What type of content can I screenshare?

The screenshare feature allows you to show your audience content from all over the internet and your phone. It offers an easy and creative way to share visual aids, and engage with your audience on topics that you and they care about. Sharing images or videos enhance the experience as both a broadcaster and viewer. Take advantage and get creative while keeping in mind YouNow's Community Rules & Guidelines. 


Can I guest when I screenshare? How?

Yes, screensharing works just like your regular live stream, you can invite guests by dragging them from the chat or audience onto your video. You can start screensharing while you have guests on your stream and you can add guests after you start screensharing.
