  • Skype for Business for iOS users receive the following notification:
    UserA tried to start a screen presentation, but this version of the app only supports that in conference calls and Skype Meetings.
  • Skype for Business Desktop users receive the following notification:
    The invitation you sent to UserB expired.
When you try to start a desktop sharing session in a P2P video conversation with a Skype for Business for iOS user, you experience the following symptoms:
  • Skype for Business for iOS users are not notified that the desktop user tried to start a desktop sharing session.
  • Skype for Business Desktop users receive the following notification:
    The invitation you sent to UserB expired.

Cause

This issue occurs because desktop sharing is currently supported for Skype for Business iOS users only in a Skype for Business conference. This is the same behavior that occurs in Microsoft Lync 2013 for iOS.
