The smart speaker mode allows you to select the layout you want to use for your video in the magic editor. It saves you a lot of time in post-production, since you don't have to manually cut between speakers anymore. And it becomes super easy to make professional looking videos in just a few clicks. The grid layout will display each participant side-by-side or in a grid. You can change the layout of the grade by changing the priority for each part. Priority is used for the grid layout, where videos are displayed from left to right. So choosing a priority, if one will display that participant on the left side of the screen with each increasing number, displaying that participant to the right full screen layout will detect which person is speaking and show only their track and full frame, then automatically switch to the other participant.
