How to remotely view the desktop of another Mac using iMessage

There are many specialized applications, such as Teamviewer, allowing to obtain remote access to another computer, but if you want someone else to connect to your Mac without using third party software, there is one easy way to do it. In this article I will show you how to remotely view the desktop of another mac using iMessage.


The main condition of this method is the presence on both sides of the Mac computer with an installed OS X El Capitan. Since OS X El Capitan (10.11) in the iMessage there is a function “Screen Sharing”, through which you can easily access remote Mac.

  1. Open iMessages on your Mac, look for the contact with whom you want to connect to gain access to the display and tap on him.
  2. In menu, click on Friends ->Invite to share my screen or Ask to share screen

This command is also available by clicking the link button Details in the upper right corner of the chat.


  1. The user will be prompted to view the screen of his friend or to demonstrate his own.


Wait until the connection process complete (it may take some time).

After this easy operation, a window will appear with all the contents of the user’s remote desktop. This also activates voice communication with quite high quality, between two devices. On the menu bar will be displayed icon of remote access, where you can optionally disable the microphone or even stop the sharing session.
