WhatsApp has announced it is introducing the ability to share screens during video calls similar to what legacy video-conferencing platforms like Google Meet, Microsoft Meet and Zoom have been offering.
The feature was announced by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the messaging platform’s parent company, Meta, on Tuesday.

Screen sharing will be used for “sharing documents for work, browsing photos with family, planning a vacation or shopping online with friends, or just helping grandparents with tech support,” Meta said.
The feature started rolling out globally on Android, iOS, and Windows Desktop in a phased manner starting Tuesday.

Lucky testers of WhatsApp’s Beta program received the feature in May, accessible by tapping the “Share” icon during a video call.
And like the other video-conferencing platforms, users can choose between sharing a specific app or their entire screen.
At the same time, WhatsApp has started supporting landscape mode for video calls to enhance the screen-sharing experience during video calls.
