Zoom Multi-pin

Zoom has launched new features that include Multi-Pin, Spotlight, and Custom Gallery view. Users can now pin multiple videos to keep the most important content in place. Only the user pinning videos will be able to see multiple videos on screen and can adjust the placement of videos as he or she desires. Users can drag and drop the videos into any order in a custom, personal view. By Default, only the host or co-host can utilize the multi-pin feature, but either can allow individual participants to multi-pin on their video layout.

Zoom Multi-Spotlight

Zoom has also introduced multi-spotlight, similar to multi-pin, allowing a Host or Co-Host to pin up to nine videos that will be visible at the same time for everyone in the meeting. This is a Host and Co-Host controlled feature in which a custom, focused group view is visible to all meeting participants for the duration of the meeting. As the Host or Co-Host, once you have selected which videos will be pinned, you can then push this view to the attendees.
