Google is introducing a new feature to its video-communication service “Google Meet” that will enable users to share attendees, even those on the Calendar guest list, access to the content they are presenting during a meeting.
The tech giant stated in a Workspace Updates blog post that users can share a file while creating a presentation by using the floating action menu or by making a recommendation in the Meet Chat.
The new feature is advantageous since it enables sharing directly from Meet, allowing users to quickly share provided content without switching 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.
The company also disclosed that users will be “prompted with the file access dialogue” anytime they paste a link into the meeting chat.
Users can then select to attach the file to the calendar event and adjust access as needed.
The tech giant said earlier this month that it is introducing a new feature that will let users access their speaker notes inside Google Meet while delivering Google Slides.
To display their speaker notes during the call, users only need to click the new speaker notes button in the Slides controls bar in Meet.
