USE Together is a free screen sharing service in which viewers can control your PC. Similar to the other typical screen sharing software, it allows you to share your PC screen with others. But, it comes with a twist where the viewers can control your PC using their mouse and keyboard. Controlling your PC means they can do various operations like open & view files, write text, run programs, and so on. It is just like Team Viewer and allows you to have seamless screen sharing sessions with your team and also let them control your PC.
Apart from that, it also comes with a “Chat” feature using which you will be able to chat with your team by sending text messages. Similar to another screen sharing service named, “SharedScreen“, this one also doesn’t require the viewers to download anything. That means they can use the web version of this service to join your screen sharing session. Currently, it supports only 3 participants in a screen sharing session, which means you can only invite 2 other team members to a single session.
How to Share PC Screen using this Free Screen Sharing Service:

You can create a new room by entering the room name, user password, and your admin password. Do note that the user password is what you need to share with others along with the room name, such that they can join your screen sharing session. When you’re done creating a room, it will show that you’re online and you can invite two other users to join.

After that, the viewer can simply enter your room name, user password, his/her username, and hit the “Join Room” button. As soon as the user does that, he/she will join your screen sharing session. For each viewer, you will see a different mouse cursor along with the username. You can also assign the role of the joined users either as Super User (will be able to control your PC, add new members, etc.), User (can view and control PC), or Spectator (can only view your screen activities).
Suppose, you have assigned the role of Super User or User to a viewer, then the viewer will be able to see your PC screen and control operations using the mouse and keyboard. Some of the examples which the viewer can do are run programs, open files, play music, write text on a notepad, etc.
