Introducing Canva Live

Run live sessions while presenting to drum up audience participation like never before. With a simple 6 digit code, your audience can go to canva.live, join the conversation, send reactions, comments, and questions as you present.

Prepare for engagement

The fear of presenting in real life often leads people to shy away from audience interaction. Now you’ve got an opportunity to plan for it - and control it. You can choose to display the audience’s questions on the screen to keep them engaged in the discussion.

Keep your cues to yourself

Canva Live works hand-in-hand with presenter mode, meaning you’ve got everything you need for a seamless delivery. Display a flawless, uncluttered projection to your audience while seeing your notes, timer, upcoming slides, plus the live questions and comments on a separate screen.

How to use Canva Live

  1. Complete your presentation

    Create a beautiful presentation in Canva, ready to present to your audience.

  2. Present your screen

    Whether you choose standard mode or presenter mode, start presenting your creation.

  3. Click on the Canva Live button at the bottom of your presentation screen

    This will open a panel on the right side of your screen, which includes a button to start a new session.

  4. Click on Start new session

    This will generate your unique 6-digit code that your audience can use to log in. It’ll automatically appear at the top of your presentation so that you don’t have to tell the audience what it is yourself.

    To hide the joining instructions and the question feed, click on Hide while in presentation mode.

  5. Ask your audience to visit canva.live

    This will also be at the top of your screen, in case you forget the address. All they need to do is go to that website on any device and enter the 6-digit code.

  6. Engage your audience like never before

    Now your audience will have the ability to add comments, questions, and reactions while you’re presenting.
