Focus, Gaming Mode in Zoom Meet
Zoom has announced the introduction of Focus Mode in Zoom meeting which was designed with educators in mind. Focus Mode places meeting participants in a view where they are only able to see themselves, the host/co-hosts and the content they are sharing. In this view, hosts and co-hosts can also choose to view participants in gallery view, enabling them to see all participants simultaneously. Zoom has also announced the launch of social multiplayer games to enable users to play while they chat. The first games include a poker game, a new riff on the popular social mystery game Werewolf, and a pair of releases from Playco, a company that specialises in so-called 'instant gaming' that allows users to play without the need for extra downloads.
