  1. Show video for all people in Video meeting

    Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

    This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

    We are excited to announce large gallery view (7×7 videos) and Together mode are available to the public for desktop & mobile.

    Large Gallery is an optional feature and can be turned on at any time during the meeting. The new large gallery has a flexible design and will deliver a network-optimized client video experience that works on multiple device categories.

    For more information, please see: https://support.microsoft.com/office/using-video-in-microsoft-teams-3647fc29-7b92-4c26-8c2d-8a596904cdae?storagetype=stage#ID0EABAAA=Desktop

    Note: For the status of this feature for Government Clouds, please visit https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/926545/suggestions/40000762.

  2. View or export a list of users who attended a meeting

    Currently, there is no method of viewing a list of meeting attendees after a meeting has ended.

    Meeting organizers should be able to view or export a list of attendees, including enter and exit times, duration, etc.

  3. Introduce breakout room functionality

    We have a business requirement for breakout rooms with live events. The idea is pretty simple - we plan to use live events to host internal staff training webinars and as part of that, at times we will ask for small groups of people (typically 4-5) to go away into a breakout room and come back to the group with their answer/idea.

    We would like to see this functionality be introduced to Microsoft Teams for not only live events but also video calls. This would provide feature parity with pre-existing tools such as Zoom, WebEx and many more which would…

  5. Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

    When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

    This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

  6. Teams Meeting organizer can force mute audio for attendees

    Give meeting organizers the ability to force mute audio for all attendees in the meeting options page. Attendees should not be able to un-mute their audio with this option set.

  7. Disable chat temporarily during meetings

    Please allow meeting organizer to temporarily disable chat during a meeting.
    We often have people so focused on the chat, they don't pay any attention to the actual meeting.
    We'd love to be able to turn off chat at the beginning of the meeting, and then turn it back on at an appropriate point.

  9. Load picture as background instead of blur background in Teams video chat

    How about loading a picture as a defined background instead of just blur the background during a Teams video chat?

    So, for example, I could load an all black picture as the default background to keep the focus on me.

  10. Share system audio during meetings

    During meetings we need to be able to share an online video with team members. Videos could be in Stream or Youtube or Vimeo or others. And this includes sharing the video sound. Currently we use normal Teams screen sharing, but all team members on the call can either hear or see, the video/audio are always asynchronous.

  12. Polls and Forms in Meetings

    There have been several members on the Tech Community who have asked to have forms and polls in meetings. Currently can have notes, whiteboard, files etc. Snap polls were a part of SfB but having Microsoft Forms and Polls (whether via Polly or a native app) would be an improvement and a much more interactive meeting! Best, Chris

  14. Allow iPad/iOS users to change their background on a Teams call

    At the moment iPad/iOS users cannot change their background during a MS Teams call. It would be great if we get that functionality available for all users so we can use theme backgrounds during meetings.

  15. Lock the Video Spotlight

    In Skype for Business hosted meetings, there is a feature called "Lock the Video Spotlight" that allows you to choose a video feed that's displayed to all participants. This feature does not appear to be in the Teams client today, and it doesn't appear on the Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams Capabilities Roadmap.

    In some Teams meetings I want all my participants to just view one presenters video stream and not have the 4 participant split view. We need a way for the Teams meeting host to force their video to be prominent from the participants view.

    Slight correction. This is being flagged as completed as it is now in the public ring.
    Teams cloud meeting recording is now available world-wide as a Preview! Please try this feature out in your Teams meetings and let us know how we can improve it!

    Additional information.
    Admin doc is located at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/cloud-recording
    (Biggest thing is to be sure to check the pre-requisites.)

  17. Pop Out/Dedicated conference & meeting window for Teams Meeting

    If would be good to have a pop out dedicated window during conference call, meetings and screen sharing session like Skype for business.
    Currently it is very inconvenient to continue work on TEAMS without getting calls window minimized.

  18. Please enable share control in video meeting

    We used to be able to share control in video meeting so we can do remote support.

    Please include this feature in the future releases.

    This item was completed.

    From within a meeting the share control can be found at the dropdown at the top of the screen if you are currently sharing as well as the floating control box that exists when you are in a meeting.

    Thank you for all your feedback.

  19. Allow organizer to end meetings

    People should not have to manually leave meetings in order for them to end. We have had several people forget to manually leave meetings, and the channel continues to show that a meeting is in progress when in fact it has ended.

    The organizer of channel meetings should be able to 'end' meetings altogether instead of simply leaving the meeting space.

    As stated last week, based on the volume of recent feedback, we fast-tracked adding the ability for meeting organizers to end a meeting for all participants with the click of a button. This was released to the public ring today.

    In addition, the team has begun working on an option requiring everyone other than the meeting organizer to go thru the lobby. Once that feature is available, attendees will be placed in the lobby when rejoining the meeting. (Please see this UV item – https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38309602).

    Thank you,
    Alex & the Teams team

  20. Join Meeting Button

    When I schedule a meeting as a Skype Meeting it adds a "Join Meeting" button to the Outlook reminder that pops up. That button does not exist when I schedule a Teams Meeting. It should.

    Without that button I have to double click to go into the calendar item, locate the hyperlink to "Join Teams Meeting", click that, which opens my web browser, and then the web browser tries to launch the Teams app, but first asks me for confirmation, which requires another click. You've added several layers of unnecessary clicks which impede my ability to join a meeting.

    Just…
