Remove Chat from Certain Participants


We would like to host a meeting with two levels of participants. One group of participants (approx. 80 people) should be able to Chat and Raise Hand. The other group of participants (approx. 10 people) should not be able to do either and will be more "viewers" of the meeting. Is there a way to set this up? I saw that "groups" was now a feature.


We are also planning to require Zoom registration for this meeting, for all participants.


Thank you,

Hi @TYOU thank you for your post here on the Zoom Community! I believe what you are asking to do is possible by "stitching" if you will two meetings together. One meeting would have different permissions than the other so you could sort of partition off participants. It is not possible to do this natively within the Zoom platform today so the stitching would require some external equipment and capabilities. 

A couple ideas

- we love feature requests and if you were able to take a few minutes to provide the feature request and reasoning that this feature would help you, that would be great! Currently, our product team reviews all feature requests submitted via our feedback form

- we also have an Events Services team that have the know-how and cabilities to help with situations like this. Some information about them here


Our Events Services team have been great, they are even putting on a public webinar soon that will show people a technical behind the scenes look at how they leverage production skills to pull off Zoom Events:
