The previous year has seen a major shift to video calling apps like Google Meet, and it appears that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. The risky audio maneuvering required, whether one is a teacher or a professional, is relentless and unpleasant. We start the call with a ‘Can you hear me?’ more frequently than not. While some audio errors are the recipient’s fault, others can be ours, resulting in a lot of wasted time trying to get one’s audio perfect.
To avoid wasting time, you can prepare for specific components of the video conference, especially if you are giving a presentation. So, here’s all you need to know about presenting Audio in Google Meet.
How to present audio on Google Meet
You may play audio in your browser or on your phone. To find out how to do it, follow the steps below.

Select the Start an instant meeting option and launch the meeting.
Click the Join Now button to enter the meeting.
Now click the Present Now button and choose whichever source you want to present. For this tutorial, we will present a Chrome Tab.
