Freely annotate web pages, PDF documents, Google Slides and Google Docs content when presenting. Keep your audience engaged with live annotations during your remote learning and Google Meet sessions.
New! Annotate PDFs on your Google Drive or on the web by selecting “Open with Annotate”. Annotations are sticky and remain in place as you zoom, scroll, and navigate. The same user interface and annotation tools now work across PDFs, Google Slides, Google Docs, and web pages.
With improved compatibility with Google Slides and Google Docs, we track annotations for every slide/ page so your annotations remain in sync as you navigate across slides/ pages. Tight integration with Google Slides and Google Docs also enables switching between app controls/ menus and our annotation tools seamlessly. Our annotations are smooth, fast, and anchored in place as you zoom and navigate, making your content look professional and engaging.
Save your annotations in your account for review later. Share them with others or come back and continue working from where you left off. Capture screenshots of marked up pages and insert them directly into your Annotate notebook. All this as you share¹ your entire screen, an application, or just a single Chrome tab with a projector² and multiple student devices.
The plugin works seamlessly with your Annotate.net instructor account to enable annotations over web pages and screen sharing¹ during LiveStreams. When installed on classroom devices, you can empower students to take an active role in their learning by giving them the ability to annotate web pages and share their screens using the "Pass Control" feature.
