It seems that Google is now readying all its products to get a new update one by one. Now Google has started to roll out an update for its popular video calling service Google Duo. The new update introduces the much awaited and highly anticipated screen sharing feature. With this new feature, users will be now able to share their screen with others during a video call.
How to use the screen sharing feature in Google Duo:
The use of this new screen sharing feature in Google Duo is very easy. In order to use the screen sharing feature, users will first have to start a video call with another user. After starting the video call user can then tap on the new screen sharing icon available above the microphone mute and front/rear camera toggle. Then the screen sharing can be easily controlled by the user using the pill-shaped pop-up on the top right corner. The pop-up will also allow users to pause and stop screen sharing. Google also has some countermeasures in case of accidental screen sharing. Users will get a pop-up notification from Google which will ask the user if they want to start screen sharing after they tap on the screen sharing button.
However, this new feature seems to be broken. According to some recent reports, the new screen sharing feature does not work as intended. While it will show the caller that their screen is being shared, but the receiver just gets to see a frozen image of the caller. As of now, there has been no official statement from Google regarding the malfunctioning screen sharing feature. However, since the update has just started to roll out, users can expect to hear more from the company in the next few days.
