Amazon Two-Way Video Calling on Fire TV Cube Now Includes Zoom

In December, Amazon introduced two way video calling for the Fire TV Cube to any other Alexa-enabled device with a screen. Now, the company has updated the feature and will now allow users to video call with the Zoom app.

To access two-way video calling using Zoom, you will need to connect a webcam that supports USB Video Class (UVC) with at least 720p resolution and 30fps to your Fire TV Cube using a Micro USB to USB adapter. For a better experience, we recommend webcams with 1080p resolution and a 60–90 degree field of view from 6–10 feet away from the TV. Amazon does not recommend 4K webcams for this feature.

Once you’ve connected your webcam to Fire TV Cube, download and install Zoom from the Fire TV Appstore. Sign in as a guest or with your Zoom account. You can join a meeting just by saying “Alexa, join my Zoom meeting” and entering your meeting ID and password on the screen.
