Brosix Screenshare solution

Go back in time 10 or 15 years and you probably remember how difficult it was to share information in a fast, efficient, and effective manner. This was particularly true if you were trying to explain something on your computer screen.

While technology has come a long way, it goes without saying that some tools are more valuable than others. And that’s what we want to talk about today.

Screen sharing is one of the most valuable tools offered by Brosix, as this gives you the opportunity to share your screen with anybody in your network. Does it get any better than that?

Forget about meeting in person so that both parties can see the screen. Forget about jumping on a phone call and hoping for the best. Instead, with this feature, you can easily share your screen without any wasted time or money.

The Benefits of Brosix screen share feature

If you’re finding it difficult to fully grasp the benefits of screen sharing, you aren’t alone. Fortunately, it only takes a few points to realize that this could be something that helps you take your business to the next level. Consider the following:

  • The power to share your screen, and whatever is on it, with your connections. All you have to do is launch the feature (more in this below) and let Brosix do the rest.
  • Save time. Even if you’re sharing a screen with somebody in the office next door, the ability to do so can save you plenty of time. Why call somebody into your office when you don’t have to?
  • With screen sharing, it’s convenient to show somebody else exactly what you are looking at. Even better, while they are viewing your screen, they can complete tasks on their end with your direction.

While these are some of the top benefits of screen sharing, you won’t truly understand everything about this feature until you give it a try.

Getting Started

Brosix screen sharing is easy to use, no matter if you’re connecting with a colleague, prospect, client, or a friend.

First things first, send a request for him or her to view your screen. From there, decide on the type of screen sharing session:

  • Send your screen to a contact.
  • Send your screen to a contact and give the person permission to work with your mouse and keyboard.
  • View your contact’s screen.
  • View your contact’s screen with the option to control his or her mouse and keyboard.

In simpler terms, here are the three things you must do to get started:

  • Select a name from your contact list.
  • Click on the “desktop sharing” icon located on the right side of your screen.
  • Select the type of session (see above).

From there you can instantly connect with the other party, thus finding yourself screen sharing in no time at all.

Why Brosix Screen Sharing is Best

We are well aware of the fact that other instant messaging applications provide this feature, however, there are two reasons why Brosix is the best of the best:

  • It is 100 percent free. It doesn’t matter how long or how often you use the feature, it will never cost you additional money.
  • Ease of use. It only takes a couple clicks and a few seconds to start a screen sharing session.

Screen Sharing Examples

By now, you understand the many benefits of screen sharing. However, you may still have some questions about when this makes sense to use. Consider these circumstances:

  • You are having a technical issue and you need your IT department to take control of your screen.
  • You want to teach a coworker how to use a particular piece of software.
  • You want to share a piece of content or idea with a prospect or client.

While these are three times when screen sharing could come in handy, there are thousands upon thousands of situations in which it can work in your favor.


Now that you understand the ins and outs of screen sharing, now that you know how it works, it’s time to give it a try.
