Hangout How To

I found myself googling how to make Google Hangouts follow speaker. Sometimes I click on a specific speaker to put their webcam centermost in my display. However, switching back to "focus follows speaker" mode was not obvious. Simply click on the speaker (at the bottom) that you already have selected and a green outline around the speaker will turn off. This "toggles" the focus follows speaker mode (off or on). Clicking on a different speaker will just move "permanent" focus to the other speaker, so you must select the current speaker (which is more like a "de-select".)
