Microsoft will be increasing the number of participants shown on the stage from 4 to 9 and making it video optimized. Additionally, they are working on increasing the limit even further so that more participants can be viewed simultaneously.
For more than 9 participants, they will prioritize those with video on and show them on the stage. Participants with audio will be shown below the meeting stage. To provide a high audio and video quality experience, the layout logic will consider user bandwidth and alter the number of videos shown to provide the best meeting experience.
This update will be gradually rolled out to customers through May 2020.
Stay up to date on the latest status of Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 63341.
