Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, recently unveiled a significant update to WhatsApp, the well-known messaging program. You may now use the messenger to share your screen during video calls.
Since the function was made available to beta users back in May, we already knew it was coming, but it is now formally rolling out to WhatsApp’s stable version worldwide.
Its operation is fairly straightforward. Whatever is on your screen—a paper, a presentation, pictures, etc.—can be shared with this tool. It is unknown if it will also apply to video games.
By clicking the share button during a video call, you can go to the feature. Similar to other talking programs like Google Meet, Discord, Zoom, etc., you can then decide whether to show a specific window or your entire screen.
A new feature is often introduced gradually and in phases, so not everyone may see immediate visibility. All users will eventually be able to access it on Android, iOS, and the Windows desktop client.
In addition to the ability to share a screen, WhatsApp now supports video calls in landscape orientation.
In addition to those features, WhatsApp is also developing a number of other ones, some of which have already been seen in test versions of the program. The app’s user interface will soon receive many small improvements, 3D animated stickers, and email verification for increased security.
