Maybe you want to be able to troubleshoot an issue with your mobile app, share a presentation on the go, or provide virtual training for a mobile-specific use case. Whatever the specific needs for your business, mobile screen sharing is the solution.
Being able to share your screen doesn’t just have to apply to desktop anymore because business no longer applies to just desktop.
As more and more users interact with your brand through their phone, either on apps or your mobile site, your team members are using their smartphone for business more and more, too.
Not a problem—with mobile screen sharing, you’re able to keep everyone on the same page, identify issues on mobile, or just lead a meeting from anywhere.
About Mobile Sharing and Companion Experiences for Microsoft Teams Meetings
Our devices should work together as flexibly as we do. Video meetings traditionally limit each person to one device at a time, but many meeting tasks would be easier with two. In Microsoft Teams you can now use your computer and phone together in meetings, without conflict, for more flexible communication, sharing, and control. You can use Companion Experiences to solve lots of everyday video meeting problems.
Remote users can feel left out when physical surroundings can’t be seen clearly from a computer or room camera. In a Teams meeting, just join your phone as a companion and you can present live mobile video or a photo. Whatever you are presenting from your phone will be shown on your computer the same way everyone else sees it.
It can be difficult to present an app on your phone or content that is only on your phone to a meeting. In a Teams meeting, just join your phone as a companion and you can present your phone screen. In fact, you could start a meeting without remote participants and just use this feature to project your phone to the room.
If you want to remote control PowerPoint so that you can move around while talking, this has previously required using multiple systems (e.g. a videoconferencing solution and PowerPoint on both desktop and mobile, or a videoconferencing solution, PowerPoint on desktop, and a dedicated remote control).
In a Teams meeting you can do it all in one. Start PowerPoint on your computer and control it from your phone. As with presenting your phone screen, you could just start a meeting without remote participants to use this for local presenting. As an added bonus, if anyone else does join the meeting, they can also independently review your deck and request to take control. This can be great for Q&A sessions, or a way around the time-lags between presenters. Combine your decks in Teams and then each presenter can take control when they need to.
Finally, if you’re coming into or leaving work, changing your meeting between your phone and your computer can be difficult. It often involves hanging up one device to switch to the other. In a Teams meeting with your phone joined as a companion, you can toggle your video, speaker, and microphone between computer and phone – in any combination, so you can seamlessly move between devices.
