Incoming Calls during a Meeting

Incoming calls won't ring while you are attending a meeting. However, on your mobile phone, you might receive a native call during a meeting. To answer a native call, you must first leave the meeting and then re-join after the call ends.


  • View. Desktop participants can change layout of video feed. Participants can change the layout between Gallery and Speaker. Gallery shows tiles of equal size. Speaker displays an active speaker in the center. This layout applies only to the user, not to other participants.

    • To change layout for yourself, select View in the top right corner, and select the style. On the mobile app, the video feed is always displayed in Grid.

  • Pin for Me. Choose one participant to always show in your video feed. This does not affect what other participants see.

    • To pin someone, locate the person in your video feed, then select More > Pin for Me.

    • To unpin, repeat the same and select Unpin.

  • Hide Self View. Use this if you don't want to look at yourself during a meeting.

    • On the desktop app, select View in the top right corner, and select Hide Self View.

    • On the mobile app, select More > Hide Self View in the meeting toolbar.

  • Turn Off Incoming Video. Stop receiving video of other participants when you have a limited cellular data plan or when you are on an unstable network connection. Turning off incoming video conserves battery life and data consumption. In the meeting toolbar, select More then enable Turn Off Incoming Video.


You can send messages to all the participants. All chat messages will be visible to participants even when they join late. However, the chat messages will not be available after the meeting ends. No export of chat history supported; participants can copy each message during a meeting.


Engage in a meeting using emoji reactions such as thumbs up and heart. Other participants see the icon in your video tile for a few seconds.

On the desktop app, click Reactions in the meeting toolbar. On the mobile app, tap More > Reactions.

Meeting reactions appear in both the Gallery and Speaker layouts; however they are not included in recordings.
