There are two layout modes provided inside the room - Tiled Mode (tiled) and Automatic Mode (auto).

In Automatic Mode the current active speaker is being displayed in a larger tile and also fine-grain controls like pinning and fullscreen are hidden from the layout.

Sample use cases:

  • You may want to change the room layout mode on the fly during the call.

  • You may have developed a mode switcher outside the Samba iframe and want to control the layout inside the room.

The related event is layoutModeChanged, if you want to be informed when the layout mode has been changed.
