Screensharing Now Available on WhatsApp Video Calls: Elevating Communication Possibilities


WhatsApp has expanded its video calling feature by introducing screensharing within the app. This recent enhancement enables participants in a call to share their device screens, as demonstrated by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg. This addition opens up new opportunities for presentations, educational, demonstrations, and other collaborative activities within the confines of the private chat platform.

Video functionality has gained significant traction on WhatsApp, especially as its popularity continues to surge in Western markets. Just last month, WhatsApp introduced video messaging for chats, and earlier in the year, it introduced picture-in-picture support for video calls.

Since early last year, users have had the capability to conduct video conversations with up to 32 individuals. This latest inclusion enriches engagement options by providing participants with an avenue to share specific examples in real-time.

This update proves beneficial for both regular users and brands. Businesses can utilize this feature to showcase their latest products and services, while everyday users can host watch parties or exchange memes with friends, all within the app. The versatility of this addition offers a wide array of possibilities. WhatsApp has announced that screensharing is being gradually rolled out starting today and will soon be accessible to all users.
