After a recent update, the "full-screen" option is missing from "Teams". Microsoft has included a "Focus" option which is not same as "full-screen".
@microsoft - "Focus" is not same as "full-screen". Why would you remove it? Software updates are supposed to make the experience better, not worse, no? Please bring the option for full-screen back. I am being forced to use ZOOM or Skype

I just realized that @microsft is not MICROSOFT. Why would you allow someone to choose "microsoft" as a user name, MICROSOFT?

@Seab375 Fully agree.
While I know MS couldn't wait forever to roll out Teams as the Skype for Business replacement, it was definitely MVP (minimum-viable... i.e. half baked) when it rolled out. I have been impressed with the pace of updates, but some updates (like this one) are taking a frustratingly long time. You can enter "focus mode" and "zoom out" the UI to get a full-screen-like experience, but it's a poor substitute.
Pop-out chat (imo) should have been part of the initial release, but it wasn't... and the currently handling of pop-out chat is extremely poor compared to Skype. I miss dozens of chats every day because I'm still in the mindset of looking for the flashing taskbar icon with a person's name on it. Instead, I get one Teams window with a person's name on it that isn't even the person who has pinged me. So instead I have to "pull" notifications (by going to my feed and checking every 15 minutes) instead of getting "push" notifications (flashing icons on the taskbar). HUGE step backwards.
They have a long way to go, and hopefully the updates will keep coming at a quick pace.

This is clearly resultant from MS developers never actually having used this in their real job.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a massive monitor to benefit from Focused mode alone, some of us are forced into the 12 inch laptop world, especially when considering current global working environments.
This is a complete oversight by then Microsoft Teams development team.
