Pros: I use this in the field of education. I used other platforms prior to Slides (PowerPoint, flipcharts by ActivInspire, HaikuDeck, and a few others); however, Google Slides is the one of I've stuck with. I see pros with each of the previously mentioned platforms, but Google Slides is the clear winner with regards to longevity. Pros:

- It's included with a G Suite account (if you have a Gmail or Drive, you have access to Slides).

- It offers all of the features that a good slide deck needs.

- It's cloud-based so it can be updated across multiple platforms at any time.

- There's even an app that works for editing. And it works well!

- It's collaborative - students and colleagues can work on Slides, together, at the same time. No need to email copy after copy after copy. There's one copy in the cloud that we're all contributing to.

- It's constantly being saved. No need to worry about a computer or app malfunction - it's just always being saved in real time.

- Add-ons are available by independent developers that make it even more powerful.

- It's easy to integrate features from across your Drive account (images, graphs, even YouTube videos).

Cons: I see no real cons. Some may argue that other platforms may have more advanced features, but in all honesty, how many of us really need/use those advanced features? I'm guessing very few of us. Just make the switch - you won't be sorry.

Overall: Presenting instructional content, making eBooks, sharing ideas, collaborating with peers, etc.

Pros: -Switch from Power Point to here is easy. I haven't found a feature that on Power Point but not on Google Slides

-Creating presentations with a group or team is a breeze. Share the presentation with Edit turned on and all your members can work on it from there computer where ever they are. If working at the same time you can turn chat on and communicate while working on the presentation.

-If you are the team lead, you can have your team review your presentation, but instead of editing they can "make suggestions" of things to add. You can then add what they suggested or not with a click of a button.

-When giving your presentation you can share with people with view only on. They can follow your presentation from their device but cannot make edits.

-Access your presentation anywhere you have internet.

-Easy to download to PDF

Cons: -Always bring a downloaded backup. If you don't have internet access, you cannot access your presentation.

-Be careful when building a presentation and you are working on the same slide at the same time. If you are both working in the same spot, it will only save one of your work.

Overall: I created prenations for my class daily. I then download it as a PDF and open it on my iPad and mirror it to the projector. I write all over the presentation with Notes. Currently there is not a way to do that directly on Google Sheets and that is why I download it to PDF and use a different App.

Pros: As I student, I have to do lots of presentations - and most of the times, I have to work together with classmates. Compared to other competitors, collaborate working is definitely one of the strengths of Google Slides. Microsoft Powerpoint, for example, offers this feature, but it's nowhere near the performance and feature-set of Google Slides.

As a Google product, Google Slides is always gorgeously implemented in the Google ecosystem - this way, all your presentations and documents are always synced, you won't forget them at home.

The feature-set is okay, but nothing special. You're certainly able to create basic to more complex presentations with different types of media, very simple but good-looking designs and all kinds of design elements - for a students belongings, I have nothing to complain.

Lastly, I would like to mention the ease of use: all colleagues I've worked with understood the application within seconds, in most cases, I didn't have to explain anything.

Cons: The feature-set of Google Slides is nothing special, you might miss some more complex scientifical features like 3D diagrams or transitions and templates.

The fact that Google Slides is a web-application is for me a bonus, but friends told me, they would have prefered a standard Windows program - but that criticism is not that important.

Overall: All in all, Google Slides files the student's gap of a collaborative application for presentations. It's very easy to work together with colleagues on very good-looking and possibly even more complex presentations. It might not have the feature set of some expensive and more hard to use programs, but for me, that's not a big deal.

Pros: The thing that I like the most about this product is that it's a free slideshow creation tool. It also has really solid collaboration tools and an excellent audience question submission tool. It also comes with a tutorial which really makes it easy to learn about and use. What I also love about this product is that you can use it immediately. There's nothing to download as it's online, nothing to pay, etc. As long as you have a Google account, you'll immediately have the features to create and present a presentation in a snap of a finger. This is truly the best free presentation site that you'll probably ever find!

Cons: There's not as many cons than pros that I have about this software. All I can really say is that there's no desktop app, you can't export to a video, can't import audio, and the transitions are very limited. This also goes for the selection of effects in the product.

Overall: I've used this in school multiple times when having to do a project. I present my thoughts and information on this site, it's really easy to use and can be made in a very few minutes.

Pros: My fellow directors in my company needed to present together but we are rarely actually together. Instead of emailing back and forth or even worse having to meet in person to go over our slides-we all simply used google slides from the comfort of our own offices. Google slides makes ease of presentation on presentation day because we aren't all switching to new documents-all of our contributions are in one place! Also, we were able to see each others slides to create a uniform look. When I needed my slides reviewed before my presentation my boss was simply able to log on and view instead of having to send back and forth. So easy!

Cons: The software at times runs extremely slow! I usually just need to restart the program and that would fix it but I didn't love that. Also, it can be a tad tricky to figure out how to use all the effects. Another director tried to guide me over the phone-it would be helpful if I could turn on being able to see their actions so I could learn from them. She ended up just doing all my editing for me which isn't ideal for her--but did work out for me! ha!

Overall: Using google slides for our group presentations has created ease, flow, consistency and simplicity to my companies staff trainings. It is helpful to be able to see all of my co-directors progress as I complete my portion of the presentation. I loved that I could copy slides from my co-director so that our theme (colors and layouts) were similar. It made the presentation look much more professional!

