Just follow the simple steps outlined below to share your Mac screen using the Messages app.
How to Share your Mac Screen with Messages App

1. Launch the Messages app on your Mac and find the contact you want to share your screen with. Ensure that chat is selected.
2. In the top navigation, click on Buddies.
3. Choose Invite to Share My Screen or Ask to Share Screen, whichever option you want.
