How does it work

The same Progressive Web App remote control could be used to control any presentations developed with DeckDeckGo.

If you are using the starter kit, out of the box, your presentation will signal itself as "controllable" and will therefore be "discoverable".

Once the presentation is linked to the remote control, the communication between these will happen through a real-time channel using WebRTC.
