M365 Changelog: (Updated) Optimize for Video setting for screensharing

MC715695 – Updated March 27, 2024: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

In Microsoft Teams, Microsoft is providing manual settings to optimize screen sharing for video clips by reducing lag and improving the quality of video playback when sharing video clips in Teams meetings.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93483.

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: Microsoft will begin rolling out early May 2024 (previously mid-April) and expects to complete by mid-May 2024 (previously late April).

Worldwide: Microsoft will begin rolling out mid-May 2024 (previously late April) and expects to complete by late May 2024 (previously mid-May).

How this will affect your organization:

With the new feature you can manually optimize your screen sharing for video or motion content shared in Teams meetings. With this rollout, if automatic detection fails or is delayed, presenters can go to the Optimize for playing video setting on the Presenter toolbar overflow menu (the three-dot menu) to ensure their content is displayed as smoothly as possible.
