Now You Can Share Screens on Facebook Messenger Video Calls On Android and iOS

Facebook has added yet another new feature to Messenger in its quest to make the app the Zoom for most people – so to speak. We’re talking, of course, about screen sharing.

Just like Zoom, people can instantly share their mobile or desktop screen and activities with their friends on Messenger. While app users can share their screens with up to eight people in a group video call, Messenger Room supports up to 16 people at once. Earlier this month, Facebook was reported to be working on plans to integrate its Messenger with WhatsApp, enabling communication between the two apps.

Facebook is working on expanding that number to fifty people when in a room, but there isn’t a timeline for that just yet.Screen sharing should be rolling out now and is already available for me in the latest beta.

To start a screen sharing session, all you have to do is start a video call, and tap on “Share Your Screen”. On the next page, tap on the “Start Sharing” button. Your screen will now be broadcasted to all participants in the session.

Messenger Rooms, in case you didn’t know already, supports group video chats with up to 50 people.
