Collaborate with colleagues in Google Slides through a new ‘Follow’ feature

What’s changing

Google is introducing a new 'Follow' feature that allows you to collaborate with colleagues in real time on Google Slides. Building on the existing feature to see which slide your colleagues are on, you can now click a collaborator's avatar on the Slide toolbar to jump to whatever slide they're on and keep moving with them as they navigate and make changes to the presentation.

Google Slides adds 'Following' feature to support Real-Time collaboration with colleagues 1

Getting started

  • Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
  • End users: This feature will be ON by default. To follow a collaborator, click their avatar in the Slides toolbar. If you hover over a followed avatar, a “Following” badge will appear. To stop following a collaborator, click on their avatar again.
    • You will also stop following the collaborator if:
      • The collaborator refreshes or leaves the presentation.
      • You make any edits to the presentation.
      • You click a different slide.
      • You enter Slideshow mode.
    • Visit the Help Center to learn more about following a collaboration on Google Slides

Rollout pace

  • Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on December 8, 2022


  • Available to all Google Workspace customerscustomers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers.
  • Available to users with personal Google Accounts
