Enable screen sharing without audio/video call
Enable an option to start a screen sharing session without starting a an audio.video call. This is a common use case in our organization.
UPDATE: I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect – you can share your entire desktop or a specific window directly from a private chat session, without starting audio or video. The mute microphone button is enabled so you are able to easily add audio by “unmuting”, but we realize this is causing confusion. We are working on further experience improvements.
Please feel free to respond to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are still seeing issues.

... and the possibility to pass control.
I would like a way to share my screen with one person in a chat. Skype has this ability.
Video set to OFF should be the default - not "ON", or I should be able to set it as my own default. People should be able to choose whether or not to turn on their camera when they join a meeting. Currently, it seems I have to join with video on and quickly turn it off, if I choose to (since I work from home, and I might be in my PJs).
Agreed - some of our group is using Teams inside a Windows VM, and the webcam doesn't pass through to the VM. We do use screen sharing a lot.
have the ability to share the desktop and use chat for communication when audio
