More on Auto-advance


The auto-advance feature sets the number of seconds each slide stays on the screen when the user clicks the Play arrow in the Google Slides player.

If you selected Start slideshow as soon as the player loads in step 8, your presentation will start automatically and advance from one slide to the next after the number of seconds you specified.
