Skype Adds iOS and Android Device Screen Sharing

Skype Adds iOS and Android Device Screen Sharing

The feature is now included in the Skype beta, and should hit the public release of the app later this year. Though, it had since lost its dominant position in the market, the Microsoft-owned video-calling app continues to launch and add some cool new features. Unfortunately, most devices don't have a built-in screen sharing option, and only a handful of messaging apps let you do that seamlessly.

If testing goes smoothly Microsoft will roll the screen sharing feature to the official iOS and Android apps in the coming months. Users will be allowed to share anything on their phone display to friends, family, or coworkers. This functionality is useful in a number of situations, including showing someone content that can't be sent, enabling others to watch you as you perform an activity, or for remotely showing presentations.

As such Microsoft is trying to bake in more features that bring the desktop and mobile experience closer together, hence its recent announcement that beta testers of the app are now testing a screen sharing function on both iOS and Android.

This new build brings screen sharing support to these apps. "Starting today, Skype has you covered", the company says.

While iOS apps are usually sandboxed, which usually prevents access to system functions such as the screen buffer, the app takes advantage of the iOS 11 live broadcasting API. It's just like screen sharing on a Mac or PC.

Background blur in Skype uses artificial intelligence to keep you in focus during video calls. The app is always improving via new updates, and another one just landed.

Separately, Skype has announced that users will now be able to call up to 50 people on a video or audio group call.
