M365 Changelog: Teams desktop app for Mac: Include computer sound in a meeting
MC235180 – Updated June 30, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
The Microsoft Teams desktop app for MacOS will soon allow users include their computer’s sound when sharing either their desktop or a window in a meeting.
When this will happen
- Rollout for production and GCC tenants begins in mid-May (previously early April) and should be complete in mid-June (previously late April) Complete.
- Rollout for GCC-High and DoD tenants begins in early July (previously mid-June) and should be complete by early August (previously mid-July).
How this will affect your organization
With this update, Mac users can share audio from their speakers with other meeting participants, such as when they share a video with sound as part of a collective viewing experience.
This feature will be available to all Mac users in your tenant unless you have set the ScreenSharingMode policy to None.
This feature requires a one-time installation of an audio driver. Users will be prompted to install the audio driver when they select Include computer sound from the Share content tray in a meeting. Once installed, users can freely toggle the functionality on or off before or after they start sharing a desktop or window.
What you need to do to prepare
Please inform your users about this functionality and point them to the user documentation so they are aware of the limitations once documentation is released.
