Facebook recently launched its screen-sharing feature on Messenger. This feature allows you to share your screen activity with your Messenger recipient in real-time. Here’s how to share screen on Messenger call.

This screen-sharing feature works by sharing your screen activity in real-time so others can see what you do on your phone. You don’t need a third-party screen-sharing app to do this.

Does this work like Teamviewer? No. This screen-sharing feature is only controlled by yourself. You can’t control someone else’s screen as well. It’s just you doing your thing on your phone while others can see it.

You can do this both on Android and iOS. You can do this on the PC as well, with any browser, including Chrome.
