Screen Sharing Support Lands in the Embed API - Gruveo

Screen Sharing Support Lands in the Embed API

Gruveo developers, rejoice! The Gruveo Embed API now supports outgoing screen sharing in Chrome and Firefox on desktop. In Chrome, the user will be prompted to install the Gruveo Screen Sharing extension when turning on the screen sharing for the first time. In Firefox, no extension installation is necessary.

To provide access to this new functionality, we have added the new screenSharingAvailability event to the API, as well as extended the existing embed.toggleVideo() method and the streamStateChange event. Please refer to the JavaScript API Reference for details. We have also updated our Basic Demo to provide an example of how you can access the screen sharing functionality through the Embed API.

The screen sharing feature is available to all Embed API users immediately. Like before, displaying incoming screen sharing streams is available on all platforms supported by the Embed API.
