Striking up a conversation by walking up to someone is magical! Remember when we used to do that IRL?
But sometimes you need privacy - a business meeting, a 1-on-1, or any situation where randos walking in would derail the conversation. Private meetings can give you what you need.
Note: 💡 When in a private meeting you will have a blue circle beneath your feet and others cannot walk up and immediately join. They must knock to join.
There are four different ways to start a private meeting. All are available to you and you can use any of them at any time.
#1. Click on an avatar and invite them to a private meeting
Click on an avatar to open the avatar menu.
Select 'Invite To Meeting'
#2. Convert a current video conference into a private meeting
Already in a meeting that you want to make private?
Click the Lock icon in the bottom meeting menu
Select 'Convert To a Private Meeting'
#3 Invite many people to a private meeting
Send out private meeting invites to select individuals by Creating a New Private Meeting.
Click the group meeting icon in the bottom left menu
Select 'Create a New Private Meeting'
Select all those who you'd like to join the meeting
