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 request has been accepted by the feature team and is now on the backlog!

I want to be able to Have the Video from a meeting on one monitor and continue to access different teams and chat with other people without minimizing the Video.

while sharing desktop screen Microsoft teams doesn’t allow the shared screen in a different window ( not in the video screen).
Chris Ficek commented
I support this idea because with my hearing loss, I am not able to separate screen share and video onto 2 separate screens to see what is all going on. I rely heavily on lipreading but if I cannot see the person because I am trying to see what is being shared. Same deal if I see the person, but I cannot see the shared screen. With Skype, we can do this but with Teams, we cannot. It would greatly be appreciated if we could get this pushed through. Without this, it poses challenges not only for me but for others as well.
Has it moved from the backlog to the roadmap? What's the ETA?
All of our employees have multiple monitors. how are we going to encourage remote participation in meetings using video conferencing and "extend the conference room" to their remote/home location if they have to watch a mix of content and video feeds all on one monitor/window.
Dean Clarke commented
Will this enable calls to be popped out into their own window?
Fundamental requirement for effective remote work.
Doug Pendergras commented
Presenter should not be trapped in the screen being presented. Many of my users have multiple screens and many applications open windows in other screen. I have to ask the remote presenter to stop presenting, drag the popup over into screen 1 and start presenting again.
Very clunky and requires too much presenter tasks.

Please let us know when this feature will be available, as we were using till now Skype For Business and as you know Microsoft is forcing us to leave Skype for business and start using Teams, but without this feature, it's not possible for us to use Teams for our daily video calls...
Please understand the importance of this feature, when you are forcing to leave an existing working application to a new application, make sure that all of the existing features should be available in the new product.
Waiting for your reply...
If the presenter cannot make their camera the main view in a meeting it completely loses its functionality. We have stopped using cameras altogether because we could not give a single person constant focus. We are typically in a conference room with a large group while our remote people are calling in. We only want to see the conference room view not everyone as they speak.

This is a fundamental requirement for effective remote work.
Would be great to get these improvements to video conference / screen share / dual monitor usability ASAP
raghav rathi commented
We have major issue without dual screensharing. Please increase the priority
Krishna Jain commented
Most of our user work on dual screen and it's good to have dual screen sharing for the far end to see while sharing screens.

The handling of participant video in Teams is a step back when compared to Skype for Business, which allowed you to pop out a participant's video, resize it and/or reposition. Teams does not permit those functions, which means we are stuck showing someone's video in a very small window and positioned where Teams think it should be, Sad that we can't take advantage of multiple monitors or very large monitors with LOTS of screen real estate that could be used to enhance the experience.
Jason Smith commented
This is a huge deal for me. I participate in calls from a 43" monitor, yet the video feed during presentations is limited to about a 1.5" thumbnail.
Can you make it at least as good as Skype for Business.
Chris Ficek commented
I fully support the enhancements because it is very difficult for me to lip-read users when the presenter is screen sharing. I either have to toggle back and forth but then I miss out on what was being said because it takes a while for the video to load (after toggling between screens). If we had the flexibility like what we had with Skype, it would allow me to separate screen sharing and video chats windows on separate monitors.
Mike O'Neill commented
UI feels clunky, should have the flexibility to allow window resizing.
+1 Splitting the screen between people who are actually sharing video, and those who aren't (e.g. just showing their picture) is nonsensical.
Example: picture a meeting with a few remote participants, and then a group of people in a conf room sharing video. Someone in the conf room start whiteboarding.
Teams literally chops the shared video IN HALF to show you the tiles of the remote participants. So you can see 50% of a landscape whiteboard then a stack of tiles showing the participants. Seems like such an odd choice, why?
