WhatsApp is once again working on a bunch of new updates for Microsoft Windows. The Meta-owned app has started testing one of the most anticipated features that will enable users to share their screens during a video call. This screen-sharing option during video calls is already offered by Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.

The latest update for WhatsApp on Windows, version 2.2322.1.0 will be available on the Microsoft Store, and that will allow to use this new feature. Users who have enrolled themselves as beta testers of the WhatsApp for Windows app will get to test the new feature of the screen-sharing option on an early basis. This feature will allow the host to display the content on their screen to others.

Now, we just have to wait for the testing phase to get over and the screen-sharing feature will be available for a wider audience with future updates.


Earlier, WABetaInfo even shared a screenshot to show how the new screen-sharing feature on WhatsApp will work. You will have to click on the option from the video call control panel.

The users can select this option after which they will be prompted to choose between sharing a specific window or the entire contents of their screen with everyone on the video call. This feature will only enable users to share their screen with those who are connected to the call from their mobile devices.

Moreover, WhatsApp will have access to all the information that is visible on your screen or played from your device while using the screen-sharing feature which also includes sensitive information like passwords, payment details, photos, messages, and audio that you play.

You can stop sharing the screen by clicking on the "Stop Sharing Screen'' button which will help maintain privacy and control over the content they share.
