Google Slides Lets You See Where Everyone's Mouse Pointers Are

Google Slides

Google's Workspace apps are great for getting work done, especially when you're working with others. They're free to use and have fantastic collaboration tools. With these apps, you can see what others are doing in a document in real time. But now, Google Slides, which is used for making presentation slides, is getting a new feature called "live pointers."

Live pointers in Google Slides are here to make working together even easier. This feature lets everyone see where the mouse pointers are on the screen while you're looking at or editing a presentation. It's like the little indicator that shows where someone is typing in a document, but instead, it shows where their mouse pointer is. Live pointers help co-workers highlight specific text or things on a slide, making it simpler to draw attention to important stuff.

You don't have to use this feature if you don't want to; it's not turned on automatically. To turn on live pointers, you can go to the "View" menu and choose "Live pointers," then click "show my pointer." Or you can use the pointer icon in the toolbar to do the same thing. Once it's on, live pointers will stay on for all slides until you turn them off. If you're in presentation mode or go to the "View" menu and select "show collaborator pointers," you can hide the pointers from others.

This feature will start showing up for users today, but it might take up to 15 days for everyone to get it. It's a really useful addition for working together, and I think it could be great for Google Docs and Google Sheets too, although for now, it's only in Google Slides. If you already have it, give it a try!
