Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble using the Shared Slides Clicker, check below for solutions to common problems.

Meet overlay says "Waiting for presentation"
  • Check if the presenter has started the presentation. If not, wait for them to start.
  • Ask the presenter to click the Shared Slides Clicker icon in their Chrome extensions bar and then click the "Share this presentation" button (if present).
  • If all else fails, ask the presenter to refresh their Google Slides browser tab and re-present.
Keyboard shortcuts are not working
  • When entering the URL of the Google Presentation to control, make sure to click the toggle next to "Keyboard Shortcuts"
  • Keyboard shortcuts are temporarily disabled when the sidebar in Meet is open to prevent conflicts. Close the sidebar and see if keyboard shortcuts work again.
