Allow ANYBODY to share their screen
Currently we have to use other services such as Google Hangout/Meet or other video conferencing apps to meet with people outside of our company, because MS Teams does not allow screen sharing for anonymous guests. Its a real pain ********** that Teams doesn't have this ability and most other services do. We meet with people outside of our company a lot so we frequently need to abandon MS Teams for these meetings.
Thank you for your continued feedback. Screen sharing on Chrome and Chromium-based Edge is fully supported. For more information, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#browsers.
For Safari and Firefox, only incoming screen sharing is currently supported. Safari outgoing screen sharing is on the backlog, and Firefox outgoing screen sharing is under review.

An an instructor, I need to be able to have students share their screen to help them WITHOUT making them a presenter and giving them too much control over the meeting.
As of Dec 15, 2020 when a chat is between a user on either latest Chrome or latest Edge (Chromium) Browser and another desktop Teams user, the screen sharing option does not appear on the browser user in 1:1 chat, but does appear on the Desktop client. Both users are on Windows 10.
While the MS comment from 2020-10-21 claims this works in Chrome, it does not work in Chrome on Mac - how should this be reported, is it tracked somewhere else?
For this option, you have to change in meeting policies.
Please tell me to share in teams being attendee
Is remote control also coming for web browsers?
Although being an organizer of Teams Meet, We are unable to share screen through Android device..n hence our students suffer a lot...
Pl immediately solve the issue..
This is very disturbing experience that one can not share his screen while using MS Teams for a Android device.Please enable the feature

Please enable this feature as additional option like webevent option while scheduling the session so that the required meetings can be set and so unnecessary network bandwidth/speed/traffic issues will be avoided.
Yeah... Chrome 84.0.4147.89 here and no workie with Chat in Teams. No option to share screen. What say you, Microsoft?

We currently use Chrome, but are still not able to see our client's screen when they attempt to share without having to download the software to their application.
Is it a requirement that both we and the client use Chrome so they can share their screen?
MS Teams really needs to improve this feature. Our sales team is really struggling with conducting meetings with existing and future customers. The customer attendees are not able to share their screen limiting productivity. This is a really basic functionality.
Please resolve this issue ASAP!
the inability to share screens reduces the value of Skype!
What I did is changing anonymous guest to moderator, Then, guest can share the screen, later I changed back guest to attendee and shared my screen again. It would be helpful multiple screen sharing at same time with presenter or moderator with permission to guest during meeting and request control to guest screen sharing.

I am a teacher and i use Teams for my lessons. During that lessons i use openboard, too. When i want to give the control of the openboard's pencil to my students, i see in the control bar (upside the screen) only few partecipants and not all. Why? Other question: in which way i can give the control to the partecipants not listed? I use the app of Teams. Thank you in advance. Tullio Aebischer (Italy)

cannot see the 'share screen' button in Team chat in Chomo.
How to fix it. Need to share the screen during chat!!!!!!
Can you screen share on microsoft teams via the web browser and not the app?
How do we share more than one screen desktop during a meeting?
My intention is that during the meeting mora than one person could show the screen.

Hello, yes please, this feature in Teams is essential since our guest partners, many of them also on O365, need to show us their screens, thus, they should be enabled as presenters if needed.
