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.

    Brilliant, intuitive, fast, and extremely handy for cross-team collaboration.

    I simply cannot stress on how amazing this is.


    The command palette feels limited on shared session. Given how powerful VSCode is subject to usage of commands & extensions, bit of a blip.

    If the command palette's behavior is figured out to unlock full potential, I strongly believe that post this, there is no way any other IDE can even come remotely close to competing with this.

    Remote pair programming! 🎉


    Can we please get Skype integration? Also, the UI integration for launching/managing sessions could be improved. But a great start!

    Been using since the private beta and it's been amazing tool for distributed teams.

    Bob Troia has used this product for one month.

Super stoked for this to be publicly available. This is one of the final steps in making fully remote development as good as in office development.

How does this compare to Atom's Teletype? Same thing, but for VS?
