Windows 11 Preview Update Content 11 Build 22499

Directly share the application window opened in the taskbar to the call of Microsoft Teams

In the version released last week, Microsoft introduced the ability to quickly mute / unmute Microsoft Teams conference calls directly from the taskbar. Today, Microsoft announced the expansion of this experience to be able to directly share open application windows on the taskbar with calls from Microsoft Teams.

This experience, which also started with Microsoft Teams, eliminates the need to switch between apps to share or re-share a window. There is no interference with your meeting platform or what they see on the screen – share the open windows of your phone.

When you make a conference call through Microsoft Teams, simply hover your mouse over the running application on the taskbar and you will see a new button that allows you to share your window with the conferencing platform. When you’re done sharing your content, hover over the window again and click to stop sharing, or select another window and click to share this window. If you’re doing a full-screen presentation in PowerPoint, just move your mouse to the bottom and the taskbar will appear so you can share or unshare the presentation without affecting attendees.

Microsoft is starting to roll out this experience for Windows Insiders users who have installed Microsoft Teams for Work or School, gradually rolling it out over time. This means that not everyone can immediately see this feature on their Teams call. Microsoft plans to introduce this feature in Microsoft Teams chats (Microsoft Teams for the family) later on.

Changes and improvements

According to the comments, Microsoft is making the keyboard focus visuals in Task View and Alt + Tab more prominent, so they are easier to see.
