Microsoft Teams Room: share wirelessly from iOS or Android Teams app

Reference ID: MC249622

MC249622 – With this update, your end users can wirelessly share the content of their mobile device (iOS and Android) in a Teams Room without needing to first set up a meeting.

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

When this will happen

Rollout begins mid-April and will be complete 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.
