Microsoft Now Letting Skype Users to share Android or iOS phone screen on video calls
Microsoft is now planning to allow Skype users to share their Android and iOS phone displays on video calls. The tech giant has already started testing the sharing feature, via which users can share just about anything on their phone displays with their friends, family, or coworkers. Going with the Microsoft suggestion, users might use this for sharing PowerPoint presentations, or swipes on dating apps, or for online shopping with friends.
With this new feature, Skype is aiming to catch up with more business-focused apps like Cisco WebEx, GoTo Meeting, and Zoom, who already have this feature of sharing screens with the users. However to access this feature, you have to be a Skype Insider (beta tester). As per the sources, some users tested the latest iOS beta, but weren’t able to get screen sharing working.
To which Microsoft stated that it is coming to both Android and iOS in its community post, where they have even shown screenshots of it running on iOS. Look like, they simply hasn’t enabled it on the iOS beta just yet.
Although it’s not clear when Microsoft plans to enable this for everyone, but given the 50 video chat participant feature was in beta for less than a month, we expect to see this rolling out very soon.
