Todays Meet - Run a Back Channel
What is the Backchannel?
The backchannel is everything going on in the room that isn't coming from the presenter.
The backchannel is where people ask each other questions, pass notes, get distracted, and give you the most immediate feedback you'll ever get.
Instead of ignoring the backchannel, TodaysMeet helps you leverage its power.
Tapping into the backchannel lets you tailor and direct your presentation to the audience in front of you, and unifying the backchannel means the audience can share insights, questions and answers like never before.

- Install Google Drive on your computer or mobile device.
- Throw your files in Google Drive. It’s right there on your device.
Now your files go everywhere you do. Change a file on the web, on your computer, or on your mobile device and it updates on every device where you’ve installed Google Drive. Share, collaborate, or work alone: your files, your choice.
