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?

My need too. +1

I cant believe this functionality is not included with Team....step backwards from Sfb
This is absolutely absurd that this is not a feature. Lack of this feature makes presenting a real challenge......very disappointing
The best solution I’ve found is to use an iPad beside my laptop screen. The teams app can be run more easily than using the web-teams function.
I really hope windows will follow the others and update the teams app for pc.
+1 Where is this feature? All competitors can do it.
I teach 1st grade digitally and this is THE BIGGEST HEADACHE!!! I have to toggle back and forth and share/unshare my screen repeatedly to make sure kids are on task, to see who has a question, and if I've lost anyone during my lesson. This should be #1 priority for Teams to create a way that you can share your screen AND still see attendees. I wish my district would allow us to use Zoom because I would love to jump ship and use something more suited to my needs.
@Deleted User, please do share!

Really? @Deleted User, how is this possible?

This is possible now
For teachers doing distance learning it will be of great help if this feature is available. Google Meet, Zoom and I think WEBEX can all do this. So I don't see any reason why MS won't be able to do this and soon.

This would be extremely useful

As a third grade teacher using teams it will be extremely important for me to have the ability to see my students while I present. I used teams meetings in the spring and found that not seeing my students was a problem. I need to be able to see them while teaching. Please make this a high priority.
Guido Bicocca commented
That is a great feature that will be possible to see who is in the meeting and view the presentation.
Zoom has it!
Come on guys - it is Microsoft Teams for Windows, without the windows!
I thought there I still had not figured out this function - at least now i can stop searching

You said it Dan. Infact, from what I see, sharing multiple inputs or outputs of anything seems to be a problem with Teams. No multiple cameras, multiple desktops or multiple microphones (with an audio interface)! If you try to collaborate using anything slightely more sophisticated than a single monitor laptop you are not allowed to do it. It cannot even compare with Skype for Business, let alone Zoom or Webex. Oh, but if you purchase a C930e camera you can use a WHITEBOARD for content sharing, because we all have 1.8–2.7m whiteboards on our desks but we don't have multiple screens and projectors. I am confident the features will come one day far in the future, however, for now Teams is not ready to replace any other content sharing app available today, even Team's own neanderthal predecessor SfB. XD

multiple monitors is the norm today.
As a participant, I want to popout the shared content to a dedicated screen (so I can actually read it) and leave the rest of teams on another screen.
As a presenter, I want to share one screen and leave the teams app on another screen, but not minimized to a tiny window.

Teams is toast against Zoom without this feature. How am I supposed to have a good conversation with people if I can barely see them?
Mathias Raacke commented
I have three monitors. In addition to the original idea, I'd like to also use the third one (chat + participants list)

Webex does it. It's super useful.
