Add video in meetings

Connect and collaborate face-to-face in an HD video and audio experience. 8x8 Meet detects the current active speaker, and displays their video in the main screen rather than in the secondary participant strip as they present or contribute in a meeting.

8x8 Meet supports 500 in-meeting participants; all participants who join via app or browser can also share their video if their connection strength permits it.

To share video in meetings:

By default, when you join a meeting with 8x8 Meet, your video is on. If your video is switched off, click or tap Start/stop camera to start sharing your video.

Note: If you start sharing video while already sharing on-screen content, your video appears as a smaller tile over the corner of your shared content.

If you're joining from a SIP device that supports viewing and sharing video, use your SIP device's usual controls to share and view video.

If you’re sharing video from a mobile device, you can also toggle between your front-facing and rear-facing device cameras:

  • On 8x8 Work for Mobile apps and 8x8 Meet mobile app for Android: open More actions > More options to open a menu, and select Toggle camera.
  • On 8x8 Meet mobile app for iOS: Tap Toggle camera in the control bar.
