Microsoft Makes Skype Group Screen Sharing Free For All Customers

Following group video chat, Microsoft is now making group sharing free for free for all Skype users. Previously, group sharing was restricted to Skype Premium customers alone. Screen sharing lets you share your computer screen with anyone on Skype. For example, you can display presentations, show friends and family your photos without having to send them, or show someone how something works on your PC.

Sharing your computer screen is the easy way to collaborate with a friend or colleague. Making big travel plans online? Do it together. Or why not give grandma a quick demo of how you use Skype, so she can start using it too. You can share your screen with anyone on Skype for free.

To Share your screen,

  1. Make a voice call or video call to the person or group you want to share your screen with. Learn how to create a group in your contact list.
  2. After the call has started, click the + button in the call bar and select Share screens.
  3. In the dialog box that appears, click Start to share your entire screen.
  4. You can change your screen sharing options at any time by clicking the Change sharing options icon in the floating call window.
  5. When you want to stop sharing your screen, in the floating call window click Stop sharing.
  6. Only one person can share their screen at a time, although you can switch presenters at any time and as often as you like.

The person or group you are sharing your screen with can send you video at the same time, and you can also talk to each other, send instant messages and send files.
