It would be amazing if there's a way to share music or add background office music. And moderator or people could change stations.
Enable Full Screen mode for screenshare
It's a common feature of video conference tools to enable Full Screen mode when seeing someone else's screen. Currently the panel which shows your colleague's screen is too small if you're pair programming, for example. The idea is to click a button (or keyboard shortcut, like 'F') and you will see your colleague's screen in Full Screen mode.
We are considering using Gather for our company, but what is holding us back is the huge CPU usage needed to keep Gather running, as well as crashes during larger meetings because of our computers not being able to handle Gather. We have various setups (Windows with Chrome or Firefox, Ubuntu with Chrome or Firefox, MacOS) and most of us are often times noticing 100% CPU usage during larger meetings - when we all switch over to e.g. Google Meet, the CPU drops to 50% (with the same amount of meeting participants!). See the attached screenshots of the same meeting using Gather and Google Meet. It would be great to know if any performance improvements are planned!
More group-friendly pricing structure.
Every group I've introduced to Gather so far has winced at the pricing tiers. A couple of those groups have recently decided to use a competing platform instead, as they offer up to a 50 person capacity for $9 a month and $2 per person per day for larger events. Can I suggest pricing that's similar to that?
Differentiate between someone being muted and "muted for me"
Sometimes I need to mute someone on my end, but it's difficult to remember who I've muted / if I need to unmute them later, especially when it's possible they have since muted or unmuted (so it's hard to tell if it's because _I_ muted them or if they're just muted on their own). Would be helpful to have some form of differentiation, e.g. a different icon or color for when I've muted someone so I can undo that when appropriate. Maybe something similar to how Discord differentiates "sever mute" (red)?
