Yay! We removed the requirement to have to have a camera to use screensharing! Just start a call in DMs like normal and the screenshare button should show up.

    I would like to be able to share my screen, but I do not have a camera installed - so i can't?!

    Shouldn't the Screen Sharing and Camera features be separate entities so you can do one without the other.

    "You don't need a camera to screen share. Enter a voice call, and a little screen share button will appear. I agree it needs to be more obvious or apparent, but it's already possible without a camera."

    That`s a terrible Idea, if you don`t have webcam simply the video cam will not work. i don`t understend why you have 747. This has to be a bug =))

    You can simply start a voice call and then press the screenshare button, You do not need to press the video calling button.

    You should try voice call, it does work on that. Tried with a couple of friends and voice call works, it's pretty much video call but voice call isn't turned on.

    My camera has been unplugged every time I screen share and it worked fine. Maybe you are bugged?

    You can already, I don't have a camera and I can still screen-share.

    I have been able to screen share without a camera so far. I wonder if there is something else going on that is preventing your from getting it? I think my settings are normal. At the moment, I am screen sharing with my cousin, who doesn't have access to the video calling, and as long as I call her, we can screen share. She has a Mac, with a built-in camera, and I unplugged mine because I don't use it much.

    I know this doesn't help much, but I have been able to use the screen sharing without a camera (tl:dr).
