Let us make the font size bigger (Zooming)
Make a way to make the font size in the application bigger.
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!

Outlook reply window changes the zoom feature doesn't work...How do you change it back?
Fix my money plus account so I can zoom the font size larger. Thank you
In group chats - the ability to change fonts, font size, and even font color is extremely useful in tracking comments from particular members (even though there is the icon to the side)
Speaker 1 may choose Times Roman 12pt in burgundy
Speaker 2 may choose Arial Bold11 pt in dark blue
Speaker three may choose Courier 14pt in hot pink
Much easier to follow who is saying what, and since Skype already had this feature- why not continue it in the "New and Improved" Product?
In case you are not still considering it - please do.
Hello, I see the screen in w10 app very big sized. How can I change resolution or whatever it is? Thak you in advance
Zooming is NOT, I repeat, NOT NOT NOT changing font size. It's changing the whole UI.
This is asinine. This is a feature that has been available on even the most simple text editing software for literally decades.
This is an incredibly poor design choice.
This is incredibly controlling of your users. When did you turn into Apple?
This is completely unacceptable from a customer experience perspective.
Frankly, so many of the 500+ employees at my company are getting fed up with this poor engineering practice that we're going to be switching applications within the next 6 months.
I would LOVE to see the documentation that went into the design of this product and the reasons behind leaving out this critical piece of functionality.
Personally, I question the quality of the product and the engineering team behind it. This should have been part of the MVP, much less a product that's been out for well over a year.
The settings button should be right in front for easy accessibility.
This is just another variation on the limiting UI in Teams. Please work on improving user experiences overall. Too many short comings in this application with UI concerns.
My window is all messed up... my small font is larger then my medium font and my large font is HUGE!!!
I, however, copy/paste some of the information from SHAREPOINT, and it wont resize at all.
Zoom option missing entirely from the fat app - version - 1.1.00.28562 (64 - bit)

Yes, we need a LOT more settings.
But I forgot. MS has already decided on the one best font size, font choice, window size, number of channels to display, colors, and notification sounds. These are, as everyone knows, entirely independent of screen size, screen resolution, environment brightness, personal preference, age, visual acuity, and/or background noise level.
The system font size is NOT enough (relative sizing). If I increase font size in OS it messes up other apps I need the ability to chane the size just in Teams
This is annoying and should have been in the beta version of Teams. This is a HUGE issue and scrolling through the lists it's very clear this is a huge issue for people and needs to be updated today. Add a parameter in settings like they already have in Skype to keep your font selection until you decide to change it. I don't understand how leadership didn't catch this while testing it or using it even a few times.
I want to be able to change the font size without zooming the whole UI. I believe we should be able to make the font bigger in the active Window, just like you would on say Microsoft Word, Visual Studio or even the Windows 10 mail app. All of these allow the font size to be increased independent of the UI. Scaling the whole UI feels like a hack.
I personally don't consider this idea to be done (or partially done) as there was a separate feature request relating to the UI zoom.
Please make a setting for changing the font size in Microsoft Teams!
The zoom feature only worked for a couple of days....and has not worked for us since.

Thanks for implementing this feature!

It would be amazing if we could change the default text settings for the chats. Font, SIZE, boldness, etc. The current default text is so small and hard to read.
