Show video for all people in Video meeting
Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.
This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video of all the participants on the screen.
We are excited to announce the 3×3 video view has been rolled out 100% to for Windows and Mac Clients. If you aren’t seeing 3×3 yet, please logout and log back in to the client.
We realize 3×3 is a start, but not good enough… as mentioned, we are continuing to work to include more videos during a meeting, as well as enabling support for mobile devices. Hence, the “partially done” status.

When teachers communicate with a class of students, they need to see all students. 9 is better than 4, but not good enough. The message is loud and clear - we will have to use Zoom for this purpose going forward if Teams can't make it happen to see all participants. And as a devoted Microsoft and Office fan, that makes me sad.

Was happy with 3x3 on my laptop. However: our Logitech Tap with Teams Rooms (with the latest updates) is still on 2x2. When will a grid of 3x3 (or more) be released to Teams Rooms? (MTR)
Please allow the organiser/presenter to enable to disable the video of the participants as some didn't realise they ON their camera which sometimes disturb the class
Cuold you please advise why the video screen on Ipad application still shows max of 4. Is there any settings that we need to change?
I updated the application and sign out and sign in again, but nothing is changed.
Any advice on this is much appreciated.

Can someone from Microsoft please comment on Linux 3x3 support? Even if there's no timeline, at least let us know it's being worked on!
Yes please need to see more people. I am resisting my school using zoom because I believe teams to be more secure but definitely need to see more people
Microsoft has been promoting Teams for school use. However, very few schools have classes with only nine students. Seeing only nine video streams at a time is simply not conducive for class use.
When will the video grid be improved to at least 5 X 5? It if won’t happen by September 1, we will likely go with a competing product, such as Zoom.

What about an update on when this will be on par with the rest of the market? We are having trouble protecting our installed base because we do not have this functionality. If were able to provide SOME form of a timeline, we may be able to preserve these clients??!!
I agree with everyone else on this issue. We need to be able to view everyone's screens like Zoom. Teachers want to see the faces of their students. Teachers are choosing Zoom over Microsoft Teams Meetings because they can see the screens of all their participants.
I also echo the comments of others - Need a gallery view on a second monitor just like we can do in Zoom and WebEx if we want to displace zoom and webex.
soon 49 ?
> “The Microsoft Teams roadmap does include increasing the number of people viewable during a Teams video call to 49,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in an email to CRN.

When will 3x3 be released to Teams Rooms?
Teams need to show all participants in a video meeting, it is urgent as they are showing a significant backlog in their technology
yes, please....3X3 is good, but still not enough for school classes!
Yes, please enable more people at once than 9. I mean, 9 is okay but I run a dance school and need to see as many of my students at once to help them with how to improve. At the moment I have resorted to pinning and un-pinning different people to try and cycle through them. Not ideal.
Please, please, please give us more than a 3x3 grid. We use it for school applications and our typical classes have 25 participants, thus a 5x5 grid will do. I can, however, understand that many schools have much larger classes.
The usefulness of Teams will increase a lot if this can be sorted out.

How can we scroll to see rest of the participants. Suppose, while conducting any activity for students; at times teacher needs to see all the students working
Please can we have an update on more than 3x3? It has been two weeks since the last update
I have updated Teams to version 1.3.00.13565 64bit today, but still have only 2x2 video. Is there any solution?
Hi Microsoft Admin,
Thank you so much for at least allowing us to get 3x3 view of videos. This is great!
However, I have a serious concern, although it shows 9 people on-screen during a live call but the recording of the same call shows 4 people (only 4 video frames). We are using the recordings to observe 9 students connected during call (online exam) but we are not able to observe the moments of 9 students but only 4 in recording.
Could you please check and respond, what could be the solution to this on an urgent basis.? Otherwise, we would need to switch to zoom as it shows the all people in recording too.
We are using Microsoft Teams in an organization of more than 15000 employees.
