Make widescreen option in video calls
When there are only 2 video callers on Teams, you can see the video in widescreen mode. However, with 3 or more callers, the video is severely cropped and you can no longer see a widescreen view of the room. This creates a very poor video experience since you can no longer see everyone in the room. It would be nice if there was an option to view participants in widescreen mode. Even in this sample image, you can see the room on the left only shows one person and everyone else at the table is cut off. If it were widescreen, you'd see everyone.
Come on Microsoft, make it possible to set Fit to Frame as a default setting. Ridiculous that you can't do this!
I would like Teams to work better with Meeting Owl.
This is Fix for OWL. camera?
This appears to be an option in the desktop client now where I can right-click that participant's video and make it fit as opposed to Teams clipping horizontally.

I'm not sure how long it has been there, but this is now available in the Windows 10 client by right-clicking on the video stream you want to make widescreen (Fit to frame).
Please make this a priority, my full room camera systems are being severly impacted by this switch to teams.
