Meta-owned WhatsApp continues to add features to the encrypted messengers. Today, WhatsApp has finally rolled out its much-awaited screen sharing feature for video calls after months of beta-testing.
The announcement was made by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Twitter, who stated that the messaging service now supports screen sharing in video calls, a feature that has been in development for a few months, which was released to beta testers in May.
WhatsApp’s screen sharing feature is a very useful addition to the platform that will allow users to share documents, photos or whatever else may be on their screens, which is handy during online classes or meetings.
You can access the screen sharing feature by tapping on the share icon and choosing whether you want to share a specific app only or your entire screen. WhatsApp screen sharing feature works somewhat similarly to Zoom and Google Meet’s screen sharing functions.
The screen sharing feature might help WhatsApp gain more business users as this feature is also handy when it comes to tech support. However, we are going to have to wait and see the user response to the new feature since WhatsApp is rolling out the update in a phased manner.
