Controlling the playback of content
When you load an item of content, it begins to play automatically. Users with host permissions can pause, jump to a specific time, or cancel the content. How you control the playback of content depends on how the content was created.
On desktop and VR devices, when an item of content is loaded, a blue dot appears underneath the content icon in the menu. If the item of content controls the playback of media, a blue dot also appears underneath the Shared Screen icon.
