During the Microsoft Build developer event, the company said that Live Share, the previously introduced feature of the Visual Studio code and Visual Studio, is now accessible by developers who wish to try it out. Up to now, this function, which enables developers to collaborate with each other, could be accessed only in preview mode --- and it is freely available to any developer, even developers who are using the Visual Studio free code editor.

Some people have likened Live Share to collaborating with Google Documents. Developers are able to see the position of everyone's cursor, and each word their colleagues type, irrespective which platform is used. Each developer participating in Live Share sessions can remain within their desired environment. This means that developers can be more flexible than they can be in conventional screen shares.
