The most recent update to teams moved the controls to the top but seems to have removed the ability to show the meeting in full screen. We do a lot of code sharing and depend on the ability stretch to full screen to make the code easier to read.

Thank you for your quick response. I like the zoom feature but it feels a bit more clunky that viewing their screen at 1:1. It's a good work around but I would love for the full screen ability to return in the future.

Why on earth would Microsoft remove the full screen feature? It's really annoying not having it. Because of this alone I always end up doing skype meetings when people have to share desktops.

Focus is not a good substitute for full screen, now im finding it hard on my fairly small laptop screen to see what the people sharing, are sharing. Full screen is the best way, it almost doubles the visible area vs focus.... Why remove it ????@Steven Collier

Microsoft did mention this in the Message Centre Post about the new Meeting Experience
Know limitations: Meeting notes will launch to the main Teams client Support for full screen content viewing will be coming in the future Support for Invision Freehand Whiteboard will be coming in the future
So it will be coming in the future.
Like with many things the decision to ship without it will have been agonized over, say it would take another 3 months to build Full Screen into the new experience, would you rather not have pop out meetings for 3 months while waiting? You can always turn off the new experience for the next 2 months and stay with the existing Full Screen option.
If you want to tell them why it's important that this is sooner rather than later I would recommend doing so through UserVoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/

Please go to - Profile -> Settings -> General -> Under Application -> Disable [Turn ON new meeting experience] -> Restart Teams.
You can view the meetings in full screen.

Thanks for the TIP
I agree this is very missing - i can not see what is presented because of resolution differences. Can't believe this was taken away from us :(

Zoom feature is being reported as 'not satisfactory' by majority of our user community and users are starting to use other collaboration apps when they are required to do Screen sharing. We could like to see this feature reinstated ASAP .

@Steven Collier - I guess to answer the question, I would have preferred wait the extra time, whatever that would have been [3 months, 6 months, etc.]. Can't speak for others, but didn't see the pop out feature as critical.
As it is, I'll just disable the new experience as it's nearly impossible to view screen shares on my laptop without a full screen mode.

It is insane that MS Teams lacks a fullscreen mode when using separate windows for a meeting. I can't believe Intel Corp (my employer) bought into the MS Office 365. Every other new feature has 1 step forward, 2 steps back 20 or 30 years in intuitive user-experience and functionality.

@Dragoon82Microsoft may consider seeing those buttons is more important than seeing the meeting content in full screen.
