Co-present Google Slides in Google Meet

What’s changing 

Building upon last year’s announcement of presenting Google Slides directly in Google Meet and the latest ability to view your speaker notes within Meet, we’re adding a new feature that allows multiple people to present together in Meet. As the primary presenter, you can assign participants to co-present Slides with you. As a co-presenter, you can: 
  • See the audience, presentation, and Slides controls in one window 
  • Navigate the presentation 
  • Start and stop media within the presentation

Why it matters 

This eliminates the need to ask a colleague to move to the next slide in a presentation, leading to smoother transitions and minimal distractions. In addition, this feature further bridges the gap between people working from different locations. 

Additional details 

This feature requires a computer with a Google Chrome browser.
