Embed CoScreen Into Your Workflow

Whether you’re WFH in times of crisis, for the day or as a permanent remote employee, coscreen with your colleagues to get work done more efficiently than ever.

1. Jump into CoScreen

Launch the CoScreen desktop app from Slack or leave it on all the time. It's currently  available for macOS, Windows & Linux Support will follow soon.

2. Drag + Drop = Share

You share your application windows with your teammates by drag and drop to your extended screen. And the best part, your colleagues can do the same at the same time and it also works with just a single display.

3. Collaborate & Get Things Done

While having a shared team desktop is the foundation for truly natural remote collaboration, CoScreen includes built-in audio chat, too. Simply unmute yourself and you're talking.

Remote collaboration for engineers is not only about sharing your code

Collaborative IDEs are helpful tools for programmers. But you often need to collaborate on much more than code, e.g. on emulators, command line tools and issue management systems. CoScreen enables you to collaborate across all of them and also any other desktop applications.

This illustration was inspired by Clemens Mewald's presentation at the TensorFlow Dev Summit 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

Using is CoScreen is easy. Let's answer a few questions you might have before you get started.

I'd like to use CoScreen, where do I begin?

CoScreen is currently available on Apple macOS, Microsoft Windows (download here) and soon also on other platforms (request access). If you want to learn how the best teams use CoScreen, read more here.

Is CoScreen available on macOS, Windows, Linux, Mobile, or Web?

macOS: yes (download - requires macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and above)
Windows: yes (download- requires Windows 10 and above)
Linux, Mobile, Web: coming soon, sign up for the wait list

This sounds like voodoo, how exactly does it work?

We're combining collaborative computing principles which were pioneered by Doug Engelbart & team in the 1960s with remote desktop features, custom high performance video streaming and last but not least our secret sauce to negotiate individually what each user sees and controls.

CoScreen is build on a highly intuitive concept yet getting it right was a long journey requiring us to build dozens of individual prototypes. But now you can collaborate with your peers without being disrupted in your work.

Pricing: How much does CoScreen cost?

CoScreen is free during the beta phase. But also beyond that we will make sure that there is always an affordable tier for small teams and individuals. Please reach out to us if you have specific questions e.g. regarding enterprise pricing.

Is CoScreen secure?

Handling your data safely and securely is our top priority. CoScreen gives you more control of what you share than other tools. It uses P2P whenever there are only two participants that can connect directly.

Otherwise it leverages an enterprise-grade, open source video infrastructure (Jitsi) with thousands of servers around the globe which encrypts all video data using DTLS-SRTP, is also HIPAA compatible and in addition, we are planning to release end-to-end encryption in the mid-term.
