Video pinning or spotlight in Zoom App

You can pin (pin) and spotlight the video during the meeting.

You can use the pin screen to disable the display of active speakers and show only specific speakers. This pinned setting only affects the local view in the Zoom room, not the views of other participants. It does not affect cloud recordings.

In Spotlight videos, users are the primary speakers for all participants in meetings and cloud recordings. To spotlight, a video-on meeting requires at least 3 participants, and only the organizer can participate.
