Video conferencing applications typically only allow one person to talk at a time. This is perfect for meetings that are presentations, but may not be acceptable for virtual social events (e.g., "happy hours") or brainstorming type meetings where, in the physical world, people naturally break off to have smaller, more intimate meetings to discuss a specific topic. Recent advancements to video conferencing applications have enabled users to create sub-meetings where smaller discussions can take place within a greater meeting. However, these sub-meetings restrict users to only seeing and hearing the participants within that sub-meeting without any context of the other discussions occurring at the same time. Techniques herein may provide for displaying a list of the top words being used in different sub-meetings, which can help users to determine the topics being discussed and decide which sub-meeting they may desire to join.
