    Microsoft's Cloud Video Interop (CVI) qualified partner program does not include the ability to share Microsoft PowerPoint Live as a Video-Based Screen Sharing (VBSS) content channel. Without Microsoft changes Cisco will not be able to deliver this functionality.

    We do plan to show an in-video notification that someone has begun a PowerPoint Live or Excel Live sharing and please use a Microsoft Teams client to view the content.

    I'm really hoping that this feature will come to CVI. As others mentioned, other companies have been able to deliver this, so Cisco should be able to? Perhaps get Microsoft to develop the requirements on their end, since you're partnering with them? I see it shows as planned currently. Can anyone from Cisco comment on whether this is now an actual planned feature?

    As Synergy Sky CVI can do it, this means Microsoft delivered the functionnality and this idea needs reconsideration. It will be highly appreciated as users behind a Cisco device with Cisco CVI are not even warned there is a screen sharing beeing live.

    Cisco has a solution on the GPL through their Solutions Plus Partner Synergy SKY called Synergy SKY Connect (SYNERGYSKY-PLAT in CCW) that can provide support for both applications based sharing like Power Point Live and whiteboards and 2-way screen/HDMI sharing as well as interoperability with Microsoft Teams (and Zoom/Google coming Summer 2023).

    Has anything changed since December 2021? We have many colleagues asking for this at CVS Health.
