Google Unveils Presentation Software

Posted on 9.17.2007
Big news in the Web office suite wars today as Google added its presentation software to Google Docs. Users will be able to import existing files or create new files from the slide editor. Slides can be edited, shared, and published using the Google Docs interface, and multiple collaborators can work on a slide deck simultaneously.

Most interesting is that when it's time to share or present, participants can click a link to follow along as the presenter takes the audience through the slideshow. Slideshow participants are connected through Google Talk and can chat about the presentation as they're watching. The presentation feature of Google Docs is available in 25 languages. If you're a Google Apps customer you too will be able to access it as part of Google Docs.

This is pretty big news all around - not only can you edit existing files and create new ones online, you can also collaborate during the process. I don't think anyone saw that coming.
