Skype beta testing screen sharing for iOS and Android

Skype adds screen sharing on iOS and Android - GSMArena.com news

Though, it had since lost its dominant position in the market, the Microsoft-owned video-calling app continues to launch and add some cool new features.

In case you're wondering why anyone would need such a feature on Skype, this comes in handy for a wide variety of purposes, and Microsoft highlights just a few of them. Unfortunately, most devices don't have a built-in screen sharing option, and only a handful of messaging apps let you do that seamlessly.

Microsoft is working on a new mobile feature that would allow Skype users on Android and iOS to share their screens during a call.

Screen-sharing, which allows Skype users to look at the same computer screen and collaborate without being in the same room, is being tested by Skype for a mobile release. Before now, Cisco WebEx, GoTo Meeting, and Zoom have all launched and enabled the feature on their various platforms.

The new feature is available for both Andoird and iOS users, but it's worth noting that the only users who will be able to access the update are the Skype beta users. If you are a Skype Beta tester (a.k.a Skype Insider), launch the Skype Preview app on your device, tap the ellipsis (...) menu icon during a video call, select "Share Screen" and then tap "Start Broadcast". By using the Screen Recording button, users will be able to enable this feature. The feature does not interfere with the usual process associated with making Skype video calls. In case if you are wondering how to make use of this feature here's how. Starting today, Skype has you covered.
