Have you thought about sharing your Android screen with a computer, but found no viable solution without a cable or lengthy download? With this simple tutorial, we’ll show how you can share your smartphone screen with a PC quickly and easily.
What purpose does this solution serve?
Perhaps you need to show a presentation but forgot the charging cable to connect to your computer? Or you might want to show something to a colleague but feel too lazy to get up? Fear not: ScreenMeet has arrived.
This app lets you share content displayed on your Android device with anyone who has access to a browser, even up to five people simultaneously. The app is paid, but you can try it out for 30 days.
If you’d like to share your screen with a larger number of people (say, more than 50), ScreenMeet offers a number of packages. You can also personalize the experience with your own URL and password protection to pair your Android with any other device.
How does this app work?
ScreenMeet is very simple. First, download the app on your device to get started. Create an account with your name, email and password, or use your Google+ account (i.e. your Gmail account).
Once you are registered, a screen with a link "screenmeet.com/(your name)" will appear. You can then drop this link into a browser or share it with colleagues. In the browser, you can now view any screen that is showing on your device. You can check the counter to see how many people are at your link and viewing the screen you are sharing.
You can also choose which applications you want to share, such as a Waze map, or a presentation in Google Drive. Or pause the sharing at any time in case you want to skip a screen without anyone else seeing it. You could also stop the presentation whenever you want to. Lastly, set a password to keep your link secure, or ask guests to register so as to track who is viewing it.
The best thing about ScreenMeet is that there is no need to download extra software. Just punch in a link and in seconds you’ll be sharing all you want.
Is ScreenMeet compatible with all Android versions?
ScreenMeet is compatible with Android versions greater than 5.0, Windows 32-bit and 64-bit and 64-bit Mac OSX.
