Co-browsing is ‘collaborating browsing’ and this allows both the moderator and the participant to simultaneously navigate the same web page.

Co-browsing is collaborative and interactive in the way that it allows participants joining in a video call to actively browse together. And on top of this, co-browsing is simultaneous and synchronous. That way both participants in a co-browsing session can see what the other person is doing on the screen.

Examples of how to use co-browsing to make remote contact with your customers more interactive:

  • Fill out forms and applications together, guiding the participant through the process in real-time.
  • Showcase two-way interactive presentations, more engaging for your prospects.

How does co-browsing work?

Co-Browsing with others is related to a Website or Webpages. So, your Website or Webpages which are to be co-browsed, must be made ready for Co-Browsing first. Once they are ready, you Invite others to join a Co-Browsing session with you through a Unique URL, i.e. existing URL with some Query String Parameters.

Once other person joins, both can see each other Cursor Position on the page and all actions at one end get replicated at the other end. If one clicks on a link, the other end already reaches the same page.

You can invite more people to join in the same Co-Browsing Session.
