How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

full screen only one person from the call

On a call with more than 2 persons, unless someone is actually presenting his/her screen, the screen is usually split between the others on the call. Its always a split screen, up to four seperate window. But if someone uses its web cam, lets say to show us a white board... we can't make that specific person's web cam presentation full screen.

        Currently in the midst of an implementation of Teams and ran into this issue during a live update for the whole of our business. Rather embarrassing. Please add this feature

        Please add this feature!

        Please allow you to pop out any user or screen share to maximize or place on a second screen.

        We have many meetings where only one uses a web camera. All others attending is an icon. Being able make the web camera view larger is needed. Please make it so you can pop it out and place it on a second screen. It would be very cool if I could have the web cam on one screen and their screen share on a second.

        I've been looking at using Teams for long distance training purposes for the added security that O365 provides. I need to be able to broadcast a training presentation (video) in Full Screen to participants rather than have the Host presentation on 25% of the screen, at best. As the Host, I want to be able to have the ability to mute and disable video of participants. I'm surprised to learn that Teams does not have similar features as Skype or Zoom provide. It seems to me that Teams is only functional as a Video Conferencing platform. I'd be happy to be advised otherwise!

        I am trying to switch from Zoom to meetings. Not being able to full screen video is a deal breaker. Its THE most important feature. I've spend around 4 hours on support calls with Office 365 and 3 of our tech people. Every call starts with us explaining that we are trying to "host" a meeting and that requires full screen video. The support tech is always confused by this - goes away to find answers - schedules another call - and then we start all over again. I have wasted SO much time and money to be told today that it just isn't possible. I'm baffled!

        As an addon to the below, for single screen, once you get the real estate resolved, you can open Magnifier app in Win10 to zoom in to full screen.

        Work Around: As the viewer, do not maximize Teams. Instead, drag out the screen past your monitor. The presentation real estate will get bigger, ultimately creating a full screen of viewing. (this was done with 3 people. (1presenter, 2 viewers) FYI as viewer i have Dual Screen setup. If you are on single screen, still do the same and expand the teams window horizontally beyond your screen, but also narrow it vertically. This makes the display window smaller, but allows you to see more of what is being presented.

        Very important for all meetings! Showstopper for migration from citrix or other meeting tools.

        Jesus Christ, please add this finally. We have 4-8 members per call and nobody can read anything because it's not possible to maximze one screen. I mean, seriously?!

        This has been a problem for my organization as well. 2/3 of our workforce is remote. Teams meetings aren't a choice, they are the only options. As I write this I'm looking at a quarter screen of a whiteboard. Very hard to engage in the meeting when you can't see.

        Since June asking for a basic functionality and nothing... I'll propose to change the tool in my team. Good job...

        Anyone from Microsoft could update us on this? Really a deal breaker, specially as you offer the option to record the meeting, someone doing a presentation should be able to full screen to everyone else.
