Share your code, collaborate on anything, anywhere, anytime

It doesn’t matter what type of app you are building, what language you program in, or what OS you’re on; with Live Share you can instantly share your project with your peers from the comfort of your own tools. No need to clone a repo or set up the environment, to get sharing.

Collaboration shouldn’t be hard, so keep your existing workflow

Live Share provides you with the ability to co-edit, co-debug, chat with your peers, share terminals, servers, look at comments and so much more. You don’t need to change how you work to work with others. Live Share works for all your needs and your team’s.

Use real-time collaboration for pairing, code reviews, technical interviews, bootcamps and more

With Live Share, versatility is the name of the game. Gone are the days of using multiple tools for collaboration and context switching. Live Share not only works for multiple use-cases, but also has an extensibility model that allows you to add your own customization to it.
