Spotlight is a really useful feature when in a Microsoft Teams meeting, it gives you the ability to switch the focus to a single person so their video becomes the main focus to the attendees in the meeting. This is something teachers have found incredibly useful when delivering live virtual lessons as it allows all eyes on the teacher. I’ve also seen this work brilliantly during meetings to give the main speaker a platform where the focus is on them.
Microsoft are updating this feature to allow organisers and presenters to spotlight up to 7 participants simultaneously for everyone to see during meetings and will roll out across Microsoft Teams Desktop, and on the web.
When will this happen?
This feature will rollout from mid-April through to the end of April. For more details check the Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 80425.
