Using Picture-in-Picture (PIP)

  • Updated

Have you ever been screen sharing during a meeting, but had no idea what the audience's tone was, or if they were even engaged in your presentation because you couldn't see them?

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) allows you to see the audience’s reaction and interact with meeting participants without switching the tabs or disrupting your presentation. You can keep your eyes on the viewers and the page you’re presenting at the same time, or pull up research and other documents while still seeing what’s happening in the meeting.

Let's dive into the details.

Using PIP

To start Picture-in-Picture sharing, select More from your Dialpad Meetings bottom bar, then select Start Picture-in-Picture


You can also launch PIP with the “Shift+P” keyboard shortcut.

While the PIP window is open, you can switch between tabs while still seeing what is happening in the meeting.


Why can't I see the names of the participants when I'm using Picture-In-Picture?  

PIP directly streams videos as it is. It won’t show the name of the participants or indicate who the presenter is.


Why can't I see the option for PIP?

PIP is not yet supported in Firefox, Safari, and tablet browsers. PIP currently works best on Chrome and Edge browsers.


Should I share my full screen or just part of it?

We recommend not sharing your entire screen when using screen sharing and PIP. That will make the Picture-in-Picture screen visible during the recording, which may not be the best experience for the viewers.
