Microsoft Teams And Remote Desktop

A short video to demonstrate how you can enable Microsoft Teams External Users and Guests to give and request remote desktop control while in a Microsoft Tea. As far as I know, Teams can share the desktop, app window and PPT files on local computer. Currently Teams doesn't support sharing Remote desktop. So if you run Teams in Mac, Teams will only share the Mac desktop. In this scenario, you can try to run Teams in Windows to share the Windows desktop as a workaround.

With native support for the Apple Silicon platform and the M1 chip, the app runs with better performance and more energy efficiency, which means that it should consume less battery power when running on a MacBook.

In addition, version 10.6 of Microsoft Remote Desktop for macOS also adds support for client-side IME when using Unicode keyboard mode, integrated Kerberos support in the CredSSP, and improved compatibility with macOS Big Sur. You can check out all the changes in the release notes below:
