AppShare hosts can now share device audio while sharing applications on Mac systems

Prior to this update, when an AppShare host used AppShare to share a video or other media with sound in the Saba Meeting App on Mac systems, the audio from that media was not broadcasted in the event and so users in the session could not hear the audio. Sharing of device audio was available for the Saba Meeting App on Windows 10 systems only.

This update enhances the ability of the Saba Meeting App so that AppShare hosts can now share their device sound while sharing an application on their Mac system. So, when the AppShare host shares a video or other media with sound, the audio from the media is broadcast to all attendees in the session.

The video can be either a local file, a URL, or an embedded video in a Web page or a PowerPoint presentation.

To enable device audio sharing during AppShare, the AppShare host can select the Share computer sound check box in the Share menu. Clear the check box to disable audio sharing. When the host stops AppShare, the shared device audio also stops. The Share computer sound check box is displayed only after starting AppShare.

Note: While sharing the device audio, the 'Voice Activity Detection' feature is disabled. So, the microphone will always stay 'active' while you share device audio.
