TECH NEWS DESK:

During a Microsoft Teams meeting, users can currently pin the video feed of other participants to increase the size of the desired video on their own screen. This makes it always visible even when others are speaking.

 

Now, the company is planning to roll out a new feature that will help you to pin your own video on the stage in increased size. Microsoft says that this new feature will address a number of situations that the users face currently in Microsoft Teams.

According to Microsoft, the company is planning to roll out a new Teams feature on Windows and Mac desktop clients. The new feature will expand the ability for users to pin their own video on the stage as well as enable users to see their own video in an increased size on their screen.

 

This feature will solve the following issues that the users face currently:

  • No more overlaying of my video box and other participant's video
  • You will be able to see your own video on a bigger scale and adjust the video form
  • You will have a better view of oneself when presenting an object or using sign language
  • You will enjoy a balanced view of me and other participants - my video is larger, and no longer transmits an impression of "less importance"

 

 

When this will happen

  • Standard: We will begin rolling this out in early January and expect to complete rollout in early February.
  • GCC: We will begin rolling this out in late January and expect to complete rollout end of February.
  • GCC-H: We will begin rolling this out in mid-February and expect to complete rollout end of March.
  • DoD: We will begin rolling this out end of February and expect to complete rollout mid-March.

How this will affect your organization

This option provides the user with an ability to pin their own view and thereby themselves to the stage. Pinning is just for your own view, others will not see you pinned.

  • Go to the Me video menu - you can find it in the Me box, clicking on ...;
  • Select Pin for me. A pin next to your name appears and your video increases. If you no longer wish to be pinned, select Unpin for me.
  • You can pin or unpin yourself when clicking on the menu next to your name in roster too.
