Is it possible for multiple people to work on the same file at the same time on Matlab online? I want to share my file with someone but I don't know how.

MATLAB Drive is, however, not collaborative in itself -- people get the revised version of the file when it is saved, instead of the file being changed as people type.

Is this meaningful? What do you want to happen, when 2 persons modify the same line of code? Even if different lines are modified, the code has no consistent state anymore. But if you want a mutual exclusive access, github might be sufficient already.

Then a screen sharing seems to be more useful. If two persons edit the same file, they cannot see, where the otherone is changing the code until they reload the code. This is not intuitive.

Well, MATLAB does have source control integration , so you could use it with Git for example. Otherwise you could just use any file sharing service, although that is prone to conflicted copies.
I don't think there is a good reason to want to type in the same file at the same time, but you could do it with something like Google Docs of course. In general it is better to split the project up or collaborate through discussion.

I would also like to be able to work simultaneously on the same file. Just as one can in google docs or office 365... it really is convenient to not have to copy texts back and forth...

No, this is not a facility supported by MATLAB Online.
