Teams Large Gallery View (up to 49 participants)
July 8, 2020

We’re big fans of Microsoft Teams, even more so since we’ve all been working from home.

But the one thing that has been slightly frustrating is not being able to see more than 9 people on the screen during a video call. But not for much longer!

Teams is introducing Large Gallery View, allowing you to see up to 49 people on screen during a video call.

It automatically adapts the layout of participants in a Teams meeting into defined grids for optimal viewing.

Large Gallery is an optional view, that is turned off by default for each meeting, but you can switch in or out of Large Gallery view at any time by clicking the three dots in the top menu bar and choosing Gallery.

This new feature is being made available as a public preview feature. During the preview, the Large Gallery experience will be available for desktop Teams client (Windows, Mac) and mobile Teams client (iOS, Android) users.

What does this mean for me?
In order to take advantage of this new view, you will need to turn on the new multi-window meeting experience and must have 10 or more participants in an active meeting with video turned on.

When is this rolling out?
This will begin rolling out for desktop clients in early July and will aim to be  fully available for the Teams mobile app by the end of August.
