Recently, Google updated the Google Slides presentation mode toolbar. In the past, this toolbar could be very intrusive. It popped up when you didn't want it to and it blocked the view of parts of your slides. These issues were definitely annoying when giving a live presentation or when recording.
If you were just as annoyed as I was, this new update is a breath of fresh air. The updated version of the presentation mode toolbar is much less intrusive. It takes up less screen real estate and it expands only when you want it to. Take a look below to see the updated toolbar in action. Credit to the folks at Google Workspace for creating this GIF.
What did you dislike most about the old toolbar? How excited are you for this update? If you have any questions and would like a follow up, contact me via Gmail or Chat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
