Key Things to Remember

  • The video feeds of call members appear below shared content during a screen-sharing session.
  • Information displayed on your shared screen, including usernames and passwords, is visible to the person you're sharing with.
  • Screen sharing is not available during audio calls.
  • Audio is not available for shared content, such as YouTube, Netflix, or video games.
  • Screen sharing is protected with end-to-end encryption and is never recorded by WhatsApp. Only those in the call can view or hear the shared screen content.
  • For the optimal experience, ensure you have the latest version of WhatsApp installed. If other participants are using an older version, an onscreen prompt will guide them to update before engaging in screen sharing.
