On Mint 20, I get a button for screen share, but it doesn't do anything. No one can see my screen. Although I'd prefer app window sharing, at least whole-screen sharing is a must.

Wayland screen sharing, and just general Linux support. There has not been a new release in months, my teams client regularly logs me off, I have to restart it because it gets VERY laggy (video at 1fps -- even just typing in a chat can suddenly become PAINFULLY slow for no clear reason).
Give Linux some love!
You can add proper memory management - always been a weakness at MS.

Screen sharing crashes on up-to-date Linux that use Wayland as a replacement for X.

Microsoft Teams crashes when sharing screen under Linux Ubuntu 18.04.4 TLS
I did 3 months online course successfully with MS Team on Ubuntu, but now it crashes when trying to share screen.
The mouse pointer has never worked.

"Shifts" app also doesn't show in the Linux client. Only on the Web and Windows.

Desktop Screen sharing only works partly on Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS
Other meeting partitions do not see my mouse Pointer or Text Cursor.
Sharing a single Application does not work at all.
Pass throug Audio is also not working! Sorry this is rubbish.

Screen sharing is limited here - Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic GNOME3. I can share my screen, but cannot view others' screens, especially during meetings.

Screen sharing works for me but only in a call . I dont have the option to just share screen without the call

I am able to share the screen with Ubuntu 16.04 but not the mouse position that is very interesting. I am using Teams for remote teaching and can not point things on "blackboard".
Screen sharing does not work on Wayland. Teams crashes using screen share on wayland!
In Ubuntu you can enter Unicode characters by typing Shift+Ctrl+U followed by the unicode followed by enter. For example Shift+Ctrl+U 0161 Return gives you š - however this doesn't work in the Teams app.
As of linux client 1.3.00.958 on Debian with Gnome, attempting an outbound screen share results in in the client crashing.
Am I the only one who cannot see shifts app in linux client desktop? I think this should also be supported.
Just to let you know, those things are working in https://github.com/IsmaelMartinez/teams-for-linux
Give it a go if you wish and report any issues in github.

Pretty much everyone in my research team use Linux machines and I can't recommend them to use teams instead of slack just for this reason. Please work on developing a linux client or enable screen sharing capabilities in the browser!!
Google has had this many years. It is time for Microsoft to get out of the mode that a thick client is needed.
