Option to turn off Active Speaker Expansion in Gallery View of RC Video Meeting

In gallery view the active user's window slightly expands and zooms in and out as people converse. This is visually distracting, especially during conversations with multiple people. I suggest having the option for users to turn this feature off. Simply highlighting the active speaker with a color border is preferred.

    Hello, have you tried switching from Active Speaker view to Gallery View? This should solve the issue of the expansion of the active speaker: https://support.ringcentral.com/video/in-meeting-controls/viewing-participants-ringcentral-video-desktop-web.html

    This 'feature' was clearly designed and approved by people who are not easily visually distracted. Heaven forbit you put an autistic or ADD person on a meeting with this -- the only thing they'll remember or focus on is the movement of the box on the screen.

    When something like this is added, there needs to be a way for users to turn it off. IIRC, there was a setting for the indicator of who was speaking in previous versions, so why that was converted to a distracting animation without any way to turn it off is beyond me. Please add such a setting ASAP. Thanks!

    This expanding, blinking box is one of the most distracting features I have ever seen. Can we toggle it off?
