Slide control for Google Slides

michellegreene

 Zoom support states that the following presentations support slide control: Keynote, Google Slides, PowerPoint. I have only been able to get this to work with Keynote and PowerPoint. 

 

When I look under the section "How to assign slide control" in the same Zoom support page, it provides links to specific articles for sharing Keynote, PowerPoint, and Google Slides presentations, but the Google Slides has no link! 

 

My question: Does Zoom allow you to use slide control for Google Slides or not? If it does, please advise how, because it is not working based on the current instructions listed. I have all the prerequisites and have been able to assign slide control using PowerPoint and Keynote, just not Google Slides.

Hi @michellegreene 

Thanks for pointing out that we don't have a dedicated Google Slides article! I'll get something created for that soon! 

As for Slide Control and Google Slides, yes, it should work with all 3 services mentioned in the article, but I believe there is an issue that our teams are looking into right now concerning an issue with Google Slides on some devices. I'll try to update you when I know there has been a fix version set.

This really isn't cool.  If you know it's broken, fix your docs.  I've wasted an hour now on this right before a presentation.

Following this thread. A colleague and I tried testing this feature today and it did not work on Google Slides. It did work on powerpoint but that is not our company's main tool. Would love to see this fixed on Google Slides.

I need to be able to share my Google Slides for a memorial service next Sunday. As of now, I cannot share it on Zoom. How can I do this???
