Present to a video meeting - Google Meet hardware Help [gg-meethardware-en]

Present to a video meeting

You can share content on your laptop—for example, a set of slides, a document, a spreadsheet—during the video meeting. Whether in a room or on personal devices, other meeting participants can see what you share.

Join from a room and present from a laptop

If you plan to join a meeting from a room, bring your laptop if you want to share content. You join the meeting through the display, but present from your laptop.

For example, on a Chromebook, you can share your whole screen. On laptops with other operating systems, you can also share just a specific window.

Tip: The name of the video meeting or code is at the top of the display.

  1. Go to Meet.
  2. Select the scheduled meeting, or enter a meeting code.
  3. Click Present to meeting.
  4. Select a window or application.
  5. Select Share.

Note: Presenters do not need a Google Account.

Questions

Open all   |   Close all

You can join the video meeting and present to others from the same laptop.

What do I need to do when I'm done presenting and someone else wants to present?
If you plan to share again after them, you don't need to do anything. The Chromebox should focus on the most recently shared screen. If you don't need to share any more, just close the browser tab that you are using to share your screen.
Can I use the room to do a presentation, even if I'm not using it for a video meeting?

Even if you don't have people in another location, you can still use Chromebox to present to the people in the room. Just start a new meeting in Google Meet on the Chromebox device in the room and present to it from your laptop.

To present using Meet hardware, see Use the Meet touchscreen.

When sharing my desktop, can people see everything?

It depends on how much of your screen you share. If you share one browser window or application, that's all your audience will see. If you share your whole desktop, your audience can see everything on your screen.

When you select Present in Google Meet, you can then choose whether to share your entire screen or an application window. 

Share in full-screen mode during a video meeting

When you share your screen, what you show uses as much of the viewing window as possible. When another participant chooses your video feed or if they're in Present to everyone mode, the thumbnail photos of the participants block whatever appears in the window's lower section. You can hide or show the participant photos by clicking the thumbnail icon "". For details, see Start a video call.

Create a Meet hardware video meeting

You can schedule a video meeting in Google Calendar to use a Google Meet hardware device, such as a Chromebox or a Chromebase. The people that you invite get the details that they need to join the meeting from a room or their device. You can find a link to the meeting in the event in Calendar or on the screen when you join the meeting.

To add guests from other organizations to a Google Meet hardware meeting, simply add them as you would any other guest.

Depending on your edition of Google Workspace, Google Meet supports 100–250 participants per video meeting.

Before you begin

Before you create a video meeting in Meet hardware, make sure the following steps are complete.

  1. Verify that the Google Workspace requirements are complete, and that you can create Google Calendar events for all Google Meet hardware that will be included in the video meeting.  
    • Your organization must use Google Workspace and Google Calendar. 
    • Microsoft Outlook events (or events from other calendaring systems) are not supported.  
  2. Associate each Meet hardware device with a calendar resource on the same domain where the device is installed.   
    • For example, a device installed in myorgA.com must be associated with a calendar resource in myorgA.com. A device installed in externalcompanyB.com must be associated with a calendar resource in externalcompanyB.com.
    • To verify this, a user in each organization should sign in to the Google admin console for their organization's domain name and:
      1. Click Device Management.
      2. Click Google Meet hardware.
      3. Select a device name.  
      4. Verify that in the Assign a calendar section, a device is listed.
        For example: Assigned to: Mtn-View-01-Cfm

Schedule a video meeting

  1. Sign in using your Google Workspace account and open Calendar.
  2. Follow the steps in Schedule events.

Note: All new calendar events that you create include a meeting link.

How Google prevents invalid activity - Google AdMob Help [gg-admob-en]

AdMob & AdSense program policies

How Google prevents invalid activity

Our specialists carefully monitor clicks and impressions on Google ads in order to protect your interests as well as those of our advertisers. To do this, we use both automated systems and human reviews, analyzing all ad clicks and impressions for any invalid click activity that may artificially drive up an advertiser's costs or a publisher's earnings.

