Screen Sharing feature now available on Facebook Messenger
In the wake of the current pandemic, video calls became our primary source of communication for work, socializing or just talking to our loved ones. A tremendous increase was seen in the use of video call and meeting apps all over the world. In the midst of all this, the screen sharing facility proved extremely helpful to everyone.
Facebook also dove in the race and has introduced screen sharing on Messenger for all android and iOS users. An executive from Facebook said, “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… 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.”
Now users can share their live screen with up to 16 people at once. To assist with this, Messenger Rooms is also an extension app which allows video calling. Through Messenger Rooms users can chat with up to 50 people at one time. The room creator can choose to grant screen sharing access to other participants in the meeting.
