Sony has announced that its BRAVIA line of big screens will be the first of their category to support Zoom. Accordingly, the TVs' users will be able to make video calls and hold conferences just as they might on their smartphones or laptops - so long as they have the series' matching webcam, that is. Zoom for TV is rated for tools such as screen-sharing, and also to be compatible with BRAVIA Cam features such as Ambient Optimization Pro.

Anyone who has looked at their new and potentially OLED 4K TV from Sony and wished that they could somehow make calls through their usual video app on its up to 98-inch display are now in luck. The OEM has announced that remote face-to-face contact for work or to friends and family are indeed about to scale up to that size thanks to a new partnership with Zoom.

The agreement will see BRAVIA-series devices become the first big screens to be capable of using Zoom for TV. This new version of the app is available from the Google Play Store, and also requires a connected BRAVIA Cam to work at the time of writing.

Sony executive Shusuke Tomonaga notes that the OEM is "excited" to deliver "more realistic video communication" via Zoom support, as it will enable its consumers "to be more connected with the people they care about, whether they are working from home, learning remotely, or just catching up with friends and family." The new app should be available to "select" BRAVIA variants by the "early summer" of 2023.
