Message Summary

Updated April 14, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap IDs 70564 and 70565.

When this will happen

Rollout begins end of April (previoiusly mid-April) and will be complete mid-May (previously late April).

How this will affect your organization

Using Bluetooth, users can broadcast their screen and cast content stored on locally on their device or content accessible via Office 365.

To do this, with content other than a PowerPoint slide deck, users must first launch the Cast app by accessing the More […] menu. The Cast icon will appear above the PowerPoint presentation.

The Cast app will search for and then list nearby Teams Rooms.

User should have these versions of the Teams mobile app:

  • Android: 1416/1.0.0.2021032202 or higher
  • iOS: version 3.4.0 or higher

What you need to do to prepare

Everything on the device screen, including notifications, will be projected. You may want to advise your users to first set their device to Do Not Disturb before sharing their screen.
