Video screen size when sharing screen
When video chatting and sharing your screen, the video window is very small and you can't resize it.
When you are in an active meeting and have video and screen sharing enable:
1. Able to resize video preview
2. Able to use multiple monitors with video on one and screen share on the other.
3. Able to move the video around the screen freely.
4. Overlay video on full screen screenshare.
5. Able to freely resize your split screen with video and screenshare.
This feature remains on the backlog at this point. We will update when we have more details to share.

When I am sharing a screen using Microsoft Teams I would also like my face/video to still be visible to everyone else. is there a way for this to happen?
This is really important for accessibility for deaf users who need visuals to lipread as captions aren't always accurate. This is even more important for sign language users who need to be able to position the interpreter in their eyeline and ensure that they are always visible.

Chat pop-out released but it doesn't work with video. We want to see full-screen video on one screen and use Teams at the same time.

We've had to switch to GoToMeeting instead of Teams. I've told my manager. (We used to use Skype-For-Business for our screenshares, which was part of our office365 package [previously Linc.] and that had been fine.) With the move to Teams, we can't work properly now. That's why I've switched services.

When I have two display I would like to see the people in one screen and the share content in other screen.
I agree with the OP, this needs improving urgently.
Given the COVID-19 situation video meetings are becoming increasingly frequent. People will migrate to using other systems if the shared screen / camera image is not re-sizable.

This feature is needed for accessibility. When sharing a screen, the video becomes too small to see the person using sign language to communicate. Please expedite this request.

Participants also need to be able to maximise the shared screen content. Currently teams leaves a lot of dead space and shared content is often too small.
Yes definitelty please! When using it for training - we need to be able to share the screen to go through the presentation, but then the video of the training room is very small. So we can't see if someone raises their hand.
Yes!!!! Please do this!!!!
Esppecially mportant from Laptop since the screen size is small
And I can't make the shard screen take all the realestate

This has to be made available soon. My 7 yo son uses Zoom and he gets this feature. For work I have to use MS Teams so I can't. Go figure!
This is key to replace skype for biz. I am regularly doing virtual team sessions with my direct reports and the visual feedback is key. That's why I use the gallery view in skype for biz which depending on the discussion I resize even to fill one screen width. The purpose of having a video conf is to see the people and observe mimic and gests.Especially, when listening to people with accents video is key. I am using regularly 2screens + laptop screen.MS Teams is fully focused on one screen which I only need when I am travelling
This is vital to the way we are currently doing business. To get closest to the "in person" experience I need to be able to demonstrate a technique on video and share my screen at the same time.

I know that you can share desktop/programme and have teams open on a second screen, but I wish it wouldn't minimise automatically each time - the number of people I've had to walk through this process means that it is broken.
Also, completely agree with OP - sharing a teams file whilst on VC is a pain. Video needs to break out on demand to allow you to either show a file, or work on something within teams whilst having a VC open. As much I like the principal that you're concentrating on the session, quite often you need to access teams or just do your own work when you're on a VC.

This is actually more important to me than the number of video feeds visible at one time. There are lots of times I really need to be able to see the speaker and the shared content at the same time. Preferably on 2 separate monitors.
This is an essential core functionality the product still lacks, without it the product isn't at feature parity with Skype for Business.

My wife is deaf and is currently using teams for speech therapy. When screen is shared video is too small to lipread.

+1 for "As a user I want to see all participants when presenting so that I can capture non-verbal feedback and queues from participants on the content presented.
At the moment you only see one participant."
