Zoom in on Screen Share and Video Calls

Zoom in on video calls

Have you ever wished you could more easily follow an important presentation on your mobile device? In our last blog post, we described a variety of improvements to boost productivity on Wire conference calls. Another highly requested feature is being able to zoom in during conference calls with screen sharing or video enabled.

Especially when following a presentation or similar content on a smartphone or device with a small screen, it can be very challenging to identify the details in the screen share or video stream. With our latest Wire releases for iOS and Android, it is now possible to zoom in and out of received screen share and video calls for both conference and 1:1 calls. This makes your portable device a true replacement for your desktop or laptop screen.

To start zooming into any received screen share or video, the tile of the participant first has to be maximized with a double-tap. Then you can zoom in or out of the picture with a two-finger pinch. At the same time, the picture also can be moved around with 2 fingers to maximize the most important content. This way, you decide what to look at and with what level of detail. Another double-tap will reset the whole view and you can start from scratch or look at another participant’s shared screen or video.

We hope you will enjoy the new feature as much as we do. What else you think is missing to make Wire Conferencing even more productive?
