Share Content

8x8 Virtual Office Meetings allows you to enhance and streamline your meeting experience by sharing content from your desktop, or using the Whiteboard to brainstorm your ideas. The collaborative nature of Virtual Office Meetings leaves content sharing open to all participants, rather than just the host.

Meeting hosts can stop other participants from sharing content, and can record shared content for future reference.


When you click the Share Content icon in the meeting controls, a window appears, allowing you to share your entire desktop, an application, or a virtual whiteboard. During content sharing, all your on-screen actions in the shared area are captured and transmitted live to other meeting participants.

To share screen content:

While in a meeting, click the Share Content icon.

  2. Click the Stop Content Sharing icon that pops up. The chosen participant's content sharing is stopped.
