When we share any contend during Teams meeting, the incoming videos are displayed in the bottom right corner of meeting screen. Since the webcam is on the top middle of laptop / monitor, the video streaming looks bad when to focus on the incoming video box. is there a way to keep the incoming video layout at top - middle of the Teams meeting screen? Something similar to Webex. That will keep our face focus on the webcam and the conversations will be more live.

 

if this feature is not available in Teams, can Microsoft enable this change?

Hi @skumar_vs

Several uservoices open for this including this one

Would recommend you vote on it to push it up the agenda. Voting on it means you will be notified should Microsoft pick it up. This ask has been around a long time - particularly since Covid and the wide use of Zoom which also has attendees at the top in the centre to keep eyes focused on the camera which is typically inbuilt into the laptop. I agree with this and think there should at least be an option to move video off the bottom of the meeting stage and have an option to have it at the top. There should at least be customisable options. Maybe we'll see this with the incoming custom layouts. However, we should keep voting on it

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
