WhatsApp has finally released its screen-sharing feature, allowing users to share their screens during video calls. This is a great way to collaborate with colleagues or friends on projects or to give presentations.
In a Facebook post, Mark Zuckerberg mentioned that WhatsApp now allows users to share their screens during video calls joining platforms like Teams, Meet, and Zoom in allowing users to share documents with their contacts while on a video call.
How to Use WhatsApp’s Screen-Sharing Feature
Meta did not specify whether this is a global release, but given that the screen-sharing feature has been in Beta testing for over a month, it is likely that all users will begin to have access to this feature soon.
To use the screen-sharing feature, follow these steps:
- Open WhatsApp and start a video call with the person or people you want to share your screen with.
- Tap the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.
- Select “Share Screen.”
- Choose whether you want to share a specific app or your entire screen.
- Once you have selected what you want to share, the other person will be able to see it on their screen.
- To stop sharing your screen, tap the three dots again and select “Stop Sharing Screen.”
Although your screen content is continuously shared during the video call, you can halt sharing at any time. Additionally, your screen content is only visible after you grant permission.
