Support for Landscape mode in iOS/Android app
Landscape support for iOS would be a real differentiation point to Slack. Slack lacks support for years now. Users of plus size devices would love to read and type to a channel. If you use a Plus size device in landscape and switch to Teams it is quiet annoying that the orientation switches to Portrait as well.
This feature request is still being reviewed.

landscape and even upside down mode is mandatory!
Yep, landscape mode would be great.
I am also looking forward to an update that includes a button with which I can rotate the image 90 degrees. There is work to be done for Microsoft as more and more organizations are using Team.
Since MS Teams drains my phones battery for long telecons, I have to leave it plugged in, really annoying to leave it vertical and it falling over and such.
Sadly still no update. Would really like to be able to use Teams in landscape mode as it will be more efficient typing.

This is essential to be able to use teams on an Android device for working, in particular the camera given that most android devices. I would just android to connect to a virtual windows session in Azure, but I end up taking a laptop home instead.

This is needed. Currently this comes across and a conscious decision to actively hurt the ability to use the app. This is basic Android app design.
It's ridiculous that I can't switch to landscape when I'm in a call on MS Teams. Reading slide contents in portrait mode is a true pain
It's been more than 3 years since the first request for MS Teams to support Landscape mode. Someone said this should not even be a question. It's the most basic of any mobile native apps, all the more so for collaborative apps.
In Singapore Fintech Festival 2020, watching Bill Gates live in conversation on Teams without Landscape mode and the inability for Teams to even support full-screen video streaming to enable mobile users to see clearly the slide which Bill Gates was sharing, makes the entire experience miserable.
I'm sure Microsoft as a behemoth is able to comprehend the urgent need to 'fix' such experience on its Teams platform.
I use lists on a tablet so landscape mode would be easier for my users to see all columns.

Micosoft should add this option to settings to make everybody happy :)
So, that most of the time it works, and if some people want to force to landscape (in my case, i'm using it on a nvidia shield, which goes to portrait now!), that would be great!
i don't understand how this would even be a question. native apps on handhelds aren't complete until they support both orientations unless there is a clear, compelling need to run in only one orientation. think web pages, friends

This feature worked last month and stopped working recently. Major pain in the butt.
I thought it already does this, but yes it's very disconcerting for it to switch to portrait on a 10 inch tablet.
What about the zooming in feature - is that possible somehow in chats? The text is so small on phone screen, zooming in would be much appreciated.
It is unbelievable that in 2020 MS is unable to implement smth so elementary as the landscape mode is!!! You guys have done fabulous features, please add also this seemingly small one, would help a lot in typing. Thank you.
Please add landscape mode so that I can join meetings easily and my phone is brokenN if you add landscape mode it will be easier
This should be addressed already.
Are you kidding me????
I have used it in android in landscape for months and I move to iPhone and it is stuck in portrait?? Seriously?? And do we really need to vote?? Isn’t it obviously clear???

Time to roll out landscape feature - easier to type, attend meetings, share and present documents from mobile on landscape. No reason not to - other apps already have it ingrained.
