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.
In addition to being available on Windows & Mac, we have released iOS 2×4 (mobile) and 3×3 (iPad), along with Large Gallery and Together Mode. You will see these options with the latest version from the app store. We are targeting availability for Android clients (mobile and tablet) this quarter as well.
You can read more about Large gallery view, Together mode, as well as other new meetings experiences here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/new-meeting-and-calling-experience-in-microsoft-teams/ba-p/1537581
Currently 7x 7 so 49.
what is the maximum number of videos and screens in a meeting? 9 or 16? is there a plan to make it higher??
Please enable more concurrent videos of participants, so that MS Teams can be more worthful.
For the 56,910 who voted for this, trust me you need MS TEAMS MEETING DELEGATION!
You should do what Zoom did. Put multiple cameras in different pages. This would allow us to "flip through" those pages and see everyone's cameras without them having to be cramped up in one screen, if that makes sense.

The web based version is way behind. You can still only see one person at the time during a meeting. When will this change? Could we at least get the 3x3 grid to the webversion?
When will the large gallery-view be accessible on the web based version?
I tried it with 8 clients but I could only see 1 client - so frustrating! I reverted to old version & saw 4 instead. Does it matter if clients join from a mobile phone?
When will these new features be coming to Linux Teams? I'm still using the early beta, and I haven't heard anything about updates since!
Increasing the number of participants seen in a single screen from 9 to higher is the most important requirement. Again muting and unmuting the participants from organiser.
So when will this be coming to Linux, Android, and the Web?

I believe there may be a buggy behavior, sometimes incoming video/sound behaves like the internet connection is bad, but after restarting teams this recovers (without any change to internet connection).

Equivalently consider the ability to force the conference owner to pin a particular participant's video.
I can’t seem to view all participants on the web based version of Teams. We have a Chromebook for virtual school and the Chrome OS app isn’t very 1st grader friendly. The web version is easier to navigate, but we can only see one person at a time. I don’t see the option for Gallery View. Is that right?
Can you please add at least 3x3 to the Web Browser version of Teams? Chromebook users are missing out
Good job improving Teams, Together mode is fantastic, however I only see the classroom and not the other backgrounds. Will they be available soon or can I download backgrounds for Together mode somewhere and where should they be placed? I know you can change wallpapers one by one by posting photos in% AppData%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads, but where are they put for Together mode?

In our company, we have the policy to only sit on every second chair due to COVID-19, but in together mode we are too close to each other, could you please add the option to enable social distancing mode.

Unfortunately this ship has sailed and we're fully invested in Zoom at this point. A little late on this one, but thanks for all your work on this.
Unfortunately I missed the meeting with those other 49 people, because I have multiple accounts and Microsoft Teams is not telling me when somebody is calling me!

Awesome! Why are these new features not enabled for the Microsoft Teams Rooms solution?
Teams Rooms now seems to be 'behind' with only 4 screens enabled during Teams meetings.
Any plans to add this for Teams on the Web?
