  1. Provide call controls while in a Teams meeting

    While using the Teams client on Windows10 for a scheduled meeting, I clicked on the Activity tab and lost all call controls. I had to click back on the meetings tab and then on the Join button again in order to hang up the call.

    Could you please provide functionality similar to SfB, where the ongoing call pops out from the client and is always available for the caller to mute, hang up, etc.?

  2. Video not as beneficial in team calls

    Sharing your video during a call, it should pop up who is talking so you know who is talking. Refer to Skype capabilities on video.

  3. call search

    In Calls tab, when I type in Top Search Bar, it doesn't pop up my Contacts. I have to go under A-Z to search/find. I should be able to do it in both areas.

  4. Replicate similar stage functionality to Show Stage in Skype for Business

    When I share a screen it would help if there was an option to see what the others can see. Similar to the Stage options in Skype for business.

  5. Webcam quality is very low

    I have a full HD (1080p) webcam which hasn't the same quality in video call than with Skype for Business. We also have fiber optic Internet connection so it's not the cause of the poor image.

    It happened on many different computers so I guess it's an issue from Teams.

    Question: can you make the video quality much higher?

  6. Pop up a widget for incoming calls to make it easy to answer the call (e.g. Like Skype)

    If a call comes in on Skype, it pops up a window that lets me answer. Teams lack this and even makes me hunt for which contact is calling so that I can answer it.

  7. Integrate Teams with Zoom.US

    Zoom is an excellent replacement for WebEx, maybe even the best right now. Slack allows us to force Zoom.us to be configured as the audio call, video call and screen sharing interface.

    Zoom.us is fast to launch, so it makes it ideal for audio calls, video calls and screensharing.

    I'd suggest Teams allow admins to config to force use of calls with Zoom.

    PS. WebEx VP Engineering started a company called Zoom, and it's really good (and inexpensive too).

  8. Mac app exits full screen after call

    I keep the teams app open full screen on a separate desktop on my mac. Whenever I enter a call and screen share, after the call ends the teams app is now windowed on my primary desktop and I have to fullscreen it again. When the day is full of calls this can be a very frustrating activity

  9. Visual feedback when I speak would be helpful

    When I join a team meeting, the profile images of all other members in the meeting are displayed. Whenever one of them speaks, a subtle "sound wave" effect radiates out from the speaker's profile image. This is useful, as it lets me see who is speaking.

    However, when I speak, I do not see any feedback at all. This means that if my microphone cuts out, or I forget to un-mute myself, I have no idea that nobody can hear me. On the other hand, I may forget to mute my microphone while someone else is speaking, and accidentally inject…

  10. Incoming call popup is does not display over other open windows

    When Teams is minimized to activity tray (lower right) the popup for an incoming call will place itself behind other windows I have open such as browsers etc.

  11. Add the ability to easily make a existing scheduled meeting a Teams Video meeting (Skype meeting).

    I have lots of existing scheduled meetings. It would be nice to easily add a video option when needed to existing meetings. I shouldn't have to recreate the meeting

  12. Uncoupling the mini-viewer during a call

    I'd like to be able to uncouple the video mini-viewer from the Teams interface, so I could drag it to another monitor (and make it full-screen) while keeping the regular Teams interface open on the first monitor.

    That way, I could more easily see the caller, or what he is sharing, full-screen, whilst keeping one eye on my own Teams content.

  13. Better support for video/phone calls in conference rooms

    I need an easy way to pull up a video/phone call in a conference room without potentially exposing private messages, meetings, etc. This could be a different account, or a login with an option to enter teams with a limited "conference" based feature set. A "do not disturb" feature would work, but not completely disable private sections.

  14. Video when minimized

    If you minimize the client in a video conference, it would be great if it would bring up a small video window on top... similar to what Skype For Business when it is minimized and you are in a video call.

  15. Would like to have a Teams Soft Phone

    I hate Jabber as a chat agent, and the Skype underneath, already takes care of the screen sharing, and team collaboration via chat. However, it makes for a pretty good soft phone, but I would love it if Microsoft could partner with Cisco, or something be done to add a Soft Phone to the Teams ecosystem.

  16. Answer incoming calls automatically

    This is a very convenient feature that is available in skype, it allows for setup of a kiosk station with minimal management effort.

    Features from skype.

    Answer incoming calls automatically
    * Start my video automatically when I am in a call

    As it can be invasive, skype also has a feature to Allow calls from... Anyone/people on my Contact list only

    As we dont have a contact list in Teams I would suggest that the feature could/would be scoped to Favorites

  17. separate audio controls from the OS

    It would be great if you could separate the audio config for the application away from the OS. This way, I can use a headset for calling, and an external mic for Cortana.

  18. Show when your video is being displayed

    When there is a video conference with more than 4 people, it seems to show the 4 most recent speakers on the screen. It would be very useful to know if your own video image is being displayed to others. Your own image is displayed at the bottom right, if it could be made to have a thick red border when your video is active it would be great.

  19. Allow me to disable video on my end

    My low bandwidth often makes video choppy and degrades overall call quality. Being able to disable video of other call members on my end would allow me to use precious bandwidth for voice instead of video.
