Microsoft Teams will soon have a view switcher within meetings

© Windows Central Microosft Teams iOS and Surface

Switching between views in your Teams meetings is about to get a bit easier.

What you need to know

  • Microsoft Teams will soon have a view switcher, allowing people to quickly swap between Together mode, Focus mode, Gallery at top, and Full screen mode.
  • Currently, you have to click the ellipses menu to swap between these views.
  • The feature was first announced in March 2021 and could arrive this month.

A new feature for Microsoft Teams will make it easier to swap between different views during meetings. The upcoming view switcher will sit at the top bar of Teams meetings and allow people to swap between Together mode, Focus mode, Gallery at top, and Full screen mode.

Microsoft announced the view switcher for teams back in March 2021 at Ignite. Now, a recently updated entry in the Microsoft 365 roadmap states that the feature could arrive as soon as this month. Dates on the roadmap are always subject to change, so we may have to wait a bit longer to use the view switcher.

The roadmap entry reads:

The new view switcher in the top bar of a Teams meeting allows participants to control how they prefer to see the meeting content. Choose between Together mode, Focus, Gallery at top, and Full screen.

At the moment, Teams requires you to click on the ellipsis menu to find the different views within a meeting. The dedicated view switcher should make these options easier to find. This isn’t a massive change, but it creates a dedicated button for specific functionality.

An upcoming feature for Microsoft Teams will make controlling meeting content a bit simpler. The view switcher will let people quickly swap between Together mode, Focus mode, Gallery at top, and Full screen mode.
