Sharing/Presenting on Google Meet from Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides

For enthusiastic Google Workspace users, integrating your work into your meetings is now easier than ever. Most of us know that Google Workspace has become a game changer when it comes to streamlining your work, making it easily accessible from anywhere.

Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets, can integrate smoothly with Google Meet. Here's an easy guide on how to do this:

Step 1: Locate the Google Meet icon in the top right corner of your chosen Google Workspace, such as Docs.

Step 2: Upon clicking the icon, you'll be presented with two options: "Bring the call here" and "Just present this tab." Let's focus on "Bring the call here" for now

Step 3: By selecting "Bring the call here," your entire session will transition into the documents interface. You can view participants and access meeting controls directly within Google Workspace. From here, you have the option to broadcast either this specific tab or share the document's link.

Sharing the link will enable the participants to follow you in real time, even if the connection gets bad.

Step 4: To return to the regular meeting view window, simply click the "Pop-out" button located in the top right corner

With this option, you never have to worry about pixelated images or screenshots on your end, unless the network is unstable.

Can I Present If Someone Else Is Already Presenting?

If someone else starts presenting in Google Meet, you'll receive a notification informing you that your presentation is still visible. From this notification, you can click the buttons provided to either end or resume your presentation as needed.

To present when another participant is already sharing their screen:

  1. Click on "Present now" located in the bottom-right corner.
  2. Choose between "Your entire screen" or "A window."
  3. Then, click on "Present."

What Is Preventing Screen Sharing On Google Meet?

Occasionally, you might face restrictions while trying to share your screen on Google Meet. Here are some common scenarios that often occur, and how to resolve them:

  • If the "Present Now" option appears greyed out, it means that the host has disabled screen sharing for all participants. Ask the host to enable screen sharing for the participants.
  • On Mac devices, the browser may require permission to share your screen. Navigate to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Screen Recording. Make sure to check mark the browser you are using from the list on the right.
  • If another participant begins presenting while you are already sharing your screen, their content will become visible to attendees. To resolve this, click on "Resume Presenting".

Pro tip: You might want to record your Google Meet during this time because you'll be too busy focusing one someone else's presentation as well as your own.


While Google Meet provides a platform for delivering presentations, it often falls short in capturing the intricacies of live interactions. Bluedot, however, steps in to fill this gap, transforming your presentations into truly impactful experiences.
