How To Share Your Screen During Facebook Messenger Video Calls

You can now share your screen on Facebook Messenger video calls as the company has enabled the feature for mobile devices. This means users can now better collaborate, in a group chat, in one-on-one conversations or even in Messenger Rooms.


At the moment, users can share their screen with eight people in group chats or up to 16 people in Messenger Rooms. Facebook, however, says it’s working to expand the feature for up to 50 people in Rooms. The screen sharing feature is available on both Facebook for Android and iOS.

Facebook is probably making sure that users are intentionally trying to share their screens by including many processes. After tapping on start broadcast, users can share whatever they want or stop the broadcast by returning to the call.


Screen sharing is already available on most videoconferencing apps and Facebook is increasing its offerings to meet up with rivals.


More people have relied on video calls as the COVID-19 pandemic has meant in-person meetings could no longer take place like before. People now rely on videoconferencing apps to connect with friends, family, and colleagues. Screen sharing is very useful in showing the person at the other end of the call what you can see on your own device.
