Teams got a new feature out today! You can start a screen sharing directly in a chat (1:1 or group chat) without making a call first.
There is a new screen sharing button that can be found in chat. Then you choose what you want to share with others.
It is good to note a few things
- you can’t activate a audio or video call if you are sharing a screen
- you can’t share a screen in one session and participate in another call at the same time
- If you are in a call and you start a screen sharing in another chat: the current call goes to hold
Basically a screen sharing in a chat is a call/meeting with limited features
