Allow me to pin someone else's video full screen even when somebody is presenting.
I used to be able to pin someone's video full screen even when somebody was presenting. Now I no longer have that ability. Could you add it back?

I just came here looking for this same thing.
During a fully remote work from home environment we use Teams all the time not just for presentations, but for screen sharing, digital white boarding, etc. And so actually for the majority of our usage it's much better as a default setting for audience members to be able to flip back and forth between the video grid and the shared content and choose their own experience; exactly as humans do in real life switching between their notes, looking at the presenter, looking at the group, or the content being presented. It's only during a formal "presentation" that we'd potentially want to constrain all users to only view the content (and I think even this could be debated except for in extremely large formal presentations with 20+ participants).
Human non-verbal queues matter; especially during a fully digitized workforce. Forcing people to look at a static PowerPoint slide or screen while minimizing the human beings that we are working with or speaking on video is a real downgrade in an already difficult fully virtual environment. This will impact productivity, recall, and the need for human connectivity among teams that is so critical right now.
