Is it possible to be on a teams call from my mobile phone using the app while sharing the screen on my pc?

From what I can tell when I have tried to do that in the past, it will try to transfer the call to my pc which I do not have a headset for.  Please let me know if this is possible

I have done this without issues. Sometimes when I am remote I will have Teams call to my cell phone for audio. But I still can be in front of PC and share. It connects them together. @mercxi

@SarahFabiusso you have teams call your cell phone?  What if I am on the teams app on my cell phone

I do have app on phone, but I from my PC will join the meeting and when it asks for audio, I choose to call a number and put my cell phone in. This way I have the audio through my cell and still have full functionality of PC @mercxi

@SarahFabius We're trying to do the same thing, so I answered a Teams call on my phone then the caller wanted to share their desktop. I could see the desktop on my phone but wanted to see it on my desktop app.

@mercxi did you find a solution to this? Besides have to do a regular call by phone whilst sharing screen, which others seem to be suggesting.
A colleague of mine says if create a meeting, it seems to work then, if that is of any use to you.
But sometimes just want to discuss something quickly, not a formal meeting. But issue does seem to be when using Teams, if someone shares a screen with you on PC, and then calls you and you answer on the phone, the shared screen on pc is gone and all re-directs to your phone instead rather than dual, and trying to view engineer drawings on a tiny phone screen is not possible. Possibly OK for those that get their mobile/cell phone paid by their organisation and can be reimbursed for making regular phone calls. 
Only option currently seems to be is to get a headset ..

@koltregaskes-work I have this exact same issue. Joining a meeting is easy ....just have it call my cellphone and boom, shared screen appears on PC but call is through phone. But if someone calls me, it doesn't work. The app rings on my PC and phone and if I accept on the phone, I'm stuck viewing a spreadsheet on the tiny screen. MS Teams on PC has zero knowledge that I'm on the phone or that someone is sharing...why isn't there a space to click where you automatically see what your doing on the phone app?  So frustrating.  Also, that you can only view 4 people's cameras at a time.

@foxyengineer @koltregaskes-work  same issue here. One workaround I've found useful on android to make calling in-network work phones a bit easier is the use of the 'Nine' app, which saves company contacts to my phone line search.

 

I definitely think that having PC screenshare (no audio) + cell phone (audio) to use for a 1:1 or group chat is a key missing feature in teams

I have found that the only way to do this is to start a meeting, which you can do from the chat window after the chat is started.  Outside of that you are left with making a standard phone call and using teams to share screen.  A little inconvenient but not monumental.  It would be nicer to be able to have the audio and screen sharing split between pc and phone without starting a meeting.
