Great features of Zoom and Google Meet will also be available on WhatsApp. Now you will be able to do ‘screen-sharing’ between WhatsApp video calls.

Meta-owned instant messaging service WhatsApp, is making strides toward becoming a full-fledged corporate solution. For this purpose, WhatsApp is presently working on integrating capabilities from both Google and Zoom into group calls.

WhatsApp is always making available to its users a plethora of brand-new features. This is the next step in the process where the corporation is going to deploy the functionality that was still present in software like as Zoom and Google Meet. During video conversations, you may take advantage of this capability to share the screen. Users will be able to share the screen of their phone or WhatsApp Desktop while participating in a personal call or group call if this feature is implemented in the near future, as it is rumored to be coming to users in the near future.

Users who have updated to Android version will, according to a report by WABETAINFO, get access to this functionality when it becomes available. The website that was used to track this development in WhatsApp stated that this function is intended to improve the overall experience that users have when participating in video conversations.

The “editing messages sent” feature of the messaging platform that is owned by Meta was only recently released. The most recent version is now being distributed across the world, and it is anticipated that it will be accessible to all users over the next several weeks.

How can I use the ‘share screen’ function on a WhatsApp video call?

Users who have updated the application will notice a new symbol in the call control view that appears while they are on a video call. The moment the user makes the decision to share their screen, everything that is seen on the screen of their smartphone will be captured and sent to the receiver.

The user has the opportunity to stop the process of sharing their screen at any moment, despite the fact that screen materials are always being broadcast during video conversations. In addition, this function will not be enabled to share the contents of the user’s screen unless the user gives their explicit permission to do so.
