One of our popular volley types on the desktop app is a screen recording volley. While we are working on the functionality to be able to see your screen and your face at the same time on a screen recording volley, we aren't quite there yet. But, dust off your old friend Zoom to get this to work in the meantime :) 

  1. Open Zoom
  2. Start a meeting
  3. Enter minimal mode (minimize window or cmd/ctrl+shift+m)
  4. Move the window where you want it to appear on your screen

Bonus for Mac Users:

You can use QuickTime Player to accomplish the same thing.

  1. Open QuickTime Player (which comes pre-installed on all Macs)
  2. From the menu bar select File > New Movie Recording (⌥⌘N)
  3. Go back to the menu bar and select View > Float on Top
  4. Move the window where you want it to appear on your screen

Bonus X2: Zooming while screen sharing

  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Select "Accessibility"
  3. Select "Zoom" from the side column
  4. Check the option to "Use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom"

Now, while holding the modifier key (Control by default), you can use the scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom in and out of your screen

Note: The zoom and PiP feature will only work when you are sharing your entire screen
