Share on-screen content in 8x8 Video Meetings

8x8 Video Meetings enables you to enhance your meeting experience by sharing content from your desktop. The collaborative nature of 8x8 Video Meetings leaves content sharing open to all participants.

To share on-screen content in 8x8 Video Meetings:

  1. Click the Share screen icon to open a list of screens and windows that are available for you to share. Depending on your browser if you join via web, you may have the option to share a specific tab rather than your entire browser window. In addition, depending on where you are joining from, you may have the ability to share your system audio with your full screen or browser tab.

    Note: If you are sharing a PowerPoint presentation or similar content, choose to share your entire screen so your slides refresh properly.

  2. Select the desired screen, window, or tab, and confirm. Your actions in the specified area are displayed to everyone in the meeting until you stop sharing by toggling the Share screen icon off.
