Hate to share bad news, but this request was declined by the feature team.
When you click the “Meet Now” button in a channel, you can click the little “Off” or “On” that appears in the window next to the word “Video”, and this will either enable or disable video before the call starts.
Please note we currently allow screensharing only when the video is enabled. If you would like to be able to screenshare without a video, please vote here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16936774-enable-screen-sharing-without-video-callKurt commented
Suphatra, this is not a good solution. Yes, you can turn it off for yourself when you click "Meet Now" within a conversation... But other people are forced to start a video call when joining. There needs to be a setting to disable by default or at least accept with only voice!
