Now in public preview: Paging on Video Gallery in Meetings



When you are in gallery view, and there are more videos than what can be shown at once on the meeting stage (the maximum number can vary depending on your device configuration, internet bandwidth and whether content is being shared), navigation controls will now appear to see additional videos of the attendees. You can use these controls to view more video participants.

Hi, since this made it into the release, is there a way to disable this paging feature. For me, it is a pure annoyance. 


Thanks for considering,

Hi @dwischnewski, thank you for your feedback about this feature. We strive to understand what are the high and lowlights of users with our features, and we would like to hear more about what you find annoying in it. Would you mind expanding on it? We will look into potential improvements.

@pablogracia Well, as the pager at the bottom is so unintrusive, I usually just miss it, not noticing other attendees. I preferred the previous way, where they where simply shown at the side with a simple circle and their initials.


Large gallery and other server created streams introduce such a large lag in the video stream, that it is completely irritating to use (mouth movement way behind the voices, and such, as well as having myself included).


I simply want the non-shown videos back in a short list at the right side, so I have a quick overview of who is attending.
