How To Pin Screen or Screens? Follow


Pin screen allows you to disable active speaker view and only view a specific speaker.  It will also only record the pinned screen/speaker if you are recording locally (to your computer). Pinning another user's video will only affect your local view, not the view of other participants and will not affect cloud recordings.
