Access checker for Slides now checks permissions when you share with new users
Quick launch summary
Access checker in Google Slides ensures viewers and presenters can play videos and audio files as expected. By automatically offering access suggestions for embedded content, users can create, present, and consume without needing to adjust permissions manually, and can be confident all users will have a seamless presentation experience.
Earlier this year, we announced that Access checker would check permissions when you inserted Drive-stored audio and video files in Google Slides. With this launch, we’ll also perform an access check for already embedded audio and video content after you share the presentation with additional users or groups. Specifically, when you close the sharing dialog, Access checker will run and may suggest permission changes for multiple Drive video and audio files in the presentation.
This additional functionality will help ensure all viewers and editors of the presentation will get a consistent experience. See our previous announcement for more information on Access checker in Slides.
