Turn off Center Stage on macOS with Apple Studio Display


Hi there,


I'm running Zoom 5.11.11 on macOS Monterey 12.5, and have an Apple Studio Display. I've noticed the Center Stage feature is on when I'm in Zoom meetings (the camera tracks you as you move around), however I can't find any setting to turn it off. It seems that this setting does exist on iOS/iPad OS, but not on macOS. Is there a way to turn this off on Zoom on the Mac?


Thank you!

Center Stage is an Apple feature, not something controlled by Zoom.

@amalchandaria is correct that this can be controlled directly from the Zoom app on iOS, but unfortunately that control is not yet supported directly from the macOS desktop client. For now, you will have to disable Center Stage on macOS directly, as @Ray_Harwood provided. 

And Apple support says it is a Zoom issue.    I can turn center stage on and off on every other app than Zoom.      I wrote to Zoom support and they didn't answer, yet marked my question as "solved"       Interesting customer support fail.

Very frustrating.  I have a Studio Display and the Center Stage is now flowing all over the place during meetings.  There seems to be no way to turn it off.  The link that Ray provided doesn't address it either.   I don't have this problem with any other use of Center Stage.  So I do think Zoom should get a bit more involved and provide a resolution.
