MC275152: Microsoft Teams: Dynamic view to swap content and gallery is coming back

This feature update will allow you, when in a Teams meeting and someone shares content, to now click on participant videos in gallery view to swap the content with gallery, effectively bringing videos to the center and content to the side or top. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65943.

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.
