No-hassle sharing for any language, any app

It doesn’t matter what type of app you’re building, what language you’re programming in, or what OS you’re on: when you need to collaborate, Live Share will instantly share your project with a teammate. Edit and debug together in real time without teammates needing to clone a repo or set up their environment.

Start collaborating

Easily work together, in any way you need

Live Share provides you with the ability to co-edit and co-debug while sharing audio, servers, terminals, diffs, comments, and more. Whether you are conducting a code review, pair programming with a teammate, participating in a hack-a-thon, or even teaching an interactive lecture, Live Share can support you in the many ways you collaborate.

Learn about usecases

Collaborate from the comfort of your favorite tools

To collaborate you need to convey repro steps, issues, and ideas. Code snippets or error messages aren’t enough to see the whole picture. When you join a Live Share session, you get the full multi-file context of that project in your own familiar, personalized environment, with themes, keybindings, and customizations intact.
