    Thank you for your continued feedback, we have not forgotten about this ask. We have a feature on the backlog for popping out content, so you will be able to see one screen with the video gallery and one screen with the shared content. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    For the separate feature ask for full screen option, please upvote and comment at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/41277121

    ​For split screen camera and desktop, please upvote and comment at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/37118773

    Added my +1 for the true full screen mode (still not available in April 2021). Ability to have 1:1 screen content sharing without blank space is essential. Even a small zoom-out causes blur due to the resizing. It is not conducive to text and pixel-level sharing. Or any sharing, period.

    Strongly agreed; using latest Teams update. The latest update introduces a baffling mode called "full screen" but which still doesn't do full screen. Remarkably, the option to disable the "New experience" is also gone, fully removing the option to go fully full-screen.

    I don't know what kind of comparative analysis you do or don't do versus your competitors, but did you notice all of them provide a full screen option for 1:1 viewing of the shared content? At a big organization, we do a lot of content sharing, and it is always blurrier and smaller with Teams than any other competitor. That is the #1 feature in an app like this. Not for sound (business phones have had conferencing features for ages), not for video (most people have their cameras turned off). But for presentation sharing.

    Teams is the worst quality of the bunch by far because it doesn't let you view the presentation in full screen like all other competitors. It's insulting that the option was removed and replaced with a very deceptive and non-functional mode erroneously called "Full Screen" but which does not hide the toolbar at the top or show the content in 1:1 (pixel-to-pixel) in order for it to truly mirror the presenter's screen. Every other app does this, and Teams used to do this if you disabled New Experience and went Full Screen.

    This is a truly baffling misread of what basic functionality is needed.

    True full-screen. No bars. No overlays unless mouse is moved or screen is clicked or a button is pressed. Just 1:1 mirroring. It's not hard. Re-implement this please.