Google's proprietary technology analyzes clicks and impressions to determine whether they fit a pattern of use that may artificially drive up an advertiser's costs or a publisher's earnings. Our system uses sophisticated filters to distinguish between activity generated through normal use by users and activity that may pose a risk to our advertisers. Some examples of this activity include clicks or impressions generated by unethical users, automated robots and traffic sources, and publishers encouraging clicks on their ads. Our system enables us to filter out most invalid clicks and impressions, and our advertisers are not charged for this activity.

In addition to our automated system, we have a team dedicated to detecting invalid activity using several specialized tools and a wide variety of techniques based on extensive experience tracking and monitoring user behavior and analyzing scenarios. We continually upgrade our detection mechanisms to proactively combat invalid activity.

To learn more about our systems and process for preventing invalid activity, please visit the Ad Traffic Quality Resource Center.

How you can prevent invalid activity - Google AdMob Help [gg-admob-en]

AdMob & AdSense program policies

How you can prevent invalid activity

While our traffic quality team uses both automatic and manual methods to filter out invalid clicks, we also need publishers to follow our policies in order to reduce the possibility of invalid activity.

A general rule of thumb is to always put your users first - make sure your ads don't draw unnatural attention, mislead users, encourage clicks, or appear in places that may cause invalid clicks. If we find a large amount of invalid activity in your app(s), you may be at risk for account disablement. We also refund revenue generated from invalid clicks to affected advertisers. To learn more about this, please review "Estimated vs. finalized earnings".

As a publisher, you are responsible for ensuring that your ad implementation complies with our AdSense program policies, and that you haven't paid for traffic from unreliable sources.

To learn more about our systems and process for preventing invalid activity, please visit the Ad Traffic Quality Resource Center.

Here are some additional tips to further help you prevent invalid activity on your apps:

Don't click on your own ads, even if you think it's okay to do so

Publishers may not click their own ads or use any means to inflate impressions and/or clicks artificially, including manual methods. Testing your own ads by clicking on them is not allowed. Please use test ads (available for Android, iOS) to avoid generating invalid clicks.

Use test ads

Clicking on live ads in your own app is not allowed. Use test ads to avoid generating invalid clicks. It is important to enable test ads during development so that you can click on them without charging Google advertisers. 

If you click on too many ads without being in test mode, your account can be flagged for invalid activity.

There are two ways to implement test ads:

  1. Use one of Google's sample ad units. Google provides sample ad unit IDs to test your ads. 
  2. Use your own ad unit and enable test devices. You can configure your device as a test device and use your own ad unit IDs that you've created in the AdMob UI.

To implement test ads, follow the instructions on Google Developer for Android and iOS.

Understand your ad traffic and app users

Break down your traffic reports into meaningful segments using app filters such as app name, ad unit and country. This will help you gauge how changes to traffic sources or implementation can affect your ad traffic. You can use Google Analytics to get detailed information about your app visitors, and be on the lookout for any suspicious user behavior. Some questions to ask yourself:

  • Where do my users come from?
  • How are they interacting with my app?
  • Which screens do they view in my app?

Learn more about how you can use Google Analytics in AdMob and how to implement the Google Analytics SDK for Android and iOS.

Avoid partnering with untrusted / low-quality parties

Some publishers have had issues with invalid activity when partnering with low-quality ad networks or app promotion sites in efforts to increase traffic to their app.

Understand ad formats and how to implement them

Ads should not implemented in a way that encourages users to click ads, or causes users to accidentally click ads.In order to help prevent invalid activity on your apps, please read the following articles:

Invalid traffic - Google AdMob Help [gg-admob-en]

AdMob & AdSense program policies

Invalid traffic

Invalid traffic includes any clicks or impressions that may artificially inflate an advertiser's costs or a publisher's earnings. Invalid traffic covers intentionally fraudulent traffic as well as accidental clicks.

