Zoom works well on Apple TV, using iPhone/iPad as continuity calendar

Hey, there’s a new zoom app for the appleTV and it works surprisingly well.

I’m using it now to watch a live zoom call (a lecture where I’m watching, not participating), with me sitting on my couch and my iPhone sitting next to the apple TV.

The only tricky thing I’ve found, so far, is that it didn’t list all of my meetings (because they’re on different email calendars), so I had to dictate the meeting id into zoom in order to join. The meeting id is in the zoom link URL and it wasn’t hard.

One extra nice feature is that you can seamlessly swap back and forth, during the same zoom call, from the apple tv and the mac and back again. That might also work with iPad and iPhone … haven’t tested it.
