What are Zoom’s speaker view and gallery view?

Zoom speaker view and gallery view written in the title.

Do you know what this is?

It may be a feature that even those who use Zoom on a regular basis haven’t used much.

This is because the teacher-student pattern is rarely used.

Also, please note that if you share the screen, the layout will be forcibly changed regardless of which setting you set.

What is Zoom speaker view?

It may not be necessary to explain the speaker view again.

Because this is a normal Zoom screen.

The feature is that the video of the person who is speaking is projected large.
* However, if there are 3 or more participants, and if there are 2 participants, the other party will appear larger.

This is the case of two people.


And here is the case of three people.


What is Zoom’s gallery view?

Next is the gallery view.

Move the cursor to the upper right of the Zoom screen and click the displayed gallery view button to switch.

This is the button.


This is the case of two people.


And here is the case of three people.


What do you think?

Everyone’s video screens are now the same size as when sharing the screen.

This is the gallery view.

This is the frame size for 2 or 3 people, but as the number of participants increases, the frame per person will become smaller and will line up in the same way.

In addition, in the state of gallery view, the previous button has changed as follows.

Proper use of speaker view and gallery view

There is no better choice between speaker view and gallery view.

It is important to use each one properly according to the scene.

For example, in the case of a teacher and a student, the speaker view.

In the case of a roundtable discussion, it’s like a gallery view.

Ordinary lectures are given in speaker view, and if you want to leave something like a group photo at the end, you can use gallery view only at the end.

In addition, when recording, it will be recorded as it is in the state of being reflected, so when using it on a recording basis, it is better to decide and set either one at an early stage so that it will not be over or over in the middle. Sounds good.


How was that?

I’m sure there are some people who haven’t tried it before, even though it appears on the Zoom screen.

As I wrote earlier, the range of visibility can be expanded by using it properly according to the scene.

The operation is easy and you can switch with one click, so feel free to use it.
