Presenting your Screen present icon

When choosing to share your Screen, you'll be prompted select an appropriate tab depending on what you want to screen share:

  • Entire screen – this is a good option if you are switching between windows and tabs.
  • Window – select this tab if you're presenting one of your open windows, e.g. PPT. Note that if your window is minimized, it will not appear as available. 
  • Chrome tab – select this tab if you'd like to present a Chrome tab with sound.

Share Chrome tab audio 

When screen sharing your Chrome tab, you'll also share the audio of that tab. If you prefer not to share the audio, untick the Share tab audio box in the bottom left corner of the window.

Broadcast your presentation 📢

By default, the Present feature shares your screen with the people nearby, i.e. in your audio range.

If you'd like to screen share your presentation to the Entire Floor or All Floors in your Space, you can do so by clicking the Broadcast tab while presenting, and selecting your desired Broadcast Range.

View someone's presentation

While someone is presenting, the Present present icon icon will appear on the top-right corner of their video. Click on the icon to view their presentation.

You can resize the presentation by dragging the corners of the window, and click the Full screen full screen icon icon to view the presentation in full-screen mode. In full-screen mode, everybody's videos will be visible in the presentation window. 

To close the presentation, click the X button in the top right corner of the presentation window. 

You can reopen the presentation by clicking the View present icon icon on the video of the person presenting. 


Kumospace hosts and co-hosts can share their video and audio on the Floor they're on, or across All Floors in the Space. Everyone will be able to hear and see the broadcaster, but the broadcaster can't hear other people unless they are in their audio range. 

To broadcast your video and audio:

  1. Click the Broadcast tab in the bottom control bar.
  2. Set your Broadcast Range to either This Floor or All Floors.
  3. Click Start to begin broadcasting.

Note that choosing to broadcast to All Floors will interrupt any ongoing broadcasts.


Up to eight participants can broadcast together, and each Floor can have its own broadcast running simultaneously, perfect for multi-track conferences:

  1. Click the Broadcast tab in the bottom control bar.
  2. Set your Broadcast Range to This Floor or All Floors.
  3. Click Start to begin broadcasting.

Note that regular guests will not be able to open their Broadcast tab, so make sure that all participants intending on broadcasting have been promoted to co-host. Read more about assigning co-hosts in our article about Managing Co-hosts and Guests

Present and Broadcast issues

Present or Broadcast does not work (Mac OS)

If you're using a Mac OS computer, and nothing happens when you click Present or Broadcast, first make sure that Google Chrome is up to date.

Alternatively, the issue may be that you need to give Google Chrome permission to record the contents of your screen. 

If you see a pop-up like the one below, follow the prompt and click Open System Preferences to grant permission to Google Chrome. Then, restart your browser.

If you do not see the prompt, you can also do this manually:

  1. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Screen recording.
  2. Click the checkbox to allow Google Chrome to record the contents of your screen.

  3. Restart your browser and return to Kumospace.

Present or Broadcast does not work (Windows 10)

If you're using a Windows 10 computer, and nothing happens when you click the Present or Broadcast tabs, you may need to turn your camera off and then back on again. This resets your video and should fix the issue.

  1. Turn your camera off by clicking the Camera button in the bottom control bar. 
  2. Click the Camera button again to switch your camera back on.
  3. Once you've done that, click on either the Present or Broadcast tabs, and see if it fixes the problem. 

Some of your guests can't see or hear your Present or Broadcast

If your Present or Broadcast are working normally, yet some of your guests cannot see or hear it, it's likely that they've run into an issue with firewalls. 

If you are on a work or school network, you may run into issues with your organization's internet firewalls. These sometimes block access to certain websites that are used by Kumospace, which can diminish performance. We recommend contacting your system administrator or organization's IT department to ask that the following URLs be whitelisted:
