How Do I Share My Screen During a Call?

Last Updated: Apr 26, 2018 02:40AM PDT

Our FreeConference.com screen sharing service works right inside your browser using WebRTC technology. There is nothing to download and no need for your participants to register anywhere in order to view your screen or shared documents.

**Please note that our screen sharing service is optimized for Chrome - you are only able to SHARE your screen using Google CHROME or our Desktop App for Windows or Mac. Your participants will also require Chrome. Currently, screen sharing is not available on smart phone or tablet devices.**

 

To share your screen during a video call, simply click on the 'SHARE' button at the top right of your Online Meeting Room during a video call. (If you need help starting a video call, please visit the following support page: https://hello-support.freeconference.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2102434-how-do-i-start-my-video-conference-call-
 

The first time you do this a message will pop up asking you to add 'FreeConference Screen Sharing' - click on 'Add Extension' and continue. If you didn't see the pop up message, simply click on the link below and follow the instructions: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/freeconference-screen-sha/acpjkkfchioajabmoedekiboendgaccf  

 

After installing the extension you will see a small puffin at the top right of your browser window. You will now be able to share your screen.




 


After selecting 'Share' you will then have the option to choose which window or application you wish to share. Simply click on the content you wish to share with your participants and this will then be displayed in place of your video image. It is also possible to upload a document via the chat box on the right hand side.
