Google Meet co-present slide feature: How to use it


Google has made a lot of improvements to its video conferencing app, Google Meet, over the past few years. Over the years, the company has not only increased the number of people who can join a Google Meet call, but the company has also built in interoperability between Zoom and Meet and enabled the video feed of an individual to be turned off in an ongoing conference. Added ability to call. Apart from this, the company has also made it possible to present your slides directly in the meet. More recently, the company added the ability for users to co-present slides in a meeting on Google Meet.

This new feature allows multiple people to present at the meet at once. Simply put, the primary presenter can assign a co-presenter to be a co-presenter, who can then present slides with the primary presenter. Google wrote in a blog post that as the primary presenter, a user can assign participants to co-present with them. And as a co-presenter, a user can view the audience, presentation and slide controls in one window, navigate the presentation, and start and stop media within the presentation.

“This eliminates the need to ask a colleague to move to the next slide in a presentation, making changes easier and with a minimum of distraction,” Google wrote in a blog post.

“Additionally, this feature further bridges the gap between people working from different locations,” the company said.

However, there is a caveat. Google says the feature requires a computer with the Google Chrome browser, which means the co-presentation feature won’t work in Google Meet’s Android and iOS-based apps.
