What you need to know
- Microsoft Teams will soon be supporting the large gallery view and Together mode on web.
- Views are currently only available in the Microsoft Teams app.
- Together mode and large gallery view should be rolled out in February 2021.
Microsoft Teams will soon be supporting the large gallery view and Together mode on the Internet in the Edge and Chrome browsers. Currently, you can use these features in the Microsoft Teams app, but in the near future the option will also appear on the Internet. Both views let you see dozens of people in a meeting at once.
Support for large gallery view and Together mode on the Internet is described in the Microsoft 365 roadmap. The dates on the route folder can always change, because they are only current plans and not dates that Microsoft has made a strong commitment to.
The large gallery view allows you to see up to 49 people in a 7 x 7 grid.
Together Mode places everyone inside your meeting in a virtual room, such as a lecture hall. It removes all the background that people have and then replaces it with the scene you have. Together Mode has recently been given a few scenes, including a coffee shop and a meeting room. Microsoft also recently shared some holiday scenes.
Adding support for Together mode and large gallery view should make it easier to see everyone at once on devices where people can’t or won’t download the Microsoft Teams app.
