Please enable share control in video meeting
We used to be able to share control in video meeting so we can do remote support.
Please include this feature in the future releases.
This item was completed.
From within a meeting the share control can be found at the dropdown at the top of the screen if you are currently sharing as well as the floating control box that exists when you are in a meeting.
Thank you for all your feedback.

Hi there! This would indeed be a great feature for our organization; any chance there's an update on this release?

Great progress here! Thanks Teams team!
Just want to relay a few issues I have found:
• Full screen only lets remote access work within the original viewing area (you can't recent the bottom and edges of the screen when full screen
• Sometimes my small "s" key doesn't work
• Shift key + arrows don't seem to select text
• Alt+Tab and Windows + <number key> don't work for switching applications
This would be a big win for my team with the macOS client!
I use this feature often to communicate with my coworkers on Skype, and would really love for it to be made a feature on Teams as well.
Really would like to see this. Would be nice for remote support without the need for a video call.

Lookin forward to this, big need!
I want to be able to share my screen just like in Skype. How could you restrict this to just meeting? I guess you all just walk down the hallway and talk. This does not work for teams spread across the world. Walking would take years
Agree with most others here, How is this not a feature already? I just got off a Teams meeting with my CTO and his statement was something along the lines of "Well this isn't useful then". Kind of an important and expected feature.

Requesting control of a shared screen is heavily used by my production team in S4B. Not having this functionality in Teams has been a show stopper for us to completely make the switch.

Supposedly this was supposed to be enabled on Jan 10, 2018 (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Release-notes-for-Microsoft-Teams-d7092a6d-c896-424c-b362-a472d5f105de?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US); I'm not seeing it within Teams yet. Anyone else??
Need this to be usable.

how is this not even a thing already?
Please Mr. Microsoft sir...please include the features from previous implementations of an application in new versions. What the heck!
Do it, do it, do it, do it...............

Teams really needs to step up if it is going to replace Skype
Chad Ramsey commented
Its in skype for business, and if Teams is to replace skype for business, then this is a requirement.
This is very much needed on my team!
Raphy Abano commented
Yes, this feature would be most helpful to have.
Brandon Strawser commented
This would be an amazing feature that would make remote support requests so much simpler
John Kreger commented
I can't say again how important this is!!!
Lars Kemmann commented
I'll chime in here that we really need this for pair programming.
