Enabling or disabling Personal Audio Conference screen share

Last Updated:

Personal Audio Conferences (PAC) are audio-only meetings. However, if participants join a PAC from a Zoom client (desktop client, mobile app, Zoom Room), they can use video and screen share. This setting allows admins to enable or disable participants’ ability to share their screen in a PAC. If you want to manage video in PACs, learn more about enabling or disabling Personal Audio Conference video.

Note: This feature must be enabled by Zoom. To have this feature enabled, contact Zoom Support.
