Join a video meeting without incoming video to save bandwidth
When participating a meeting, I don't have an option to save bandwidth by shutting down incoming video. [You can close the outgoing video, though]. In situations like attending a meeting abroad through mobile data connection, the video consumes 100's of MB's for a 10-minute meeting. (compared to plain audio, which would be only probably approx 1MB/minute). Or in other cases where you want to save bandwidth and video doesn't come through with good quality (like when working over vpn with a big latency)
Skype for Business had an option to join a meeting with audio only.
This is an important feature for anyone tethering while on a fixed data plan. Last week, an hour+ video conference it used over 5G of data!
“voice + screen share (no video)” should also be included as an option.
this is same for VDI, having the capability to join audio only ( no incoming video) will reduce performance issues.
I use mobile to listen in, while I RDP to my workstation for the shared content from a separate workstation. (Skype for Business does this nicely)
I'd rather have the option to choose audio only, than 2 seconds of conversation followed by 5 seconds of nothing happening. Joining meetings on my iPhone is impossible (not everyone has 4G you know)
