Presenters, Hosts, and Attendees

In meetings, attendees and hosts can access settings with the More menu that is displayed when you click the More button on the right of the Meetings toolbar.

Depending on whether you are an attendee or host, the following settings are available in an open meeting. Available settings may differ for attendees of large meetings or webinars.

The primary difference between a host and an attendee is that hosts can control meeting recordings, and can mute all attendees. Hosts can also promote attendees to provide them with access to these recordings and mute features.

Once an attendee has been promoted to be a speaker, they will be able to perform most actions available to a host, such as record the meeting, share their screen, and mute all other attendees.
