In a community post Microsoft announce the feature is coming to both iOS and Android devices.

Microsoft's messaging app Skype looks like it's getting another friendly face in an upcoming version - yours! As it stands, the added features will enable users to share anything on their phone displays to whoever they're engaged in a video call with.

That's why it is bringing screen sharing to its official Skype apps for Android and iOS.

Screen-sharing, which allows Skype users to look at the same computer screen and collaborate without being in the same room, is being tested by Skype for a mobile release. 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.

Samsung Galaxy A80 Comes With a Unique Rotating Camera Module
If you can remember Oppo N11 handset which has a manual rotating camera module on that time but didn't get that much of response. On the front side, the phone comes with a 32 MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture housed inside the notch.

The new screen sharing feature will allow you to share your screen with the person on the other side of the call.

Skype is likely envisioning this feature to be more useful for its business consumers, who may not want to make the switch to Skype for Business, especially as rival apps like Cisco WebEx, Zoom and GoTo Meeting sport a similar functionality, but aren't as user-friendly or ubiquitous as Skype is. By using the Screen Recording button, users will be able to enable this feature.

Last February, Skype launched a new feature to blur your room during video calls. The feature is definitely promising and very useful so we can expect it to see it on the stable version soon. Instead as said earlier, the latest Skype Preview has it, which is in case you don't know what Skype Preview is, let's elucidate.
