Discord has become a rather popular communications platform for a lot of people from different walks of life. An application that started as a gamer exclusive chat program has now evolved into a much more sophisticated communications platform that can now be used for anything. 

One of Discord’s special features on the PC app is the ability to stream your screen in a voice chat. This feature has now trickled down into the phone app as well, and users can stream their phone’s screen in Discord’s voice chats without a hiccup.

In this article, we’re taking a look at how you can share your screen on the Discord app.
