Include device audio when sharing on Teams for iOS and Android

Reference ID: MC263536 | Effective: June 28, 2021

MC263536 – This feature update will allow users to include their device audio when screen sharing on iPhones/iPads and Android devices. This is rolling out on Teams mobile.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 83353.

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin and complete rolling this out in late June.

How this will affect your organization:

This update will enable the meeting participants to hear the device audio during the meeting, while the presenter is sharing audio-enabled content (e.g., videos, music, apps with audio).

Once it’s rolled out, users will see an additional option to include device audio, next to the existing Share Screen option.

They will also see the option to turn off device audio sharing during the presentation, if they’ve already started the sharing.

This option is rolling out default off for users. Users can choose to enable it as needed for each screen sharing session.

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.

This feature is available only for:

  • iPhone & iPads running iOS 13 or later
  • Phones and tablets running Android 10 or later
