Some pilot users in my org are complaining that they cannot increase the font size.  There doesn't appear to be any setting presently to do this.  What is odd is that on UserVoice this is marked as completed; however it doesn't seem to work (at least on Windows).  Any ideas?

I can't find a way to increase font size in the app. Workaround for your users in the meantime: use the web client. Ctrl +/- works there.

Highlighted
Great workaround!!!
Highlighted

I have also had some users in my organization complain about the inability to modify the chat size.  Hopefully this feature will be added soon.

I was just looking for an option to increase the font size as well, because I want to display the Teams window on my laptop display as I work. The resolution of the laptop display is the same as the two monitors sitting on my desk (1920x1080), but the same font size just displays so much smaller on the laptop.
Highlighted
Unfortunately, the Ctrl +/- option works in the browser version of Teams, but it does not work in the Windows application, at least it does not in the release from this morning.
Highlighted

I just received a latest update. I wonder if this is the option:

Possibly, but I do not think that is the kind of option that the OP was referring to. I know it isn't what I was talking about. I want to be able to increase the size of the display font in the timeline and other places.
Highlighted

I agree.  In the Teams App, EVERYTHING is very small, and I do not see a way to increase the 'zoom' or anything that way (Ctrl + mouse wheel doesn't do anything).

It looks fine in the web client, however, that's not a good workaround because there are some features that you can only use in the App, not in the web (such as a video call, if you want to share your screen with someone real quick).

we have the same issue

This is exactly my situation too. My laptop screen is my third screen which is not only smaller, but a little farther away than my two primary screens. It is a good place to put things I want to reference but not focus on all the time, like Teams. But it's so hard to read with the tiny font that it's frustrating and I wind up pulling it onto another screen to have a conversation, then put it back. Allowing font size changes would be a pretty simple way of eliminating that problem.

Please we are waiting for this little option for increasing font.  A feature request as well as for the new Skype which they completely removed any customization including clear chats what is happening with all those lack of options et both apps ?

 

As a guess it's probably to make apps lightweight.

 

Anyway

With the new keyboard shortcuts you can now zoom in / out in the regular Teams client app. Ctrl = will zoom in, Ctrl - back out. Very useful for demos.

Highlighted

The Zoom in and Zoom out does not appear to work on the font in chat.

Highlighted
I confirm CTRL= or CTRL- doesn't work.
Highlighted

Normally ctrl + and ctrl - should work on a macbook it is cmd + and cmd - these are default browser shortcuts that also work in Teams as Teams is a Browser based product. If it does not work please check which browser you have and look for the shortcuts to zoom.

Highlighted
We aren't using the web browser version but the Windows version.
Highlighted
Also what you are referring to is zooming the entire browser. This is not desirable. What we want is an option to permanently increase the font size of chats only. Not the entire browser and working in the Windows version.

Hi it is on uservoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17201903-let-us-make-the-font-... so please vote for it. 

 

and it is already in development :)

I can confirm the the Control = has worked to enlarge the entire screen within Windows on my laptop. It has just drastically increased the quality of my work life!
