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 vote here. Dual monitor concept with the detached/pop-up box for chat/participant
Upvote for using 2 monitors during a meeting.

I am using a ultrade wide screen and would love to split the presentation away from the webcam feeds/faces of all participating, as my screen can easily handle both.
However, it doesn't seem Microsoft is giving this alot of attention. There are alot of different requests that basically want the same thing. (and none of those i found in 5 minutes have admin replies)
All alternatives of Teams have ability to use 2 monitors. It is really must have feature and BIG disadvantage for the Teams

This functionality is present AND easy to use in ZOOM. This is critical for education, since we need to easily see our students while in virtual classes.
Really, Teams should get easier to use especially for education users.
We are a few that use webex because they have that basic feature. Participants on TEAMS only see very small image of the other participants, with their second screen useless.
It is important to fix it soon. Virtual work demands it.

Please add this soon. Having pictures of other meeting participants on the same screen as shared presentations makes it hard to see any content that is not in large font.
Looking forward to this feature!
This would be a improvemnet

We finally had a large Teams meeting within our IT department yesterday and realized the experience pales in comparison to Zoom/RingCentral. Please allow us the ability to view a presentation in one window and view the gallery in another window!

This would be a great feature. Please add this soon!

Also, seeing all participants in one screen and the presentation on another would be useful.
I see this is now possible if I'm the presenter (I can put the gallery on my second monitor and the presentation on my main one) but it's still not if someone else is presenting
