I am a newbies to Microsoft Teams,
I was wondering why Microsoft limited only to 4 person in 1 video calls but I am still can hear the voice for the additional person. So far after trying Teams for a weeks, there is a lot more features should be added by Microsoft to at least meet the users requirement or comparing with SFB for launch the products. Anybody has a similar issue with me?

Thanks for this. I agree with you and so at the time it may not be suitable for the scenario you have in mind. I have looked through the User Voice and there is a request for the limit to be raised
I voted! I would recommend for you to vote and drive as many people to this as possible. The more people who vote the more Microsoft will likely look at it.
Hope I have answered your question, if I have, please 'like' the response and set it as the solution to your question. I hope to see you more in the community and look forward to answering more of your questions.

Would rather see more than 4 participants in video.

Hi @Christopher Hoard - a clarification if possible –
Is there any way to choose which 4 people are shown? For example – a coworker of mine said she was on video today but only her phone number was showing. Her video connection AB showed on the bottom but we couldn’t get her to be viewed even when she spoke.
Thanks so much.

also have a team member experiencing the 'only seeing 1 person at a time' issue. No solution, but another report of this issue at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/can-only-see-1-person-in-a-call-not-4/m-p/123...

@Christopher Hoard thanks for the feedback. Now that the entire world is actively judging meeting services, perhaps it's time to clarify the 4-concurrent video "limit". What I know:
Can you or the Teams team vouch or embellish @Christopher Hoard ? Any insights from UX studies on this?
IMHO, having more than a handful of large video windows is distracting. We've used other systems and when others stare at the more passive participants they tend to not pay attention. Then we end up turning the feature off.

@Jeff Border Thanks dude! Very helpful to set my small company straight tonight, after they were bitching and wanting to go to Zoom because it "showed more windows". While only three or 16 were casting...lol.

@Angus McPherson Yep, I use pin to keep the target speaker showing on for my display, but this does not replicate to the other participants connecting from their end of Teams. They need to perform the same pin function too and often don't know how/unwilling to learn.
My work around at the moment to force pin the speaker on my display in full screen mode and then use ScreenShare to force all viewers to see my Pinned views.

@Treemad Totally agree with this. The key here is choice and user customization. Users should be able to customize how they want their experience, not MS dictating what our experience should be.
