Use multiple monitors in team calls, split content (monitor A) and webcam (monitor B)
I have a meeting room with two monitors. I would like to be able to use both monitors in a call. For example when we are called by the product owner, I would like to split the video:
1. On monitor A: The powerpoint presentation
2. On monitor B: The presenters webcam
Now this is not possible. Only one monitor can be used. The presentation will be in full screen. The presenter in a small square at the button.
This functionality is present in Skype for business. Why isn't this integrated in MS teams?

Please add this feature. We are looking to deploy a 3 monitor room system and would love to have 3 separate feeds (3 video, 2 video and 1 presentation, etc.)
Critical missing feature, particularly while so many must work from home and are on video calls many times per day collaborating with colleagues. Also, this is available on almost all of the video chat competition, notably Zoom.
Essential function. The Layout should be flexible. 2 Screens / undock Webcam / Webcam picture top/ Bottom...
I would love to be able to dissociate the PPT presentation on 1 screen, and see all participants on the other screen (not just the presenter).
This is possible when you are the presenter, but not when a simple participant.
The band of all participants being stuck at the bottom of the screen is a pain: it takes room on a small laptop screen.
Would like to have the possibility to "detach" the participants views, the same way than in Zoom or Webex

please give us this possibility !!
Absolutely needed! Zoom does this very well. I'm having difficulty driving people away from Zoom to Teams due to this deficiency.

This feature is absolutely needed as a core requirement
Please make this feature available. Thank you!
I will like to use in one monitor the presentation, meanwhile in the other one monitor keep an eye in all the participants.
Can we get an update from Microsoft on whether they plan to add this?
Teams is really not sufficient for use in a business context without it.

There are a few posts with this request - can they be merged somehow?

Yes please, thar Wold be Nice if we could Split the screens
Microsoft, PLEASE fix this. Every person I run across says Teams isn't a mature product because of issues like this. Why would this be available in Skype and not Teams is beyond me.
