Increase your audience engagement with Google Slides Q&A

With Google Slides Q&A, it’s easier to engage your audience and get more participation in your presentations.

Slides Q&A allows your audience to submit questions anonymously during Google Slides presentations and to vote on the questions they want to see answered. As the presenter, you can see Q&A history for each of your presentations.

To enable Q&A:

  • Open Google Slides.
  • Select the drop-down arrow next to Present in the upper right-hand corner.
  • Click Presenter view.
  • Click the Start new button.
  • Select ON to enable the Q&A feature and then select the desired groups from which you will accept questions.
  • A URL will be generated that you can provide to your audience, so that they can submit their questions online.

You can only use Slides Q&A on desktop computers and Android and iOS mobile devices, and you must have edit or comment access to the Slides presentation. Users in the NC State domain as well as external users can submit questions.

For more information on how to accept, submit and view audience questions in Google Slides, visit Accept and present audience questions.
