Disabling videos

If you are:

  • A presenter or attendee invited to speak during a session
  • An attendee joining group rooms

In case you have a poor internet connection on your smartphone, you can disable all presenters' videos (including yours) to make the call lighter.

Attendees and presenters will still be able to see you. You are only disabling videos for yourself.

To disable videos on the app, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the square icon in the top left corner.
  2. Disable show videos by pressing the toggle button.
  3. Click on Close

Now, your video and other presenters' videos will be off. This will make the call less heavy.

Disabling videos
You can also disable videos when joining group rooms. Learn more about group rooms on the mobile app here.

Networking

Here you will see other participants connected to the Virtual Lobby (as long as their profiles are visible) and join and create group rooms. To learn more about networking on the app, click here.