Pros: Google slides is a great and easy to use online tool to create, format and show presentations. Similar to the other online tools of Google Suite, one main advantage of Google Slides is the collaborative aspect. I love how easy is to work on a presentation with other people at the same time, and how simple is to share the slides with other people (you just need to send a link). Another thing I love about Google Slides is the fact a browser is enough to start creating or editing a presentation. This is very convenient since in many cases I use computers that do not have a presentation software installed.

Cons: Although I enjoy the simplicity of Google Slides, I wish the tool had more complex features similar to other presentation programs. For instance, the animations available on Google Slides are very limited. When I need to make a presentation that requires animations I use another software.

Overall: I use Google Slides often, not only to create and edit presentations but also to see and comment slides from other people. I am often teaching university courses and Google Slides has been an amazing tool in this context. It is easy to receive and comment on the slides of students. My experience with Google Slides has been great. If the tool had more complex features, similar to other presentation programs, the tool would be perfect.

Pros: It is an app that allows users to make highly customizable presentations. It has all the features needed, from templates for whole presentations, to templates for individualized slides (which are all generally very stylized and with excellent designs). It provides multiple options for adding colors, elements like charts, images, wordart, animations, objects, and more, and presents them in a very neat format, that makes it easy to use for anyone.

It also provides some unique options that I had never seen before:

- It has a Close Captioned option in the Presentation mode. This works only in English, but can provide a Close Caption within the presentation while the speaker is talking.

- There is a pointer also in Presentation mode, which means you don't have to rely on physical pointers while presenting.

- Also on Presentation mode you have the option to give your audience a link for them to submit questions,and later you can present the ones you are most interested in answering.

- When adding elements like images or videos, it gives you the option to directly search on Google for whatever you need, which saves some time that would've been spent copying and such.

Overall, it is an amazing option for anyone making presentations, especially if they have a low budget.

Cons: IT has very few drawbacks, although it might be difficult to personalize more beyond a certain level. Some of the newer options (like the CC in presentations) also need work, since it can make mistakes that might not make it very useful throughout a formal presentation.

Overall: It is a great tool for showing project results to a large audience, and it allows for aninteractive experience with listeners, since they can participate both in person and via online questions, which is a completely novel experience for me. It is a great tool, I would recommend it 100%!

Pros: The presentation software does everything you could ask of it, allowing you to integrate content form all of the google platforms, collaborate, modify, and present with no issues. I have had no problems saving or converting across powerpoint files,.

Cons: I truly have not had a single concern come up that hasn't been addressed through customer support, including the extensive network of user responses on the google support forums.

Overall: As an educator, content creator, and education management collaborator, this software allows me to create presentations that can guide the learning for everyone in the building. I use, share, and modify, google slides literally every single day of my professional life because they are EASY to use and work on every device. Giving visible access to students, or non-trusted staff, lets me save the hassle of printing, while still providing access to the key content.

Pros: Google slide let me create and edit my presentations from anywhere ,and with any smart device which let me access the internet.I also think Google slide has got similarities with Microsoft Powerpoint and this was beneficial to me when I made a switch from Powerpoint to Google slides years ago.

Using Google slides to create presentations ,I am left unworried about the possibility of my presentation size getting too bulky and potentially crashing ; at least this has never happened to me using Google slides.

Lastly and very importantly too, Google slide autosaves my presentations to the cloud, keeping me in save hands if I ever forget to save my presentations.

Cons: While the Google slide interface is quite similar to that of Microsoft Powerpoint ,it is however not as intuitive or as user friendly and I will think a new user to presentations will have a faster learning curve with Powerpoint than with Google slides.

Overall: Google Slides makes the process of sharing presentations with my colleagues before meetings a breeze.Not minding what presentation tool some of my colleagues use,they still get to open my presentations on whatever presentation tool they use personally.

Pros: This is just like Power point but in a web browser. You can do pretty much the same thing and you don't need to install clunky software. You just build your project right there in the web browser. It has all the features of Power point but in a simpler interface and with the ability to collaborate in real time with other people on the creation of your project. Then when you are done all you need is a web browser to present your project. Easy peasy!

Cons: No real drawbacks to this program unless you don't like storing your files in the cloud while you work on them.

Overall: This is a great program that my Kids love to use they make presentations all the time to show the family and for school. I use it for work myself to create great presentations for customers to show them what I can do. This is a very versatile tool

Pros: What I like most about this tool is that it offers a large number of presentation topics, sources, the possibility of inserting videos, animations and many other options. Another advantage is that it allows you to work in a team easily and comfortably, because several users can work simultaneously on the same presentation. In addition, all changes made to the presentations are automatically saved, even allowing you to use the revision history to view previous versions of the presentation.

Google slides is the ideal tool to create presentations because it is very easy to use, is web-based and also offers multiple innovative tools.

Cons: Compared to other similar software, google slides is very limited and offers fewer options in terms of design. In addition, to use it you need to have a gmail account and have a stable internet connection.

Overall: Google slides facilitates the creation of web-based presentations, its powerful tools and functionalities make it the ideal tool to work in a team. I use it quite often, my experience has been quite satisfactory and the best part is that it is totally free.

Pros: - Fast, free, online PowerPoint alternative

- Everything is stored in your Google Drive account and it's pretty much always up to date, since it's saved automatically

- You can also add extensions and new themes to further increase its functionality

Cons: - Larger presentations seem to drag down the workflow.

- Not every PowerPoint feature is present within Google Slides yet.

