Using a tablet for Zoom meeting

Hi everyone,

I'm using a tablet (Amazon Fire) to run a meeting and need to know what functions are and aren't available in comparison to using a laptop. Can anyone please tell me?
Thanks in advance

Thomas

@Thomas_Cloherty , the main differences between tablet and laptop for meetings is that on tablets, you cannot Screen Share and see video at the same time.

Power point with embedded video will still be shown to the participant. However, when you screen share, you will not be able to see the participants at the same time.

Yes participants should be able to see you and use chats and Q&A and yes as well for doing usual functions after stopping screen sharing.

Cheers!

Thanks very much for your reply and expertise, IP Man! Does that mean if I screen share a PowerPoint presentation with a video embedded, it won't show? Will I still be able to see other attendees if I share my screen? (I have a paid Zoom subscription, in case that makes any difference)

I really appreciate your help! One last question (I think!) Will attendees still be able to see me (thumbnail) and will we still be able to use chat and Q&A while screen sharing? And I assume when I stop the screen share, we'll be able to do ahead usual functions 🤨
