WhatsApp has just unveiled an exciting new addition to its feature lineup – the ability to share your screen during video calls. This move puts WhatsApp in direct competition with well-established video conferencing services like Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams. This feature, now available for Android, iOS, and Windows users, allows you to share either your entire screen or a specific app with your contacts during video calls.

The new screen-sharing feature can be accessed by tapping the "Share" icon during a video call, providing a versatile way to showcase documents, browse photos, or even shop online with friends. Additionally, Meta has introduced a landscape mode for video calls on mobile devices, offering a wider and more immersive viewing experience for users.

As messaging apps continue to evolve, the ability to seamlessly share screens adds a new layer of utility and flexibility, catering to both personal and professional communication needs.
