The telecommunications application Skype is providing a new feature to its users. While users have been able to share their desktop screens via Skype for years, the company just added screen sharing support to the iOS and Android mobile applications.
Few days ago tech giant Microsoft announced that it has launched an iOS and Android screen-sharing feature to the latest Skype Insider build -- version 18.104.22.168.
You can find the Share Screen option under the "..." menu on the mobile application. This addition orients the platform better towards businesses giving users the ability to share PowerPoint presentations or edit documents together. Otherwise, you can use it to "share your swipes on dating apps" or "do some online shopping with your bestie."
You’ll have to sign up to be a Skype Insider -- aka Skype beta tester -- to gain access to the feature.
The tech ginat has not announced whether or not the feature will roll out to all standard users, though considering that other applications like Cisco WebEx and GoTo Meeting already support the feature, Skype will be catching up to the competition in no time.
