How to access screen sharing feature

This WhatsApp screen-sharing feature is represented by an icon of a phone with an arrow pointing out. This icon appears at the bottom of the phone screen during a video call. There are other icons with this icon like switching cameras, muting, and disabling video. If you want to share your screen, then click the new icon, after clicking the icon a new pop-up will appear, asking if you want to “Start recording or casting with WhatsApp?” There will be a disclaimer that the company will access all the information displayed on the screen. If you have no problem with that then click “Start Now”. You can control the screen sharing during the call. You can stop sharing at any time during the call.
