Teams screen sharing mouse pointer not visible from Linux client
When sharing the screen from a Windows client, the mouse pointer is visible, which allows the presenter to draw attention to particular things on screen.
When sharing the screen on Linux, the mouse pointer is not visible.
Teams is offered as an educational product. Not having having the mouse visible renders it virtually useless! This has been a problem from the start with a promise to fix it months ago.
I did not choose to use Teams - I am obliged to do so and am thoroughly disgusted with MS's so-called support. That it keeps crashing (and also crashing my computer with 16Gb of RAM) does not help. If MS can't be bothered to support Linux, then at least be honest enough to say so instead of pretending.

The Ismael Martinez version of Teams for Linux (Electron wrapped) does allow sharing your screen with the mouse visible. It has other issues (like viewing only one other Teams participant instead of 4 or now 9) but it is useful for screen sharing.
It's the same on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on Gnome
