Share your screen in FaceTime on your iPhone or iPad

Here's what everyone needs


Share your screen

  1. Start a FaceTime call.

Everyone can see what's on your screen until you stop sharing, but they can't control anything on your device. If you get any notifications while sharing your screen, others won't be able to see them.

When you're sharing your screen, others won't be able to see content that requires a subscription, a free trial, or a purchase or rental to view. With SharePlay, you can watch video together, listen to music together, or work out together by sharing content through supported apps.
