Screen share or Window share?

I’m very new to Jami, I’ve used it one day so far.

When I selected the screen share function I was surprised it didn’t give me the option to share a window rather than a whole screen. The ability to share a window as opposed to a screen could save both blushes and bandwidth.


The sharing button has a default action of sharing the screen, but if you click to open the menu
(using the small arrow on top or on the side of the sharing button) you will have the window sharing option if you are using GNU/Linux.

The window sharing option in Windows is currently under review and should be available soon.
In that case you will be able to use share screen area to avoid sharing the whole screen.


Thank you, good to know.

Here’s the progress:
