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!

much needed feature for users with ultrawide monitors!
Iain Green commented
Any update on where this is in the backlog?
still in backlog? no ETA?
Important feature and for long time ago taken to the backlog. When will it be available?

This issue is the main reason I cannot get full acceptance of Teams within my company. Executive level management find the screens to be completely unacceptable for group meetings and won't use it. The admins would prefer to use it over Go To Meeting because we find it easier to use, but I agree that the visuals are not good when you cannot use multiple monitors to move screen share to another monitor. I think there are many of us that would be happy if you would move this up in priority on your backlog.
So, it was excepted 12 months ago !!!! .... How far away is it before these features are added... they are much needed
When doing outsourced development on different continents this is a must have for communicating effectively and sharing material.
This is a must have, for my users to accept running meeting from Teams.
Any update on this one? At one of my clients this is an important part for the use and adoption of Teams.

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.
