    I’m excited to announce that a new Large Gallery view, with the ability to see up to 49 participant in a meeting, is coming soon to Teams! Large Gallery will release as an optional (preview) feature that can be turned on at any time during a meeting. Large Gallery has a flexible design and will deliver a network-optimized client video experience that works on multiple device categories. During the preview, the Large Gallery experience will be available for desktop Teams client on both Windows & Mac, as well as for mobile Teams client (iOS, Android) users.

    You can read more about Large gallery view, as well as the new Together mode feature, here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/what-s-new-in-microsoft-teams-june-2020/ba-p/1489142.

    Large Gallery will begin rolling out with the new pop-out meetings experience for desktop clients in early July, and we are targeting full availability including mobile clients for iOS and Android by early September.

    To add to the frustration, and while I applaud the additon of 9 panes, it seems even more a confusing mess now. I am currently training our school to migrate to Teams from Zoom. This is hands down the biggest frustration for our teachers. After this latest update, which gives priority to video over audio, unexpected things happen in a meeting. If a teacher has, say, 6 students online and 5 turn their webcams off, the one who leaves theirs on gets all of the screen real estate. If they're sharing their screens, that individual is highlighted for all to see. The organizer is forced to have to get into pinning panes while sharing their desktop in order to force attendees to stay put in the kind of grid that Zoom just does by default. Because pinning is a client side feature that all attendees would have to do to replicate, it can only be done over a shared desktop if an organizer wants all users to see the same thing but that then introduces a delay.

    We tried to run a Town-hall style meeting as a scheduled meeting yesterday because live events limits presenters to a single pane (and we had two that needed a side by side view). As attendees came online, they would show up in the pane and we spent the entire meeting messaging people to turn off their webcams so that Teams would de-prioritize it and they would remain icons.

    To say that this is a mess is putting it mildly.

    As you may know, the new Large Gallery view, with the ability to see up to 49 participant in a meeting, is coming soon to Teams! This will allow you to see all of your students within a similar class size. The ability to further adjust the layout of the video is in the works and planned to come later.
