Screen sharing is impossible after MacOS Catalina update. Even with giving permissions in Settings on Mac, I always get an error. I can't work anymore because all my meetings a done through Google Meet (Hangout). Does anyone know how to fix it?

Nope, nothing works. Tried in Chrome and Brave. Even with screen recording permissions enabled for those apps, and a browser restart, and a computer restart, screen sharing in Meet says it requires more permissions.

​Same issue. All privacy settings are set in accordance with guidelines (same as FireFox) and I am still prompted when starting a screen share to grant permissions.

Same here, nothing helps, using google chrome and catalina. added the extension in the hoped that it'll help, no luck. Screen share is enabled for chrome in privacy settings. This wasn't an issue a few days ago, now all went downhill.
