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.
A hearty up-vote for landscape! I can't believe these mobile collaboration apps don't support landscape mode from day one. What are they thinking? Microsoft has a window (no pun intended) of opportunity here - strike while the iron is hot! Make landscape happen!
My vote is to be able to use in landscape. Much of what we post is in table format and I have to scroll to the right to see the most important part for quick decisions.
I noticed when using Teams for a phone call, the App moves to Landscape mode and back, and as @Brandon stated it apparently is already supported. Perhaps they could just remove the lock?
Hey MS Teams Team
Are you able to make the Teams App (iPhone/Andriod) rotate to a landscape view when in a chat screen??
Sometimes is the little things. This is one of those times. On my tablet and my phone, I often am in landscape mode when at office. There isn't that much UX that needs to be developed for this one, so please?
The app ignores system settings and enforces a rotation lock for vertical orientation. This makes typing much slower and decreases the usability of the app.
By using 3rd party apps to force rotation override on android everything seems to work fine forcing landscape, so there does not seem to be any technical reason s why the orientation lock flags need to be set.
