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.

Not specific to the 4 (or 5) video streams, but in regards to JohnNeu's excellent comment on March 1, 2019
"Guests (people not in your Office 365 organization) cannot remote control."
Guests can be granted remote control, but you must enable the option: Go to https://admin.teams.microsoft.com > Meetings > Meeting policies > Global (Org-wide default) > Allow an external participant to give or request control
This option is Off by default, but you can enable it here or you can create a new policy with the option enabled.
