This release of Multiple spotlights in Teams meetings will allow organizers and presenters to spotlight up to 7 participants simultaneously for everyone to see during meetings and will roll out across Microsoft Teams Desktop, and on the Web.
This feature will rollout from mid-April through the end of April.
How this will affect your organization
Users, when they are the meeting presenters or organizers, can now spotlight more participants in Team meetings than ever before. The spotlighting of selected participants will be maintained on their videos or avatars for everyone to see until turned off by the presenter or organizer.
Presenters/organizers can now:
Start spotlight on multiple participants by accessing their context menu from the participant roster or from the stage
Stop individual spotlights or stop all spotlights in bulk from the roster
Spotlight a maximum of 7 participants simultaneously in a meeting
