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

    At the moment iPad/iOS/Android 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! The background replacement feature for iOS is currently being tested internally. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    The feature team is also working on adding background replacement support for Teams calls and meetings on Android. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

  5. Prepare meeting breakout rooms

    As a creator of a meeting I want to prepare my breakout rooms before the meeting gets started. So i already assigned people to rooms before the meeting is going to start.

    When the meeting is in progress i Only need to open the rooms.

    Next to that you want to send documents directly from the main room to the breakout rooms

  6. Teams meeting lobby - allow "selected people" to bypass lobby

    With the new "Only me" option for bypassing the lobby, this puts huge onus on organisers who might not normally expect to attend a meeting but where the meeting has a requirement to hold particpants int eh lobby.

    For example ...

    Person A sets up a MS Teams meeting that we will use to teach a random group of students about a topic. Person A sets the lobby to "only me" and invites person B as a "presenter". They also invite 100 random students.

    On the delivery day Person A arrives and admits person B from the lobby shortly before…

  8. Teams Meetings appear to take a lot of CPU (avg 32%)

    When running a Teams Meeting on my Surface Pro i7 (2017), my screen-sharing, video meeting used about 30-32% of my CPU constantly. This seems different than Skype for Business. My battery life went from 100% to 35% over the 2 hour meeting.

  10. Optimize Media (Video) during Screen Sharing

    Video should be optimized during screen sharing. Participants always received a "stopmotion-like" or dropped frames video.This greatly affect my teaching as I need to share video reference to my students for case study.
