The feature is already available to the public, in case the new functionality is not available on your device, you can update your app to the newest version from the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, or Microsoft Store on Windows.

Similar to other video communication services like Google Meet or Zoom, you can make a video call and use the broadcast screen option to share your screen. Desktop users get an option to choose the window they would like to share over the video call, but there’s no such thing for smartphone users.
