How do I use Zoom on Android?

Firstly you’ll need to install Zoom Cloud Meetings.

You can get it from here.

You will be able to see your scheduled live lessons on Show My Homework.

Ten minutes before the start time, you will need to go to the Google Classroom for that subject (How do I do that?) and click the join link which will be near the top. This should launch the Zoom app.

The first time you run Zoom, it will ask you for your name – please put your full name in here.

You can then tap OK at which point you will join the Waiting Room.

At the start time, the teacher will invite you in to the main room one at a time, but only if they recognise your name – this is why it is important to enter your name properly when you first start.

If the teacher invites you in on the condition that you change your name to your proper name, this is how to do it:

  • Tap Participants on the bottom menu.
