"Connecting" overlay blocks entire screen

After upgrading to SDK v5.0.24433.0616, I’m noticing a new blue “Connecting” overlay appearing right after you get admitted from the waiting room. This is happening when requesting a custom UI and blocks the entire screen. If you press the home button, you still see the screen overlay until the meeting connects.


Either be running the SDK on a lollipop device or if using a later version of Android, grant special “Display over other apps” permission to app.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Join a meeting that has waiting room enabled, meeting status will go to MEETING_STATUS_IN_WAITING_ROOM.
  2. Host should get notification that someone is waiting.
  3. Host clicks Admit.
  4. Meeting status will go to MEETING_STATUS_RECONNECTING and blue overlay appears.

The problem we have with this is that we already handle the CONNECTING/RECONNECTING status and display our own themed connecting screen as part of our custom UI. The overlay appears on top of our UI.
