Online meetings can be held anytime, anywhere, thanks to video conferencing that has become such a cornerstone in how we communicate in business.

Easy-to-use, interactive, and highly visual, screen sharing has quickly become one of the most utilized online collaboration tools for business and education. In today’s blog, we’ll take a look at some of the most practical applications for screen sharing and why it has become increasingly adopted by conference call service users.
