Now in public preview: Presenter modes: Controls to move and resize presenter video



Presenter modes for screen and window sharing enable immersive presentations on Teams meetings merging video and content on the stage. Now, presenters can decide how they will be shown with respect to the content. In Standout, Reporter and Side-by side mode, they can now choose to appear on the left or right and adjust the video feed size to better fit for each type of presentation.

How to enable

New buttons have been added to the presenter modes preview window for changing the layout customization. The customizations will remain in case the presenter closes the window. You can use this new feature by:

  • Jump on any meeting or start a meeting by going into the calendar and selecting Meet Now. > Open the Share Tray and share a Window or Screen. > Select a presenter mode: Standout, Reporter or Side-by-Side. > Use the buttons on the toolbar of the smaller preview window that pops-up to adjust your video size and position.


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, both the sharers of presenter modes and receivers have to be in Public Preview.