- It's not quite easy to make micro-changes to text or images.

Overall: These days, with all the Google Slides improvements, it's hard to even recommend PowerPoint. I use Slides on a daily basis and I'm always surprised at how well it works, in an online environment. Pushing images, videos and text and saved pretty much instantly in the cloud. Templates are easy to import and use. Sharing works great. The experience just rocks!

Pros: Unparalleled ability to collaborate in real-time and the relative simplicity of getting started are both key. Despite its relatively rudimentary design capabilities, once you have the ability to collaborate on a deck with your team so easily, it's really hard to go back to any other platform.

Cons: The rudimentary design capabilities, lack of consistent product improvements, and litany of small but nagging issues that plague the platform (bullet consistency, copying and pasting while retaining the right formatting, even printing to pdf sometimes creates visual quirks). As with many of its products, it's "good enough" but not quite "great", yet somehow it becomes an essential part of my daily life.

Pros: Obviously everyone is familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint. It's what we all used when we were young and it's what we were all taught on and still is widely used amongst all big companies. But, that's not a reason not to know and learn about Google slides. First off, this is a free product. So there's that. Also, this is made by Google, a company that always performs in terms of software so they obviously know what they are doing. Google slides can do everything that PowerPoint can do. It's also on the web... So just imagine, you can log in to any computer or laptop or phone and have your presentation ready. No longer do you need to save your PowerPoint to a thumb drive and carry the thing and worry about it having to work on whoever's laptop that you are using. Google slides let's you simply log in to your Google account and Bam! Your slides are right there for you to use. It's got all the features of PowerPoint as well so don't think you're losing anything. In fact, I really like the Google slides user interface just like any other Google product, they really think about the user and the end user. It's got really nice themes and settings and is really convenient to use. And since it's Google, it's really easy to share with someone immediately or if you're working with someone on the slide you can work simultaneously just like a Google doc. I really think Google slides is being slept on by a lot of people because it's really that much better and more efficient than PowerPoint.

Cons: It does still require you to sign in with a Google account to create a slide but the benefits outweigh this necessity for sure.

Pros: Google Slides is free and makes it easy to create and access presentations from all of my devices.It also supports collaboration,which makes it easy for multiple people at a workplace or workgroup to work together on presentations ; resulting in presentations being done faster,and with better quality too.Since multiple people working together will likely arrive at a better quality,than a singular individual working on presentations all by themselves.

Cons: Google Slides is free to use and therefore I probably do not anticipate to get the same quality I will get from paid alternatives.More importantly too,I do very basic presentations and Google slides covers that need very well.

Overall: Google slides enable me create presentations at a moments notice.Because it is browser based,I am always able to access past presentations or create new ones ,provided I have got a mobile smart device ,tablet,pc or MacBook within reach.Also ,it has saved me money in terms of monthly subscriptions I use to pay on my Microsoft office ,which I stopped paying since 2014 when I began using Google apps.

Pros: This software is very user friendly, it has an appealing appearance and it is easy to use. It includes many useful tools organized into sections for the user to experience. Google Slide includes many transitions, themes, and some cool templates to use. The big benefit of Google Slides is that you can share this slides with your work partner by just sending him an invitation via email.

Cons: One big con with this software was the lack of templates it has. Google Slides includes very few templates to choose from and they are all very simple. Also when you have a weak connection, the software often stops and tries to reconnect to you network .

Overall: Overall, Google Slides is a great presentation software made by Google which allows you to create, and share your own presentations. It has all the tools you need to edit your presentations. It also includes the ability to share and edit your presentation online with your work partners or boss. I really recommend this software for students in school/university and also for companies who often present information.

Pros: Delivering presentations is something I need to do everyday, be it to clients for a sales pitch or training my vendors or staff. The biggest problem was carrying my personal Laptop where ever I needed to make a presentation and then set it up with projectors and other equipment at the place of delivering the presentation. Now I prepare my PPTs on Google Slides, they get automatically stored in the cloud and I simple log in to my Google account from the computer the organisers where I am speaking has already set up and get right on with it. Besides that it is a very handy tool providing me with two screens, one where I can see my slide notes and the other one containing the actual slides which gets projected on to the screen.

Cons: Though powerful, Slides lacks in a big way from more traditional apps like MS-Powerpoint especially in the Animation and Custom Animation sections. What we can do in slides while animating an object in a customized manner is very very limited. Even the built in animations leaves a lot to be desired in terms of the choices provided and smoothness of the animation.

Pros: Affordable: Slides, being part of the Google Docs office suite, is completely free to use and thus one does not have to pay any license fee to acquire it as is the case with Microsoft's PowerPoint.

Accessibility: The two things that you'll need to run Slides are a Google account and an active internet connection. It doesn't require any installation on your system as it is cloud-based.

Collaboration: It gives you the ability to easily collaborate with your coworkers and peers with each adding their own expertise in order to achieve the best possible result.

Cons: Lack of Template Diversity: Slides does come with a gallery of templates but it certainly doesn't match up to the thousands of custom made templates and graphic elements offered by PowerPoint.

Basic Animations: You can use Slides for creating presentations with basic animations and transition effects whereas it's rival, PowerPoint offers much advanced features and powerful effects (3D, reflections, etc.) which are available in the desktop-based version.

Overall: It helps to make presentations that require teamwork as it is easily accessible across devices with an active connection thus allowing everyone to share their ideas. You get live updates for the changes made to any file and the fact that it's free makes it a great presentation tool to have.

