Now in public preview: Pin your own video in Teams meetings



Currently, users can pin video feeds to increase the size of the desired video on their own screen. This new feature update will expand the ability for users to pin their own video on the stage as well as enable users to see their own video in an increased size on their screen.




You can use this new feature to pin your own video, making the preview bigger, equal to other videos in the meeting gallery. This allows you to focus on how your video comes across to other participants during meetings. The bigger view is visible just for you.


Flighting status

Available to everyone in Public Preview channel.



How to enable

This option provides the user with an ability to pin their own view and thereby themselves to the stage. Pinning is just for your own view, others will not see you pinned.

  • Join a meeting and go to the Me video menu - you can find it in the Me box where you see your video. Click on ... to open the menu.
  • Select Pin for me. A pin next to your name appears and your video increases. If you no longer wish to be pinned, select Unpin for me.

  • You can pin or unpin yourself when clicking on the menu next to your name in roster too.

Note 1: If you need information about enabling the public preview itself, see “Enable the public preview for Teams” below.

Note 2: To be able to use this feature, users joining a meeting need to be in Public Preview. Users not in Public Preview will still not be able to use this feature.

Hello Kaushal Mehta (LYNC)  

I see it's possible to pin more than one participant. Do you have details what the limit is? Also, I think some users can have a "stalking feeling" if everybody can pin the video from someone. Is there an option to prevent other users from pinning my video?
