Currently we can't use video/webcam in Microsoft Teams when the client is running in WVD.

Will this be supported and if so when?

Hi Roeland, when you say "can't" I'm assuming you are referring to poor performance with video calling in un-optimized Teams on WVD. Teams optimizations (including media offload for teams calling) will not be in the WVD service GA, but are a fast-follow feature that we are working hard on and targeting to deliver not long after the WVD service GA. More details will come as we make progress with our internal quality validation. Thanks!

@Neil_Hinnant 
What do you mean with 'video calling in un-optimized Teams'

What I meant is not poor performance. At this moment redirection of webcam equipment isn't possible. 
A quick search learned me this feature isn't built yet but is on the radar. 

Fast-Follow future, how long can this roadmap be? 

@ro3lie, you need to turn on camera redirection. This is turned off by default for privacy reasons. You can do that by customizing your rdp properties and turning on the camerastoredirect:s:value property.
