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.
We are happy to announce that pinning of specific participant’s video in Meetings is rolled out to the public ring now. Enjoy!

Yes, I need this feature
Ammon Williamson commented
We sorely need this so we can use Teams to include remote participants in an on-site meeting - we want them to see the white board and the board room, not the faces of other remote participants.

Please provide some kind of layout customization, or at least the option to identify a main presenter. Also, support for portrait mode 9:16 screen layout would be really helpful. Currently the 9:16 portrait layout is unusable for more than one meeting participant.

I am amazed that this has still not been addressed. Had a disastrous company meeting this morning because none of my remote salespeople could see the entire conference room.
This has been out here for almost 2 years...Can you at least reply?
This a big bug

To compare those telepresence solution, the MSTeams not even lack of the video meeting layout control from the host but also not allow a dual screen support to split video into one screen, and the computer desktop / application into a second screen which is a very crucial feature for business and enterprise user to provide a rich communication to the near and far sides.
This feature is necessary for deaf person.
Because they need to look well face and mouth to understand what other said.

Google Hangouts has this functionality to put the person we need to view as the focus. It is a requirement of any video meeting app in business, I really hope that this is considered soon.

As we push further for user acceptance, this one is coming back to bite us more and more often. Can't wait for an update.

Or, more generally, let the user select/tile/close(minimize) what's shown during a meeting.
eg: I want to see BOTH the live video of the presenter and what they are sharing.
I cannot do that currently. I either see the live-video of the presenter and 3 useless avatar windows of people in the meeting, or I see the shared presentation, and tumbnail of the live-video at the bottom right (with all the other avatars).
Ryan Hoss recommended to stretch it . which works very well with two screens if you set the other screen to be as if it is to the side and below the other screen so u can drag it diagonally and it will take the whole 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
Video layouts and customization are a must, especially since Teams is competing with WebEx and Zoom.

This really really is a must, why cant we have a simple select presenter option
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!
Atleast implement spotlight lock, this is really frustrating not being able to see properly if using just one camera.

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.