Invalid traffic includes, but is not limited to:

  • Clicks or impressions generated by publishers clicking on their own live ads
  • Repeated ad clicks or impressions generated by one or more users
  • Publishers encouraging clicks on their ads (examples may include: any language encouraging users to click on ads; ad implementations that may cause a high volume of accidental clicks; etc.)
  • Automated clicking tools or traffic sources, robots, or other deceptive software
Encouraging accidental clicks | Google Publisher Policies

Please note that clicks on Google ads must result from genuine user interest, and any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions is strictly prohibited by our program policies. If we observe high levels of invalid traffic on your account, we may suspend or disable the account to protect our advertisers and users. Additionally, if we are unable to verify the quality of your traffic, we may limit or disable your ad serving. Due to invalid traffic, you may also see a difference between your estimated and finalized earnings.

We understand that a third party may generate invalid traffic on your ads without your knowledge or permission. However, ultimately it is your responsibility as the publisher to ensure that the traffic on your ads is valid. For this reason, we highly recommend that you review our tips for preventing invalid traffic.

If you suspect invalid click traffic by a third party, use this form to report it to our traffic quality team.

  2. Create a new organizational unit for external users.
  3. Turn services on or off (for example, Gmail) for this organizational unit as required.
  4. Add external users to this organizational unit.

    For example, if you want sarah@solarmora.com, an external investigator, to access Vault, you can add her as sarah-solarmora@your_domain.com.

    Note: If you're using Directory Sync to manage your users, you must add external users to your LDAP directory or to Directory Sync so that they aren't automatically removed during synchronization.

  5. Create a new admin role with the required Vault privileges.
  6. Assign the admin role to external users as needed.

These external users do not require a Vault license.

For the Vault user

To help external users get started in Vault:

  1. Get usernames and passwords from the Google Workspace administrator (created in step 4 above). External users enter these sign-in credentials to access Vault.
  2. Give these credentials to external users.
  3. Tell these users where to sign in to Vault.

Help prevent a cracked screen - Pixel Phone Help [gg-pixelphone-en]

Help prevent a cracked screen

To help your phone last longer, you can follow these tips to help avoid screen damage. Over time, even tiny fractures can grow and cause cracks.

Help prevent your screen from cracking

Choose a phone case

Use a protective case with raised, rounded edges. Use a case designed for your phone, even if another case seems to fit. For example, see cases on the Google Store.

If your phone can charge wirelessly, choose a case designed for wireless charging.

Choose a screen protector

Use a screen protector that covers the entire screen, including the corners and edges. The screen protector will help prevent scratches.

Store your phone safely

  • Be cautious when letting young children use your phone.
  • Set your phone on a flat surface when not in use so that it won't fall. 
  • Don't leave your phone on vibrate near the edge of a surface, because it might fall when it vibrates.
  • Don't put your phone near your keys or other hard objects that may scratch, crack, or crush the screen.
  • Don't put your phone in your back pocket where you might accidentally sit on it and crack the screen.
 

Avoid extreme temperatures

 
Don't expose your phone to extreme temperatures, like leaving your phone in your car on a very hot or cold day.

If your screen has already cracked

Repair options

You can repair a cracked screen. Learn about your repair options.

Warranty coverage

Damage from accidents or normal wear-and-tear, liked cracked screens, is not covered by warranty. Learn about your warranty coverage.

About the application firewall - Apple Support

About the application firewall

OS X includes an application firewall you can use to control connections made to your computer from other computers on your network.

OS X v10.5.1 and later include an application firewall you can use to control connections on a per-application basis (rather than a per-port basis). This makes it easier to gain the benefits of firewall protection, and helps prevent undesirable apps from taking control of network ports open for legitimate apps.

Configuring the application firewall in OS X v10.6 and later

Use these steps to enable the application firewall:

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
  2. Click Security or Security & Privacy.
  3. Click the Firewall tab.
  4. Unlock the pane by clicking the lock in the lower-left corner and enter the administrator username and password.
  5. Click "Turn On Firewall" or "Start" to enable the firewall.
  6. Click Advanced to customize the firewall configuration.

