Can't share Terminal window on a Mac

On a Mac (chrome 94, big sur 11.4):

Trying to share a Terminal window while chatting gives an error.
Trying to share the whole screen wasn’t even an option (greyed out).
Sharing a browser tab worked fine.

Looks like it might be specific to Big Sur (if not specific to your machine). Couldn’t replicate it on High Sierra - screensharing works as expected, Terminal and all.

What errors do you see?

I cannot repro that on Big Sur 11.6, Chrome 95. No issues sharing Terminal window, whole window, or browser tab. With our without chat open.

System PreferencesSecurity & Privacy → Scroll down to Screen Recording in the left pane and click it → Make sure Google Chrome is ticked in the right pane.
