The video calls with whatsapp become even more complete: the app will introduce a screen sharing feature with the others. This feature, typical of desktop apps like Skype, Microsoft Teams and Zoom, is also coming to the Meta platform. And some users using the beta version are starting to use it.
WhatsApp and screen sharing in video calls
As reported by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is introducing a feature that allows you to show the screen during a video call. You will have to authorize the app to record or broadcast to then show what happens on the screen of your smartphone.
But you have to pay attention to safety, as the app itself explains. Which in fact reads: “WhatsApp will be able to access all the information visible on the screen or reproduced by your device during recording or transmission. This includes information such as passwords, payment details, photos, messages and audio you play.”
So, if you decide to show the screen, you have to be careful: you risk compromise sensitive data on your phone.
The beta version 220.127.116.11 for Android allows you to use the function of phone screen recording. This feature allows you to capture everything that happens on the screen of your device, including video calling with WhatsApp.
WhatsApp is constantly improving its features to offer its users a more complete and secure communication experience. Among the novelties introduced recently there is the possibility of edit sent messages, support multiple phones and now screen sharing during video calls.
