Updated September 30, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
As hybrid workplaces become more common, we're excited to let you know that content from camera will soon be available in Microsoft Teams. This option enables users to stream content from directly from physical artefacts such as whiteboards and documents in a legible way. During a Teams call, users will be able to access the projection options simply by clicking Share > Content from camera.
Two key projection options:

Whiteboard mode: Users can point their laptop webcam to their whiteboard to project it to their audience. If the camera detects a whiteboard in view, it is straightened, zoomed in and the presenter's hand or body does not block the content as she writes on it.
Document mode: Users can attach an external USB camera, such as a document camera, mounted over a document, to project to their audience.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 86062.
[When this will happen:]
We will begin rolling this out in mid-October (previously late September) and expect to complete rollout by late of October (previously early October).
