Zoom is a video conferencing app that allows users to share their screen with other participants. However, sometimes users may experience an error code when trying to share their screen. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including if the user's internet connection is not strong enough or if there is a problem with the Zoom app itself. If you are experiencing this error, we recommend checking your internet connection and restarting the Zoom app.
