When you are in a Zoom meeting, it makes sense that you want to see everyone participating in the meeting.
Zoom is a videoconferencing platform, and when you join a meeting, you can see the video feed of other attendees.
Moreover, it’s possible to see everyone on Zoom, but that depends on the total number of people you have in your meeting.
Zoom has different display modes. By default, the speaker takes a large view of the screen. However, you can switch to the gallery view to view more participants. Zoom lets you choose between 25 or 49 participants on the gallery view.
Open your Zoom desktop and log in. Once you join the meeting, tap on the “View” option at the top and select the “Gallery view”. You can then see more participants on your Zoom desktop or mobile application.
We will start by discussing how to adjust the number of participants for your Zoom view. Next, we will cover the steps to activate the gallery view to allow viewing more participants on your Zoom. Lastly, we will discuss the different Zoom view modes.
How To Adjust the Gallery View
When using Zoom, you can view a maximum of 25 participants by default on the gallery view option. However, it’s possible to adjust the number as Zoom lets you choose between 25 or 49 participants.
You can adjust the number as follows.
- Open your Zoom account and sign in.
- Tap on the settings icon at the top.
- On the “Settings” page, click the option for “Video”.
- Scroll down and select 49 participants as your maximum number of participants when in the “Gallery View”.
How To See Everyone on Zoom
Now that you’ve adjusted the gallery view settings to accommodate everyone.
We can proceed to cover the steps to activate the “Gallery view” on Zoom desktop and mobile.
The adjustments you make on your Zoom window won’t affect the other attendees, as no one will notice the view or the arrangement you set up for your Zoom window.
On Zoom Desktop
- Open your Zoom application and sign in.
- Join a Zoom meeting.
- Once in the meeting, click the “View” button at the top right corner.
- On the options that will appear, click on the one for “Gallery View”.
With that, Zoom will display 49 participants if you adjust the settings.
Zoom will automatically adjust and arrange the vie for the first page. If you have more participants, they will appear on the second page of the Zoom window.
Besides, you can arrange the participants by clicking on their video to organize who fits in on the view and at what position.
On Zoom Mobile
It is also possible to enable the “Gallery view” for those using Zoom on mobile phones. However, the number of participants won’t be as many as when using the desktop application. Again, the participants will depend on the screen size of their mobile phones.
- Open the Zoom application on your iPhone or Android.
- Login to your account and join a Zoom meeting.
- Tap on the “View” option at the top of the window.
- Select the option for “Gallery view” to switch the display.
Note how Zoom will arrange the participants on your screen, depending on its size. In most cases, you will have four participants per screen, but you can swipe left or right to view more participants.
Zoom View Modes
Zoom lets you visualize a revived videoconferencing experience. Besides, it offers three view modes you can select when you want to switch between them.
When you double-click the Zoom window, it will open a full-screen mode of the speaker.
To exit this mode, double-click on the Zoom window.
With this mode, you let the speaker take the largest section of the video display.
Still, you will view your video and a few participants at the top, while others will remain hidden.
The gallery view lets you see many participants arranged in a grid layout.
When you want to see everyone on Zoom, enable the gallery view, and you will see many participants to a maximum of 49 when using the Zoom desktop.
We’ve seen how to enable the gallery view and Zoom’s different view modes.
