Teams – Window sharing is now generally available in Azure Virtual Desktop

image  The Microsoft Teams product group has been working hard to deliver seamless user experience in Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) for Teams users to provide similar experience on both physical and virtualized (aka AVD) session.

  The capability to share your windows in Azure Virtual Desktop session while using Teams is now generally available.

That said, you need to ensure the following prerequisites are met:

In addition, if Teams is running as a published application (remote app) – meaning users logon to Teams through the published application and not through a Windows session – you need to also have the below registry:

  • Path: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\AddIns\WebRTC Redirector\Policy
  • Registry key name: ShareClientDesktop
  • Registry type: DWORD
  • Value: 0 (1 to disable, 0 to enable the feature)

You may also need the application sharing registry key too:

  • Path: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\AddIns\WebRTC
    Redirector\Policy
  • Registry key name: DisableRAILAppSharing
  • Registry type: DWORD
  • Value: 0 (1 to disable, 0 to enable the
    feature)
