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 large gallery view (7×7 videos) and Together mode are available to the public for desktop & mobile.
Large Gallery is an optional feature and can be turned on at any time during the meeting. The new large gallery has a flexible design and will deliver a network-optimized client video experience that works on multiple device categories.
Note: For the status of this feature for Government Clouds, please visit https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/926545/suggestions/40000762.

I think this feature is essential for teachers and classrooms. I hope this is fixed VERY fast.
This is a must! With class of 20+ I really would like to see more students at a time!
this is most obvious and the most needed feature. Not sure how Microsoft a trillion dollar company and its product managers prioritise features... but this could be a Nokia moment for MS teams

We NEED this - don't want to ditch Teams for Zoom, but that is a real possibility if this doesn't come soon.

Utilizing GoToMeeting over MS Teams until we can see everyone on the call
Ken Root commented
The sooner the better, especially right now when we're all working remote and using it more than ever!
With this feature, Teams could replace Zoom for our meeting with more than 4 peoples. This is the next most important update to be made to Teams.

This NEEDS to happen -- especially if you are billing yourself as THE platform for online meetings. When I am meeting with my students they all want to see each other - not just four at a time. I work with kiddos diagnosed with special needs and it is extremely difficulty to explain how only four people can be seen at a time when the Microsoft competitor allows all the students to be viewed all at once. The parents prefer your competitor as well... so please fix this issue!!!
We urgently need this, Microsoft will lose market share to Zoom and webex and other tools. we cannot lose by a simple feature.

The fact that this is not supported astounds me. Any other option supports more...#sad. You missed the boat MS.

Can't come fast enough. Can't use Teams for company-wide conversations. Using Zoom and other solutions because of this.
Barry McLane commented
Our clients have demanded to switch to Zoom because of this limitation. Too bad, this week could have been a big push for Teams...
Bad news. I read next update will provide another limitation to 9 instead of 4. 9 is better than 4 but again, why?

Yes, please! My corporate office had us move to work from home three weeks ago (they were awesome in their COVID-19 response). We're actually on a TEAMS call right now and there was a comment about being able to see more than four people. That update would be great!
Please make this happen, if not during this pandemic then for the next one at least!

Adding to the need to have way more than 4 friendly faces on my screen. I'm switching some of my calls to Zoom until this is functional. Would rather use the company's Teams platform.
Our company is trying to move away from Zoom, even after we get through the pandemic. Adding this feature will help us to move faster.
Because of the virus we are going online.
We have been told, in no uncertain terms, to use Teams but as I have my class divided into groups of 6 I will defy orders and use Zoom. Absolutely useless and poor social etiquette to have a group of 6 children and only show 4.
Obviously no one at Microsoft has training in child education.
3x3? ummm...try 6x6 at least!
