  1. Microsoft teams client for smart TVs (Tizen, webOS, Android TV, etc)

    Now that we are all working from home due to COVID-19, I'd like to be able to run the Microsoft Teams app natively on my smart TV (Tizen OS) so I can connect an HD camera to the TV via USB and take video calls from my living room. I want to be able to do this without having to hook up my computer to my TV. At minimum be able to cast to my TV via Chromecast or similar platform.

  2. Sound level compression within Teams is now far to aggressive.

    When I started using Teams the sound was relaxed and of higher quality than Skype. But now Teams compress the microphone sound to the most extreme, making it very aggressive and unpleasant to listen to. This is regardless of device used. I want the voice nuances back. Today we get smacked in the face with hard compressed voices all day long. It also creates problems for AEC on most devices, generating artifacts and scratching effects. Our Skype Room Systems also suffer from this. Please turn down the compression level again. Please.

  3. Don’t turn off the camera on iPad in split screen

    When an iPad is used in split screen with Teams being one of the Apps, the camera turns off. It would be useful to allow iPad users to participate with video in a Teams call and have a second app open on the iPad for reference material at the same time.

  4. add option to be able to change the video call background BEFORE joining a ONE to ONE video call.

    In Team meetings, there is an option to change the video background right before joining a meeting but such option is not available for One on One video calls BEFORE making a video call (we can change the background during the call but not BEFORE the call). It is very handy to add this option to the Teams

  5. Manage cameras and microphones of students in Teams Education

    As a teacher I would like to be able to switch on and off the cameras and microphones of my students. Zoom as this possibility and it really helps to be sure the students will attend the lesson till the end of the lesson.

  7. surface headphones

    I just purchased the Surface Headphones and unfortunately, the touch pad functionality does not work well with Microsoft Teams. I don't want to switch to a "compatibility approved" Jabra product, since the comfort and features on Surface Headphones are great. Is there a timeline on when Microsoft Teams will be fully compatible with Surface Headphones? Things like, answering and declining calls? Muting functionality?

  9. allow camera selection on android (front/back; external webcam if connected from chromebooks)

    allow camera selection on android (front/back; external webcam if connected from chromebooks), for app, maybe browser mode if possible

    Android (especially chromebook) can support multiple cameras, and the chromebook camera app allows external webcams to be selected but apps like teams/skype assume that you will always use the front camera of the phone or the built in webcam of a chromebook (not always very high res). Would like ability to connect a better webcam (upto 1080x 60fps) to android device and use that instead

  10. Allow users to join a video call/ Chat from multiple devices just like you can do within a Teams Meeting.

    The ability to join a Teams Meeting from multiple devices is incredible. It allows the user to define their audio and video by device. Cool! This functionality however cannot be done from within a general video call/ Teams Chat. Please change this.

  11. Allow camera detection on Chromebooks

    Web-based teams on Chromebook seems to work great! The one thing it is missing is the ability to engage in a video chat. When i click on the video camera link in Teams, I am taken to a page prompting me to give access to the Mic and Camera. Unfortunately, the method that is being used does not interact with Chrome OS properly so you cant allow access to the camera.

  14. Filter on camera

    I use Teams and Zoom. I like that Zoom has a filter on the video/camera so it softens the image. We don't look so overworked :)

  15. Improve Audio & Video Quality

    There's a lot of improvement required in Microsoft Teams Video Quality. WHen it's compared with Zoom, MS-Teams quality is way behind and gives a basic video quality. It's audio quality is also not that good compare to other platforms.

  17. Enhance camera appearance

    Zoom has a feature to enhance camera appearance (soft focus on face) and to change the background with no green screen. I would switch over to Teams exclusively if you have those features. :-}

  18. Multi-channel Audio - USB interface compatibility

    Compatibility for multi-channel USB audio devices (e.g. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2) where there are multiple channels for audio input, only 1 channel appears as the main audio in Teams (e.g. microphone on channel 1, MP3 player on channel 2 - only the channel 1 microphone appears in Teams). Would like to have both audio inputs show up in Teams - e.g. control of background music while speaking through the microphone.

  19. Add feature to disable audio-enhancing features and echo cancellation (original sound)

    Some USB devices (especially speakerphones) has their own echo cancelling, AGC (automatic gain control) and noise reduction features and these might cause issues with similar features used in Teams.

    Zoom has a feature called "original audio" which disables the audio-enhancing features in Zoom.

  20. android bluetooth

    After terminating a phone call, Teams should release the Bluetooth audio device so that media players are able to resume playback.
