Quick tips

Mute & Unmute

You can press and hold the spacebar to quickly mute and unmute your mic, right from your keyboard. 

Turn on gallery view

See everyone in the meeting at once, instead of just the person speaking. To turn that on, click the tab that says “Gallery view” in the top right corner.

Change it back by clicking “Speaker view” in that same top right corner. 

React with an emoji

Send an emoji to communicate without interrupting the meeting. Click the Reactions tab at the bottom of the meeting screen (it’s in the same panel as mute audio and video, to the right) and choose the one you want. Emoji will disappear after 5 seconds.
