share your screen on Facebook Messenger for iPhone and Android
You can now instantly share your photos and surf social media with friends on Facebook's chat platform. Here's how.
How to use Facebook Messenger screen sharing on your phone
- Open the Messenger app on your iPhone or Android.
- Start a video call by selecting one or more contacts and tapping the camera icon.
- Once on the call, swipe up on the toolbar at the bottom (where you find the icons for hanging up or turning your mic off).
- From the expanded menu, tap Share your screen.
From that point on, the other people on the video chat will be able to see a live view of whatever is on your phone screen. The video chat interface will move to the upper right hand corner of your phone, so you'll still be able to see your friends on camera while you show them what's on your phone.
