How to play slides in Show app on iPhone and iPad

Play a Presentation on Your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV

Play slides on your iPhone, iPad, or any iOS device or connect it to an Apple TV and control slides using your phone-remote. You can even mirror your slides on the Apple TV with Airplay and sync it with your Apple Watch and present them in the way that works best for you. 

To play a presentation on your phone or TV, 
1. Tap on a presentation you want to view from the My Presentations or Shared Presentations category dropdown at the top-centre.
The presentation will open in the reading pane mode.

2. Tap Play icon  at the top-right corner and swipe left or right to navigate through the presentation and jump forward or backward to any slide from here.
You can swipe bottom-up to view the Slides pane that contains the list of all slides in your presentation.

3. You can present and control your Zoho Show slides in the following ways:
  1. Present on Apple TV
    Tap Connect to Apple TV at the bottom bar of your iOS screen to connect your iPhone/iPad with any nearby Apple TV and project your slides on a big TV screen. Once connected your phone with TV, start controlling slides from your smartphone as a smart remote. You can also allow your audiences to follow on the same presentation on multiple TVs.

  2. Present on Apple TV with Airplay
    Enable Screen Mirroring on your iOS device and project your slides from your phone onto the Apple TV. Use your phone-remote to control slides on the big TV screen. 

  3. Control slides using Apple Watch
    Pair your iPhone/iPad with the Apple Watch and control slides from your wrist. This will turn your watch into a smart remote.

  4. Control slides with your Phone as a remote
    Once your phone is connected to your Apple TV, you can use your iPhone/iPad as a remote control to deliver a slide deck. The Remote View of your Phone lets you view presenter notes, access timer, and highlighter tools such as pen or pointer. You can use your phone or the apple watch to control slides on TV.


4. When you're done playing/presenting, tap End on your iOS screen to exit the slideshow.
