screen sharing on wayland
Screen sharing on wayland is not yet supported. The teams app crashes and restarts.
See this issue on the electron app https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/23063
Please add Wayland screen sharing support. A much needed feature!
Looking forward to seeing this fixed. I would love it if we at least knew whether or not the MS team is working on this actively. Thanks!
VSCode (also from Microsoft) already supports Wayland natively with the latest Beta release. I wonder what is stopping Microsoft from upgrading their Electron version on Microsoft Teams... Really a shame that it takes sooo long

When could we expect MS Teams to be built on top of Electron 12.x in order to support Wayland ?
Is there any place we could check MS Teams dev timeline ?

The latest information is that the support is already there on the side of Electron: https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/29115#issuecomment-840071961
However, Teams needs to be built with the latest version of Electron which is 12.x.y.
Currently, it is built with Electron 8.5.5 which is no longer supported: https://www.electronjs.org/docs/tutorial/support#currently-supported-versions .
Please, use the last version of Electron so to enable screen sharing on Wayland.

Please, add support for Wayland, this is very important.
Please Add support for Wayland , and individual window sharing (I think I could do it before, not sure though)
Please fix this. Super annoying not being able to share the screen.

Please support this. This is the only thing holding me on Xorg atm, but the experience overall is so much better on Wayland. Furthermore, Wayland is becoming the default everywhere. People will run into this issue a LOT

Wayland is getting on more and more distributions. (Defaulto on Fedora).

Ubuntu 21.04 uses Wayland by default. To have Teams working, one must switch to Xorg by going to the login screen, clicking on the settings button at the bottom right and choosing Xorg.
However, it would be nice if MS Teams supported Wayland.

MS Teams screen sharing during call doesn't work on my recent Ubuntu 21.04 installation.
Please, please fix this.
Now that Electron 12 was officially released, you should update the Linux Microsoft Teams build, so that users finally can use screen sharing on Wayland.
Ubuntu 21.04 will use Wayland by default, so if you don't update soon, there will be a lot of people complaining.
I can screen share in Fedora Wayland gnome when using the Teams browser client in Chrome beta.
