What to consider when using Presenter Overlay mode

Consider these best practices when using Presenter overlay mode.
  • Practice the position of your video before your presentation and as you transition slides. You can always change the position of your video in your video settings during the meeting.
  • Be mindful of your hands — when using your hands to explain something, make sure to keep your hands inside the video camera frame.
