Google Slides Android App Released, a True PowerPoint Rival
The much-awaited Google Slides app for Android smartphones and tablets is here, offering features that make it a big PowerPoint rival.
The official Google Slides Android app is available on the Play Store and can be downloaded completely for free on Android smartphones and tablets. By using it, you can create, edit, and collaborate on presentations right from your mobile device.
You are able to create new presentations, edit and share them. Surprisingly, you can even open, edit, and save Microsoft PowerPoint files, and this is probably the biggest and most useful feature of the app for those who are looking to cut loose their Microsoft dependency.
Other features include the ability to add and rearrange slides, format text and shapes, paragraph and shape editing and much more. Another awesome feature is that you can present right from your Android device, so if you have a handy projector nearby, it will be brilliant.
The app has currently a rating of 4.5 and most users seem to be surprised. Here’s what Dale Brann is saying:
“I use this for presentations on the go with businesses. We can view everything right on our mobile devices. PCs be damned. I would love the ability to “make a copy” from my mobile and some more shadow options like PowerPoint. Besides that, it does well.”
Go ahead and download the app for yourself on your Android device and start creating your awesome presentation right away.
