How To Screen Share On Discord | Easy Steps | 2021

Over the years, Discord has evolved from a simple voice chat tool for gamers to something more. One of the most useful features in Discord that it now offers for free, albeit in a limited scale, is the Screen Share feature. In this article, we’ll explain what Screen Share is and how to use it on your device.

What is Discord Screen Share?

Screen Share is a feature in Discord that, as the name suggests,  lets you share your screen to your friends and strangers in a voice channel or in a private room. It’s a feature with lots of potential and not just for gaming. While you can definitely use it to ask help from your friends in your games, or share what your current screen looks like, others use Screen Share for telecommuting. 

At this time, only a maximum of 50 viewers and 1 broadcaster can watch and stream in a single session of Screen Share. If your channel is bigger, you’ll have to either split up the group, or find other means.
