When I start a Google Hangout, the video is auto focusing with the person talking. But once I click on just one of the person's video, it just focuses on that person. I want it to return to the auto focus video mode again. Is there any way to do this?

Just click on the focused person's video again to return to auto focusing.

Note that if one participant is sharing their screen, the focus will still switch to them even when they're not speaking and you've de-selected your explicit focus. – Scott H Apr 22 at 17:57
