Screen sharing is when you use an app to allow other people to see what’s on your device’s screen, whether you’re using a phone, tablet, or computer. Show everything on your screen or just one part of it, such as a specific file or window.

Screen sharing gives everyone a real-time look at the same thing without needing to email it, so it’s easier to understand what someone is referring to. Screen sharing can make it easier to effectively train a new employee, brainstorm, provide IT assistance or customer support, give a webinar, or make a presentation.

With more people working remotely, sharing your screen can help connect people and increase participation no matter where you are. Screen sharing can help make meetings more productive and improve communication.

An app with screen sharing built in, like Microsoft Teams, makes it easy to get everything done in one place during a chat or online meeting. People can see and work on files at the same time to get things done faster.

In Microsoft Teams, a red outline appears around the window or application you are currently sharing, so you know what is and isn’t visible.
