I used to use iChat to share my desktop with friends, but I do not know or have not been able to do it using iMessage.  Does anyone have any insight into this?

    Hi,

     

    Go to the Window Menu > Buddies (CMD + 1)

    This is a combined Buddy list by default

     

    Highlight Buddy.

    Use Buddies menu like before (or Bottom of Buddy list icon)

     

    It will work AIM to AIM  or Jabber  to Jabber  but not with iMessages and yahoo as they don't do A/V chats.
