Chromecast and Apple TV compatibility
From the Android and iOS app, there should be an ability to cast the meeting to a nearby TV or projector, using universal protocol. This would make it superior to WebEx's proprietary projector/video feature.

Since I have to watch my school classes on my phone. This would be extremely helpful since it's hard to watch a apresentation and also see the camera.
I tried to share my mobile screen to TV, and it works enough except that the sound keeps on my phone. There's also the microphone/camera/... Bar and mobile notification that messes with my TV
You may have problems with the broadcast, so you need to set up the TV first. Chromecast usually works without problems, but sometimes there may be crashes. I've had similar situations before, so I'll share my personal experience of how I fixed this issue. I usually use a special code to change the TV settings correctly. To do this, you need to know the model and number of the TV, as well as the detailed instructions that I find on the https://xtrium.com/sky-q-remote-codes/ to make it work. I've also heard that using special codes can solve a lot of problems, but I've only used it in this case.I'll let you know later what other problems can be solved using the configuration codes. I advise you to try this option, I think it will work.

Implement it like google meet does with chromecast.
- use teams normally on any device
- add the option to cast to a chromecast device to all participants, as they all can be in different rooms
- when casting, display a combined stream on the chromecast. so standard a grid with the up to 16? last speaking people (or maybe start with the last/current speaker) , or the display of the presenter, or the spotlighted participant.
- leave the stream without audio to prevent issues with audio feedback
This would be a great feature for me working from home to have the meeting on a separate (large) display, or when the pandemic situation is over to have affordable means to have good hybrid meetings (with participants in a room and some remote workers). This won't bite into the teams rooms business case as companies which would plan solutions like this won't consider the team room anyway.
Would be a really good feature when so many are working from their homes.

Yes with Apple TV it's now more than necessary
But still using your cam and mic on phone/tab/computer. Would be super great
would make all the difference for us to switch to teams!
Especially where a screen is shared, but still have the voice and camera in the app.
Bit of a no-brainer really. Can't believe it doesn't do it.
Super nice idea

100% support this idea, Would make it fantastic for huddle rooms
