New Teams client screen share not working

Copper Contributor



I ran into an issue with the new Teams client and screen sharing.
This doesn't show in Teams classic and web app.

When some one in a meeting shares the screen, the user only sees a blank white screen or just the users profile picture on a white screen. It is the same for screen share, whiteboard, PPT live and Excel live.

I have already:
- cleared the Teams cache

- checked for Teams updates

- completely removed Teams and installed it again

- checked for Windows updates

- checked for various driver updates, like display, graphics card, chipset, NIC, Wi-Fi.

- disabling IPv6 is not an option, because the ISP requires it.

- checked display settings like resolution and scale

- tried SFC/ scannow

- ran DISM CheckHealth /ScanHealth /RestoreHealth


Any ideas, what else could help?

Same issue here!  Super annoying!

I'm having the same issue, it gets fixed after resetting or reinstalling Teams, but happens again once someone shares their screen. Please fix this.

@MarkusS251 Same thing happening here, but today, the Classic Teams upon loading dims the screen and shows a screen FORCING me to switch to the New TEams on the spot or when I'm not using the app..
