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.
Screen sharing on Chrome and Chromium-based Edge is now supported. We also have released support for joining meetings from Safari, Firefox and IE browsers, with some limitations. For details, please see the following link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#browsers

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.

Please enable this feature in Teams
Please enable this feature in Teams. Have to use GoToMeeting, Skype, or TeamViewer for screen sharing outside of the organization.
Please fix so this works on Franz: https://meetfranz.com/
I need this for my work very important
As mentioned by others, this isn't actually fully supported, only partially. The only way you can start screen share is to start a group meeting.
Microsoft ask to their customers to move from Skype to Teams....
How to, without this kind of user experience?
Please allow guest to use and share their screen using web browser.
An update to my testing described below. I seem to be able to do voice and screensharing GROUP calls. If I try to call just one person I get the error that it's not supported in my browser.
So, this clearly isn't fully supported yet. When can I expect to be able to have voice and sharing when calling just one person?
I see the update that says screen sharing works in Chrome but there is no icon for screen sharing using Chrome on Windows or Linux. I'm using Chrome version 78 on both, and your link says version 72 and later should work. Do I have to do something to expose the button for screen sharing?
Also, while using Google Chrome version 78 I get this error message when trying to make a voice call I AM using Chrome. :(
"Try a different browser
This feature isn't available yet for your browser. Try the web app with Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, or switch to the desktop app."

What Robs said on Sept 30. Joined a meeting as guest from Edge and was not able to share screen. I was told I had to download the desktop app.
when will screen sharing in chrome be available in chat mode?

Can this page be updated with this news? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#browsers
Right now it says Edge doesn't have screen sharing enabled.
