Are you a Mac user who is using Skype to communicate with your friends, colleagues, or family? If so, you may have noticed that Skype Mac doesn’t have an easy option for audio sharing. Fortunately, it is possible to share system sound on Skype Mac with just a few steps.

When you’re in the middle of a call on Skype Mac, click the Share Screen button. From here, you can choose which screen to share and whether or not you want to share the system sound.

1. Go to System Preferences
2. Select Security and Privacy
3. Under Privacy, click Screen Recording
4. Provide permission for your browser or app
5. A pop-up will appear asking you to quit the app or browser and log in again with the new setting
6. Once this is done, go back into Skype and select “Share Screen” during a call
7. You can now choose if you want to “share system sound” as well as view your screen

With these steps completed, everyone on the call should be able to hear any audio coming from your computer when you are sharing your screen! This makes it much easier for remote teams or social groups who need to come together online for meetings or other conversations when everyone cannot be in the same physical location at the same time.
