And then send the content (app, video or screen) into the breakout rooms.

*Note: The user’s content will be shared in the main lobby as well as all breakout rooms. If other users are sharing in the breakout rooms, their sharing will be stopped and overridden. This is only for screen sharing and will not transmit the hosts or co-hosts audio or video from the meeting.

The user can also select the check box Share sound to include audio to send out along with the content.
