Facebook Messenger Rolls Out Screen Sharing To Mobile Users



With many countries around the globe in their second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, many countries are re-initiating the lockdown. This means netizens screen time will increase as they find means of staying in touch with family, friends, and loved ones.

We've seen services like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Google Meet, Zoom, and others roll out new features to better compete. Early this year, Facebook added rooms to its messaging platform and as well screen sharing to web users. The company is now extending the screen sharing feature to mobile users.

"Today, we're excited to share that we're expanding the availability of messenger's screen sharing feature in video calls and Messenger Rooms to our mobile apps," Facebook said. "Screen sharing allows people to instantly share their screen with friends and family one-on-one or in a group video call with up to eight people and up to 16 people in Rooms while using Messenger on their mobile devices."


Screen sharing allow users to share a live view of their screen to other users virtually. That is, it could be photos from your camera roll, surfing on social media, shopping, and more.

In addition, Facebook says it will soon add the ability to control who can share their screens in Rooms and as well, expand the number of people a user can share their screen with up to 50 people within Messenger Rooms.

The new controls will also allow Room creators to decide for themselves whether to limit the ability to screen share to themselves or make the feature available to all participants when creating a room and during a call.
