We recently released a big update to the web version of Kast. This means you can now use the same features using the web version of Kast as you previously could on the desktop app. Also, if you are a Mac user, you will be happy to hear that sharing audio is now much easier by using the web version.
In this article we try to cover some of the basic things you need to know about Kast Web.
Which browsers are supported?
Currently, Kast Web works on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Web might be available on more browsers in the future, but for now these two supported browsers should be available on most devices.

How does Kast Web work on Mac?
If you have used the Kast Mac app, you know that getting audio to work requires jumping through a few hoops. With the new update to Kast Web, sharing audio on a Mac has become a whole lot easier. When you use Kast Web on a Mac, you can select to share audio when you are streaming a browser tab. Audio while sharing your full screen or an individual application does not yet work on the web version on Mac.
What video can I share using Kast Web?
On web, much like on the desktop app, you have two main options of what type of video to share: screen & camera.
When you click on the "Share your screen" button, you get the option to select your entire screen, an application window or a browser tab (if you using Chrome, it will say "Chrome tab").
How do I share computer audio on Kast Web?
If you want to share the audio of the video you are kasting, remember to check the "Share audio" checkbox at the bottom left corner of the "Share screen" dialog.
On Mac, you can only share computer audio while kasting a browser tab. On Windows, computer audio sharing is possible for all three types of video (full screen, application and browser tab).