Configuring the Application Firewall in Mac OS X v10.5

Make sure you have updated to Mac OS X v10.5.1 or later. Then, use these steps to enable the application firewall:

  1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu.
  2. Click Security.
  3. Click the Firewall tab.
  4. Choose what mode you would like the firewall to use.

Advanced settings

  

 

Block all incoming connections

Selecting the option to "Block all incoming connections" prevents all sharing services, such as File Sharing and Screen Sharing from receiving incoming connections. The system services that are still allowed to receive incoming connections are:

  • configd, which implements DHCP and other network configuration services
  • mDNSResponder, which implements Bonjour
  • racoon, which implements IPSec

To use sharing services, make sure "Block all incoming connections" is deselected.

Allowing specific applications

To allow a specific app to receive incoming connections, add it using Firewall Options:

  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Click the Security or Security & Privacy icon.
  3. Select the Firewall tab.
  4. Click the lock icon in the preference pane, then enter an administrator name and password.
  5. Click the Firewall Options button
  6. Click the Add Application (+) button.
  7. Select the app you want to allow incoming connection privileges for.
  8. Click Add.
  9. Click OK.

You can also remove any apps listed here that you no longer want to allow by clicking the Remove App (-) button.

Automatically allow signed software to receive incoming connections

Applications that are signed by a valid certificate authority are automatically added to the list of allowed apps, rather than prompting the user to authorize them. Apps included in OS X are signed by Apple and are allowed to receive incoming connections when this setting is enabled. For example, since iTunes is already signed by Apple, it is automatically allowed to receive incoming connections through the firewall.

If you run an unsigned app that is not listed in the firewall list, a dialog appears with options to Allow or Deny connections for the app. If you choose Allow, OS X signs the application and automatically adds it to the firewall list. If you choose Deny, OS X adds it to the list but denies incoming connections intended for this app.

If you want to deny a digitally signed application, you should first add it to the list and then explicitly deny it.

Some apps check their own integrity when they are opened without using code signing. If the firewall recognizes such an app it doesn't sign it. Instead, it the "Allow or Deny" dialog appears every time the app is opened. This can be avoided by upgrading to a version of the app that is signed by its developer.

Enable stealth mode

Enabling stealth mode prevents the computer from responding to probing requests. The computer still answers incoming requests for authorized apps. Unexpected requests, such as ICMP (ping) are ignored.

Firewall limitations

The application firewall is designed to work with Internet protocols most commonly used by applications – TCP and UDP. Firewall settings do not affect AppleTalk connections. The firewall may be set to block incoming ICMP "pings" by enabling Stealth Mode in Advanced Settings. Earlier ipfw technology is still accessible from the command line (in Terminal) and the application firewall does not overrule any rules set using ipfw. If ipfw blocks an incoming packet, the application firewall does not process it.

Ad formats - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Ad formats

Visual enhancements to search ads that more prominently display information about your business, such as a phone number, or your website's domain in the headline. These enhancements, which often appear in ads above search results, can include additional content from your website or relevant third-party content. You can add these enhancements manually or they can be added by our automated formatting systems.

  • The most common types of ad formats are ad extensions. Some examples of ad extensions include location extensions (which attach your business address to your ads) and sitelinks (which include additional links to other pieces of relevant content from additional pages within your site).
  • Google's automated formatting systems can display additional information from your website or other relevant third-party content alongside your ads.
  • Google's automated systems can also highlight relevant information in your ads to help people find your business more easily. For example, on some ads above search results, if your first description line is a complete phrase or sentence, we might display part of your description in your headline, resulting in a longer, more noticeable headline that still uses the words you chose for your ad.
  • Google Shopping ads are not considered ad formats.
  • Learn about getting ads to appear above Google search results.

Traffic provider checklist - Google Ad Manager Help [gg-admanager-en]

Traffic provider checklist

If you're considering purchasing traffic to drive to your site, you should spend time understanding exactly what traffic you'll be receiving. Specifically, you should understand how the traffic provider will send you traffic and what kind of traffic you'll receive. You also should set up your Ad Exchange account and web analytics program (such as Google Analytics) in a way that allows you to monitor the traffic.

