QuixTec provides technical bulletins ‘unaltered’ from Microsoft. As an authorized Microsoft Partner, experienced SharePoint development group and Office 365 expert, QuixTec’s’ custom online or on prem solutions include the latest Microsoft updates throughout initiatives that we custom develop.

Message Summary

The Microsoft Teams desktop app for MacOS will soon allow users include their computer’s sound when sharing either their desktop or a window in a meeting.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 67168 and 67169.

When this will happen

  • Rollout for production and GCC tenants begins in late January and should be complete in early February 2021.
  • Rollout for GCCH and DoD tenants begins in mid-February and should be complete by late February 2021.

How this will affect your organization

With this update, Mac users can share audio from their speakers with other meeting participants, such as when they share a video with sound as part of a collective viewing experience.

This feature will be available to all Mac users in your tenant unless you have set the ScreenSharingMode policy to None

Install driver

This feature requires a one-time installation of an audio driver. Users will be prompted to install the audio driver when they select Include computer sound from the Share content tray in a meeting. Once installed, users can freely toggle the functionality on or off before or after they start sharing a desktop or window.

What you need to do to prepare

Please inform your users about this functionality and point them to the user documentation so they are aware of the limitations once documentation is released.

The feature already exists for the Teams desktop app for Windows.
