    I need to turn on my phone's mic and camera for appointment with doctor. Last time I was able to see and hear her on Zoom but she could neither see nor hear me. How do I enable my phone's camera and mic for Zoom?

    Make sure you gave Zoom permission to access camera and mic is my first thought.

    Thank you ocnbrze and hadron. I was following remote directions/instructions on installing zoom so I didn't see all of its settings. I'll fix those settings for my next zoom appointment and see if that solves the issue.

    I expect for security purposes I can remove the camera/audio permission between uses of zoom and them put them back on when needed.

    In the Zoom chat in the top right side it should show your name and a camera and microphone icon. You can toggle both.

    I had to use Zoom for college.
