  1. make more video call party

    currently you can view 4 user when you start video call from group chat.
    by some reason it would be more cool if this app can view all parties who join the video confrence

    • Default video settings

      The automatic settings for video are not great on my LifeCam HD-3000. The Microsoft Camera app (Win 10) does a much better job at selecting appropriate settings. For example, in low light the Camera app appears to compensate, but in Teams I am barely visible. The feed appears to be higher quality in Camera too (but that might be a bandwidth thing).

      If you're not going to provide detailed settings, you need to pick a better set of defaults.

      • Answer incoming calls automatically

        This is a very convenient feature that is available in skype, it allows for setup of a kiosk station with minimal management effort.

        Features from skype.

        Answer incoming calls automatically
        * Start my video automatically when I am in a call

        As it can be invasive, skype also has a feature to Allow calls from... Anyone/people on my Contact list only

        As we dont have a contact list in Teams I would suggest that the feature could/would be scoped to Favorites

        • Support for phone numbers as hyperlinks

          It would be great if Teams could open when I click on phone numbers in the web browser or Windows apps. Right now, I can only choose Skype, Chrome, Skype for Business, etc.

          • Display Chat Window While in a Call

            Regularly I get into a call with someone & then have the need to send items via that chat.

            Instead of displaying the call window in full screen, it would be great to have that minimized & display the chat similar to Skype for Business.

            • Enable rewind in voicemail

              I love being able to get my voicemail in Teams, it even has voice to text transcriptions. Please tweak it though so when playing a voicemail you can rewind/scrub the audio recording. You can pause it but have to restart it if you want to hear some over.

              • Please have mute indicator stay visable, instead of auto- hiding. It is valuable to quickly identify if you are muted or not.

                • Enable sharing system sounds during screen-sharing

                  We've been using Skype so far to review projects internally, and liked to have the option to share system sounds while screen-sharing (some of our projects are videos with voiceovers).

                  Would it be possible to add the same functionality in Teams?

                  • Audio is inconsistent, even using the same devices/settings

                    We've been using the desktop application for Teams for several months now and use the video conferencing feature regularly. It seems like every other time we start a call, the audio does not come through on one end. This happens on multiple devices (that have worked previously) and we can't seem to resolve it by changing audio recording devices.

                    • voice settings

                      The "voice settings" menu from SFB app (Android and IOS) should be implemented in Teams app as well. There you can choose whether calls to cellphone should be VOIP, VOIP on WiFi only or Cellular. In the Scandinavian countries operator-based forking is common, and this setting improves the integration between the operator and Teams. There could also be a setting "VOIP for Teams calls, Cellphone for PSTN calls". Also, make these settings configurable from O365 admin portal and/or Powershell.

                      • Set the background on video

                        From twitter

                        "Could we select a background instead? I'd like to do my daily stand up pretending to be on a roller-coaster or flying a jet."

                        • Screen Sharing greyed out for external contacts

                          Looks like there is no way to share my screen with someone outside my organization. The dedicated button is just greyed out.

                          Teams shows the following message in the chat window: "... is outside your organization. Some Teams features won't be available"

                          • Teams meeting "Call Me" feature should disable computer audio

                            During a Teams meeting when using the Equivalent to S4B's "Call me At" feature, After using the "call me" function the audio and microphone on my client remain on. This causes a feedback loop since we're usually calling a polycom in the same room.

                            As an aside, it would be nice if there was list of "call me" numbers that we could build so we're not looking for phone numbers all the time

                              • When presenting in a Teams conference call - nothing else goes on Do Not Disturb like with Skype.

                                People on the call can then see emails and messages that come through while presenting. This is not an issue with Skype.

                                • Voice thin client

                                  When Microsoft starts pushing users to stop using Skype for Business and start using teams, I would like to have the option to "pop out" a thin client for the voice and presence. Sometimes I like to have different applications open and the thin skype for business client is perfect as it does not take up a lot of desktop real estate when it comes to communication or dialing like Teams does.

                                      • Visual feedback when I speak would be helpful

                                        However, when I speak, I do not see any feedback at all. This means that if my microphone cuts out, or I forget to un-mute myself, I have no idea that nobody can hear me. On the other hand, I may forget to mute my microphone while someone else is speaking, and accidentally inject…
