How To Share Your Screen On Signal
Last Updated: December 13, 2021
Do you have something to show to your friends or contacts on Signal? Are you having trouble explaining topics through messages? In any case, you can share your screen on the app to start presentations. In our guide below, we’ll show you how to use the screen sharing feature on the Signal desktop app.
In Signal, users can start video calls with their friends through group or private chats on the app. These calls have end-to-end encryption, so you don’t have to worry about the privacy of your conversations.
During calls on the desktop app, users can share their screens with other people in the room. They can show a specific window or their entire screen while sharing.
Here’s our guide about sharing your screen on the Signal app.
How to share your screen during your Signal calls
If you want to show something to your call participants on Signal, you can opt to share your screen. As long as no one else is sharing their screen, you can use this feature whenever you want.
You can share your screen during calls on the Signal desktop app. Follow our quick tutorial below to learn how.
On your computer:
- Open the Signal desktop app and link your account by scanning the QR code on the screen.
- Go to the group or private chat where you want to share your screen.
- Tap the video call option on the right side of the conversation header.
- Tap the share button at the bottom of the screen.
- Choose your entire screen or one of your windows and select the Start sharing option on the bottom right.
That’s how you share your screen on Signal. If you want to end your screen sharing, click the stop button at the top of your screen.
Please note that you can only start sharing your screen if no one else in the call is sharing their screen. Also, your video feed won’t appear during the call while sharing.
Unfortunately, there’s no screen-sharing option on the Signal mobile app at the moment. If they ever update and add the feature on the mobile app in the future, we’ll keep you posted.
To wrap it all up
Now that you know how to share your screen on Signal, you can start presentations with your friends and contacts without worrying about the privacy and safety of your data. Always remember that there’s no need for you to be the host to use the screen sharing feature.
