The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

Thank you for all the feedback and support!
-Warren

    I'm cool if you guys are at 'the Celt' as long as you are hacking away at this and making it better while sipping your Guinness. I'm forced to use this at work, so at least make it a good UX. Thanks!

    Give us a way to increase or decrease font size in teams. On certain monitors it's really small and hard to read.

    I've started to use web version of Teams to increase font size (and to some other adjustments, like deleting Reply button via user style), but there is no background notifications...

    I am older, but the general MS Office theme works for me under most circumstances. Didn't anyone from the Team project contact anyone from the Office product to reuse existing themes? Hypothesis: you all are spending time in Redmond at The Celt, drinking heavily, and so the small things are starting to slip by...

    "I'm NOT at the Celt," you type as you drink your Guinness while pretending you are typing from a location on campus...

    Font Size too small, this is a huge issue for myself and others that have poor vision. I use the magnify option but it's not the same and is clunky, please allow us to change the overall font of the application so that everything may appear bigger.

    Please create a setting to enable large font, as the way it is now is very difficult for those with vision problems!

    Just had a user report this today and they're only running at 1080p. Font size looks ok on my 1080p screen but not there one, running off a laptop.

    Hoping this is fixed soon.

    If this was done as an electron app (like VS Code) we could just CTRL+, but suspect it is Universal. For now, only the web app is usable (i.e. I can see it).

    It would be nice to change the font of the text and make it a permit change in teams. For people that have a hard time seeing small print.
    For Example; you can go into setting and change the theme on team, you should be able to change the text font overall and make it permit. Its hard to read when it tends to be that small of text.

    Coming from "Slack" i had a headache after a few minutes using MS Teams. The font is to small and the text boxes only use about 50% of the available space? Why? And it seems font-size cannot even be changed?
