Microsoft recently implemented a new feature in Microsoft Teams called Share Content from Camera. The Microsoft Teams share content from camera feature allows users to make a physical object the focus of a shared screen during a Microsoft Teams Meeting. For example, a user who is facilitating a meeting in a boardroom where some participants are in the same room and others are attending virtually would be able to pan their camera to a physical whiteboard and clearly and cleanly display it as a shared screen in the meeting window.
