I don't think upgrading is the answer. ... Teams is competing with Zoom, WebEx, etc. and they all have this feature. I've used most of them and Zoom's capability is pretty good. I use it a lot when demoing software or training. This should 100% be core capability in Teams. Period. You're not a credible provider of web conferencing / online collaboration without this feature.

My company is considering Zoom and Teams. We are a microsoft shop.....but the annotation feature is causing me to lean toward Zoom.....That's how useful it is....I literally use it in almost every single meeting I have.

Lucky our company has decided to prolong Zoom contract. As Teams is not at all fitting requirements for engineering groups.

@Tim_Overbeck It's on the roadmap for June

Annotation is now available. My team just used it in our daily "standup" meeting.

Not sure posting here is the right place, but maybe someone can help out, since I am banging my head on this.
Happy to see the annotation pen icon when I share screens. However, its not working. If I am the host, I can click this icon, but nothing happens. No blue box around the screen, no annotation tools pop up. The icon stays solid like I am supposed to be annotating, but nothing. When I click the icon, other viewers see a spinning icon, but nothing else.
I had another user host the meeting, and when they clicked the icon, they got the annotation tools. They said they could draw all over their screen, but I could not see the annotations. I could see their pointer moving around, and could tell that it was in either pen or highlighter mode by its shape and color, but none of the annotation showed through to my screen.
I read on MS site overviewing this topic that I might need to turn off GPU hardware acceleration but that did not help.

This feature is useless still for code-review as the person presenting cannot continue to use their screen and also gets locked into being an annotator.

@TommyM3453 Good point. That is something that I took notice of after making my original post.

I really can't believe msft messed this up. The scope is simple: copy Zoom's functionality. It would be nice to see some innovation, but really, this feels like an own goal.
