With the release of Fuze 6.20, we introduced the ability for users to screen share during a one-on-one chat conversation. Users with meetings permissions enabled can quickly and easily share their screen without having to start a call or a meeting. This new functionality is supported on Fuze Desktop, Fuze Web, and Fuze Mobile (in view-only mode).
While screen sharing from chat, audio and video capabilities are currently not supported. If you need to use audio and video functions, you can start a call or a meeting and initiate screen sharing at any time. For additional information, please refer to Screen Sharing During Calls and Screen Sharing During Meetings.
Review the following screen sharing sections:
- During a chat, click the Screen share button in the chat controls.
