Screenleap Now Available For Android

We are excited to announce the availability of the Screenleap for Android app.

Screenleap App for Android

The Screenleap for Android app allows you to quickly share your screen or your camera to any device with a browser. Sharing is quick & easy: all you need to do is click a button to start sharing your screen or camera in seconds. Your viewers can see your screen or camera from any device with a browser (including PCs, tablets, and smartphones) without having to install any software. All they need to do is click on a link that you give them. To install the Screenleap for Android app, please go to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.screenleap.android.Screenleap from your Android device.

When sharing your screen, you will be able to navigate to any webpage or web-accessible document using the built-in browser. Unlike the Screenleap for iOS app, you can also switch to any of your other apps to share them as well. Once you are done sharing, return to the Screenleap app to end your screen share.

Add Screen Sharing To Your Android app

If you are interested in supporting screen sharing in your Android app, you will be able to start doing so later this year using our MobileSDK. The MobileSDK will allow you to add support for screen sharing to your your app by simply including our MobileSDK library and implementing a few callbacks.

You will be able to add functionality like allowing your customers to share their screens with your support reps to get faster and better support when they are experiencing issues with your app. It can also be used to allow your sales reps to share your apps to prospective customers for sales presentations. Please contact us at support@screenleap.com if you would be interested in participating in the Early Access Program for the MobileSDK.

Next Generation of Screenleap Platform Now Available for API

We are excited to announce that the next generation of the Screenleap Platform is now available for the API. Over the last year, the Screenleap Platform has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to make it faster, more scalable, and more reliable. Please see our previous blog article for more information about the benefits of the new platform.

You can switch your screen shares to use the new platform by adding the “useV2=true” parameter to your request to create a screen share:

POST https://api.screenleap.com/v2/screen-shares?accountid=[account_id]&useV2=true

All API screen shares will default to the new platform starting on September 1st, but we recommend that you update your code to take advantage of the benefits now.

Please contact us at support@screenleap.com if you have any questions.

Screenleap Chrome Extension Now Supports Presenter Swap

We are excited to announce that the Screenleap Chrome extension now supports presenter swap. Previously, only users using the Screenleap for Mac or Screenleap for Windows apps could switch the presenter during a screen share. Now users on Chromebook, Linux, and any operating system that supports the Chrome browser can also take advantage of this useful feature during their screen shares.

Using Presenter Swap

To enable the presenter swap feature, you simply need to sign in before starting your screen share. The viewer who wants to become the new presenter needs to initiate a presenter swap by clicking the “Become presenter” button at the top-right part of the viewer page.

You will be asked if you want to grant the viewer permission to be the new presenter.

If you say yes, the viewer will start sharing his/her screen and you will be redirected to the viewer page so that you will be able to see his/her screen. Viewers who have not previously shared using Screenleap will be first prompted to download and install the presenter app.

Presenter swap cannot be initiated by the presenter because we do not require viewers to sign in before being able to see your screen. As a result, it is not possible for the presenter to select which viewer he/she wants to be the new presenter.

Tell Us About Your Experience

We hope you find the presenter swap feature useful. You can try out the Screenleap Chrome extension by going to the installation page. If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
