Full screen view

Once you’ve joined a meeting, you’ll see the video feeds of the other participants in the Teams pane on the right side of the screen. Surface Hub can display up to four incoming video streams. To expand the incoming video to fill the entire screen—whether it’s all four video feeds, or just one—hit Full screen Full screen button at the bottom of the Teams pane.

Tap the same button again to exit full screen mode.

Note: You’re not able to share the screen when the Teams app is in full screen view.

Add someone to the meeting

To add someone to the meeting, hit Add people Add people to team button at the bottom of the Teams pane (it’s next to the full screen button) and start typing the person’s name in the text field. A list of options will appear as you type. When you see the person you’re looking for, tap their name to add them.

Switch cameras

The Surface Hub is equipped with two cameras: one on the right, and one on the left. The one on the right is enabled by default, but you can switch cameras to suit your needs.

Next to Add people, you’ll find Settings Settings button . Tap the Cameras menu and select Left or Right.

Share your screen

End the meeting

Hit Hang up in the call controls to end the meeting.
