Guest Control allows the guest to control the rotation of the host's Pivo Pod on their end. They can do this by swiping left and right on their smartphone or using the arrow keys on their keyboard when using a computer/laptop.
By default, the Guest Control permission is enabled for the guest. This means that the guest can activate/deactivate the Guest Control feature to manually rotate the host's Pivo Pod from their side. As soon as the guest activates and takes control of the Pod, the Guest Control icon will be white on the host's screen.
The host can determine if they’d like to give the guest permission to activate/deactivate the Guest Control feature. If the host doesn’t wish to give the guest access to the feature, they can disable it at any time by clicking on the Guest Control icon located at the most left of the menu bar. The Guest Control icon will turn red on the host's screen once the permission is disabled. Once the Guest Control permission is disabled, the guest won't be able to activate/deactivate the feature from their end.
