We are happy to announce that Microsoft Teams application window sharing is now generally available on Azure Virtual Desktop for Windows users.  

 

With application window sharing, users can now choose a specific window to share from their desktop screen. Previously, users could only share their full desktop windows or a Microsoft PowerPoint Live presentation. Application window sharing will help reduce the risk of displaying sensitive content during meetings/calls and keep meetings focused by directing participants to specified content.
