Zoom one of the most popular video calling app for business owners and people alike, over the last few months due to the Covid-19 pandemic, just begun rolling out its latest version on Android, and it has now enabled users to live-stream directly to YouTube.
The Latest version 220.127.116.114 now rolling out via the Google Play Store comes with little tweaked features. The flashlight currently works when using the app. It supports End-to-end encryption and adjusts rolling out to Zoom on all platforms.
Apart from encryption, another major fresh feature in this update is YouTube support for YouTube live streaming on Android devices. Livestreaming from YouTube has been supported on Zoom for pretty a while now, but not on Android, this feature is now offered in the meeting under the overflow menu. Just a tap will initiate a web portal that will redirect users to begin a YouTube live stream on their account. It is actually fast and easy to use.

To be able to live-stream from your Zoom app on Android to YouTube, your YouTube account or your brand channel needs to be qualified and join up in live streaming for YouTube.
Other than this, you are required to allow YouTube live streaming on your Zoom account for it to start working on the Android app. Before that, the option basically won’t appear.
- From the Zoom website, you’ll need to go to your account settings,
- then go to “In-Meeting (Advanced),”
- and toggle on “Allow live streaming meetings.”
- After this, the option will show on the Android app.
