At the time we told you about the new features that came with tvOS 17, the latest version of the Apple TV operating system. And among the main new features, they activated a function that allows you to use an iPhone or iPad as a webcam to make video calls via FaceTime.

Zoom for Apple TV 4K is now more complete than ever before #
Zoom has released a silent update to add this feature that is already available through FaceTime. However, it should be noted that, at least for now, this feature is only available in the United States, although it will not take long to expand to other markets.
Anyway, if you use Zoom on a regular basis we invite you to check if there is an update available with which you can enjoy this new feature. The only requirement is that both the iPhone or iPad is connected to the same WiFi network to be able to apply this feature.

As you can imagine, we do not have specific dates for this update, so we will have to be attentive to Apple’s and Zoom’s next moves for the video calling platform to launch this corresponding update to improve usability.
Undoubtedly, good news for users of this platform to make video calls and who use an Apple TV 4K on a regular basis, as they will be able to enjoy the potential offered by the camera of the iPhone or iPad to make calls from the comfort of your TV and in the simplest way.
