Skype Group Screen Sharing Now Free on Windows and Mac

Microsoft Announces Skype Acquisition For 8.5 Billion

Microsoft announced a new feature for Skype on Monday that will certainly help make its client more attractive to everyone. Skype has been offering group screen sharing for a while now, but on Monday it removed the feature from the premium version of Skype and released it to everyone for free. That means you and a group of people, whether it’s some study buddies or co-workers, can all view someone’s shared screen right on a free Skype phone call.

Doing so is rather easy. Once you’re in a call, you can simply tap the “+” ¬†button and choose “share screens.” You’ll have the option to share just a specific window, like your Web browser, or your entire desktop. When you’re finished, simply click “stop sharing.” The feature is available now for anyone running Windows or OS X, though you’ll need to download the latest version of Skype to get started.
