Share music and slides at the same time on Zoom!


Eureka!!!  I have been trying to add music to the background while running slides on Zoom and after a lot of testing, I have finally figured how to make it all work together seamlessly. In this video, I have shared the simple steps to share music and slides on Zoom that will enable you to create a unique and more interesting learning experience for your audience. [Video tutorial later on in this post.]



Why add music?


Having the ability to add music while showing slides is a fantastic way to welcome your audience into a meeting, create the mood for your online presentation or get the crowd pumped up before you begin.  It also allows you to engage your audience and change up the tempo throughout your time together. You can play music during a self-study section, or play music to prompt awareness that the break is over. Sound effects are also a great way to add some unexpected fun!



Other options…


I have previously talked about the advanced settings in Zoom to share only sound, CLICK HERE to view.  BUT…. if someone else is already sharing, and you are working as a team, you can only share music through your mic – not as a computer sound share – unless you want them to stop sharing their PowerPoint slides – FYI.  AND when you send people into breakouts – click ‘Multiple participants can share simultaneously’. I share more about how to share screens in our ZOOM tutorials playlist on YouTube.



Introduction to this feature


Our video explains just how quick and easy it is to share music and slides on Zoom at the same time! This behind-the-scenes view gives you a mini-tutorial so you can try this too.  I keep learning and testing in ZOOM, because technology is always changing. [Don’t forget to update your ZOOM regularly.]  I share quick tips and tutorials with you, saving you time, and helping you create engaging online learning experiences!
