Our increasingly remote workforce needs a way to show their work. The screen sharing feature within a video conferencing service allows better collaboration between dispersed teams. Here’s how this important video conferencing feature works and how it can benefit your business.
Screen sharing is a feature of many modern video conferencing solutions. When the meeting leader shares their screen, the rest of the group sees what is displayed on his or her device. The meeting leader can also designate a participant to be the screen sharer, often when they are presenting.
Basically, it’s like projecting what’s on your screen across the room so others can see it. It’s a great tool for sharing documents, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, pictures, videos, images, and more with anyone on your team.
Today, we have very little time to waste. The popularity of video conferencing has proven to many of us that we don’t have to jump on a plane anymore to share information or ideas, close deals, or communicate with our teams.

This dilemma is what makes screen sharing a popular feature on most video conferencing platforms. Screen sharing can be used for:

Like any tool in business, practice makes perfect. If you’ve never shared your screen, the first time may feel awkward or you may even make a beginner’s mistake. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
