WhatsApp gets screen sharing feature in video calls


According to news outlet WABetaInfo, WhatsApp now provides the ability to share the screen during a video call. This will show you a notification asking you to allow the app to start recording or broadcasting, and then you can share your screen. Accordingly, the screen sharing feature means that WhatsApp will have access to all the information visible on your screen: “WhatsApp will have access to all the information visible on your screen or played from your device while recording or broadcasting. Including passwords, payment details, photos, messages, and the sound you play.” This means that if you decide to share your screen, you will have to be very careful, because no one can really guarantee that your sensitive data will not fall into the wrong hands.

It’s also worth clarifying that the screen sharing feature is only available in WhatsApp for Android 2.23.11.19 beta. To enable this feature, simply make a video call to someone and click on the new button in the lower right corner. The problem with this solution is that not all users will agree to show content in an application that is far from the most secure on the market. There have been repeated problems associated with the “wiretapping” of user messages by messengers, and in the case of credit card data, for example, this is especially important.
