Active Speaker view

As a picture-within-a-picture, the Active Speaker View shows a large view of the person speaking as well as a smaller thumbnail of the previous speaker. When screen sharing is active, the shared screen appears in the large display and the thumbnail shows the sharing user. The Advanced view includes options for setting the size and location of the thumbnail, or displaying the active speaker or shared screen without a thumbnail.

Thumbnail view

A thumbnail combines a view of the Speakers with a view of the Gallery, scaled down. Under a relatively larger view of the active speaker, a small strip of thumbnails displays up to eight participants. Each thumbnail represents the most recent active participant. In Zoom Rooms with a single screen, this view is available only.

Gallery View

Gallery View, by default, displays up to 25 participants per screen. If you enable it in the settings, you can display up to 49 participants per screen. An active speaker will appear in Gallery View. A small arrow appears next to the icon if there is more than the maximum number of participants per screen. To display the next group of participants, tap the right arrow, and to display the previous group, tap the left arrow. Zoom Rooms with one screen do not have this view when screen sharing is active.
