Customize Video Screens layout
It would be great to have the ability to customize the layout when in a Teams call. Specifically, I would like to be able to move all the participant video screens across the bottom to the top of the screen...with the content being displayed under all the participant video screens.

Yes, please implement this feature. All of our Notebooks cams or stationary webcams are at the top of the screen. When doing our Teammetings where a protocol is shown to everyone constantly via Screenshare, it looks like we're sleeping in front of the screen when looking to the facecams while someone is speaking.

You need to implement this ASAP. Many of us with large screens have our camera ontop, when we look at the users in the bottom right it looks like we are not paying attention to the speaker. In zoom and google we can move the attendees windows. This is a huge Microsoft fail.
Horrible user experience with having to look at the bottom of the screen all the time to see your teammates.
I should be able to move participants to the side as Webex does. During sharing we have a lot of blank space on left and right but the user videos appear at the bottom. Move those to the side, that will allow better viewing of the content.
Agree! I’ve been trying to record a training and I keep looking down when the other speaker talks because I want to look at them, but then I am making poor eye contact. If I could move my video, or all of the videos it would be so helpful.

I couldn't agree more. Helps with eye contact while on a video call. Thanks for the consideration!

YES! This is important and to help create connection...prioritize this to help companies that have quickly moved to work from home.

This is super important. I'm surprised it doesn't have more votes. In all the "best practices" for video conferencing it says to look directly into your camera. Most cameras are at the top of the screen, so you can't look at the others in your call at the same time as you have your line of vision in the right spot. Skype allows this and so does Webex. It was the first thing that I noticed when I started doing video calls - I can't look at the other people when we share content because they are at the bottom of the screen.
This is so important for user experience (UX!) Everyone looks like they are looking down because their camera is on top of their monitor. Have the ability to move the videos to the top of the screen will open everyone's eyes!
