Multi-tasking mode during a Video meeting on mobile

Last updated on February 14, 2022
Multi-task mode allows you and your team to better engage in a meeting while sending a message, searching for a conversation, viewing files, and more.
With this feature, you can:
  • View the active speaker or meeting presentation while on a different screen.
  • Have access to the mute/ unmute button via the preview meeting window.
  • Minimize and maximize the preview meeting window at any time.
Note: When you use the Video mobile app for the first time, you will be asked to grant Vodafone with RingCentral permission to open a floating window while in a meeting. This allows the app to be displayed on top of other apps or windows you’re currently on.

Granting Vodafone UC permission to open floating window

  1. While in a Video meeting, tap the screen once to display in-meeting controls.
  2. Tap the left-pointing arrow at top left.
