Displaying Google Slides on your TV

Overview

This help article will show you how to display your google slides on your TV.

Google Slides

Once you have the URL, you will need to create a new Web Screen and then add that to the channel being shown on your TV.

1 ) Create Google Slides

If you are not familiar with Google slides check out googles Get started with Slides.

2 ) Get the Publish URL 

You are able to publish a Google Slide to be added to your channel.  Follow the instructions from Publish Slides on how to generate the public URL. 

Be sure to use the following settings

  • Get the Embed URL not the link URL. When on the embed tab you will need to copy the url from the SRC tag (see image below)
  • Make sure "Auto play is on"
  • Choose how long each slide should show for.  The message time will then be the calculated by the slide duration * the number of slides.

  • Add the publish URL from step ( 2 )

  • Add the Web Screen to any channels you would like to see it on
