Ability to swap content and gallery is coming back

Reference ID: MC275152 | Effective: August 16, 2021

MC275152 – This feature update will allow you, when in a Teams meeting and someone shares content, to now click on participant videos in gallery view to swap the content with gallery, effectively bringing videos to the center and content to the side or top.

Note: Unlike earlier, when Large Gallery was disabled when content was shared, you can now launch Large Gallery when somebody is sharing screen or other content.

You are also able to use the swap feature when using Together mode.

  • When you swapped the content with video gallery, click again on content to bring the content back to the center.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65943.

When this will happen:

Rollout will start in mid-August and complete by end-August.

How this will affect your organization:

All users will now be able to swap between shared content and people gallery.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
