Reclaim Host Button is not working

After making the other user a host, the original host cannot reclaim back the host role unless that user leaves and rejoin the meeting. The “reclaim host” button is just not working.

No error

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Browser A: Join meeting as host
  2. Browser B: Join the same meeting as guest
  3. Browser A: Host clicks on “Participants” button
  4. Browser A: Host click on the “More” button of the other user (guest) then select “Make host” > “Yes”
  5. Browser A: After making the guest as the new host, original host clicks on “Reclaim Button”


Device (please complete the following information):
