Screenshare During a Meeting

Anyone can share their screen during a meeting. To start screen share, select Share on the meeting toolbar. On the desktop app, you can choose to share either a screen or an application. On the mobile app, you share your whole screen. Enabling Do Not Disturb on your phone is recommended to prevent unexpected notifications.

Zoom In on Shared Screen

Looking at a screen that's too small? You can zoom in. On the desktop app, use the +/-/Reset buttons next to the presenter's name in the bottom left of the screen. Alternatively, desktop users can use a mouse or trackpad to zoom in and out.

Desktop (Windows and Mac)

To start sharing:

  1. Select Share in the meeting toolbar.

    On Mac, if this is your first time to share screen on this device, the Cymbus app asks for a permission to allow your screen to be shared. Select Open System Preferences to grant the Screen Recording permission. The dialog says your screen will be recorded; however, for Cymbus meetings, your screen will be only shared to other participants, and it will not be recorded.

  2. Double-click a screen or application to share. The meeting window shrinks to a pop-up. The header in the pop-up indicates which screen or application you are sharing.
