I keep getting requests and some pressure to switch to Zoom for our video calling system. The most common reason is Zoom (and about everything else) allows you to "Pin" a participant's video. Similar to how screen sharing works, we would like to be able to select one video and show that full screen and the others as thumbnails below. IF this were implemented most of the cries for Zoom would go away.

I'll second this. This functionality exists within Skype for Business and is essential within Teams.

Yes, please, please add this feature to Teams. We are using this as our go to for all our meetings, we love it except for this feature not being available. Please add this Microsoft!!!!
