If you use Group FaceTime with more than a handful of people, all those participants in one chat can be difficult to follow. That's why Apple automatically enlarges the tiles for people who are speaking now, bringing them to the fore. However, all that zooming in and out can be quite distracting, and now there's a way to turn it off when needed.
Before proceeding, please know that the below function is only available in iOS 13.5 and above. Apple first added it in the iOS 13.5 developer beta 3 and iOS 13.5 public beta 2 updates. It was a nice surprise to see, and a sign that Apple is listening to comments from its users, many of whom found the old way of handling Group FaceTime tiles less than ideal.
As Apple puts it: "During Group FaceTime calls, the speaker's tile automatically expands," that way, "you never lose track of the call." This is what it looks like in action: [1

On FaceTime video calls with more than four people – all the way up to a maximum of 32 people – it can get quite crazy and confusing when Apple automatically resizes the tiles of your contacts on the screen. To avoid messy auto zoom, go to "FaceTime" in Settings and find the section Automatic Promience . Tap the switch next to "Talk" to disable the function.
