Identify Active Speaker More Explicitly
When Teams meetings were only showing 2x2, the ability to identify the active speaker was very easy (only 4 faces to look at). Now with the growth to 3x3, and soon the possibility of 7x7, this will become more challenging.
When a speaker is actively speaking, it is not immediately evident who they are. Other systems have markers that help to ID speakers (Google Hangouts has a green bar under the speaker, Zoom has a green box around the speaker). Both systems also allow you to show the current active speaker in a 'Speaker Mode' opposed to 'Gallery' (Gallery being either 2x2, 3x3, or 7x7).
As Teams now allows for more faces to be seen, the need for this becomes more apparent.
I have found myself quite often searching for the speakers when in larger meetings.
