WhatsApp, the widely-used messaging app, is reportedly in the process of developing multiple new features aimed at enhancing user experience. Recent online reports indicate that the platform, owned by Meta, is working on a new feature specifically designed to improve the video calling experience for its users.

According to WABetaInfo, a website that monitors updates in WhatsApp’s development, the messaging app is currently introducing a feature that enables users to effortlessly share their screen while engaged in a video call. This functionality is currently accessible to Android beta testers who have installed WhatsApp beta for Android version

WABetaInfo has provided a detailed explanation of how the screen sharing feature in WhatsApp will operate. According to their findings, users will notice a new icon within the call control view, which will serve as a prompt for initiating screen sharing. Once users opt to share their screen, the contents displayed on their own screen will be recorded and transmitted to the recipient.

The report further mentions that users will have complete control over this feature. Even though the transmission of their screen content will be ongoing throughout the video call, they retain the ability to halt the process whenever desired. Moreover, this feature will only be activated if users explicitly provide consent to share the content of their screen.

After updating to WhatsApp beta version on Android, some users may notice minor changes in the layout of the bottom navigation bar. Notably, the order of tabs in the bottom navigation bar has been reorganized. Specifically, certain users may now see the tabs arranged as: Chats, Calls, Communities, and Status.
