Skype Testing Feature on iOS and Android That Lets You Share Your Screen With a Friend

Skype has begun testing a feature on the iOS and Android beta versions of the company’s app, allowing users to share their screens during a call (via The Verge). According to Microsoft, this will let users share a PowerPoint presentation with coworkers, browse dating apps with friends, or go online shopping with a family member.


To see the new addition, you must be part of the Skype Insider program for beta testers, which you can sign up for on the company’s website. To get to screen sharing, beta testers can tap on the ellipsis icon during a call and select “Share Screen.” Skype didn’t give any indication about a wider launch for the feature.

Earlier this month, Skype increased the number of users that can be on the same audio or video group call to 50 (previously the max was 25). This update put Skype ahead of Apple’s FaceTime for the number of users that can take part in a group call, since FaceTime supports a maximum of 32 people.
