I spend 4-6 hours every day on Zoom and Google Meetings.  Unfortunately, I also spend 1 hour 1-2 times per month on Microsoft Teams meetings.   I routinely need to share my screen and this is impossibly slow whenever the dreaded Teams meeting occurs.  It works fine on Zoom and Google meetings, but never works on Teams.

 

  I am not using the installed app, and am running it from within Chrome.   My internet connection is not great, but that doesn't seem to be a problem with any other software or service - e.g. Zoom, Google Meetings, Webex, etc.     I don't have any problems viewing screens that others are sharing, so it's related to the upload bandwidth.  But if Zoom can figure out how to make the service work with limited bandwidth, why does Microsoft deliver such sh***y software?

 

I'm not going to install the app again.  I did that on my last macbook last year and our security team went ballistic.  It will have to run in the browser (Chrome - not IE or FF or Safari)

 

I kill almost all other software, disable the VPN and make sure that nobody else in the building is doing any streaming - and yet Teams still can't handle a simple screen share.   WTF?
