We are happy to announce that Microsoft Teams Give and Take Control is now generally available on Azure Virtual Desktop. Give and Take Control allows a meeting participant to control the presenter’s shared content during screensharing.
With Give and Take Control:
- A presenter can give control of the shared content to another meeting participant to help present, change a file, make modifications, or demonstrate something. Both will be in control of the sharing and the presenter can take back control anytime.
- A meeting participant can request control while another person is sharing. The presenter can approve or deny the request.
To use Microsoft Teams Give and Take Control, the minimum Windows Desktop Client version 1.2.2924 is required to enable the feature on Azure Virtual Desktop. Please refer to Teams Give and Take control of shared content on how to use this feature.
