How to Share Screen On WhatsApp During Video Calls?
Before I explain the procedure to share screens via WhatsApp, let me tell you that WhatsApp does not allow you to share screens during video calls.
However, if you want to share the screen via WhatsApp, you will need to download a third-party application called, Inkwire Screen Share + Assist.
Before you skip reading this guide and download the Inkwire Screen Share app, let me tell you that this application must be installed on both devices (your phone and the person who will see your screen).
If you don’t know how to use Inkwire Screen Share to share screen via WhatsApp then follow the steps written below:
First, you will need to download and install Inkwire Screen Share on both devices.
If you have not downloaded it yet, you can download it by clicking on this link.
Once the installation is done, launch the application and tap on the ‘Share’ button as shown in the above picture.
When you tap on it, a prompt will appear on the screen informing you that Inkwire will capture everything displayed on the screen.
If you are willing to share everything shown on the screen, tap on the ‘Start Now‘ button. (Make sure you have granted permission to the Inkwire app.
When you tap on the ‘Start Now‘ button, an access code will be generated as shown in the above picture.
Once it is generated, tap on the Send Link button and select WhatsApp.
Once selected, share it with the person who you want to share your screen with.
When the person who you shared the link with clicks on the link, he will get an option ‘Connect’.
After tapping on the ‘Connect’ option, you will have to wait until it is connected.
Once you have successfully connected it, you simply need to tap on the ‘Got It’ option.
