Which has been reported that notifications to show in Google Chrome during video calls will not appear in the screen sharing.
Users can turn off notifications appearing in screen sharing at their convenience. Once the screen sharing is over, all the notifications that came during that time will start appearing on the desktop.

This means that no one will be able to see your personal notifications during screen sharing.
