WhatsApp, a tool for instant messaging from Meta, has added a new feature called “screen-sharing,” which lets users share presentations or documents during live video calls.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, announced this on Tuesday in an Instagram post. In the post, he hinted that users can now share presentations or documents during live video calls, just like they can on regular video conferencing platforms.
The function was first made available to Android beta testers at the end of May. To use it, tap or click the “Share” icon. Users can share either just one app or their whole screen.
“Screen sharing lets you share a live view of your screen during the call, so you can share papers for work, look at photos with family, plan a trip or shop online with friends, or just help your grandparents with tech support.
“You can share your screen by clicking on the “Share” icon and choosing to share either a specific app or the whole screen,” Zuckerberg said.
The CEO said that the screen-sharing tool has begun to roll out gradually on Android, iOS, and Windows Desktop. So, you might not see the option right away, but you should soon.
