How to send files to Zoom Meetings participants and Zoom Chats contacts?

Here’s a question from Kishore:

Hi, I have an important upcoming Zoom meeting with a customer. I need to present my clients a restricted business plan which some of them might want to access during the meeting. I can obviously send the files ahead of the meeting by email, or share content in Microsoft Teams or One Drive; that said, i would prefer to be ready to share the file (only if asked) during the Zoom meeting. Any pointers on how can i share documents in Zoom meeting, so i can get their immediate feedback as needed.
