Auto-Unlock Audio for Webex In-Meeting Apps

When users share app content using "open together", the participants will receive some shared audio/visual content. However, participants cannot hear audio/music until they actively click or touch into the embedded app browser window. This is because many browser engines block audio until the first interaction with a website. Unfortunately, this is not a good user experience for participants of Webex meetings. Is there any chance to auto-unlock audio for the embedded app without requesting the participants to click or touch once? If the embedded app is an iframe, there would be an allow="autoplay" tag which could help.

    Unfortunately many browsers now block auto playing media. Authorizing a site for auto playing media may improve the experience. We will evaluate any options we have to improve this experience.
