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!

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!
For those anxiously awaiting this, but are disappointed with our inability to get it, here's a workaround. Use Chrome (sadly, Edge doesn't quit provide the same app-like experience of pinned sites) to navigate to teams.microsoft.com. Once there and logged in, tap the menu button, then More tools, and finally Create shortcut. This will save it to your desktop as a windowed "app". Now run Teams from the Chrome shortcut and you can use the standard browser zoom feature to resize text. Can't say if there are limitations with using Teams in this manner or not.Jamie commented
How does one get this new zoom feature? I have "You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.18052 (64-bit). It was last updated on 7/11/18." This is so frustrating, especially with a mix of high DPI Surface devices and full HD monitors. Running the standalone app on latest Windows 10 1803 build. Please release this feature to all users!
