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.

Thank your for your feedback Alex. I hope this shows you a lesson. You knew we wanted this feature 3 years ago and now you are late. Everyone is using Zoom now and you have lost millions of potential Team users. As IT manager this kind of things makes my job more difficult. Users don't understand why they have to use Teams instead of Zoom.

I strongly support you increasing this to the same way Zoom shows participants or as close as you can get it! As fast as you can!
We are finding that staff are moving away from Teams meetings to Zoom meetings as they are easier to use with numbers larger than 4. This is making it harder to keep those staff in Teams.
Academic staff find Zoom far easier to use for lecturer/student presentations because of the immediate visual feedback.
So - timeline? When are we getting there? Zoom away.
Hello, with the COVID19 situations we currently face as educators being able to see more than 4 students at a time is a MUST. There are not too many classrooms with less than 4 students and trying run lessons remotely and only seeing 4 faces can be very challenging. Please fats track this feature as quickly as possible. Thanks in anticipation, John Melb Aust
Please do not stop at 3x3, add options like 3x4, 4x5 and 5x6
Das wäre ein wichtiges Feature, gerade jetzt, wo viele im Homeoffice arbeiten.

Thanks Alex for sharing some progress! Fingers crossed that you will deliver sooner rather than later.

Yes, this would be perfect. Instead of only 4 people, let's see all of them :).

Brilliant Microsoft, glad you're now on it!
2 years ago you put this request in to the backlog.
1 year ago you start working on it
feature still not delivered. This is vey poor for a company that want the whole world using o365 and teams for collaboration. We just get rid off a lot of shadow IT and people started to accept teams. Now they go to zoom because Microsoft is not able to deliver feature since years
Ok well we’re on Zoom now. But thanks anyway

I'm promoting Teams to an organisation with 176 members and inability to show multiple people all at once will be the only reason they migrate to Zoom or similar. Microsoft Teams is fantastic and my colleagues are beginning to experiment with it - please sort this ASAP so they have no reason to doubt its potential.
Hi. I appreciate you are working on it, but what most people need to understand is time scales. You must have an idea or estimate you can share?
Good to hear you're working on it. I am adding my voice to the others saying that this is a major weakness of teams. In the current world situation, this is really needed (major understatement). Of course bandwidth rate is a major concern so you don't want Teams killing the network once eight or more videos are streaming so you might have to consider some options to reduce framerate or quality depending on the level of participation in the meeting. This will be important when you have a family at home, parents using Teams for their business while the children are using Hangouts for their lessons.
Well when? How hard can it be for Microsoft? Need it yesterday with CEO asking "WTF"
and Zooomming on.
Thanks for the update (y)
