I have now noticed that it also depends on the partner's device whether this option is available or not.

Screen sharing option will not be available when making calls to a phone number, neither when calling Skype for Business contact.

And not on video calls to Alexa Show.  Which is a pity.  So I could explain the smartphone to my grandmother. With a video call to an xbox one it is also not possible.
