Sharing control while sharing the screen is not possible in Teams for Linux

Tobias 11 Reputation points


I am using Teams for Linux on Ubuntu and basically everything works fine.
But I am missing one important feature. Currently it is not possible to take control of the mouse/keyboard of a shared screen.
This is possible when using the Windows client but the button is missing in the Linux client.

Why is this feature not implemented in the Linux client? Is there any plan to implement this in future releases?

    Hi Tobias-6674,

    It recommends you give a feedback to

    Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience. Some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service.
