Skype now allows sharing your Android smartphone’s screen on a video call

The brand new feature included in Skype's latest update for Android and iOS makes it possible for users to share the smartphone's screen during video calls. Considering that this feature moved from beta to the stable build in just a month, we can hope screen-sharing goes live in a similar duration as well. Recently, we have come to know that Skype Screen Sharing feature is under testing. Instead of having to describe what they should be seeing and where to tap, users can now just demonstrate where a certain feature or option is.

Microsoft's messaging app Skype looks like it's getting another friendly face in an upcoming version - yours!

The new screen sharing feature will allow you to share your screen with the person on the other side of the call.

Microsoft notes that users will be able to share their displays to show co-workers a PowerPoint presentation, or share their swipes on dating apps, or do some co-ordinated online shopping.

Skype users can share mobile screens during video calls.

For now, this feature is available in beta.

To try out this feature before Skype officially rolls it out, you can join the Skype Insider program, select your device and operating system, and download the Skype Preview app.

From phones to tablets and from Macs to PCs, Skype is available for everyone and as the company says, "Skype keeps the world talking". And because it's baked into Skype, you don't need any special software or settings configurations to use it. You can definitely find a lot of reasons for which this new feature will turn out useful. Instead as said earlier, the latest Skype Preview has it, which is in case you don't know what Skype Preview is, let's elucidate.