We've put together a list of questions to ask when you are starting to explore how you and a traffic provider can work together. The list is meant to help guide your discussions with any traffic provider you are considering, but is not meant to be exhaustive:

  • Where will your ads be shown?

    • If you don't recognize the pages where your ads will be placed, ask how those pages get their traffic and if you can see those pages' traffic sources.
    • If the traffic provider is unable to provide specifics like example URLs, or information about whether the pages get their traffic from organic or purchased sources, you should proceed with caution, since you do not know what type of traffic you'll receive.
  • How you can verify your ads' placement?

    • Ask to see it in real time.
    • It's a warning sign if you are unable to get sample URLs where you can view your ads. You may not want your ads showing on adult pages or other unrelated content.
  • How does this traffic provider's cost compare to others?

    • If this traffic provider is charging much less for similar ad placement, ask how they are providing low prices.
    • If prices seem too good to be true, and the traffic provider can't provide a reasonable explanation for how they can pay so little to their network, then it may be a sign that their traffic is not appearing on high value pages.
  • Who are the other partners that buy traffic from this same provider?

    • It's good to know if those other partners use ad verification services and what have those services generally said about the traffic the provider has sent.
    • If you're unable to find other partners who are also placing ads with this traffic provider, that may also be a sign to proceed with caution.

Other questions you may want to ask include:

  • How consistently traffic will flow to your site, day-to-day or week-to-week?
  • Whether detailed traffic source reports are available?
  • Whether traffic sources can be identified in traffic logs or web analytics programs?
  • How you can measure the conversion rate of your ads?

Once you've spoken with a traffic provider and want to move forward, it's also critical that you have the ability to monitor the traffic they are sending to your site. It's always best to start with a small test, such as sending traffic to only a few of your pages and monitoring how it performs. For more detailed instructions on how to monitor traffic, see our article on how to segment your traffic. If you find that a traffic provider is sending traffic that you weren't expecting or you're worried about the quality of the traffic, we suggest you turn off that traffic source immediately, and please let us know. For more information in general about invalid activity, please visit our Ad Traffic Quality Resource Center.

If a watermark doesn't appear in a transcoded file - Apple Support

If a watermark doesn't appear in a transcoded file

In some situations, a source file might not transcode correctly in Compressor 4.2. Learn why this might happen and how to fix the issue.

If your source file contains:

  • A video watermark effect
  • An In point positioned further from the start of the source file than the length of the watermark effect 

Then you might not see the watermark in the job preview or in the transcoded file. For example, if the source file contains a two-minute long video watermark filter and an In point at 3:00, the watermark might not appear.

To correct this issue, transcode the file twice: once to create a movie that doesn't require an In point, and again to add the watermark. Follow these steps:

  1. Remove the watermark filter from the original source file. Do not remove the In point.
  2. Transcode the batch using a high-quality setting, for example, ProRes 422 HQ.
  3. Create a second batch in Compressor.
  4. Add the transcoded movie to the second batch. 
  5. Add the video watermark to the source file. 
  6. Transcode the second batch. 

The second transcoded file includes the watermark effect. 

To learn more, read about using In and Out points to transcode a portion of a source file and watermark effects in Compressor 4 Help.

About Verified Access - Chromebook Help [gg-chromebook-en]

About Verified Access

Verified Access enables your Chromebook to certify that some cryptographic keys are protected by Chrome hardware.

To certify the cryptographic keys, Verified Access needs to send hardware information to a dedicated Google service. This information can identify your Chromebook, but it can't identify you. No information about you or any account on your Chromebook is sent to this Google service. Also, Verified Access makes sure that certified keys on your Chromebook aren't allowed to be used on more than one site (origin), and that these keys can be cleared and regenerated.

Who uses Verified Access

Verified Access may be used by organizations to get cryptographic assurance that they are providing certificates to real Chromebooks with hardware-protected keys. Verified Access is also used by enhanced playback to provide device eligibility verification to people who provide content, like movies and music.

Turn off Verified Access

The device owner or organization administrator can turn off this feature for all users.
