Skype gets screen share feature for Insider build users

14 April 2019 2

Popular online video calling and messaging app Skype did a UI overhaul last year making the app look much cleaner and simpler to use. Now in the latest development, the app gets the ability to share the mobile screen while on a video call, thus helping the users to show or share something on their mobile that they want their counterpart to see. It’s like a screencast shown through the video call to the other person on call.


The feature is currently being rolled out to Skype Insider users, though it would be part of the public launch quite soon as well. Microsoft shares how using this feature, people on Skype calls would be able to show Powerpoint presentations and similar tasks like coordinated online shopping.

Currently, there is no word out there as to when the Silicon Valley giant would be bringing this update to the public though whenever it does come, it surely would be appreciated from all corners. Meanwhile, if you’re aiming to test this one, you can join the Skype’s Insider Preview programme by heading over to their website to Sign Up.

Are you looking forward to using this update? Share your views in the comment section below.

Yup, cool feature and a welcome one. Have used the same number of times on my laptops when I needed to share the screen. Skype has brought out a pretty useful feature.

Yup. But currently only for the Insider build users. It's going to take time until it becomes a mainstream feature. Anyway, it's still a great feeling to know that the feature is finally for mobile users too :) :)
