Mobbing - Observer Mode
Sometimes when pairing, you need to bring in a third set of eyes to answer a question, give a design review, or bring a new perspective. Tuple makes this easy with "Observer Mode".

Observer mode limitations
We don't yet have fully-featured "Mobbing" support yet, and the existing implementation has several limitations which we hope to remove soon!
- There can only be one Observer, for a total of three participants.
- You can only add an Observer when already sharing a screen.
- You can't swap any of the roles while an observer is in the call.
- Observers can't see or send a webcam feed.
