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.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities.
