Share Video Files (including audio) From Your Computer

Here are the steps to share video files (including audio) from your computer with other users on Google Meet:

  1. Start by selecting the video file you want to share from your computer.
  2. To address potential glitches, it's best to play the video file through a Google Chrome tab.
  3. Drag and drop the selected video file into the Chrome window.
  4. Once the video file is playing in the Chrome tab, follow the steps mentioned earlier to share videos and audio on Google Meet.

Unfortunately, you can only share audio directly from your computer on Windows devices. MacBooks do not support this feature, and you would need to play the audio in a Chrome browser to present it.

Use Another Device To Share Audio In Google Meet

In addition to adjusting your microphone settings on Windows 10 and Google Meet, you can use your smartphone alongside the "Use a phone for audio" feature. This enables simultaneous speaking and presenting of video or images from your desktop. 

Note that this feature is presently exclusive to Google Workspace users and temporarily mutes the desktop's sound during the call.
