Message Summary

Updated May 07, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

When making a Live Presentation, presenters will soon be able to add a video feed to the presentation. This feature is available for presenters using the Microsoft Teams desktop app for both Windows and Mac.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 66587.

When this will happen

Rollout is mid-May (previously early May) through mid-June (previously late May). 

How this will affect your organization

Currently, when using a Teams desktop or mobile app, presenters first connect to the Teams call, share the presentation in PowerPoint for the web, and then select Present Live.

When using the Teams Desktop app, the presenter will have a new option, Standout mode. When a presenter selects Standout mode, participants will see the presenter’s video feed superimposed onto the foreground of the content being shared. This mode appears to meeting participants who are using the Teams desktop or mobile app as well as Teams on the web.
