In Microsoft Teams, presenters will soon have the new Presenter window at their disposal while screen sharing.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 100392.
With the new Presenter window, controls are located at the top, making active speakers’ faces clearly visible during screen sharing, and raise hand notifications are surfaced for improved awareness.
When this will happen
Preview: We will begin rolling out for preview in early January 2023 and expect to complete rollout in mid-January 2023.
Production and GCC: We will begin rolling out in early February 2023 and expect to complete rollout by late February 2023.
GCC-H: We will begin rolling out in late February 2023 and expect to complete rollout by mid-March 2023.
DoD: We will begin rolling out in early March 2023 and expect to complete rollout by mid-March 2023.
How this will affect your organization
The new presenter window will give more awareness of meeting activity while users are sharing screen or multitasking away from the main meeting window.
In the new presenter window, controls are docked at the top, which makes active speakers’ faces clearly visible. Raise hands and other important meeting notifications are surfaced for easier recognition.
Note: Presenter window updates are for desktop clients only.
What you need to do to prepare
There is no action required from you at this time to enable this feature. You may want to consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
