Be aware that on larger screens this button will be in the vertical panel. The icon is still the same.

After clicking on the button you will be presented with a dialog that will allow you to upload your local assets. You can upload multiple files at once. After you have selected the files you want to upload, click on the upload button. The files will be uploaded to your browser storage and you will be able to use them in your scripts.

This will activate an asset creation part of the modal. Here you need to enter the name of the asset by typing "BoomBox" into the input. Then click the "Choose files" button. File navigator will pop up and you will need to navigate to your Downloads folder where the BoomBox.glb file was saved.
