Sharing Screens vs. Sharing Actions: what's the difference?
Live Sharing includes the ability to share screens or share actions between devices. Here are some differences between these two functions:
|Share Screens||Share Actions|
|Display||Following devices show exactly what's on the lead device's screen||Following devices show the same songs, but show their own layouts, including personal info for each user|
|Interactivity||Following devices become completely non-interactive, like a TV screen||Following devices can still perform tasks independently, like auto-scrolling or sending MIDI|
|Setup||Following devices need a BandHelper account, but don't need the latest data||Following devices must be synced and contain the same data as the lead device|
|Transmission Speed||Following devices usually respond more slowly||Following devices usually respond more quickly|
|Best for…||The simplest possible setup, when followers simply need to view shared info, and all devices have roughly the same screen sizes||Users who want to see their own layouts, use a variety of screen sizes or run different functions from each device|