Pros: Google Slides is a solid alternative for anyone that does not need to be within the Microsoft Office economy of products. The majority of the familiar features from PowerPoint are present with the exception of Microsoft's robust collection of high quality themes.

Collaboration is seamless. Anyone with a Google account can be invited to participate in creating and viewing the content. Slides can be shared via URL or cast to anything that supports Googles screen cast functionality such as a connected display or Chromecast.

Cons: Probably the single biggest con is simply the barrier created by existing software such as the ubiquity of Microsoft Office. Pushing users onto a brand new platform is a painful and lengthy process.

Aside from offline functionality, the user experience is contingent on the underlying browser and internet stability rather than the traditional operating system which might negate some use cases entirely.

Pros: Due to the dynamics of the current business world, things are cloud-based or done online. As a result, Google Slides brings about the mobility of preparing the presentation slides. With Google Slides, it is easy and possible to create, edit, and share your slides anytime, and anywhere. The product is very affordable for all, and there are constant improvements from the vendor making it more competitive. Furthermore, in case of any question, Google is always responsive and ready to offer the necessary guidelines.

Cons: Nonetheless, Google Slides still demands more improvements to fit or to fairly compete with PowerPoint. For instance, Google Slides lacks significant animation features, and this makes it less competitive. Again, the user design still demands some more updates, to make it friendly.

Overall: For the purpose of creating, editing, or sharing the presentation slides, Google Slides is a perfect online solution. The vendor seems to understand the dynamics of the current business world, and as a result, bringing the new improvement. The product is affordable, and simple to use. I could recommend any person who has not tried out this item to do it faster.

Pros: Before Google slides I was using traditional presentation software which was provided by default in programs package. But requirements change too fast and while searching a new platform for presentation I found Google Slides. Best feature of Google Slides is photo editing and masking feature after inserting images which was not available in other presentation softwares. With useful tools like cropping, resizing and coloring you can make photos look more naturally in slides. Collaboration feature is also time saver while creating presentations which must be done in a short of time. Another col side Google slides is that presentations which were created in Google slides are available in other presentation software like microsoft powerpoint.

Cons: Overall I am satisfied with Google slides but I have a small suggestion. It would be great if Google slides was available for offline use as well. Because sometimes you can be out of internet coverage area. Browser based mechanism is great but offline setup is also essential when you don't have internet connection.

Pros: I like that I have the ability to work alongside my partners even when we are not together. This tool allows us to collaborate on the same project at the same time. I also like how the drive automatically saves every few minutes so that work is constantly saved.

Cons: I would like if Google Slides offered more features and options on their slide deck templates. They have some great options but there is a limited amount.

Overall: Overall, I really enjoy working on Google Slides. It gives me the opportunity to work with my peers on projects. It is very time efficient and convenient that everything can be found in one place.

Pros: Google slides is just great for any type of presentation. I personally use Slides all the time and have made countless slides. There are many features like font, different styles and backgrounds. You can add pictures easily and many other features.

Cons: There are some features that are a little tough to understand. Many different types of features including styles and fonts and bullet points for example that are tough to get to when first using slides.

Overall: My overall experience has been awesome. I personally use Slides daily and my students use it most every time when they are sharing presentations.

Pros: As usual, since google slides is a product of google, there will be no installation required and it is free. Just like other google products. All you need is a gmail account, internet and a computer/laptop or smart phone. Yes! You heard it right. You can access, edit and share it using your smart phone whenever and wherever you are.

Google slides have been very helpful in my career specially that we often have presentations. It is user friendly and easy to use. I love the idea that the storage is cloud-based. You can collaborate with other people even though you are not together. There was an instance that my team had to prepare a presentation and what we did is that we did our presentation at home. We simply edit our part and save it. No need to save and send the file, then save it again and send it again, then save it again and send it again and so all over again. The good thing with google slides is that once you successfully saved your file, others will be able to see the modifications/changes made. That easy!

Cons: What else can I ask for a free application? Maybe if there's only one thing I can say, is that some of powerpoint features is not on google slides.

It is a powerful tool to create presentations.

Pros: With Google Slide it is possible to create your personalized presentations, which you can design to your liking with colors, animation effects, backgrounds and other complements that enrich the content you want to reflect. These presentations are hosted files in the cloud so it does not occupy space on your computer, they are automatically saved and they can be shared with other people so that they can edit or not according to your preference.

Cons: there is no possibility to extend the free plan, however 15GB can cover the needs of many

Pros: Google slides is the most practical, useful software to create presentations. I often give training to clients, and I create slideshow presentations as well as video tutorials to do my training.

The benefit of Google Slides over powerpoint is that you can add in your own company's visual identity - specifically talking about fonts - and they'll be displayed when you view the presentation on another computer.

Unlike powerpoint, where you use fonts and it's a touch-and-go situation on whether the fonts will be displayed on the other computer that you're going to use to present on (spoiler: fonts that you've custom added to powerpoint will never show on another computer, and it ruins the entire professionalism of your presentations when you are presenting a slide show with missing fonts that are either too big or too small).

If you've done any kind of presentation where you prepared it on your computer but presented it on another computer, you will empathise with misery I'm talking about here.

Cons: I'd love to be able to add gifs to my slideshow presentations.

I added one at the end of a presentation once and it merely showed up as an image, and not a gif. So that was disappointing.

