  1. Use depth cameras for background blur

    Background blur is a very useful feature, and generally is effective - but not always.

    Many systems are now shipped with depth sensor cameras (eg Intel RealSense) which are typically used for Windows Hello facial recognition.

    Teams should use the depth sensing capability to significantly improve the backgroud blur feature (so it dosent have to rely simply on AI based image face detection)

  3. Acknowledge or thumbs up button for calls

    It would be great if there was a thumbs up button or something for use in video calls (especially with a lot of people). For example someone may as 'can everyone here me?' and people can press the thumbs up button instead of messaging in the chat or turning their mic on saying yes then turning it off again

  5. Premium call support for the Netherlands

    Premium call support isn't available in the Netherlands.
    Even 0900 numbers (premium calls without additional cost) are disabled.
    These are even used by the police to report incidents (non-emergency calls).

    Other countries support using credits in the tenant to pay for the additional costs.
    This makes it impossible for us to sell this in the Netherlands, because a lot of companies and government bodies use 0900/0909 numbers.

  7. dial in third party: no announcement whether he wants to participate in a conference call

    When I call to a person via Skype for Business (or Teams) and I dial a third person into the conversation, the 3rd person should not – immediately after taking the call – receive the announcement whether he wants to participate in a conference call, because this scares the 3rd person, who does not expect a conference call and does not know who is in the call, with the effect that he rejects the call.

  8. Dialpad in mobile by default

    On iOS (and likely Android) - after selecting the call tab at the bottom of the screen, you first see history and voicemail, and to dial a new number, you have to hit the tiny phone icon in the top right, and then you have to click the dialpad - too many taps to just dial a number.

  9. Block countries international calls

    It would be very handy if we could restrict the countries our users can dial on our international plan. We only work with companies in 4 other countries (India, Poland, Ireland, America) so we want to explicitly restrict them to just these countries

  10. Call a channel using the mobile app

    In the desktop app you can set up a call which is recorded in the channel and other people can see that it's happening. Currently on the mobile app you can only direct call another person or group of people

  12. How do you share more than one of your monitors when sharing 'screen' in Teams?

    Our Apps run on 2 screens. I did not find a way of sharing 2 monitors at once. Is there a way?

  15. Have Teams use my default sound settings

    So I'm on a call and Teams is simultaneously telling me that my speakers are muted while I'm struggling to find the volume controls because the call is extremely loud and it's not going through my plugged-in headphones.

    I finally found the sound settings in Teams to fix this, but seriously this was annoying. The default settings are there for a reason.

  16. Set a main camera screen when presenting

    I record our team meetings and want to be able to just show the main speaker - not a split screen for recording please. I don't need to see the participants who dial in on the main screen, icons will do

  20. Not able to do Audio or Video calls using corporate network

    Hi Team,

    We are using MS teams in our organization (dxc technology). Not able to do Audio or Video calls using corporate network. If I use home network it works fine. Please let us know what IP and port number should be excluded in corporate network to work it better.
