USB Power on RaspBerry Pi Zero W too low

When we try to use VirtualHere service on a Raspberry Pi Zero W running plugged into a USB port for power, we can't see any devices plugged in when we connect with the VirtualHere client. When we plug an external power source plugged into the wall into the same "server" device, we see the plugged in devices on the Raspberry Hub. Shouldn't this work with USB port supplied power? Is there something we need to do? Has anyone else had this issue and solved it?

I think you need to have external power or use a better usb power source e.g 5V 3A usb port instead of e.g 5V 500ma like standard usb ports.
