Can't talk during screensharing


I have a Chromebook (so Chrome OS), and have noticed lately that whenever I share my screen, Zoom mutes me. I am only able to be heard again when I stop sharing. Wondering if this is a result of my Chrome OS, or if there's something I can do to rectify this. Thanks so much all!

HI @MattAllen25, thank you for posting for the first time!

Are you also sharing audio when sharing your screen or just your screen with no audio? Currently, there is a limitation with Chromebooks where you will be muted if you are sharing your computer audio. 


Keep me updated!

Have you heard of Zoom AI Companion?

Thanks so much for your response Carla! I am not sharing audio, only my screen (article, email, etc. all without sound). Yet my friends/colleagues aren't able to hear me talk while explaining what I'm showing. Thanks again for your help!
