Hi,

 

When will be possible to share screen on meetigs through browser? This is a must have feature! Now we can't move to Teams because we have lot's of meetings with external people with content sharing.

 

And about video on Chrome? How is it possible not be available on the most popular browser?

 

Any perspectives?

Currently working on it per uservoice

See response for confirmation they are working on browser support. No ETA yet unfortunately.

Hope that answers your question.

Best, Chris

Today guests joining your meeting via Chrome can view screen you share, if they want to share their screens with you then they will need to install the Teams app for Windows or Mac. No login is required, the desktop app acts as a meeting client, much like most other apps need so kind of install.

 

Support for more capabilities in browsers is in the roadmap, as indicated above.

The Chrome plugin is available now: Microsoft Teams Screen sharing
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/microsoft-teams-screen-sh/dhheiegalgcabbcobinipgmhepkkeidk

I don't know how long it has been available, but at lease since Dec 13, 2018. Unfortunately, the experience seems to be hit or miss. It worked for me, but doesn't work for two others.

The experience for me is when I click share screen in Teams web, I was prompted to install the plugin., I did so, and was able to share my screen. The experience when it failed is that when they click share screen, they are told screen share isn't supported in their browser (even though they were using Chrome), but they can install Teams desktop which will allow them to share their screen.

We haven't tracked down the "secret" to making this work for all Chrome users, but I am hopeful I will find it.

See here for the announcement at EC19 for enhancements to chrome meeting experience including full desktop sharing

Coming soon!

@Roy Faltesek it'll fix in time. This feature has been in Microsoft's testing cycles for a good while to ensure it reaches the quality mark for widespread deployment. If one of these accounts is in a tap ring it may have the feature. From what I can tell it hasn't started deployment outside tap yet.

@Ivo Fernandeslooks like this arrived June 10.

 

I haven't tested to see if there's a plug-in required.
