Is there an option to not display video for other participants in a meeting?

If my wifi is weak, I would like the ability to not see anyone's video, and only hear their audio, in order to save bandwidth and potentially allow me to communicate with people on the call without it freezing due to not being able to handle displaying video. I know I can control whether my own video is turned on or not. But it would be nice to also be able to choose to not see other's videos if wanted. This would be on a PC.

I am not sure as a participant you can stop other people's video from displaying.. Only a host can decide if the meeting can be without video. So as a normal participant you can only stop your video being displayed

Does this make everyone on the call not be able to see other participants videos? I just want them to not display for myself, but allow them to continue to use video and the other participants to see it.

This doesn't seem to be the answer to the question I asked. As a participant of a meeting, can I choose to not see other participants videos? I am not asking whether a host can mute peoples audio, or turn off their ability to use video. I want everyone to be able to do what they want, but just chose to not display the other participants video on my computer, in an effort to use less bandwidth.
