Skype’s screen sharing feature – innovation in Apple and Android Skype
When we hear the word SKYPE, instantly Video Call comes into our minds. Well! Skype is much more than just Video Calling. Yes, you hear it right. It has extremely amazing features that any other app might not have. It allows you to talk to your loved ones as well as to your company members far across the world. You not only share your videos but you may also share screens in order to carry out effective work within the organization. However, everything has a limitation. Not long ago, Skype only has screen sharing option on Desktop apps. People who use iphones or Android Phones might not avail this opportunity. Now the developers are starting to introduce the Skype’s Screen sharing feature on iphones as well as on Android Phones. This will change the use of Skype to a new level.
How to use Skype
Now for those who are new to Skype, the usage is very simple and easy.
- You first need to install the latest version of Skype on your Desktop or Mobile phones.
- After installation is complete, you are now going to Sign in to your Skype account.
- Once you have registered yourself with the Skype account using your personal Cell number then the Skype will show you your potential contacts who have been using Skype.
- If you share your contact number with other person then he or she might be able to contact you via Skype.
- If you share your Skype name with other person then they might also contact you.
Sharing is Caring in Skype
Once you have become the member of Skype, you are now going to share your personal or professional stuff with your contacts. Here, one thing must keep in mind that right now Skype of Desktop version is only allowing screen sharing of various files or documents.
Sharing in iphones and Androids
The sharing feature in iphones or in Androids is not yet introduced to the world. However, the feature is currently live in the latest beta app for Skype insiders via Neowin. The user might turned it on by tapping the share screen button. By introducing this feature in iphones, Skype is taking a huge step because Apple is also launching a new ReplayKit framework for its developers. This framework will be able to build app extensions for live broadcasting. As for any new platform, Skype is taking time to completely test their new feature before launching it for the public use. This new feature might take time, but when it’s here, it is going to revolutionize the world of sharing.
Skype comes with great benefit when you are hesitant to share your personal contact number with unknown people. Skype has a huge security feature. If you block a person from your contacts, he or she might never be able to contact you in the future.Author: Amelia Coleman
