Microsoft Teams web client poor video and desktop sharing experience RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys, as I'm guest user in many tenants using Teams, I use the web client of Teams which each instance having its own profile in Edge Chromium dev channel. The experience with the web interface has been far from ideal having video feeds from participants in meetings not showing properly most of the time and screen sharing from participants often not showing for me. I was trying Edge stable channel and didn't notice much difference. My own video most of the time doesn't show up to people, and desktop sharing from my side also often doesn't work.

    I normally have these Teams instances installed as progressive web app which creates the boundary between each instance, but the lack of stability and consistency with Teams in regards to video feed and desktop sharing is driving me crazy!

    What are your findings with the web client so far?

  • Hi Alex!

    According to your description, do you mean guest user cannot share desktop normally in Teams Web client?

    Does anyone else have the same issue?

    I did a test in my environment and they can share desktop each other with no issue. But it seems they cannot get request control when they are sharing desktop.

    In this case, we recommend you try to change another browser to see if this issue can be fixed.

    If the above suggestion cannot fix your issue, we also recommend you give a feedback in Teams UserVoice(https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/).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.

    Your time, understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated.

    Best Regards,