Pros: I love the fact that multiple people can be working on the same slides project at one time. Another great feature is that you can go back and see when edits were made and by who so that everyone is on the same page. It will even tell you all the new edits that have been made since you logged on last so you are easily caught up on the work that has been done by your teammates.

Cons: I do not like that it can be glitchy at times. If too many people are working on the same slides project at a time things do not tend to load correctly. I also do not like how long it took me to upload a video. However, this might have been my faulty internet connection.

Overall: Overall, Google slides has made my life a whole lot easier. As a Physical Therapist doing research I work in teams quite a bit. It is inconvenient to meet up in person to work on a powerpoint. Google Slides has made it so we do not have to be at the same place to work on a project together.

Pros: Slides is subscription free and this was the primary reason,I moved from Powerpoint to Slides.It is Cloud based,allowing me to create and access my slide presentations from everywhere.Also worth noting is how user friendly it is,therefore I had a fast learning curve when I migrated from Powerpoint.

Lastly and very importantly,I like the level of file security I get with Google slides ,in that all of my presentations are saved in the cloud(DRIVE) in real time, and this makes it impossible for me to loose my presentations due to a power -cut ,or even if my PC breaks down suddenly.

Cons: Considering this is subscription free,I do not deem it proper to begin to compare with Powerpoint ,Prezi or any of the other paid presentation tools I have used.

Overall: Google slides is my go-to program anytime I need to create a presentation,either for personal or business use.More importantly too,it has saved me monthly subscription fees for the last three year.

Pros: Googles Slides is one of the few presentation-style programs to be entirely cloud-based, thus allowing an almost seamless ability for teams to work in tandem on the same presentation. Additionally, the comment chains and +users has improved my teams workflow exponentially, due to ease of communicating feedback.

Cons: There is a limited supply of fonts and options for use in presentations, which does tend to streamline presentations, but can be an annoyance for those trained on other programs that have extra bells and whistles.

Pros: Google sides is fairly easy to use. It is really good to use for a presentation in school. It helps organize and present information easily using all sorts of different functions similar to google docs functions.

Cons: Google slides is organized well but finding certain functions can sometimes be difficult. Also, when changing the layout of a slide, it can sometimes mess up information already on a slide.

Overall: Google slides has been very beneficial for me with job presentations and previous school. It is all around a useful tool that can be used in many different ways.

Pros: Google Slide is intuitive and comes with a friendly user interface. I am provided with customization options,albeit limited.It is easy to share my presentations with colleagues working with me on the same project and also I have had very little issues accessing Powerpoint created presentations on my Google Slides.

Cons: Google slides keep me stuck with a similar theme and background for all my presentations. While uniformity is a good thing, Google slides I think takes it too far.

Overall: I use Google Slides to put project ideas and metrics into presentations which I share with my colleagues at team meetings. Google Slides enable me complete these presentations quickly,as I simply collaborate with my other team members in real time : doesn't matter even if I am not physically within the office.

Google slides integration with other Google apps. only makes it easier to save and create my presentations ,import files into my presentations and share my presentations with no hassle.

Pros: For me the huge pros is that this tool is Google drive based (cloud) and it may be edited and vieved by couple people at the same time. Those features are the most importtant ones as I prefer not to be connected to the device I am working on and be able to work from many places wherever broadband connection is available. Also, possibility of working and editing by couple of people at the same time is perfect feature for time saving as we can create presentations at the same moment and we do not have to glue the information together as in some other popular tools.

Cons: The one and important issue I do not like about Google Slides that it lacks some important features other popular tools have.

Overall: As a person who works remotely I realy like all the tools which are cloud based and can be edited by the couple of people at the very same time. It helps save time --> money.

Pros:

What I really love about Google Slides is that it is free and available for everyone. It can be accessed from any web browser but there are also Android and iPhone apps available. Although Google Slides might not have as many features as Microsoft PowerPoint or LibreOffice Impress, it has every necessary tool needed to make convincing slideshows. If available tools won't satisfy, there is also an extension library containing user-made extensions.

I think Google Slides is a great tool for students. Sharing slideshows is really easy and students can create and edit slides together. Adding and managing new project members is easy and members can chat with each other with ease. Members can also check version history to see who is responsible for the edits.

Cons:

The biggest problem with Google Slides is that users need an internet connection in order to access their presentations from the cloud. Because Google Slides is a website, it can be slow to open compared to desktop applications and importing existing projects can be complicated for new users. Some people also dislike that Google Slides requires a Google account.

Pros: As with all Google apps, what I like best is how multiple people on my team can be working with and editing at the same time. However, more recently I am so impressed with the offline capability of Google Slides and the ability to edit even when I do not have internet access. It has many (not all) of the features and functionality of the slide program I have used in the past, but with more modern templates and features that you'd expect from google software.

Cons: When making slides to share with co-workers and colleagues, Google Slides is all I need. However, if I needed to create a more advanced and impressive presentation, I'd work in PowerPoint because it does have more features and better templates.

Overall: It's easy to get started if you have a google account, and completely free, so there's nothing to lose.

Pros: Creating slides is part of my daily tasks, which then I use for reports and representations. Google Slides allows easy sharing and creation of presentations. Presentations are highly customizable in Google Slides with more chances to make the slides more personal. Templates are also present for those cases where a report must be done immediately. Sharing these slides are then possible with Google Drive since it integrates with each other so well. Everything seems to be easier with Google Products.

