How do I rearrange the camera feeds?

Because up to 50 cameras can be shared during a session, your screen may start to look busy. Change the camera filter and position to free up some screen space and help you focus or try our flexible layout feature.

Notice: This article addresses the new GoTo app experience. View How do I rearrange camera feeds and the shared screen? (Classic) or How do I manage camera feeds in the Desktop App? (Classic) for the classic experience.

Filter cameras including mine

When multiple attendees are sharing their cameras, you can choose to see only the presenter's camera, the camera of current speaker, or no camera at all. Additionally, you can choose to display your own camera or hide it.

Note: If there are more than 25 webcams being shared, we recommend switching to Active cameras or Who's talking mode.
  1. Select Change Layout Icon in the top toolbar.
  2. Select a filter:
    • Everyone — Display all attendees in the meeting (those not sharing their camera will have initials).
    • Who's talking — Display only the current speaker.
    • Active cameras — Display only those who are actively sharing a webcam.
    • Hide everyone — Display no webcam. This will help increase bandwidth if you are having internet issues.
  3. To hide your own camera (and still share with attendees), disable Show me my camera.

    Result: Doing so will remove your camera feed from your window. Your camera will continue to be shared with others.

Change camera positions

When a presenter is sharing their screen, you can rearrange the camera feed and presentation so you can focus on what's important to you.

This feature is only available when someone else is sharing their screen.
  1. Select Change Layout Icon.
  2. Determine where you want the camera feeds positioned.
  3. Use the sliding scale to enlarge or shrink the camera feeds and shared screen.

Pin someone's camera feed

You can pin a participant's camera feed to be enlarged indefinitely on your screen. You can only pin one camera at a time. This will only change your local view, it will not affect the session recording or other participant's views.

If you do not see this feature, it is because you are on the classic GoTo Meeting desktop app. To learn more about the new experience, see here.
  1. Start or join a meeting.
  2. In the desired participant's feed, select More > Pin.
    Fastpath: You can also use the drop-down options in the People pane to pin a camera.
  3. To remove the pin, select More > Unpin.
