Help! I'm having trouble with Vowel's Screen share

  1. Check System preferences and make sure sharing is enabled

  • Security & Privacy >> Screen Recording

  • Check the checkbox next to Google Chrome to allow screen sharing

2. Make sure your browser is updated (might need a restart)

If you see an update button in the top right corner of your browser you need to update for screen share to work properly.

  • Note: We also show a banner in Vowel to alert you of an update needed.

3. When sharing a window or tab ensure it is "active"

  • It might take a moment for your computer to register the window/tab

  • If it is still not showing up you must ensure the window or tab is "Active" (this means you need to actually select the window or tab you wish to share)
