    Agreed. This is a terrible user interface message to have when someone simply has a message and is not truly out of office. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Causing a lot of confusion for our users. There should be NO mention of "are out of office" in this interface unless you specifically setup an out of office feature.

    I’m excited to announce that the new Large Gallery view, allowing users to see up to 49 participant in a meeting, has started rolling out! Large Gallery will release as an optional (preview) feature that can be turned on at any time during a meeting, and will be available in desktop Teams client on both Windows & Mac. We are pushing the updates via a cloud update. The minimum desktop build needed is 19173 or later. If you have this build you will see the new feature once the cloud update is pushed to you, over the coming weeks.

    You can read more about Large gallery view, Together mode, as well as other new meetings experiences here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/new-meeting-and-calling-experience-in-microsoft-teams/ba-p/1537581.

    For more details, check out the Roadmap item: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=65333.

    Thanks,
    Alex & the Teams team

    Perhaps Microsoft could give some details on what is being planned for this feature and a timeline so we can advise our users. If this feature is only going to support 9 video at a time like they announced at ignite, then it is still almost as poor a solution as current 4 video at a time. My users will still demand zoom with unlimited live video squares (40 per screen).

    And the timing matters too. We've been using Teams for a year now as a main solution and are fighting to hold off on zoom licenses. But users know what the benefit of Zoom is for video and demanding it more and more for larger meetings. Any timeline? And specs? Anything but vapor ware at this point?

    We continue to fight against Zoom users for this feature. We've heard 3x3 (9) video is coming. is there something more to share that it might be up to 49 video like Zoom?

    Also saw a post that being able to pin your video choices might be coming. that could help, but this is the #1 reason why our users are pushing back on teams as a meeting platform and demanding we keep Zoom around. Second reason: You can only have 2 number auto populate in the meeting invite (domestic and toll free). We need multiple numbers available by default and able to insert any number you want at time of schedule - again - just like ZOOM!!!!

    1000 votes and this is still in the backlog? Is Teams ever going to be capable of this function? Next version says it will have nine (9) video feeds live, that is still inadequate for our typical meetings. Still forced to use Zoom until this is fixed. Maybe MS doesn't think this is broken because they have Teams rooms all over their campus and don't understand the use case of how companies like to collaborate with live video of all attendees. Having the ability to toggle between all video, or focused video would be the ideal solution.

    This major feature limitation is the one main thing stopping us from being able to decommission Teams alternatives that we already use. Zoom.us must still be used for meetings with more than 4 video streams needed at one time (90% group meetings in our org need all videos live at same time to facilitate collaboration in our global setting). My leadership will not let me migrate to Teams only until this is available. (I was going to say "fixed" but MS doesn't seem to think it is broken, this was apparently by design to limit 4 video) It is frustrating that a collaboration tool doesn't support this very common use case. If I had one piece of advice for Microsoft on Teams voice/video it would be... Just make it work as well (features and functions, reliability) as Zoom.us!!!!!!!

    Teams not showing more than 4 video feeds is a massive deficit for the product. In a world of global telecommuting and remote workers, almost every meeting we conduct has more than 4 remote video users. Many users don't speak during a meeting, but seeing that they are engaged or watching their facial expressions is the most important part of their participation. Teams will not be good enough until it is on par with every feature that Zoom.us, GlobalMeet and WebEx have in their products. This 4 video feed limitation is just one of the many examples where Teams is lacking in functionality that the competition has nailed. It isn't sufficient for Teams to be good enough in these areas, it needs to be great for our users to accept it as an alternative to these other services.

    What a tragic “feature” this is that deleted messages still show up in activity feed. Major risk of confidential information being shared when someone realizes they screwed up and posted to wrong channel or posted to wrong person. Must be fixed.

    Stop the crop!! or give us the option. Panoramic cameras like the owl and Roundtable are worthless now. We get it, you want front of room cameras and Teams rooms. We all can;t afford those gold plated solutions. Make your system WORK with the options available. YOU Microsoft are the ones who brought the awesome Roundtable to the market with Skype and now it is worthless with Teams.

    Stop going backwards on features and make things work!

    Make this work like Zoom, and ready Talk. In a Ready Talk or zoom invite process, there is a pop up to select any of the available numbers your organization has authorized as you create the meeting invite. These can include local numbers, and toll free numbers. We have global calls with over 10 different locations and putting the local numbers into a meeting invite is a must for mobile only users who may not have internet access to locate "local numbers"

    The only painful work around for this in Teams right now is to Ctrl-click the "local Numbers" link ion your meeting, find the local or toll free number on the invite and copy and paste it into your invite before you send it. Are we still living in the 90's here Microsoft? Simple thing to implement, but probably at the top of page 5 in terms of features you plan to add.

    But these simple things make Teams o unusable and hated by our users who enjoy the simplicity and thoughtful features of the competitive meeting systems. So hard to get people to switch hapily when simple features just are not present in a new tool.

    This feature is available in the Teams admin center. Wouldn't it be nice if someone actually curated these suggestions and let you know that. If you are getting the URL for the icon and not the actual icon, you don't have the icon properly sized. It can only be 60 pixel by 130 pixels. very tiny. And the URL must be accessible from the public internet, not hosted on a local URL. And even though you use a tiny image, Teams will blow the image up and cause light pixilation. But hey, at least the feature is there.

    Once again, Teams is not on par with Skype for business or any other modern meeting system.

    The meeting invites look like garbage on an Iphone native calendar. AS mentioned in another comment, the meeting link should not have a space, and should be formatted in the standard

    +1-123-456-7890,,98765432# in a plain text format that has space between it and the rest of the meeting link garbage so that a mobile user can easily find the link and it is clearly labeled as a click to call. See the elegant and simply formatted Zoom invite attached. Looks great on iPhone native calendar too!! no massive complicated 200 character link with %20 and %23 characters in it. If you expect people to be using the Outlook Mobile app to see invites properly formatted, that is very short sighted. Our external users are often not Outlook users, and in our survey, 90% of our internal users just want to use the native device calendar for quick access to meeting joins.

    This is happening still. typing indicator continues again below their last message for about 2-3 seconds, after their last message even though they are not typing. very annoying. All our users are starting to complain. You see their last message, see they are still typing again. Wait.... wait.... typing indicator goes away... are they thinking? Backspacing? Is there more to come? Guess not. 5 to 10 seconds wasted every time until you finally realize this is just a bug and there is nothing more coming. You move on, sad and lonely that there was no more, hopes dashed that the next message might solve the mysteries of the universe. Like why Microsoft won't curate this feedback board anymore and provide status on these annoyances. Or even publish a new roadmap on what features and bugs we might expect to be fixed soon.

    We have a Microsoft branded Polycom Round table and it cuts and crops with no panorama view. MS -please fix these small but annoying problems. People have bet on MS with Skype for Business and now Teams and your lack of support for existing equipment is killing us.

    Hello - is this user voice feedback even being reviewed and curated anymore?
