Sony Bravia TVs will be the first hardware to support the upcoming Zoom for TV app on Google Play. While remote work has declined as companies urge their employees back to the office, those who continue to work from home or have hybrid arrangements will soon be able to attend virtual meetings from the comfort of their living room sofas. This comes after Apple’s announcement at WWDC 2023 that FaceTime will be available on Apple TV through mounted iPhones later this year.
Although Bravia TVs do not have built-in webcams, you can purchase a Bravia Cam to set it up. This $200 accessory not only allows for Zoom calls, but also adjusts sound and picture settings based on your location and distance from the television. It even enables hand gesture control so you don’t have to pick up the remote, features a proximity alert to warn when children are sitting too close, and includes a power-saving mode that dims the screen when nobody is watching.
Sony has announced that the Zoom for TV app will be available on Bravia TVs “by early summer.” Shusuke Tomonaga, the head of Bravia product design, said, “This partnership will allow our customers to have more immersive video communication on a large TV screen in their living rooms, enabling them to stay connected with their loved ones, whether they are working from home, attending online classes, or simply catching up with friends and family.”
