Disable temporary spotlight (active speaker) when muting

When muting someone who isn’t the active speaker, the muted person appears as the active speaker for a second or so.

This is really unnecessary, and frankly unwanted. The person gets muted for a reason; they don’t get muted to appear up front.

This is a Zoom developer-specific feature request, so not really related to any SDK.

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

It’s a distraction, the way things are now. More signal, less noise please.

Describe the solution you’d like

Do not put participants as the active speaker when they mute themselves/get muted.
