In April, Google announced that they would be developing a presentation application for Google Docs to complete their suite of applications. The new application is called Google Presentations.
Maybe more than any other type of document, presentations are created to be shared. But assembling slide decks by emailing them around is as frustrating as it is time-consuming. The new presentations feature of Google Docs helps you to easily organize, share, present, and collaborate on presentations, using only a web browser.
This was announced last night at the Google blog. So, this morning I tested it out a bit. It’s easy to use and does what it says it does – creates an online slideshow that is given it’s own URL so it’s easy to share. You can also collaborate simultaneously on the presentations and, according to Google, “When it’s time to present, participants can simply click a link to follow along as the presenter takes the audience through the slideshow.”
I put together a very quick 2 slide demo. View It Here.
