Hi, 

 

Just wondering if it would be possible to enable people's names to show in their window during a video call? Something like the lady in the middle has in the image I attached.

Thanks!

This isn't currently a feature, if it is one that you would like to see added please add it as a suggestion at 0he official UserVoice - https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com

 

As an alternative, you may want to use the Attendees list. In it, the user(s) speaking are highlighted.

@Brad Groux thanks so much! the meeting participants list is a great feature! I have added the idea to uservoice for the name to appear on screen. 

@Brad Groux Wait, I have the opposite problem - how do I turn the names OFF? I'm in a meeting with 20 participants, all of whom I know, and it is annoying that I see their names in each video pane. It's cluttered and redundant. How do I turn OFF the display of names?
