The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.
I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!
The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity
There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.
Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.
Thank you for all the feedback and support!

Zooming is handy, but it is not a replacement for the ability to set a custom font size.
- zooming may lose useful screen real-estate as uninteresting parts of the UI are scaled
- zooming may affect navigation & may require zoom out or excessive scrolling to get to certain UI elements.
- zooming will probably need to be done per session, which is at best inconvenient.
Please add the ability to set a font size that's comfortable for the user. The ability to set different UI navigation & content font sizes would be great too (i.e. as Outlook can).Andy Boorh commented
Please allow the user to specify the size of the font in the Teams client to maximise accessibility and readability.
