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.

        Agree with others. Should be able to see specific person if needed. Also on mobile is possible to see full picture with touch move, but not on Desktop

        100% agree - this is a no-brainer feature that should be part of the out-of-the-box experience for Teams.

        How is this not a default feature with this trash product? Ohh ya it's trash i forgot. Back to Skype for Business.

        100% agree that this needs to be implemented. We'd like to use Teams for our full-staff meeting but need to be able to control which camera is shown full-screen.

        Same issue as all the other posters to this point. Please add feature to allow us to choose a single video stream to fill the full screen instead of random splitting of other connected user's icons. Thanks.

        Really a hassle when we have 3-party call, and on the other side can only see half of the people in the meeting room as it's a split in portrait mode. In WebEx, the whole room is visible to everyone.

        Just had an issue with our remote sales folks. We need to be able to show 1 person or room as full screen when presenting. Microsoft, when you do plan to fix this?

        This is a pretty major feature to be able to run remote collab meetings and trainings.

        Yes, the lack of this feature wastes everybody's time. Trying to share a whiteboard via camera and you can only see 1/2 of it. Wow. Horrible software.

        it seems like a simple request to be able to make a single user full screen.
        its not fun missing half the video while staring at a circle with initials in it.

        Deal-Killer, the most imporant feature for web conferences doesn't work.

        Microsoft, PLEASE FIX THIS - it makes Teams almost unusable.

        I can't believe this still hasn't been addressed. This is probably the most annoying thing about Teams and why I much prefer to use Polycom for multi-participant video chats, along with it's better video quality. Seriously, as a Software Engineer I can't understand why it hasn't already been addressed.
