Side-by-Side Mode for Screen Sharing Follow

Overview

Meeting and webinar participants who are viewing a shared screen can switch to Side-by-side mode. This enables them to see the shared screen alongside either the Speaker View or Gallery View, depending on which view they choose. They can also adjust the location of the separator between the shared screen and video to change the relative size of each side.