Cons: It is hard to admit that Microsoft Powerpoint is indeed more powerful when it comes to presentation creations. With Google Slides, there are major limitations that can be easily done with Microsoft Powerpoint, such as more organized templates and easier attachment features.

Google Slides has encouraged me to collaborate more with my team members in the workplace,as collaboration enhances productivity and reduces the amount of duration expended creating ,editing presentations.

Cons: Google Slides obviously does not offer too many eye-catchy presentation templates ,however considering this is free and cloud/web based .I will just say the good part of Slide far ourweighs the bad sides.

Overall: Google slide has ensured faster work time on team presentations ,while also ensuring team presentations can go on without every concerned team member needing to be in the office physically.

Pros: The accessibility of Google Slides is something that makes it more preferred and reliable. Most of us will want to complete their tasks while at home, and for Google Slides, one can do this. The product is so light, and it hardly faces errors while being run. It is cheap, compared to other presentation tools.

Cons: Nonetheless, the vendor should still implement significant improvements for this product to reach the standards. For instance, Google Slides is far behind the PowerPoint, as it lacks some basic features that are found in the PowerPoint Pack. Furthermore, Google Slides lacks a friendly user design, and this makes it less competitive.

Overall: Eventually, we use Google Slides in our firm to prepare, edit, and share presentations, something that improves our productivity. The process of implementing Google Slides is so small, and thus, favoring its usability. It is an easy and light tool, and therefore, it doesn't demand huge space in your device.

The ability to collaborate is a nice feature to have on a presentation program and also of great importance is the fact that Google slides is free to use.

Cons: On every occasion when I have opened a Powerpoint presentation on Google slides, I have lost the formatting of such documents and always have to re-modify the document on Google slides.

Overall: Google slides let me collaborate with my colleagues on team presentations. Collaboration via Google slides has improved how fast we are able to create and edit team presentations ,while also improving the quality of presentations we create ,since multiple heads working together are obviously better than one.

Pros: It's like you are never going to miss a single presentation you've done. Google Slides is an online presentation editor and a store for me as I have all my presentations uploaded there. Also, it's a cost-effective way to prepare your next presentation. It'll not be the same as some higher priced products, but it will do the job when you most needed it.

Cons: Google Slides could be a misery without a stable internet connection. Auto save feature is available but with a single point of power failure you could lose your hard work. This is about a minute (or less) of work I hope, but the importance depend on how valuable your time is.

Pros: Google Slides is able to be used on nearly every platform and browser. It enables users to create presentations without paying for expensive software and to work collaboratively from any location. Slides works in tandem with cloud technology to also store and share documents with ease. I like the power afforded by Slides.

Cons: The only drawback to Google Slides can be seen in its differences when compared to competitors. The functionality is the same, but the way in which tasks are carried out is different. Because of this learning curve, it takes me longer to create a presentation with transitions and effects than it would in other software, and sometimes the formatting will change if converted to or from other file formats.

Overall: I've used this software for over a year and have been pleased with the ability to collaborate with other presenters who are unable to physically meet during planning and creation.

Pros: When I first started using Google Slides it seemed some kind of futuristic way of creating presentations. Before Google Slides I was using Powerpoint but Google Slides added some amusement and made Google Slides different from traditional presentation softwares. Now you can edit or create presentations with your friends in real time. It is my most liked feature. All joined users can work at the same time, add or edit slides, chat and comment. It saves my time and increases creativity. Now whenever there is a new project I use Google Slides. Another great feature is that I can convert Google Slides to PowerPoint presentation or vice versa.

Cons: Transferring traditional presentation experience into the web is challenging but there are some features which needs to be added. For example converting slides into videos. Maybe it is possible with some add-ons but couldn't find them.

Overall: Although there are some insufficiencies I like Google Slides and will continue using it. Because Google always improves customer satisfaction with new updates.

We can share it using Google Drive which can be accessed by having a Gmail account, and everyone has Gmail accounts. It is highly accessible and easy to use.

Cons: There are many template designs to choose from but after a while, it seems repetitive. Since using templates is a faster way of creating slides, it might be a little helpful for additional template designs.

Pros: It's free and online so when working with it all my work is auto-saved and can be shared instantly. It allows many individuals to work on the same project just as it's the cast for all of google cloud-based applications.

It's kinda easier and swifter to create presentations than Powerpoint and is very very user friendly

Cons: Its transitions, embedded video and music options and animations are limited.

It can be used for casual presentations but when wanting to create more formal and sophisticated ones it just doesn't cut it.

And for sure it requires internet connection to work as it's online so without internet you can't use it.

Overall: Amazingly convenient with simple and casual presentations yet with more sophisticated ones it may not be the best option

Pros: Google Sheets is a free alternative to the Microsoft PowerPoint product which offers the same features with additional others. For instance I think Google Sheets offers a better platform to share information and allow others to access and edit such information.

Cons: Google Slides integrates so well with other Google software and products.

Google Slides is the (almost) perfect slideshow maker.

Pros: Google Slides is nearly perfect in the way it creates and presents slideshows. The user interface is simple to allow almost anyone to use it, while maintaining several features and functionality. Slides works in the cloud too, so all of your work is saved quickly, and without you even having to think about it.

Cons: Google Slides is only online, which eliminates the ability to do offline work, unless you agree to turning on offline editing. This is a bit of a problem with the frequency that Slides saves your work, you can end up with a couple gigabytes of extra data on your hands.

