Collaborate more seamlessly with live pointers in Google Slides

What’s changing

To enhance collaboration within Google Slides, Google is introducing live cursors, a new feature that lets you and your colleagues see each other's mouse cursors in real time.

With this update, co-creators can easily point out specific text or image elements in Slides to highlight important information and content.
