Can I have more than 4 windows showing during a Teams meeting?  I have a team of 8 currently so its a bit annoying that I can only see 4 of them.

They recently announced that they are raising the limit from 4 to 9. This is on its way in the near future!

Hope that helps!

@Christopher Hoard, I am struggling to find where in the blog it is mentioned that the video layout to expand from 4 to 9.  Could you help?  

@SanaeH I think @Christopher Hoard was referencing the comments of that post where there is discussion about 3x3 video being released soon.

@Christopher Hoard Any news on this?  I dont seem to know how to switch to 3x3 mode and we are now 7 months later.

@Christopher Hoard 

 

We just got all the announcements from MS Ignite 2019, and no mention of 3x3 video.  Is it possible to get an update on this feature release schedule?  This is the single greatest reason why my users won't fully adopt MS Teams meetings. We are a video heavy company (almost mandatory in meetings) and spread globally.  We like to see each other, do silent raise your hand votes or thumbs up etc.  When video is minimized to a picture, the experience is dismal.  And candidly, 3x3 is not sufficient... Zoom ALLOWS 49 VIDEO FEEDS in a meeting.  Let's go Microsoft!!  I've been in MANY Microsoft meetings, and I know most MS staff don't like to go on video, but the rest of the world is living the modern work style and adopting video... it would be nice if we could see each other in Teams!!!

(And FYI the second biggest adoption barrier is that there is no easy interface to insert additional dial in numbers, in-line to a meeting invite.  If you don't have an internet connection, you cannot find out what the additional dial in numbers for a meeting are, as they hidden behind the link and require browser access. Makes for impossible voice only calls when someone is traveling and they don't have access to dial in numbers.  Look at How Zoom does it.  Keep all your good stuff, but also Just be more like Zoom!!) 

Totally agree here. Biggest complaint on my team is that they can't see more than 4 people at time, would love this feature implemented sooner than later. We are heavy video users and will be switching to Zoom soon, which is unfortunate. @Migs 

They are currently working on it. See uservoices

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17010055-show-video-for-all-pe...

Nothing in the Microsoft 365 roadmap currently. Still going to be some time. The same is also true for custom backgrounds in Teams meetings which many people also want to see.

If I hear anything through any channels I will update this thread.

Best, Chris
Microsoft is really behind releasing a number of features. When you live demo 9x9 but can't release it in a year, then that's a problem.

Using Cisco Video conferencing software we can have as many as we desire, though to date we maxed out at 5x5 so as to maintain resolution on a 55" monitor. There were over 40 endpoints in that VTC (especially when the SG is having a townhall meeting)@Migs 

@Christopher Hoard  Near future. LOL. Near future is a bit longer when Microsoft is concerned!!

 

Any updates on these features? Also anyone know what the resolution is for video when you have multiple users on? And does teams handle say 50 users all On camera in a meeting?

Please up vote this request to send Microsoft the message that they really need to work on this feature: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17010055-show-video-for-all-pe...

Hi - 

is this feature coming any time soon?.. what is the point in a video conference with a team, if you can only see 4 of them? The recording also only records 4 people, so you have no idea what the others gesture when the meeting is on.

Zoom used to allow many more.

Perhaps increase it to 50?

@Christopher Hoard - it's almost a year now - and this still isn't here?

Covid19 has made this a matter of critical urgency.  Get this feature out!

I think Microsoft is falling behind and needs to clean house to hire better engineers

@trok79Yes, truly pathetic on their part. Our organization is going to switch to Zoom now - fed up waiting months/years for features from Microsoft.

@Christopher Hoard 

 

We already have a heavy investment in MS everything but have to consider purchasing another product just because of this inability to see all our meeting participants. Silver lining from COVID might have been that our users finally adopted O365 but now they are mainly complaining about this one thing.

Hi

They are working on it. I can't say anything further to that as I am under NDA. Keep voting this one up

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17010055-show-video-for-all-pe...

They are very aware of the issue, have a plan and are working on it
