Recommended dimensions for canvas app embedded in Teams

Are there guidelines for sizing a canvas app that will be embedded in Teams?  I have a canvas app, created in 'Tablet layout' - Landscape orientation, 16:9 sizing - that I have now decided to embed in Teams.  I end up with an awkward tablet-sized rectangle, with dead space above and below.

 

What are the recommended/required settings for Screen size + orientation?  I have previously implemented a responsive layout in another app, so I can work on that aspect, would appreciate tips on setting screen size (do I set custom dimensions?) and any pointers on creating an embedded app that will display/reflow well in Teams (desktop/web app/mobile).  Primarily interested in desktop at the moment, but mobile will be needed as well.

Hi,

 

Typically 16:9 is what we recommend. But since tablets can come in all shapes and sizes that doesn't always work for every device. I would just play around with this a bit until it fits for the device you are using.
