Microsoft Teams is getting a new in-meeting Share experience that should make it easier for presenters to share content from their device. If the software giant initially released the revised sharing experience to the public preview version of Teams, the company has just begun rolling out the feature to all desktop users.
As noted by Microsoft 365 consultant Laurent Sittler on Twitter, users will now see a new flyout when sharing their screen, window, Whiteboard content, or PowerPoint slides during Teams meetings. The new user interface aims to deliver a clutter-free experience to help presenters find and share the right content in their meetings. “We’ve streamlined the experience to make it easier to find what you’re looking for, and hopefully less overwhelming and cluttered,” the company explained.

It is important to note that Microsoft has acknowledged a couple of known issues with this update. Users may experience some problems while opening PowerPoint Live files, loading items in the share tray, and resizing the meeting window. The company is seeking user feedback to improve the in-meeting share experience in future releases.
In addition to this feature, Microsoft is also rolling out a new Calling experience for Teams desktop users. This update has been designed to simplify and streamline the calling functionality, and you can find more details in our separate post.
