Show more than 4 active people in video calls
Teams is limited to showing 4 video streams at a time, it would be better if we had some control over that. We do a morning standup every morning with 8 remotes, it would be great if we could see them at all times.
Work is in progress to support more than four active people in video calls. We will keep you posted.
Agreed! Our company employs a fully remote workforce. This is a real issue for us as we have regular meetings with more than 4 people and the employees being all remote, it is critical to be able to see everyone.

Zoom, GotoMeeting, Lifesize, Vidyo, Workplace, Highfive, LiveStorm, ClickMeeting, RingCentral, Sampage, etc.
Most O365 users with All these web conferencing services are waiting for this feature to be added.
I'm certain that MS has done their market researching but we are all willing to pay little extra more to have this features added.
Keep up with this update!
This should be a top priority for Microsoft. More than four on a screen is essential for a productive and truly interactive videoconferencing experience. Please push this out ASAP!
Sandy Phan commented
With a large remote workforce, most video calls at my company include more than 4 participants. It is very difficult to tell when all attendees are present. Only being able to view 4 people makes meetings far less inclusive and interactive.
Grace Carmody commented
I agree with the comment below - moving away from Zoom to Teams for video calls has been difficult on account of the limits in viewing everyone. A large portion of our organization is remote, so this function is critical.
I've been trying to help move our organization away from Zoom and into Teams, but this is a real issue for departments/teams that have regular meetings and want to be able to see everyone (5-10) that are remote .
Paul Leigh commented
Another request, 4 is a too small a limit.
Who only has a team of four? Most department teams are 5-10 people for small to midsized companies. Please, extend the users to a more applicable amount. Other platforms are going to make you obsolete if you can't evolve.

Agreed, we use Zoom for this very reason even though we have a 365 subscription. Enhance this feature!
Sheldon Kelly commented
This functionality is desperately needed.
Bob Dusek commented

Marcelo Suarez Melgarejo commented

Joining the chorus here! Would really help our team to be able to show more than 4 videos!
Please add option to add more than 4 active people on video conference call. We need this option for our organisation
Federico Espinoza commented
Please implement this enhancement request ASAP.
Troy Brown commented
Please make the number of video streams visible configurable in the admin panel so each org can choose what’s best for their environment.
Prashant Patel commented
As same issue we are facing that only 4 video streams at a time. We need more user to join at a time with video steams.
More than 4 please... its weird talking to people you can't see. Multi office company meetings would be easier if I can see more than 4 screens.
