    Facebook Messenger Announces Screen Sharing Feature


    Now, Facebook Messenger announces Zoom like screen sharing feature for app users on Android and iOS.

    This feature allows users to share their mobile and desktop screen activities with their friends and family on the Messenger app, and it is also available for web users.

    Zoom was the first brand that introduced a screen share option on its platform.

    While app users can share their screens with up to eight people in a group video call, Messenger Room supports up to 16 people at once.

    On iOS, you can share a live view of your iPhone screen with a friend or family member. When video calling someone, you can tap to expand the bottom menu and find the “Share Your Screen” option.

    After it’s selected, you can then navigate to your Photos app to share pictures, browse Instagram with a friend, shop online, and more.

    Nora Micheva, Product Manager of Messenger said in a blog post, "Today, we’re excited to share that we’re expanding the availability of Messenger’s screen sharing feature in video calls and Messenger Rooms to our mobile apps. Screen sharing allows people to instantly share their screen with friends and family one-on-one or in a group video call with up to eight people and up to 16 people in Rooms while using Messenger on their mobile devices. We know people are trying to stay connected more than ever and screen sharing is the latest feature we’re rolling out to bring people closer together.

    Screen sharing lets you share a live view of your screen so you can share virtually anything together. Whether you want to share memories from your camera roll, shop together online, co-browse social media, and more screen sharing makes it easy to stay connected and close with your loved ones, even when you’re physically apart. 

    The company has revealed that soon it will add the ability to control who can share their screen in Rooms and expand the number of people can share your screen with up to 50 within Messenger Rooms.

    With these new controls, Room creators will be able to determine whether to limit the ability to screen share to just themselves or make the feature available to all participants when creating a room and during the call.

    Screen sharing is now available globally on the latest versions of Messenger’s Android and iOS apps, desktop app and Web.