Overall: Slides is perfect for our work environment. With the implementation of Google Drive, we can create slides, send them to a reviewer to tweak, and have them sent back, all within the hour.

Pros: Nowadays, it is kind a "must have" to access and manipulate your documents in cloud. Besides other documents, it was always complex task with presentations. Google Slides allow users to create, edit and run their presentations online. They are integrated in Google Apps for Work, but they are also available in free Google account. Once you create you presentations, they are saved in drive and easily accessible by any time. If you are using them, it is easy to be prepared for next presentation, no matter did you expect it or not. All you need is an internet link, and floor is yours. No more need for USB sticks. Moreover, if your presentation device supports Chromecas, then, you can easily play them even from your mobile phone.

Cons: They lack some advances functions, such as different types of transitions, some specialized presentation effects and functions. Once when you export them to .pptx file, it can hardly be read properly.

Overall: Simple and great tool where you can create, edit, read and present your presentation on the go.

Pros: My favorite thing about google slides is how easy it makes group presentations. It has the live editing feature which is great because you can see what others are working on or have done already. Slides also comes with several themes and templates which makes creating slideshows even easier for those who aren't great at designing. Also makes transporting presentations easy, as all you have to do is sign in.

Cons: That it is mandatory to have a gmail account to view or edit.

Overall: Overall, google slides has made my professional life and school life much simpler. Working on group projects has always been something I've dreaded, but this allows many people to work on something at the same time, or at their own free will and schedule.

Pros: I liked the fact that google slides has all the options of its competitor, PowerPoint, but it has one great advantage, it's free. It has all the things you would expect from a presentation style software. I love that you can share all of your presentations with anyone that has an email address which again is an improvement from its competitor.

Cons: I have realised this with most of googles presentation software, manoeuvrability of photos. When I move images in a slide it can make the writing completely be removed from the slide, even when wrap text is used.

Overall: Overall, Google slides is a great program that I use almost everyday in my business and apart from one minor problem I have with the software it is great.

Pros: It has a series of preset options very useful that allows you to previously define the type of presentation you want to start, from a portfolio to a photo gallery, it is very flexible which allows you to modify and adjust preset elements.

It allows you to insert videos, images and graphics which is very useful to articulate the information.

Cons: Has a range of fixed options, you can not make animated presentations and thus the possibility of inserting effects and complex transitions that give a creative and dynamic aspect is disarticulated.

It does not allow you to download the presentation as an animated or transition file, so you will always have a traditional presentation.

Overall: It is very useful to make the basic presentations of each stage of the project and different phases of the design, since it is easy to access and implement the whole team can use the tool efficiently.

Pros: Collaboration with others on real-time changes is excellent. Simple functionality like the ease of selecting objects in a slide is better than PowerPoint. The storage in Google Drive with all other docs makes the G Suite even more effective.

Cons: Not many complaints. Would like to be able to just start typing and it create a text box.

Overall: I have used PowerPoint forever and definitely had to get dragged into using Google Slides. Ever since my colleagues started creating & sharing everything in Google Slides, I'm a major convert. Putting together sales & marketing collateral takes less time and our output is much higher because it's in a much more collaborative environment than PPT's on each person's computer.

Overall: With Google Slides, I am able to easily share my project ideas with my acquaintances as well as present the ideas in front of an audience from virtually anywhere. Ergo, this software is incredibly convenient for me as I'm constantly out and about doing research and presenting ideas.

I notice minor glitches when in presentation mode that make me trust PowerPoint with the really important stuff.

Overall: My business uses Slides for 99% of our presentations, internal and external. That said, we still have the Microsoft suite, since that is the standard. If I were running my own small business or just a student, I would only use Slides since it's free.

Pros: It's no secret that Google has been building competing software rivaling Microsoft for many years. In Google Slides, Google once again does a deft job at competing with the best of the bullet points to create a competitive product. Our practice has used this software on more than one occasion to compete effectively with outside vendors on stated work product goals. The result? A readable, well organized summary of our team's objectives, all in a beautiful summary.

Cons: No complaints about the functionality, reliability, or sharing ability of this software. Use as often as needed with impressive, easy to view results.

Overall: Bonus for Google, who realizes that I don't need to pay extra for this product, as it's part of the entire Suite of G Suite offerings that are robust, dynamic and ever adaptive the needs of any business, small, medium or large.

The result is a wonderful slide making program that allows seamless collaboration features across team members. I use this often, and since I've discovered it, have been quite pleased with its ease of use, and loads of features and functions.

Cons: There was really nothing I do not like about it.

Sometimes when you export and try and convert the file to another application, formatting issues occur. However that's to be expected, and is rare anyway.

Overall: Google slides has become the standard that our organization uses for creating professional slide presentations.

It had been easy to use, seamless to collaborate, and a welcome tool that I've been happy to migrate to form the traditional slide applications out there.

Pros: I like that Google Slides has several customizable themes to use depending on the environment you'll be presenting to. Additionally, I find it very user friendly and easy to add your own pictures, graphs, etc. You can link videos from Youtube and include presenter notes similarly to PowerPoint but with the added convince of collaborating with other Google users.

Cons: There are less transitions than PowerPoint if that is something that's important to you. Also, there aren't quite as many default themes to choose from.

Overall: I love using Google Slides as a teacher when presenting content to my students. I also love that I can quickly share the Slides with other teachers throughout the district and they can easily share their's with me.

Google Slides is user friendly enough that my 4th graders can use this when presenting their research, and they find it highly engaging!

