This includes the audio that is being played on the device during the recording.  The app was first launched in the App store back in 2016, but was then removed quickly from the App Store. However, there are now third parties sources which allows you to download Vidyo from.

To record your screen, you will need to launch the app. In the app, you need to select options like what you want to record and what audio settings you want to use.
