Presenting a Prezi Classic Presentation Remotely

This support page is about Prezi Classic. If you’re looking for help with Prezi Next, please click here.

Prezi Classic allows you to present to up to 30 people in real time from anywhere as long as there is an active Internet connection. A Prezi Classic license is not required to join a remote presentation and viewers can even watch from their mobile or tablet. Check out the video to learn more about remote presentations.

Now that you’ve made that awesome prezi, you can send out its link and give a remote presentation to up to 30 viewers. Sending this link will not put the prezi into a viewer’s list of prezis and will not allow a viewer to edit it. If you’d like to edit a prezi with other users in real time, check out this article.
