Microsoft rolled out Skype version 8.0 for desktop last year that brought features like screen sharing calls, chat media gallery, share photos, videos, and other files, and more. Expanding the screen sharing feature, today, Skype has launched the screen sharing feature on Android and iOS along with multiple improvements to their mobile calling experience.
Skype screen sharing comes to Android and iOS and with this feature, users can share their screen on Skype and get things done from anywhere. The company has redesigned the “…” menu and now it includes screen sharing feature during a Skype call.
To start using this feature, users have to start a Skype call, tap the new “…” menu and click on ‘Share screen’ option to start sharing their screen with their friends.
Alongside the launch of the screen sharing feature, Skype is introducing an improved and redesigned mobile calling experience. The speaker and audio device button now is in the upper right, next to the user’s video and the company says that this makes it easy for one handed audio device switching while on the go.
A single tap will dismiss the call controls and to make it clutter-free, double tapping will remove it all. The redesigned “…” menu allows users to access features like call recording and subtitles, keeping the video call clutter free.
Commenting on this, The Skype Team said:
Skype has always been the easiest way to share your screen with others, and now we’re taking one of our most popular features on the go. Starting today, we’re launching screen sharing on Android and iOS—along with multiple improvements to our mobile calling experience.
