Google Slides is a titan of editing and creating presentations. This online and offline platform (you have the advantage of being able to continue editing even without an internet connection) is part of the Google Drive suite along with other services such as Google Docs or Google Sheets. Nowadays, it is very common to have a Google account, being the only thing you will need to edit in Google Slides, a completely free service!
There are many differences between Google Slides and traditional presentation apps. Here are three key principles to keep in mind when you're learning Google Slides:
- It's still relatively new. PowerPoint was built in the 90s. Google Slides is a browser-first experience that set the tone for how powerful apps that live inside your web browser can be.
- It's connected. Because Google Slides is a browser-based app, it hooks into other web-connected services. That means collaboration and connecting to other apps is easy.
- It's simplified. Google is a company that focuses on simplifying user experience. It's easy to use any of their apps so that tasks like learning how to use Google Slides is easy.
Google Slides comes preloaded with different themes for slides. While most of them aren't as aesthetically pleasing as those found in desktop apps—especially those found in the latest version of Keynote—they're functional. Plus, there's a good selection of many kinds of basic Google presentation themes available.
