MC341571 – Updated June 2, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

For quick ad-hoc sessions that don’t require setting up a formal meeting, people can use Teams casting to wirelessly connect to a Teams Room and display content from the Teams desktop client (Windows and Mac). Users can share their screen and cast content stored locally on their computer or accessible via Office 365.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88027.

When this will happen:
