Screen sharing is possible while in a videocall. While sharing you can annotate, type text, and enjoy the remote control features. You can share multiple windows at a time.
Screen sharing is currently not supported on mobile devices, however receiving shared and annotated screens are supported.
While you can share a video, we do not recommend it as the screen sharing feature is not designed for that. There may be no audio or the shared video's quality will be affected. We recommend sending the video file via chat or video call. See guide.
Share and Annotate
1. While in a call, click on the green Share button located on the window's upper right corner. An orange border will appear around the window to indicate that it is being shared.
Alternatively, you can click the Share screen icon on the video window then choose an open window or app. You also have an option to share your desktop.
Another alternative is to go to Tools located on your address book.
2. To annotate, click Pen. To type on a screen, click Text. To unshare, simply click Unshare.
While in a call, click on the V icon. Select which window or app to share. You also have an option to share your desktop. An orange border will appear around the window or app to indicate that it is being shared.
