Microsoft is planning a big design refresh for the in-meeting Share experience in the desktop version of Teams. This should make it easier for presenters to find their desired content more quickly and easily. The Microsoft 365 roadmap says that the feature is scheduled to start rolling out in mid-February to Windows and Mac clients.

Microsoft Teams allows users to share PowerPoint presentations directly onto meetings and video calls. As a part of this redesign effort, the company is adding some noticeable changes for the Share screen in Teams meetings in an attempt to keep the share tray clutter-free.

Interestingly, Teams users will now see a new menu when sharing their screen, window, Whiteboard, or PowerPoint slides during meetings. As shown in the screenshot above, the Share icon will be accessible from the menu bar, and it comes with options like include computer sound.

The software gaint is always looking to add refinements to the meeting and calling experience in its Teams collaboration platform. In addition to these improvements, Microsoft is planning to launch a new Presenter View to help users keep track of their presentations. As of now, the presenter needs to join the Microsoft Teams public preview program to test out the new feature, but it shouldn’t be long before it starts rolling out to the public.
