Although this tip is simple, if you’re not in the know you will find it very useful in your future group hangouts.

Like most of us, you will know doubt have weekly or monthly meetings, product demonstrations where there’s more than just the two of you. So if there’s someone leading the meeting and they have presented their screen, it’s important to see what they’re talking about!

To prevent losing their screen when someone else starts talking or asking questions, click on the presenter’s icon on the righthand side of the Hangouts screen and this will stop it from changing if someone else starts speaking.

Meet the new Hangouts

We’re pretty sure most of you will be using the new Hangouts ‘Meet’. To save time and avoid having to go into your Calendar to access your meetings, simply pin Meet as a tab, using this link.
