- write messages in chat, use smileys;
- vote/take part in polls;
- write in shared notes and download them to your device;
- accept invitations to meeting rooms.
- download and manage slides;
- make notes;
- show videos;
- organise surveys and publish results.
- control listeners’ microphones (mute/unmute);
- block listeners’ actions (for example, ban them from creating private chats);
- give anyone (including themselves) the role of a speaker;
- create meeting rooms;
- write subtitles;
- start/stop recording;
- end the conference.
