Visual Studio Live Share is a suite of extensions for Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio. At a time when teams are searching for good remote collaboration options, we want to call attention to the excellent tooling here. Live Share provides a good, low-latency remote-pairing experience, and requires significantly less bandwidth than the brute-force approach of sharing your entire desktop. Importantly, developers can work with their preferred configuration, extensions and key mappings during a pairing session. In addition to real-time collaboration for editing and debugging code, Live Share allows voice calls and sharing terminals and servers.
Visual Studio Live Share is a suite of extensions for Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio. The real-time collaboration for editing and debugging of code, voice calls, sharing a terminal and exposing local ports have reduced some of the obstacles we'd otherwise encounter when pairing remotely. In particular, we like that Live Share allows developers to collaborate with each other, while continuing to use their preconfigured editor, which includes themes, key maps and extensions.
