    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

        We switched from Skype to Team and can’t read messages because don’t is so small.

        The fix should only be make font size configurable. Force user to use a bigger size font is not acceptable.

        One solution would be to allow a viewer in chat to "full screen" the view (particularly when the presenter is sharing a desktop / document on the screen).

        Currently, vision impaired user has to ask the presenter to magnify the view, affecting all viewers, rather than being able to view documents full screen and additionally use magnification tools on her end.

        We have a user that is visually challenged.

        Teams Chat doesn't appear to natively support zoom / magnify, making it unusable for her to participate in video chat and screen sharing. We have to switch to GoToMeeting.

        We're looking for better accessibility support. Perhaps there's a solution we're missing?

        While you're working on it, please add the ability to change the background color and font color on the Apps Planner. I find that the default view of light purple is it (?) text on white background is very hard to read. Not enough contrast. I find myself having to switch from Teams to Planner just to be able to read comfortably. Thanks!

        Especially if I am using an iPad, not a phone...
        Mostly I use this because I generally am not limited to 4pt-font size!

        It is as important to make the font size smaller. Key is that we need be able to set default font size.

        Any Status? The size is really obstructing me from using Teams on Larger resolutions

        I have been using the RSS feeds connector feature and the font is way too small to read any of the new feeds. Everything else is ok but I don't get why you can't just customize the font on the entire application under preferences. Shouldn't be that difficult.
