It will block all the incoming notifications during screen sharing session. However, the notifications blocked by this new “Notifications blocker” will be shown on the screen after meeting completes.
Google teams are working to launch this feature for not only desktop version of Chrome, but it will be also available on Android as well. Let’s take have a look at description of “Hide Notifications while screen sharing is in progress” feature.
“The notification should not show until the screen sharing session is over. This does not apply to sharing a single tab or window as those would typically not show the incoming notification anyway,”

It is expected that Google Company will release this feature soon on Google chrome browser.
