Zoom’s test meeting on a desktop provides a genuine conference-like atmosphere in which you may test your camera, microphone, and other choices. On your smartphone, however, you simply have a testing tool that informs you whether your microphone and camera are operational.

Zoom Problems and Solutions
The most prevalent problem with Zoom meetings is that you are unable to view your camera stream. If this occurs in your web browser, verify sure the Zoom site has permission to access your webcam. When your meeting begins, you should be prompted to give this permission.
If this happens on the Zoom desktop app, make sure the right webcam is chosen in the Zoom settings menu.
If your microphone isn’t functioning, it’s most likely because you didn’t choose the right mic or input source. On the meeting screen, click the “Mute” button and then pick the proper microphone device.
