Pro-tip for folks who are using a computer – there are two ways to minimize the size of the timer so you can see more of the other participants:
1. Up near the top of the screen there’s a “View Options” button. On that menu, click “Side-by-side Mode”. Then grab the divider bar and drag it towards the timer to make it smaller. (Optionally, switch to “Gallery View” or “Speaker View” as desired.)
2. When not in “Side-by-side Mode”, there’s a column of videos of the other participants off to the side. On the top right of that column, click “swap shared screen with video” to make the timer small and off in the corner, and make the spotlighted person big and in the center.
