Remote focus may also work as well by holding CTRL (or Command) while using the mouse wheel. https://obs.ninja/supports will show whether your browser and default camera supports focus/zoom. If you are the one publishing with an Android device, you can hold the screen down and move your finger up or down to zoom in and out.
