WhatsApp announces screen-sharing for video calls
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook to introduce the screen-sharing feature for WhatsApp. He wrote, “We're adding the ability to share your screen during a video call on WhatsApp.”
In a company release, Meta explained in detail how users can share their screens while on a WhatsApp video call.
“You can initiate screen-sharing by clicking on the ‘Share’ icon and choosing between sharing a specific application or sharing the entire screen,” the tech giant stated.
It also added, “Whether sharing documents for work, browsing photos with family, planning a vacation, shopping online with friends, or just helping parents with tech support – sharing the screen lets you share a live view of your screen during the call.”
According to a media report, the new feature is getting rolled out on Android, iOS, and Desktop in a ‘phased’ manner. So, the users may not avail the new facility immediately but they will soon get it.
In the same press statement, meanwhile, Meta also announced a Landscape mode for WhatsApp video conversations.
“You can now also enjoy video calls in Landscape mode for a wider and more immersive viewing and sharing experience on your phone,” it said.
