Facebook Messenger might soon allow users to share their screen with friends and family

At times you want to teach a family member about how to use a specific app or remotely share a video with a friend to watch together. Facebook Messenger has finally decided to make things easier for you as they are working on a Screen Share feature for mobile devices.

Jane Manchun Wong discovered that the Facebook Messenger app for Android has started working on a screens share feature. She checked the unreleased feature by reverse-engineering the code.

A button appears on Video/Audio call screen through which Screen Share feature can be accessed. The feature is named “Share Your Screen Together” that let users share their content through video chat.

When a button is pressed to enable the screen share, the camera of the user is turned off, and people in a chat can instead see the screen only.

To enable the feature on Android devices, user will have to give Messenger app permission to capture the screen.


There is no definite time for the development and release of this feature. Also, several experimental features are tested, and not all are released. Therefore, it is yet to see whether Facebook roll out the screen share feature or will let go like many others.
