WhatsApp Rolls Out Screen Sharing Beta For Android

The new feature mimics video-call platforms like Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

WhatsApp is in the process of rolling out a screen-sharing feature to enable recording and displaying the contents of your screen with the person on the other end of a video call.

The feature is represented by a phone icon with an arrow pointing from it. It sits alongside existing tools, including switching cameras, muting, and disabling video that appear at the bottom of the screen in WhatsApp calls.

Clicking the new button reveals a prompt asking the user if they want to “Start recording or casting with WhatsApp?” If they agree, tapping “Start now” will begin recording, which can be stopped anytime during the call.

Only select Android beta testers can currently access the new screen-sharing feature, though the update should roll out to more users over the coming weeks. However, older Android models and those who haven’t downloaded the latest version of the app may not get the feature at all.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
