Recall that Skype used to be the main app for communicating with millions of people across the world. Microsoft made it clear Apple's mobile OS would support the feature, so it's probably just a matter of time rather than anything serious.
As of today Android and iOS users can test out the new feature, as long as they are part of Skypes insider program. But a member of the Skype team has told us it should be rolled out in the official version of the app sometime this month if you can wait just a few more weeks. With the latest Insider build, you can now share your screen on your Android or iOS device during a call. You will be able to share anything on your phone display to friends, family, or coworkers. The screenshots shared by Microsoft note that everything is displayed on your screen, including existing and newly incoming notifications, will be shared with others while using the screen sharing feature. With this addition, Skype not only outpaces competitors in the consumer space - such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc. but also catches up with business-grade solutions like Slack (paid versions) or Zoom.
Microsoft is leaving no stone unturned to make is video calling service Skype better.

As it says, you will be able to send a live broadcast of your iOS device screen to other contacts on the video call.
