What is this in Google slides page? I tried checking the meaning of Tom, Pam, etc using Google but the meanings could not be understood, is it idiomatic? enter image description here


When using Google Docs, Sheets and Slides to edit documents, several people can edit at once. You can see the cursors of other users as a coloured cursor (or, in sheets, a coloured box around the selected cell) with that user's name attached to it - just as shown in the animation.

This is showing how the hypothetical Tom, Pam and Brittany can all edit at once. That is all. It's just names of people.
