When you join a Zoom meeting hosted by another user, you are considered an attendee.
The attendee controls appear at the bottom of your screen if you're not currently screen sharing.
Attendees have access to these features:
Join Audio or Unmute/ Mute: Mute and unmute your microphone.
Audio Controls (click the ^ arrow next to Mute / Unmute): This allows you to change the microphone and speaker that Zoom is currently using on your computer, leave computer audio, and access the full audio settings.
- Windows: Alt + A
- Mac: Shift + Command + A
Start Video / Stop Video : Turns your camera on or off.
Video Controls (click the ^ arrow next to Start Video / Stop Video): Change cameras if you have multiple cameras, select a virtual background (if enabled), or access your full video settings.
Participants : See who's currently in the meeting and invite others. You can also access these options:
- Rename: Hover over your name, click More, and choose Rename to change your screen name displayed to other participants.
Chat : Access the chat window to chat with other participants.
Share Screen : Start a screen share (if the host allows). You will be able to select the desktop or application you want to share.
Record : Start or stop a local recording. Attendees do not have access to start a cloud recording.
Reactions : Meeting reactions, nonverbal feedback, and Raise Hand allow you to communicate issues or feedback to the host or presenter without disrupting the meeting. These reactions are shown on your video panel and next to your name on the participants panel.
Leave: Leave the meeting while it continues for the other participants. Only the host can end the meeting.
