Present your screen content and webcam feed side by side, on top of each other, or however you want, in your Teams meeting with this handy trick.

Today we’re going to cover a little workaround—this probably qualifies as a life hack, actually—for presenting both your face and shared content—like a slideshow, your browser, a file—at the same time during a Microsoft Teams meeting. Basically, you can present like a newscaster in a meeting and it requires no additional software or skills to do it. It can really amp up your presentation, class, meeting, whatever.
For a video version of this post, press play below. You probably want to watch the video. I go through a bunch of demos on how to actually do this and discuss a bunch of the nuances to maximize the professional look, which may help make it all make more sense.
Microsoft Teams has announced some major changes and improvements when it comes to how people’s faces and content displays during meetings, but there’s still a big need—at least in my opinion—for sharing your face with content in a configurable side-by-side way (and there will remain that need even with the announced updates). Think of a newscaster with a graphic above their shoulder or a gamer live-streaming their play with their face in the corner.
I see this having a big impact on meetings where there is one or only a few main presenters, not really for meetings where many people discuss or brainstorm back and forth. It’s also fantastic if you’re a teacher presenting slides or a white board in your browser and you want to show your face to keep students more engaged.
