Today, we will learn how to screenshare on Mac Facetime. Screensharing can be incredibly useful when you want to share your screen with someone during a Facetime call. Whether you need to give a presentation or troubleshoot technical issues, screensharing on Mac Facetime is a handy feature to have.

Step 1: Start a Facetime Call

To begin, launch the Facetime app on your Mac and initiate a call with the person you want to screenshare with. You can do this by searching for their name in the Contacts app and clicking on the video icon next to their name.

Step 2: Enable Screensharing

Once the call is connected, locate the controls at the bottom of the Facetime window. Look for the “Screen Share” button and click on it. This will prompt a menu with options for screensharing.

Step 3: Choose What to Share

After clicking on “Screen Share,” you will be presented with two options: “Share Your Screen” or “Share a Window. “

  • Share Your Screen: This option allows you to share your entire screen with the person on the other end of the call.

    It’s perfect for giving presentations or demonstrating how-to steps.

  • Share a Window: If you only want to show a specific application or window, choose this option. You will then be able to select which window or application you want to share.
Step 4: Start Screensharing

Once you’ve selected whether to share your entire screen or just a window, click on “Start Screenshare.” This action will begin sharing your screen with the person on the other end of the call.

Step 5: Control Screensharing

While screensharing, you have a few control options available to you:

  • Mute Audio: If you don’t want the audio from your Mac to be transmitted during screensharing, click on the microphone icon in the Facetime window to mute it.
  • Pause Video: Similarly, if you need to temporarily pause the video transmission, click on the camera icon in the Facetime window. This will freeze your video until you choose to resume.
  • Stop Screenshare: To stop screensharing altogether, click on the “Stop Screenshare” button located at the bottom of the Facetime window. This will return you to a regular video call.

In Conclusion

Screensharing on Mac Facetime is a powerful feature that allows you to share your screen with others during a video call. Whether it’s for work or personal use, knowing how to screenshare can greatly enhance your communication and collaboration capabilities. Remember these steps whenever you need to screenshare using Facetime on your Mac!
