Google Duo has offered a built-in screen share feature for about three months in 2018 on Android. Rumors said that the work has been spotted on this feature again this June. However, Google finally today officially announced that this screen share feature is coming back to Google Duo on Android.
The feature has been introduced during the new Apple event via @MadebyGoogle. A Pixel 4A is used to demonstrate this straightforward capability, with Google positioning it as a way to “share more moments with your friends”. With this screen share feature, you can now browse photos and videos together, and plan activities all while on a video call on Google Duo.
Working on this feature:-
Google did not reveal the UI for accessing this screen share feature on Google Duo currently. But there will probably be a screen-sharing button in the overflow menu. And once enabled, the sharer will be able to navigate their phone and show off anything on their mobile to the recipient.
The recipient will be able to see the other person’s screen feed in place of their camera stream while retaining their own preview in the bottom-left corner. But, initiating a share will probably be limited to Android, however, iOS and web users can receive the stream.
At present this feature is not yet live and will be implemented shortly. It has been not clarified whether a new version is required or whether this will be provided as a server-side update. However, after this feature has been launched, the users can be able to share their mobile screens. With just only one click and this will help the users for sure. This feature might also have a chance to be implemented to iOS and web users. In order to enable them also to share their screens.
