View more than five video meeting participants simultaneously
Currently the max number of participants shown in the gallery in a Skype video meeting is five. Increase this number so that a larger group can see video of all participants. We regularly have meetings with 10-20 participants in Skype video. Would be great to see everyone simultaneously.

I’m now using Zoom because of Micro$oft’s lack of responsiveness to the customers’ needs.
As a teacher using Skype for Business during the pandemic, this would be wildly helpful! I’d like to maintain a sense of normalcy in my “classroom”, but I can’t if I can only see 4 of my students and the rest are blank tiles at the bottom of the screen... fix this soon please!
En effet, être capable de voir un plus grand nombre de participants serait fort apprécié. We also have meetings with more than 8 participants for our Skype's and being able to see all of them would be greatly appreciated
At the very least could they give a way to not show the non-video participants? Three of my five available participants are just a grey screen.
We support this proposal! We continually hold meetings of more than 5 participants and it is unfortunate not to be able to see each other together at the meeting.
This would require that Microsoft have an interface that isn't 5 little boxes in a row with 80% of the screen blank, something they seem incapable of implementing.
