Currently, users on Android and iOS platforms can test out the new feature, as long as they are part of Skype’s insider program. After installing the beta version on your device and launching a call, you will now be able to activate the new screen sharing function from the setting menu. Once activated the app will signal that screen sharing is activated, while also letting you stop broadcasting at any point with a single tap in the top left corner.

If testing proves successful, Microsoft will roll the screen sharing feature to the official iOS and Android apps in the coming months.
