Amazon has added the Zoom video calling app to its new line of Fire TV Omni Series smart TVs. 

Omni Series TV users of any size configuration can mount a compatible 720p-1080p USB-connected webcam to the top of their set and simply say, "Alexa, find Zoom" to initiate the app through the TVs built-in Alexa voice support. 

Privacy-leery users must remember to turn the TV microphone on. And the app will only use the Omni's built-in speakers -- smart speakers won't work with the app. 

Amazon already announced Zoom support for its Fire TV Cube device over the summer.
