WhatsApp has introduced a new screen-sharing feature to enhance the video calling experience on its platform.


Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, announced the latest feature in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

The new feature will allow users to share documents, photos, and even their shopping cart with contacts available on video calls.

“We are thrilled to introduce the ability to share your screen during WhatsApp video calls,” Zuckerberg said.


In a statement, AT3 Resources, a consulting firm overseeing Meta’s operations in Nigeria, highlighted the versatility of the feature for both personal and professional contexts.

The company said users can now utilise landscape mode on smartphones during video calls.

The statement added that the new feature will help to enhance the visual and sharing experience and create a more immersive interaction.


“This feature is particularly useful for both personal and professional scenarios,” the statement reads.

“Also, WhatsApp users can now enjoy video calls in landscape mode on smartphones.

“This enhancement offers a wider and more immersive viewing and sharing experience during video calls.”

The new feature not only positions itself against traditional video conferencing apps like Microsoft Meet, Google Meet, and Zoom but also competes with Apple’s FaceTime.


Last month, WhatsApp introduced an instant video messaging feature.

The chat locking feature was unveiled in June, offering users an additional layer of privacy and security.
