Why should you use Presenter Modes in your meetings?

By using Presenter Modes you can create a more engaging environment for your meeting/presentation. It lets you keep “face-to-face” element of a Teams meeting by keeping your camera feed near the content that you are sharing.

There are three different modes depending on your personal preference, so you can choose which is most suitable for your content and approach:

1. Standout*
