About your meeting room

When you are hosting a meeting, you have full control of guests and meeting functions.

At first, the top of the meeting stage shows Audio & Webcams. Anyone can stream webcam video in the room or share content in the room. Up to six webcams can be shown on the meeting stage at one time. When you click the share content button, the meeting type switches to Screen Share or File Presentation based on your choice.

Switch Meeting Type    

Meeting controls

Use the meeting controls at the bottom of the stage to mute your mic and to share your webcam, to access the screen share, file share, and recording features, and to change your current settings. You can change your audio connection and webcam and turn open sharing on or off from your settings.

Guest webcams remain active when you start screen sharing. (You can't share your screen and stream video at the same time. If your webcam is on and you start screen share, your webcam is turned off.) All webcams remain on if anyone shares a file.

Meeting Toolbar

Meeting sidebar

Use the meeting sidebar to the left of the stage to manage and chat with your guests. At the top, the Meeting panel lists all participants in the meeting. As the host, you can dial out to a prospective guest to invite them into the meeting and use the additional participant controls for current guests.

Click a name to mute the guest, promote the guest to presenter, and dismiss the guest from the room. Presenters are able to manage other guests and can screen share or share a file if you have restricted content sharing.

If you have GlobalMeet VRC, people can also join your meeting from their video room systems. VRC guests immediately share their video streams in the room and have their own row in the Guests list. You can mute or dismiss a VRC guest. Learn more about GlobalMeet VRC »

Tip: If there are a large number of guests in the meeting, click the search button to find a guest in the list.
