Google Meet, its video communication service, is getting a new feature that will allow users to share access to the content they are presenting in a meeting with attendees, including everyone on the Calendar guest list.
While making the presentation, the users can share the file from the floating action menu or via the suggestion in the Meet Chat, the tech giant said in a Workspace Updates blog post.
The new feature is helpful because by allowing sharing directly from Meet, users can easily share presented content without having to switch to another window to grant access.
“This makes it easier for meeting attendees to follow along with your presentation, find and reference your material later on, and continue working on action items from the meeting,” Google said.
In addition, the company stated that when users paste a link into the meeting chat, they will be “prompted with the file access dialogue.”
Users can then adjust access as needed and choose whether or not to attach the file to the calendar event. Earlier this month, Google announced a new feature that will allow users to view their speaker notes while presenting Google Slides within Google Meet.
To display their speaker notes within the call, users simply click the new speaker notes button in the Slides controls bar in Meet.
