Audio and video calling, text chat and screen sharing—these ultra cool features are coming to your IDE in CodeTogether 5. The release is just a couple of weeks away, but we couldn’t wait any longer to tell you about the extensive communication features coming your way!
While many of our users prefer to use their existing communication solutions, many others have shared that they’d prefer an integrated approach. What about screen sharing? A code focused solution like CodeTogether makes that unnecessary for coding, but there are times when you need to work together on non-text editors, or perhaps a desktop application. In situations like this, an integrated screen sharing solution comes in handy.
If you haven’t already tried CodeTogether, no need to wait for 5—download CodeTogether now!
How Does It Work?
Just flip a switch, that’s pretty much all you need to do. Anyone in the session is free to start the call, not just the host, and all participants can jump in and out of the call at will, throughout the session. Here it is in action.
The call is managed in a browser tab, giving you access to the following capabilities:
- Audio calling
- Video calling (share webcam)
- Screen sharing (share entire screen or specific application)
- Text chat
- A/V reactions
