How do I use AirPlay to stream content from other devices to a Mac?

The latest AirPlay to Mac feature offers three major advantages to macOS Monterey users:

AirPlay Content to Mac – Transfer videos, photos, music, and viewing or editing Keynote presentations from any other Apple device to your Mac. The nice thing is, these devices don’t have to share the same Apple ID.

Mirror display – Extend or extend the iPhone/iPad screen on a Mac and use it as a secondary display.

Convert Mac to AirPlay 2 Speaker – Stream music, podcasts, audio novels, and more to your Mac and use it as an auxiliary speaker for multi-room audio.
