Spotlight Multiple Users in Microsoft Teams Meeting

What is new?


Microsoft Teams meeting organisers and presenters can now spotlight up to 7 participants simultaneously in a meeting.


What is spotlighting?


Spotlighting a video is like pinning it for everyone in the meeting. If you’re an organiser or a presenter, you can choose a participant’s video, including your own, to be highlighted as the main video that others see. This spotlight feature essentially locks the video feed of the chosen participant/s.


What are the benefits?


Spotlighting videos in Microsoft Teams meetings gives organisers and presenters the ability to place focus on specific participants. For example, you could spotlight a group of board members for a presentation, so everyone else knows exactly who is hosting that part of the meeting.





What is Microsoft Teams?


Microsoft Teams is the digital teamwork hub for modern businesses, facilitating collaboration with workspace chat, audio and video conferencing, shared file storage and application integration. Teams is part of the Microsoft 365 family and is accessible via desktop, mobile and web devices.
