Turning on cameras for Attendees in a Zoom Webinar


We are hosting a webinar for 400 employees where at the end we would like to toast and see everyone's face. How can I allow attendees to turn on their cameras?

Hi @Robinbetters ! Apologies for the late reply, and thank you for your contribution! As of now, only hosts and panelists can share their video in a webinar. You can, however, host a meeting that would allow for all participants to be seen.

Have you heard of Zoom AI Companion?

Hey @CarlaA I am curious to know if Zoom webinar enables you as the host to allow attendees to switch their own cameras on? 


I am trying to decide to upgrade to Zoom webinar or large meeting.   I want panelists and I want everyone to see each other. I want to mute atteendees though. which one is better?  

If you want everyone to see each other, you need to use Meetings. You can easily mute attendees so that they cannot unmute themselves.
