Google Docs starred for a brief moment at today’s Google IO keynote. The biggest news was that Google Docs could now take advantage of native Office editing, a feature that was not available before. Unless you used Google’s Quick Office, that is.
Some of us may be a bit more excited about Google Slides, a presentation app that will also bring you all editing and creating features. Just like Sheets and Docs, Slides can work with Google’s formats, as well as Microsoft’s Office.
Google Slides features
- Create new presentations or edit any that were created on the web or on another device.
- Share presentations and work together with others in the same presentation at the same time.
- Open, edit, and save Microsoft PowerPoint files.
- Get stuff done anytime — even without an internet connection.
- Add and rearrange slides, format text and shapes, and more.
- Present right from your device.
- Never worry about losing your work — everything is automatically saved as you type.
It follows Google’s new design language, which I must admit I am falling in love with. Just like its older brothers, you can get Google Slides straight from the Google Play Store. It is completely free and will give your Android tablets and phones all the presentation tools you will ever need. You can also downloaded for iOS… just in case any of you have some Apple devices.
