In the age of remote work, Google Meet, the teleconferencing tool from Google, offers businesses and teams a reliable option outside of industry leader Zoom .

Among its many features, Google Meet gives you the ability to virtually share your screen with other people in the meeting. This way, your team members can see the documents, presentations, spreadsheets, or webpages you’re looking at for easier collaboration. 

If you’re using Google Meet on a computer, you can share your entire screen or a specific window or tab. On a mobile device, you can only share your entire screen. Here’s how to do it all.
