We are updating a new Microsoft Teams Rooms meeting layout, designed to enhance hybrid meetings and provide in-room participants with greater context of what is happening across various aspects of the meeting. With front row, remote attendees are seen in the room at eye level and additional meeting experiences including chat, and a rostered view of participants with raised hands, are brought to the front of room screen. Users can select the front row layout from the layout chooser experience on the Teams Rooms console. It can also be set as the default layout or turned off altogether by device admins. Front row will be available for all Teams Rooms on Windows and across all display sizes.
This is rolling out on Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows.

[When this will happen:]
We will begin rollout late January 2022 and complete rollout by late February.
