Overview

The Pexip Web App allows you to join a conference without needing to download any software, and also provides a number of features that can be used during your conference.

To start sharing your screen, simply click the “Share my screen” button in the main toolbar. You’ll then be asked to select which window or application you’d like to share. Once you’ve made your selection, your screen will be shared with all other participants in the conference.

If you need to stop sharing your screen at any time, just click the “Stop sharing” button in the toolbar. Your screen will then go blank and all other participants will no longer be able to see what you’re doing.

Pexip also offers a number of features that can be used while screen sharing. For example, you can annotate your screen to draw attention to specific items, or use the laser pointer to highlight items on your screen. To access these features, simply click the “More” button in the toolbar and then select the “Annotations” or “Laser pointer” option.
