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!

The idea is to allow the user the determine the general size of text within the visible area of interactive conversations. There is a lot of free space on the right and left of a line of back and forth instant messaging. Being able to zoom in or increase the text size of content in the chat window would make the experience more intimate and close as it would feel closer to the user than other windows visible on multiple monitors. Don't zoom like Chrome (used to?) does where all tabs zoom in when zooming the page. This would help a lot. My enterprise is on the precipice of embracing Office 365 and Teams instead of Slack. Improving Chat capabilities will win our hearts.
Yes zooming would be great.

It sounds good to me.
+1 for I'll settle for Control+/- (zoom in and out)
Yes please make zoom in and out!! I use montitors but also a laptop and i need a much smaller window(and font) for teams for the laptop screen
+1 for smaller text also. It needs to adjust down to at least 70% (if not lower). Also, make the window able to be sized smaller. Users need to be able to make it as inconspicuous as they'd like, and 800 pixels wide is too large
Agreed with Andy Booth.

zooming is good for me.
ZOOM would be sufficient for me, I agree with the other one more.
Dawn Johnson commented
I agree with Andy's comments as well. Don't take away real estate where it doesn't need to be taken away, but sometimes I really need the conversation I'm having to be a bigger size because I can't see it.

Andy's comment below is right on: +1. Setting a font size (ctrl + and ctrl -) is the way to go.

Zooming is handy, but it is not a replacement for the ability to set a custom font size.
- zooming may lose useful screen real-estate as uninteresting parts of the UI are scaled
- zooming may affect navigation & may require zoom out or excessive scrolling to get to certain UI elements.
- zooming will probably need to be done per session, which is at best inconvenient.
Please add the ability to set a font size that's comfortable for the user. The ability to set different UI navigation & content font sizes would be great too (i.e. as Outlook can).

Works for us, thx

"Please let me know in the comments if the ability to zoom in as well as use the keys CTRL_- and CTRL_+ to zoom in and out, would me most of your needs."

While zooming would be sufficient, I would prefer font increases.
This is pretty much the primary missing feature preventing us from making the move to Teams.
"very close to done" ... last October. How about another update? This is an *accessibility*issue on the desktop app (not online) where Ctl+ does NOT work--it should be a priority.
