment you open the app. Just follow the onscreen prompts to get the update.

Finally, uninstalling and reinstalling the application can be considered among the last options, if none of the initial workarounds is able to fix the problem.

And that covers everything in this tutorial. Please keep posted for more comprehensive tutorials, tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your new Samsung galaxy s20 smartphone.
