share screen from computer even when using phone for a call
If someone calls through Teams on my phone, but then need to join the call from the computer there is no way to transfer. That alone is an issue, but the big one is if I need to share my screen. The only option seems to be to hang up the call from the phone and call again, just to share my screen. I should be able to share my screen at any time, without a call. What if I'm not using teams on a phone call, then I don't want to call with teams at all. Lots of our desktops don't have mics attached so people can't use the computer for a call.
I have the exact same issue as well. Currently, I use Skype for screen sharing while I'm on a 1:1 call with someone else on the Teams app on my phone. In meetings it works seamlessly, so I don't understand why it doesn't work the same way in just a normal call. With Skype being taken away, I NEED this functionality in Teams.

This is important for 2 reasons: 1. Bandwidth preservation in these trying times.
2. Accessibility for people with hearing issues.

I take all my calls on my Phone primarily as Microsoft Teams and Apple air-pods doesn't seem that compatible. A feature that will allow us to take calls on mobile phones with a facility to share contents (presentation etc.) on laptop is absolutely needed.

As a workaround in skype I start a group chat. Still didn’t find how on MS Teams
