Screen sharing is a useful feature that lets you show your screen to another person, such as when you want to demonstrate something, troubleshoot a problem, or collaborate on a project. WhatsApp brought this feature to the latest Windows 11 desktops. Hence, in this guide, we will show you the steps to use WhatsApp screen sharing on Windows 11.
How to Share Your WhatsApp Screen on Windows 11?
Using the WhatsApp desktop app you can share your screen on your Windows 11 PC, and here’s how you can do it:

- Also, you can start a new chat by clicking on the New Chat icon in the top left corner of the app.
- Click on the Call icon in the top right corner of the chat window. This will initiate a voice or video call with your contact or group.
