Hi, Microsoft 365 Insiders! We’re excited to share that Microsoft Teams Public Preview users can now use new zooming controls while viewing screenshare during Teams meetings.
Introducing zoom controls when viewing screenshare in Teams meetings
Previously, meeting participants could only zoom using pinch-to-zoom gesture on a trackpad or other shortcuts. Now, you can use newly available buttons to zoom in, zoom out, and restore the original size of the incoming screenshare.
How it works
While attending a meeting or call with an incoming screenshare, use buttons to zoom in, zoom out and restore the original size of the screenshare.
To be able to use this feature, users need to be members of the Teams Public Preview and use the Windows, macOS or web (Edge, Chrome) Teams client. Other meeting participants are not required to be members of the Teams Public Preview.
To enable your Teams client for the Public Preview, IT admins need to set an update policy that turns on Show preview features. Learn how at Public preview in Microsoft Teams.
- If the Follow Office Preview option is selected, it automatically enables Teams Public Preview features for any user enrolled in Office Current Channel (Preview). There are no more actions required by the end user.
- If the Enabled option is selected, the end user must also opt in to Teams public preview in their Teams app to get access to Teams Public Preview features.
- If the Forced option is selected, it automatically enables Teams Public Preview for the end user. There are no more actions required by the end user.