Pros: The thing that makes Google Slides so valuable is its ability to allow for the creation of spreadsheets and presentations both offline and on. I am not always near a PC that has PowerPoint availability or even internet access, but with Google Slides (which is fully compatible with ppt. format) I can create, edit, and present without needing PowerPoint.

Cons: The only thing I didn't really like about Google Slides is the relative small amount of support that is available if I run into any issues. This can be a danger if you are working without internet access and cannot go find the solution online.

Overall: Overall, Google Slides solves the issue of on the fly presentation or spreadsheet creation. If you happen to forget your file or flash drive and need to present a report to your boss in a couple hours, you can use this program to solve your problem.

Pros: Google Slides made student life so much easier. As a student, group work was a common practice.

Trying to find times for everyone to get together and work on slides was very complicated. Using google slides made our lives so much easier. We were all able to work on it at our own times, and then our group members could view it. Also, we would at times set up a time to all meet online from the comfort of our own home and we were all able to contribute at the same time while discussing/talking on the chat.

Cons: There isn't anything I disliked about this software. It makes it easier and it is smooth to work through.

Pros: Google Slides was a lifesaver during grad school. While some of the finer-tuned controls present in other presentation software are not available in Slides, there are still a wealth of options to play around with. It's incredibly simple to get a professional-looking presentation off the ground by importing a template. And most importantly, multiple users can be editing the same presentation at once. This becomes incredibly important when there's only a day or two before a deadline, and your group needs to put together something quickly but can't meet together physically. I speak from experience.

Also, it's free!

Cons: As mentioned before, other presentation software (which shall rename nameless,) offer a greater deal of control over precise placement of objects within the presentation. Slides still allows for a tremendous amount of customizibility, and if you're okay with not having things in the right spot, then Slides can fit your needs perfectly.

Cons: I don't think the selection of options, though there's a variety, is as extensive as other slide making programs out there. Also, internet connection issues can pop up while editing, yet it's rare. But it can cause times where your edits do not save, which is frustrating.

Cons: Working with images is really annoying. Animations are also limited compared to something like Powerpoint. Not a lot of bells and whistles compared to on desktop software.

Pros: I like the ability to create presentations in a collaborative way, where team members may also edit the presentations. Google Slides provides version history that you can revert to, in case a change is made that is not favorable. This is very useful when there are multiple individuals working on a single project.

Cons: When compared to full presentation designing software, such as PowerPoint, Google Slides provides a basic level of functionality. It does have slide templates, but they are much more limited. However, you can create the presentation in Google and then download it as a PowerPoint file to make enhancements.

Cons: It's online web-based so it needs a fast internet connection and some times you be working with a weak wifi signal at en event or so and need to make a presentation on the go but the weak connection might cause it to restart multiple times or lose some of the unsaved data yet regardless of all, it being web-based has helped me very much many times

Pros: The ability to share Powerpoints live with multiple people.

Links with Google/Gmail account.

Easy to use and send links to colleagues allowing them to work with me.

Saves files online and to the cloud.

Can download the files onto your computer for ease of use.

Cons: Although the user interface is good it does not have the flexibility and amount of options available using Powerpoint however this cannot be shared live.

UI is also quite complex in some cases.

Overall: Very good overall allowing for the sharing and editing Powerpoints with others live as well as allowing you to save files online to your Google Drive.

Pros: 1. It's super easy to use, especially on Apple Computers, where Power Point always is problematic to use.

2. I love the variety of templates, icons and charts which makes my presentations look beautiful.

3. I don't need to worry about freezing screens, or not having saved my presentation when that happens because it's cloud based and saves automatically.

4. I love how I can track who made what changes from the version history section.

Cons: - It's not super easy to replace an existing image with one from my drive, I have to select one image each time I'm replacing an image, it doesn't allow me to save the folder that I'm picking my images from, but I have to go to that folder each time I'm replacing the image.

Love google slides!

Pros: I like the fact that it saves everything automatically the most. It makes it very easy to work wtih colleagues and students without missing a beat.

Cons: I do not like the themes that google slides offers. I often find myself wishing that there were more colors and more ways to layout my slides.

Overall: I use google slides everyday. It is super easy to work with and makes my life as a teacher much easier.

Pros: I love the ability to make comments in a slideshow (you cannot actually do this in PowerPoint), the ease for reviewing and ability to send a very large deck by using a link (vs attachment). It edits easily and quickly.

Cons: I wish that google slides were the same size/ratio aspect as powerpoint slides. When you start working in PPT (or, as is the case for many - start with a branded ppt template that you upload to edit), the different aspects make all the text boxes and design elements shifted. This results in unnecessary work to ensure everything lines up correctly.

Pros: Like most all of the Google/G Suite products, this application is wonderfully easy to use. It's interface/commands are similar to industry standards found in Power Point, making it something easy to pick up quickly. Additionally, the integration with Google Drive is a fantastic feature, allowing presentations to be accessed from the cloud from any internet connected location

Cons: The only limitations I've noticed are minor software differences between Power Point and Slides in terms of layout design, transition functions, and other similar small set-up elements. These have been a "con" for me as a long-term MS Office/Windows user, but this is honestly more a user issue, not a product issue. There really is no better value for the money!

Overall: Through Google Drive and the features of Google Slides, Google combines the off-office pricing and near universal accessibility of Open Office with the cloud capabilities of Office 365 / OneDrive
