The screenshots shared by Microsoft note that everything is displayed on your screen, including existing and newly incoming notifications, will be shared with others while using the screen sharing feature.

Microsoft is leaving no stone unturned to make is video calling service Skype better. Its absence on bigger platforms has allowed smaller apps that offer mobile screen sharing, like Squad, to fill the void. Unfortunately, most devices don't have a built-in screen sharing option, and only a handful of messaging apps let you do that seamlessly. The feature will allow you to share your screen with the person on the other side to collaborate on presentations, shop online with friends or even share swipes on dating sites. Considering that this feature moved from beta to the stable build in just a month, we can hope screen-sharing goes live in a similar duration as well.

As such Microsoft is trying to bake in more features that bring the desktop and mobile experience closer together, hence its recent announcement that beta testers of the app are now testing a screen sharing function on both iOS and Android. Microsoft which is more concentrating towards small businesses and consumers with this new feature catches up to more business motivated apps like Zoom, Cisco WebEx and GoTo Meeting.

The Screen Sharing feature is now included in the Skype Beta app for the iOS devices.

Background blur for Skype is available on desktop, the web and mobile; but you need the latest version of the app/software to start using it. You can definitely find a lot of reasons for which this new feature will turn out useful.
