TEAMS not showing participants after joining a meeting

New Contributor

Hi All,


A colleague and I have had a specific problem regarding videos of participants. Whenever we join a meeting, TEAMS will only show the videos of participants that had joined the meeting before us but won't show any of those who join after us. We ruled out Internet as a problem as it works for everyone else in our office, we also are all up-to-date on the latest version.


Through some experimenting we discovered that a participant sharing their screen fixes the problem but depending on the type of meeting that might not be always possible. Is there a quick fix for this? Is this a general problem for some TEAMS users?


Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

@owel_1981 unfortunately no long-term solution.


If someone shares their screen or if you click on 'together mode' is fixes the issue at least for the call you are on.
