Skype is giving users ability to share phone screen on video calls

Skype is giving users ability to share phone screen on video calls”

Skype is definitely the most popular video chatting app these days, and there are a lot of reasons for this achievement.

The app's insider build adds a Share screen option in the call menu so you can broadcast your screen to colleagues, friends, or family.

If testing goes smoothly Microsoft will roll the screen sharing feature to the official iOS and Android apps in the coming months. 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. Microsoft suggests this will be useful for sharing PowerPoint presentations, or collaborating with friends as you swipe your way through Tinder matches.

Skype won't be the first of such apps to implement screen sharing among users. Skype would come with a new button to share the screen, with simple options being offered, including permissions for the incoming video and subtitles. With this addition, Skype not only outpaces competitors in the consumer space - such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc. but also catches up with business-grade solutions like Slack (paid versions) or Zoom.

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. It allows you to concentrate on your calls without worrying whether your room is in a bad shape.

When you share your screen with someone else, they will see everything you see on your iOS device.

Background blur for Skype is available on desktop, the web and mobile; but you need the latest version of the app/software to start using it.
