You Can Share Your Smartphone's Screen During Video Calls

Whilepeople who own a Windows notebook or PC will turn to Skype for their messaging and video calling needs, the Microsoft-owned application is used far less often on mobile.

While Microsoft hasn't yet announced a timeframe for the public release of the feature, but as pointed out by 9to5Mac, features usually roll out within a couple of months after an insider beta.

The new screen sharing feature will allow you to share your screen with the person on the other side of the call.


Microsoft says that the feature will help users collaborate on PowerPoint presentations with colleagues, use the wise counsel of a good friend before swiping left or right on Tinder, or just go shopping online with friends. But Skype might soon be the new secret weapon when it comes to helping baby boomers figure out how to use their new-fangled smartphones, as it's soon rolling out a new screen sharing feature on its iOS and Android apps. The option can be accessed by tapping the three dots at the bottom of the screen, and then selecting Screen Share.

Skype has also illustrated how this Screen Sharing feature will work through the Control Center Screen on an iOS device.

"Your device is no longer a limitation on getting more done with Skype". Recently, we have come to know that Skype Screen Sharing feature is under testing. With this change, Skype now permits a bigger number of members in group calls than FaceTime which permits up to 32 individuals in a single call, however enterprise-focused software, for example, Zoom enable you to have up to 100 members on a solitary call.
