eyeson has now improved capabilities of sharing screens, a browser tab or any open application within a video meeting

Activating screen sharing is simple: just click on the presentation button and afterwards on the "Start screen instead of own video":


This feature is supported on all desktop browsers (Windows, macOS, ChromeOS, Linux), but not on mobile devices (iPadOS, iOS, Android).
