Customizing your screen

Below is an example of what your visit window will look like on a computer or laptop with some callouts of what the most important buttons do. Things you can do to customize your experience include:

  • Change View: You can see the Gallery View (below) or the Speaker View, which is a dynamic view that puts the speaker into a bigger window with the non-speakers in smaller windows.
  • Start/Stop the Video: If you need some privacy, you can click Stop Video towards the bottom left of your screen. This stops sharing your video until you allow your video to be seen again.
