When this will happen:

We will begin and complete rolling this out in late June.

How this will affect your organization:

This update will enable the meeting participants to hear the device audio during the meeting, while the presenter is sharing audio-enabled content (e.g., videos, music, apps with audio).

Once it’s rolled out, users will see an additional option to include device audio, next to the existing Share Screen option.
