Spotlight support for custom meeting UI

Description
In previous versions of the iOS SDK a host or co-host could spotlight a participant’s video when using the custom meeting UI. This functionality has been removed from the latest SDK without any replacement.

I know we have discussed this in the past, but I wanted to see if there are any plans to add this back to the SDK. It is sorely missed.

Which version?
v5.7.1

To Reproduce(If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Call MobileRTCMeetingService.spotlightVideo on a user.
    Expected result: video is spotlighted.
    Actual result: video is not spotlighted.

Smartphone (please complete the following information):

  • OS: iOS

Additional context
It is understood that the spotlighting system has changed in the app to allow for multiple spotlights, but now the old spotlighting has been removed without a proper replacement.

Hey @jeremy.provost,

Thanks for using the dev forum!

This is on our longterm roadmap to add this feature back into custom UI. We do not yet have an ETA yet, however.

Thanks!
Michael
