Desktop sharing in Gtalk, Yahoo, Skype,MSN, AIM and ICQ

How to share desktop in Gtalk, Yahoo, Skype, MSN, AIM and ICQ?

This is most common question on many of the Internet user's /chatters tongue in most recent times. I too got the same, number of times and here is the solution I found. The solution is very simple; we need to have very useful, light weight and FREE tools on our systems to be peaceful.

Those are Unyte, Yuuguu and Unyte Lyte.

The IBM Lotus Sametime Unyte Share service is a quick and easy way to bring people and information together online. Use the Lotus Sametime Unyte Share service to show your desktop or share documents and applications with anyone, anytime, anywhere.

How to use?
For the first time users, they need to create an account; it is just an easy way to finish by entering any of your email account details say gmail or yahoo. Once you created your account you are all set to go! You can readily use this application by just inputting the login details. Once you are logged in it prompts you to select the current running applications on your system to share its screen/window to your counter part user.Once you finished your selection of applications/windows to share it gives an URL to share with your friend.You need to share this URL to share your desk top to your friend,If the counter part also has this Unyte application installed on his system he can opt for perr to peer sharing other wise he can use web based sharing of your desktop.
Note : If you have skype messenger id, it will allow by default with skype login, while your skype application is running.
Download Unyte here.

“Yuggu” is instant messenger software which helps us to combine all messengers (Gtalk, Yahoo, MSN, AIM and ICQ) contact list to a single contact list by providing desired messenger’s login details only once. Suppose if we want yahoo and Gtalk messenger’s contacts list to be combined to form one contact list in Yuggu all we need to do is we just need to add yahoo login details as well as Gtalk’s by going to preferences -> settings -> and External accounts. Once adding these accounts is finished we all set to combine both messengers in just Yuggu itself.

What are the benefits of Yuggu?
  •  It’s free to download and use.
  •  Share your desktop with your loved one.
  •  Conference chatting with different messenger users
  •  Secure and safe
  •  Share control of the same screen
  •  See when contacts are online
Download Yuggu here.

How does this work?
Once you have entered your Gmail or Google Talk account details into Yuuguu, your Gmail and Google Talk contacts will automatically appear in your Yuuguu contacts list. You can share your screen with only one click each. Your contacts will be notified that you want to share your screen by way of a web address and, on clicking this, they will be automatically taken to a browser window containing your screen share.

Drawbacks of Yuggu:
  • We can’t use it for Voice calls.
  • We can’t integrate Web cam chat with this.
  • We can’t put setting to see only online-users.
  • We can’t put alerts “When user comes online”
  • We can’t put more than two status messages.
  • We can’t add custom messages.
  • We can’t share photos/files.
  • etc
Unyte Lyte:

This is a simple yahoo plug-in which helps just yahoo users to share desktop. Unlike yuggu we can have desktop sharing from both sides.Two-way desktop sharing with moderate speed and nice quality is possible with “Unyte Lyte”. It’s so very easy to use.

  • hi babu very nice post, from where u r getting this information the info which u posted is very useful. Great job ..
    keep blogging...

  • Nice one :)

  • Thanks Alex, for the information about the "screen camera". I will definitely give a try about this product and write my review soon.

  • Those are very good tools, however, in many cases those platforms are used just to allow the team to review the same document together in real-time and "be on the same page".
    The recently launched free site does exactly that, quickly show documents to friends and colleagues.
    It allows web meeting and co-browsing on any document, user uploads a document and invites friends to view it with him live.
    All the participants in the session see each others' drawing, highlights, etc.

Whoever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs, u can at least use Name/URL option which doesn’t even require any sign-in, The good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and the URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
~Krishna(I love "Transparency")
