Music in a breakout room

NeilPinnock
Listener

Is it possible in a breakout Room to play music through 'share screen'
If so, what would it be like to also be able to talk over the music?

I'd like to be able to DJ with music  in a breakout room.
Any advice or experience out there?

Hi @NeilPinnock, welcome to the Zoom community! You don't have to share screen in order to play music as you can just share your audio. However, if you are looking to both play music and share content, you first need to ensure that the host of the meeting has enabled screen sharing for participants in breakout rooms. 

Here are two helpful articles about sharing computer sound:

  2. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362643-Sharing-computer-sound-during-screen-sharing 

 

Hope this helps!
