Participants and Shared Presentation on separate monitors
Move the shared screen (with the presentation someone is sharing) to a separate monitor and keep the faces of the participants on the main screen.
This is really important especially as we start doing more hybrid working.
Share slides on one screen and have remote people on another screen.

Even just put them in separate windows (or add an option to separate the windows). That way the user can decide if they want them on different monitors or tiled with other apps on the same monitor.

This feature will have a huge positive impact during my company presentations.

This is a must have. I can no longer lipread people when a presentation is being shown as there is no way to hide the presentation. We used to be able to click on a person's video to enlarge and the presentation would switch to a small box. Right now, the person's videos are too small for lipreading.

This worked even in Skype for Business. I cannot understand why this feature is not implemented in teams.
A temporary work-around I am using is to dial in the Desktop Teams as well as Web Teams to have the presentation on one and the gallery of attendees in the other!

It is a must have for sure. Normally the cam is on the notebook but I work with more one or two big monitors and it should be a common feature to use a biggest screen to display the file to present and the notebook w/ the cam w/ the participants to look at them when it is needed. Zoom does that.
This is key. I have lost track of the times that I have heard people saying "please stop sharing so that we can see the people". I echo the comparison made by other people to Cisco systems. Now, we just need to enable in all our computers.

And the received Shared Screen should be possible to be REAL Fullscreen-Mode. No Menu, no other Icons or such.
Must have - Why can Zoom do this but not MS???
Yes, please add...pain not being able to see who is speaking while viewing the presentation.
Michael Wong commented
Please add this feature!
This is a must have

This would be so much easier and more effectiv if we could separate the shared presentation screen and the chat/video-screen
Participants of a call, using multiple screens, are currently not able to separate the shared and the video screen.

The request for this feature comes up very frequently in our internal calls. We all have multiple screens, and only the presenter can see everybody at a decent size. We sometimes have start a GotoMeeting session as well, with the same people, to allow both sharing and seeing all video's. If Microsoft builds this, this will be another step towards eliminating GotoMeeting.
That would be awesome.
HM Kraft commented
I would like to be able to see it on one screen as well as often I am restricted to only my laptop.
This would be fantastic.

Our organiszation is asking for this feature. Participants on one screen and the presentation on the second screen. The set-up is a copy of a set-up that you can get from Cisco videosystem. For us this would be a possibility to remove Cisco systems and use already payed license fees.
Our set-up is two (2) 55inch screens and a Cisco codec. One screen with presentation and one screen with participants. There is a need to be able to see the participants faces and expressions, not the stamp size picture. In this case the meeting is between two (2) locations so the participants screen can be large.
Of course there is a need of a seperate (good) webcam that are connected to one PC in the room at each place . Choosing that in settings, devices, ..... (Teams meeting)
