While in screen sharing mode, Fuze does not currently support the ability for meeting attendees to hear any audio playback originating from the host's device. However, attendees are able to view any media being shown on the screen.

When files or content is successfully uploaded to the meeting, a banner is displayed at the top of the meeting screen.
