Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta, has introduced a new feature on WhatsApp that enables screen sharing during video calls.
AT3 Resources, a consulting firm responsible for managing Meta’s operations in Nigeria, reported that Zuckerberg shared this update on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
The most recent enhancement empowers users to share their screens in real-time while engaged in conversations. By simply clicking on the dedicated ‘Share’ icon, users can opt to share either a specific application or their entire screen.
Meta elaborated that this functionality opens up a range of possibilities, from collaborating on work-related documents to browsing through photos with family, planning trips, shopping online with friends, or providing technical assistance to grandparents.
The screen sharing feature adds a dynamic element to calls, allowing users to present a live view of their screen content during discussions.
“This feature has both personal and professional utility. Additionally, WhatsApp users can now enjoy video calls in landscape mode on smartphones, offering a broader and more immersive viewing and sharing experience during video calls,” Meta explained.
The platform originally introduced video calling for its users in November 2016. Since then, it has consistently integrated new features to enhance user experiences and meet evolving communication requirements.
In addition to the screen sharing update, WhatsApp is also introducing message editing support for media with captions on iOS devices. This addition permits users to edit messages containing media, giving them greater control over their communication.
