How do I share just music/computer sound only?

Hi - I know you can share MUSIC OR COMPUTER SOUND ONLY, and I know the advanced setting to do so; however, my Chromebook is not giving me the option. It is an option on the account because someone else is able to be the host and share music only on her MacBook. I have downloaded the app, and although that gave me more options than the web based Zoom, I don't have the advanced options to share just sound.

Hi @aimeejensen thanks for your post on the Zoom Community! I do not believe this works on Chrome per this support article

However just to double check I am reaching out to internal resources and will report back when I find out! 

@aimeejensen,

 

Jeremy is correct; the ability to share audio only is not supported on Chrome.

 

This is a different support article than Jeremy shared, but it compares all of the features and capabilities of our clients by OS as well as web.

If you skip to the “Share Screen Controls” section you will see sharing audio only is only available on Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android.
