Zoom is a great video conferencing tool that integrates the power of the internet with the convenience of video chat. With Zoom, you can easily stay in contact with your family and friends, conduct remote business and hold online events – all from your computer or mobile device.
In this article, we will cover the steps you need to take in order to connect a Bluetooth speaker to your zoom meeting using a laptop or smartphone.
Does Zoom Work with Bluetooth speakers?
Yes. You can connect a Bluetooth speaker to your Zoom account and have the audio from your meeting streamed directly to the speaker.
To do this, you must connect the speaker to your computer or mobile device prior to starting the Zoom meeting, and then use the same device for both the video and audio portions of the call.
In order to use a Bluetooth speaker with Zoom, you’ll need a few things:
- Bluetooth speaker that supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile).
- A device that supports Bluetooth (computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone).
- The latest version of Zoom is installed on your device.
How to Connect Bluetooth Speaker to Zoom Meetings? Step by Step
Step 1: Turn the Bluetooth speaker on
Put the Bluetooth speaker in discovery mode. This is usually done by holding down a button on the speaker for a few seconds.
Step 2: Plug the speaker’s power cord into a power outlet
If your Bluetooth speaker has a power cord, plug it into a power outlet before you begin. This will ensure that the speaker has enough power to connect to Zoom.
Next, open the Zoom app on your device and sign in. Then, tap the “New Meeting” button to start a new meeting.
When the meeting starts, tap the “More” button in the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will open a menu of options.
Tap the “Audio” option in this menu. This will open a new window with audio options.

Step 2: Select the “Settings” option.

Step 4: Make sure that your computer’s Bluetooth is turned on and that it is set to discoverable.
If you want to use a Bluetooth speaker with your Zoom meeting, you’ll need to make sure that your computer’s Bluetooth is turned on and that it is set to discoverable. Once you’ve done that, you should be able to connect your speaker to your computer and use it with Zoom.
