What is Google Slides Presenter View?
Before we dive into how to use it, let’s understand what it is. Google Slides’ Presenter View provides a special screen layout for the presenter during a presentation. It shows the current slide, the upcoming slide, a timer, and speaker notes. This is extremely useful as it allows the presenter to stay organized and prepared for the next slide without the audience being aware.
Setting Up Google Slides Presenter View on Zoom
To use the Presenter View with Zoom, you will need to have two monitors. One will be for sharing your presentation through Zoom, and the other will be for your control panel. If you’re ready, let’s proceed with the steps.
Step 1: Prepare Your Google Slides Presentation
First and foremost, make sure you have your Google Slides presentation ready. Open the presentation and click on the ‘Present’ button. From the drop-down menu, select ‘Presenter View’.
Step 2: Set Up Your Screen Configuration
On your computer, go to your display settings and make sure your screens are extended and not duplicated. This allows your screens to show different content, which is essential for using Presenter View on Zoom.
Step 3: Start Your Zoom Meeting
Now, let’s move on to Zoom. Start your Zoom meeting as you normally would. Once you have started your meeting, click on the ‘Share Screen’ button.
Step 4: Share Your Google Slides Presentation
Under the ‘Share Screen’ menu, you should see all the windows you currently have open. Select your Google Slides window, and then click on ‘Share’.
