How to screen share during a Telegram video call

Sometimes, words just aren’t enough. Whether you’re explaining a tricky concept, showcasing a new project, or simply watching a video together, screen sharing during a Telegram video call can elevate your conversation and bring you closer. Here’s how to do it on both mobile and desktop:

Mobile App:

  1. Start a video call: Open a chat with the person you want to share your screen with, tap the video call icon, and wait for them to join.
  2. Tap the three dots: Once you’re connected, look for the three vertical dots in the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Go for “Share Screen”: Tap on those dots to reveal a menu, and then select “Share Screen” to initiate the sharing process.
  4. Choose what to share: You’ll be given two options: “Entire Screen” or “Specific Window.” The first shares everything on your device, while the second lets you pick the exact app or window you want to show. Choose wisely!
  5. Start broadcasting: Tap “Start Broadcast” to begin sharing your screen. Your call partner will now see what you see, in real-time!
  6. End when you’re done: To stop sharing and return to the regular video call, tap the “Stop Broadcast” icon (the stop sign in the top right corner).

Desktop App:

  1. Initiate a video call: Click on the username or group name you want to call, find the “Video Call” option, and click on it.
  2. Hover over the camera icon: Once you’re on the call, locate the camera icon in the bottom right corner and hover your mouse over it.
  3. Select “Share Screen”: A menu will pop up. Choose “Share Screen” to open the sharing options.
  4. Pick your source: Similar to the mobile app, you can choose to share your “Entire Screen” or a specific “Window.” Select the one you want to share with your call partner.
  5. Share and stop: Click “Share Screen” to begin and “Stop Sharing” to return to the normal video call when you’re finished.
