Mouse Pointers

Mouse pointers indicate a user's presence in a room by showing where they are looking, hovering, or clicking.

To turn on mouse pointers, check the box next to Show Mouse Pointers in your Room Settings.


A user's name will appear next to their mouse pointer while it is moving.


A few use cases for mouse pointers:

  • Pointing to specific elements during a presentation
  • Allow users to point at a screen share or map
  • See who is moving an element (e.g. a talking piece)
  • Indicate presence during a game or interactive activity


Pointer Fade Out

After a few seconds of inactivity, a user's mouse pointer will fade and their name will disappear. If using mouse pointer's for an activity, remind users to keep their mice moving!
