The latest update to Google Duo (v34) introduces the long-awaited screen sharing feature. Now you'll be able to offer tech support to your parents and friends anywhere
and at any time?
Ain't that just great?
To start screen sharing, all you need to do is tap on the screen during a Duo call and select the new screen sharing icon. Unfortunately, the feature seems to be quite buggy right now, for some users at least. Android Police reports that in their tests, they only managed to get a static image of the caller's screen through to the recipient's phone.
When it works, screen sharing marks the area of your screen that's being cast over to the other side with red borders. You can also pause or stop sharing your screen at any moment. If you can't wait to get your hands on the new feature, however buggy it may be, update Google Duo to v34.
