Microsoft has announced that a new Large Gallery view, with the ability to see up to 49 participants in a meeting, is coming soon to Teams! Large Gallery will release as an optional (preview) feature that can be turned on at any time during a meeting. Large Gallery has a flexible design and will deliver a network-optimized client video experience that works on multiple device categories. During the preview, the Large Gallery experience will be available for desktop Teams client on both Windows & Mac, as well as for mobile Teams client (iOS, Android) users.
Just like in a physical classroom, students and educators will see up to 49 attendees in a 7×7 class meeting view.
Large Gallery will begin rolling out with the new pop-out meetings experience for desktop clients in early July, and full availability including mobile clients for iOS and Android is expected by by early September.
