Microsoft Teams users in a few months time will be able to try out the web conferencing service’s new Dynamic View option. At the moment, there’s no option in Teams to show shared content and meetings participants side-by-side. That is all changing though with the inbound Dynamic View feature, which was announced last summer.

Dynamic View is an AI-powered feature that dynamically optimises your view of shared content and meeting participants.

For instance, with Dynamic View meeting organisers can have the shared content as the focus of the screen, with thumbnail videos for meeting participants alongside it on the side.

Alternatively, specific meeting participants can be pinned next to this shared content so their video feed appears in a larger boxout and they feature prominently as well.

This is handy if certain members of your team are presenting something in a meeting, such as a report that they want to give a running commentary to.
