Sharing your screen in Google Meet allows you to display your computer’s screen to other participants in the meeting, making it useful for presentations, collaboration, and remote work. Here’s how you can share your screen in Google Meet:
- Join a Google Meet: Start by joining or hosting a Google Meet video conference. Open your Google Meet link or start a meeting from Google Calendar.
- Access the Menu: Once you’re in the meeting, look for the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. It contains various options, including microphone, camera, and more. Click on the “Present now” icon. It looks like a screen with an arrow.
- Choose What to Share: A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to choose what you want to share:
- Your Entire Screen: This option shares your entire screen, including all open windows and applications.
- A Window: This option lets you select a specific application or window to share.
- A Tab: This option lets you share a specific tab from your web browser.
- Start Sharing: Select the option that suits your needs. If you choose “Your Entire Screen” or “A Window,” click on the window you want to share. If you choose “A Tab,” you’ll need to select the specific tab from your browser that you want to share.
- Adjust Sharing Settings: Once you’ve selected what to share, you can adjust sharing settings by clicking on the “Share” button in the bottom-right corner of the pop-up window. You can choose whether to share audio, show your cursor, and optimize for video quality.
- Present: After adjusting settings, click on the “Present” button. Your screen will now be shared with the other participants in the Google Meet.
- Stop Sharing: To stop sharing your screen, click on the “Stop sharing” button at the bottom of the screen or the “Stop presenting” button in the pop-up window.
Remember that screen sharing is a powerful feature, so make sure you’re sharing appropriate content and that your screen is not displaying sensitive or private information. Additionally, screen sharing might be limited by your Google Meet plan or organization’s settings. Always be mindful of the context and audience when using this feature.
