About screen share

Use screen share to share programs, websites, or your entire desktop within the meeting room. Meeting guests can follow along as you browse a website, conduct a demo, or walk through a slide deck on your computer, whether at their computers or on the go using their Android smartphones or iOS devices.

Note: You can't screen share from the mobile apps.

Share your screen

Anyone can share their screen, an application window, a whiteboard, or a file within the meeting. If you'd like, you can restrict sharing in your meeting room to only yourself and presenters (guests that you promote). The meeting room displays up to 16 active webcams above the shared screen, in a filmstrip. 

To share your screen, in the meeting controls, click the Share button and then select Screen Share.

When you screen share, the meeting stage shows a thumbnail view of what you are sharing. All others see your screen or window.

Share system audio while screen sharing

If you're using a Chrome or Edge browser, you can also share audio files and videos directly from your browser by allowing your system audio to play through screen share when you share your entire screen or a browser tab. Everyone using the desktop app or the Chrome, Edge, and Firefox browsers will hear your system audio. Screen share audio is not currently supported for Safari users.

View screen share

When someone is sharing their screen, you can zoom in and out or set the display at a precise percentage. You can also maximize the view or use full-stage mode to control how much of the screen area is used for shared screen. Both the full-stage and maximize view hide the meeting sidebar and meeting top bar. The meeting controls reappear when you point to the meeting stage. Either full-stage view or maximized view can be used but not at the same time.

Note: The full-stage and maximize buttons do not display when you’re sharing your screen.

Click the Full-Stage button to expand the shared screen to fill the meeting window without taking up your whole screen. Click the button again to reset your view.


Click the Maximize button to enter full-screen mode. Click the button again to reset your view.
