Google also updated their Presentation tool, which now allows users to view other participants and the content that you’re presenting simultaneously. 

Tip from Google: For better presentations and to avoid mirroring, users should share content from a different tab (strongly recommended) or window than the meeting window. If you need to share your entire screen, move your presentation to a different monitor if possible.

To learn more about the changes to Google Meet, check out Google’s article.
