If the presenter then selects a comment's present button, the question or comment appears instantly for everyone as a slide (below):


If you are looking for an easy way to increase student or audience participation in presentations, give the Google Slides Q&A feature a try!

Update! - Everybody Loves Lasers (did you know Slides also has lasers?)
