How to share your screen and video from webcam at the same time
You can send both your webcam stream and a Go Live stream at the same time. To do so, launch the stream as shown above and click the Video button at the bottom-left corner of the program’s window.
How to share your screen with sound
Discord gives you two ways of sharing your screen activity: streaming the screen image or streaming a specific window. If you stream the screen itself, the stream will lack the system audio. So, to stream with sound, you need to stay in the Applications tab and choose an appropriate window from it.
How to mute and unmute your microphone while sharing the screen
As you are effectively on a call in most of the screen sharing scenarios, you can use the Microphone icon at the bottom-left corner of the microphone icon. Pressing it mutes and unmutes the sound. This is how the app works on Windows 10, macOS, and Linux. On a smartphone, you’ll find the icon at the bottom of the screen.
How to stop sharing
To stop sharing, just click the Stop Streaming button right above the user panel on the desktop version and at the center of the screen on a mobile device.
How to change the layout while streaming
While streaming, in the top right corner you will see the Layout icon at the top right part of the screen, which allows you to switch between Focus and Grid. The Focus mode uses one screen as the main visual, while the Grid mode makes all the screen feeds the same size.
Tips on screen sharing
Frequently asked questions
Why can't I share my screen on Discord?
It could be that you have not been given sharing permissions within Discord, which means that you are not able to share your screen with others. Of course, it could also be a technical issue with sharing, and some apps and programs block screen sharing.
Do I need screen share permissions?
It is possible that you need to share permissions to use your microphone or to share from a certain source. Also, admins of groups on Discord must share permissions within Server settings > Roles. Here, you can find the Video permissions setting that you can enable or disable for each user.
