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. We know people are trying to stay connected more than ever, and screen sharing is the latest feature we’re rolling out to bring people closer together.
The Facebook Sharing Screen feature is also available on Desktop Messenger. Lock-down is doubling the demand for video-chat on social media networks. During the pandemic, screen-sharing is the best way to share memories or shop online. Teach someone a skill or something.
Whether you want to share memories from your camera roll, shop together online, co-browse social media, and more – screen sharing makes it easy to stay connected and close with your loved ones, even when you’re physically apart.
