Before explaining yourself how to mute presentation in MeetI have to give you some useful preliminary information on this.

In fact, you must know that, in order to succeed in this attempt, it is strictly necessary to proceed from pcthrough the official website of Google’s video conferencing service, given that, at the time of writing this guide, a desktop client for Windows or macOS dedicated to Google Meet is not available.

Also, I am sorry to inform you that it is not possible to succeed in this endeavor from smartphones or Tablet because while you can share your mobile device’s screen, there is currently no support for a feature that allows conference participants to hear the audio of what is playing on the mobile device of the initiator of a presentation.

Having made the necessary premises above, if everything is clear to you, I would say to take action.
