During an ongoing RingCentral Video meeting, participants may check who else is in the meeting. The main screen in RingCentral Video displays up to 16 or 25 participants at a time.
There are several ways to view participants in a meeting: the gallery or film strip view. If there are more than 16 participants in your meeting, you can flip to other pages with the overflow participants that didn’t fit on the first page.
