- From here, you can see your previously uploaded slides, as well as options to import from Google Slides, and upload from your computer.
- To import a Google Slides presentation, choose "Google Slides", sign in to your Google account, allow StreamYard access to Slides, choose the presentation you'd like to import and click "Select".
Or, to upload a presentation from your computer, choose "Your Computer", and select the file from your device.
- After processing, your presentation will show up like a screen or video share in the bottom row of the studio. If necessary, click "Add to stage" on it to add it to the stream.
