The official launch of screen sharing in Google Duo is finally here, after a leak revealing it to be in development last October! Now that the Google Duo v34 is here, officially bringing the feature, it appears entirely broken, much to the dismay of the users and developers.

The setup process is working normally and as expected. The screen sharing button is closest to the floating mirror button. Tapping the screen will get you there if the extra buttons are not visible.

Now, after tapping the screen sharing button, it will prompt you to allow Duo to record your screen. On the home screen, you’ll get to see the part of the screen that’s recording outlined in red. There will also be a floating pill with pause and stop buttons on.

From this point, you get to use your phone normally, and the screen will be sent to the person you are chatting with. That is, only if the screen sharing feature was not broken!

Rather, the receiver will see the image from the sharer as frozen. Switching camera angles did not work. Even the receiver ending the screen sharing session went in vain. The image gets unfrozen only when the call is ended.

This was tested with several phones and over different Android versions. Data was cleared in every scenario, and similar results still occurred. The freezing issue should be fixed in the next update of Google Duo, or at least we can hope for it!
