You can now share audio on Skype for Windows 10 during screen sharing

01 May 2017 4

Skype is the most popular video calling and chatting tool which is mainly because of a lot of features it offers. Among these features, screen sharing is one of the best ones which makes video calling a lot more productive for those who are using it for work purposes. And now with the new update, Skype has made this feature even better.

Skype for Windows 10 now supports audio sharing when a user is using the screen sharing feature. This is a good addition, especially for those who use the feature on regular basis. This will allow you to talk with the other person instead of typing long messages as you two share screens with each other.

The next change in the update is that Skype can now show you photos natively instead of opening the Microsoft Photos app. While the option to view a photo via the app is still available for those who might prefer it, it is good to know that native photo viewing support has also been added. It is certainly a good idea to have all the photos being shown directly on the Skype conversation instead of outside it.

And at last, Microsoft has added a dedicated feedback sharing option within the Skype app. This button will allow you to share feedback about Skype on Windows in an easier and faster way.

As far as I know, and I have used Skype of Win 8.1, I used to share screen as well as voice chat with my partner too. I am confused with this update.


Sorry, I am not getting this - sharing audio on Skype during screen sharing? We can keep audio call going on when we share the screen, isn't it? So, sharing screen and talking goes on simultaneously.


I really prefer Skype for chatting and video chatting. The USP of the app is that it allows sharing screens so I can easily show my partner what it looks like on my screen.
