Would someone please explain the Speaker View to me? At my first meeting, I could see the small pictures of each person at the top (Gallery View) and when someone spoke, I saw their face in the larger view below. When I spoke, however, I continued to see the small picture of me in the Gallery above but did not see my face in the larger view below. Perhaps this is the way it's supposed to work, but the leader of my first meeting didn't know if my face should appear below (on my monitor) when I said something. Thanks for your help.
My name is Brandon. Thanks for joining the Zoom Community! Speaker view should be that whomever is speaking should be in the larger viewpoint. What could have happened in your meeting is that someone may have pinned their video panel. When a video panel is pinned in a speaker view then that persons video is focused as the main speaker view. It is built that way for meetings when you have a special speaker that you want the entire meeting to remain focused on.
Here is a quick reference that you can use to learn more about pinning and spotlighting.
I hope that this helps.
Would someone please answer my question? I'm trying to find out if my face should appear on my monitor when I speak at a ZOOM meeting. I've only attended one meeting and the leader was not "pinning" anyone. Everyone's face appeared in the larger view when they spoke except mine.
Yes, your video thumbnail should show up unless you have your video disabled. If your video was disabled at the time of the meeting then it will not show up in the gallery view or speaker view.
Hello @Qwertyportne ,
Thanks for your question! The other attendees are seeing you as active speaker in the meetings if your camera is on. You likely are not seeing yourself as active speaker due a personal Zoom account setting. If you DO want to see yourself in future meetings, check off the box in your Video settings that says "See myself as the active speaker while speaking". Please see the screenshot attached. This will only affect your personal experience going forward.
