Moderators now have the option to ‘spotlight’ any participant (including themselves). Activating this feature will change the layout to ‘speaker view’ for all participants and moderators, with the ‘spotlighted’ participant’s video or screen-share taking over the main window. This will override active-speaker, gallery view, and any individual pin settings.

How an organizer or moderator can use Spotlight

  • Click the pin icon on your tile or the tile of a participant
  • Select 'Spotlight - pin for everyone'
  • Click the pin icon again and select to end spotlight to deactivate this feature
