  • Microsoft Teams will soon have an option for a Dynamic View within meetings.
  • The view will automatically optimize content and participants within the view of meetings.
  • The feature should roll out in March, though that date could change at any time.

Microsoft Teams will soon gain an option for a Dynamic View within meetings. The feature will allow people to share content alongside participants, which will come in handy while presenting PowerPoint presentations or other similar content. The feature is currently set to come out in March, but that's just a planned date for release and could change at any time (via The Verge).

You can already present video and other dynamic content on Microsoft Teams while having a webcam on, but the video stream of other participants is small. It appears that Dynamic View will automatically optimize to different presenting situations and have options for customizing the view. The new view allows people to pin presenters alongside content such as PowerPoint presentations and videos.

Microsoft details the upcoming feature in its Microsoft 365 road map:

Dynamic view automatically optimizes shared content and video participants in Teams meetings. New controls let you personalize the view to suit your preferences and needs, such as the ability to show shared content and specific participants side-by-side.

Dynamic View will also highlight active speakers and people who use the Teams hand raise feature.

As is the case with all features outlined in the Microsoft 365 roadmap, the rollout dates are subject to change.
