How do I share my screen from an iPad?
Presenters on an iPad can share content directly from the app! Sharing content is only available when using an iPad, it is not available using the iPhone.

- Files: Use this option to open display a file that you previously saved to a third-party file-sharing app (Dropbox or Google Drive).
- Website (temporarily unavailable): Open and share a web page by entering a URL in the address bar in the toolbar. Alternatively, you can tap the Bookmarks icon and select a bookmark.
- Whiteboard: Use drawing tools to illustrate your points on a whiteboard and broadcast it to attendees in real time.
- Tap the Play icon in the floating toolbar to start broadcasting the content to other attendees.

The Audience View pane displays a thumbnail view of what attendees see when you share your screen. This helps you confirm that attendees are seeing what you want them to see (and remind you to turn on screen sharing if you've forgotten).
You can choose to show or hide the audience view pane at any time.
