It all about teamwork
Comments: My overall experience is that is a great tool for quick, simple presentations for a one time show. For more complex stuff I wouldn't recommended
Pros: What i like the most, is the fact that several things can be done at the same time, the beautiful and stylish templates help to create fast presentations with a high level of professionalism.
Cons: The least I like is the fact that depends on internet with high speeds for optimal functionality, and that can't support complex presentations with different templates.

Useful presentation tool
Comments: I really like to use this program more so than any desktop option that I've seen. It's portable and easily editable.
Pros: The best part of this software is that it automatically saves your changes and is accessible from any computer with internet access. This is useful for when I have to switch classrooms to present lessons. I don't have to carry a flash drive or email myself a presentation. I can also edit the presentation easily WHILE I'm actually presenting it! You can easily add in images and videos. You can change fonts, text boxes and other creative elements as well. I use slides for every lesson even if I'm just displaying the directions for an assignment.
Cons: There are not as many pre-created templates as PowerPoint. You have to upload ones you either find for free or purchase in order to use them (which is easy but time consuming). It is also a little bit more difficult to customize your slides, but I imagine this will continue to be developed as the years go by.

WITH TEMPLATES THAT EVERYONE CAN BE SATISFIED WITH
Pros: I have been looking for a way to enhance my reports and presentations. Everyone is accustomed to the Microsoft Powerpoint, and I am as well, since, I have been using Powerpoint since I can remember. And it is similar to Google Slides. I have heard of Google Slides and its features, I have never considered switching until I have tried it myself. With Google Slides, our team was allowed to discuss our slides and its contents, we can make first-hand corrections while discussing those corrections. It is amazing what technology can do nowadays.
Cons: Microsoft Powerpoint will always be a classic when it comes to slides and presentations, so it is not difficult to make comparisons between the two since they have many similarities. Powerpoint is indeed more user-friendly. And although it provides great features, when it comes to complicated powerpoints, I must say, I will still use Microsoft Powerpoint.

Among many options I decided to make my presentation with this software!
Daniel enrique R.
It is totally online and I can use it through my google account for free.
Its interface is super friendly. Easy to use and intuitive.
I love the style of its editor very well structured creating a comfortable environment
for the creation of the presentations. I am very impressed with the control of changes that the tool has since this is very useful to review
the changes we have made over time to our presentations. It allows to create a link to share the presentation with the audience of our interest.
I do not recommend using it with slow Internet connections, since the work is very heavy.
The presentations that you elaborate with your free version are not private, since they make them public
and locatable through the Internet, is a restriction that we must accept who try this software for free.

Golden Alternative to Powerpoint
Comments: Slides platform gives users 'free-reign' to create slides that are dynamic, great for both developers and designers.
Pros: Among its many great features, Live Present Mode, is one of its beat. This feature lets you control your presentations with your phone, rather than tapping next on the laptop. **Be sure to adjust the setting of your phone's lock-screen and laptop to 'none.' This way you don't have to constantly stop your presentation to enter in your password.
Cons: Where many other powerpoint alternatives offer a plethora of templates, Slides gives none.

Hands down, its my favorite presentation app

Pros: I love the ability to add custom html and css
Cons: Its not easy to add customer css on the free version of the app.

Creative presentation platform with collaboration ability
Pros: Best advantage and difference of Google Slides is collaboration feature which made teamwork possible. Ability to work together at the same time on the same presentation increased creativity and decreased time consuming in a significant level. My main difficulty was lack of ideas when creating a new presentation and it extends project completion time. Thanks to Google Slides now I don't suffer from the lack of ideas and we complete projects before the deadline. The last feature which I like is chatting and commenting feature which made our work more amusing.
Cons: Main insufficiency of Google Slides is internet connection requirement. For some features it requires internet connection, but considering benefits of Google slides this is not big problem.

pleasantly surprised with the quality of the presentations I make with this application.
Comments: I was able to create excellent presentations in a quick and free way so that my students could see them online.
It is easy to use and has a modern appearance.
the grid guide of the editor allows to organize the elements of the slides of simple form.
you can easily access the application with the accounts of your social networks like facebook and google.
You can use it for free and the paid versions are relatively inexpensive for the functionality they offer.
It offers very useful presentation control options like open speaker view, remote control through sms and you can share links to see the live presentation.
It allows inviting collaborators to presentations and assigning them editing and comment permits or just comments as a viewer.
It has few predesigned templates to choose from within the same application that one can take as a model to follow.
Presentations take a little longer to load than with other similar applications.
in the free version you can not export the presentations in any format to see them offline, they can only be shared to see them online.

Wish I Knew About This Tool Sooner
Pros: Extremely easy to use. The best part of this software and others like it on Google's platform is the auto save feature, I can't tell you how many times this has saved my butt.
Cons: Just like any other tool in the Google Drive cache there seems to be a lack of features that you might get if you were to be on any of the Microsoft Office programs.

Alternative to MS PowerPoint
Comments: Works well, does the basics, interfaces with Google Drive so makes sharing easy.
Pros: Slides is a cut down version of Microsoft's PowerPoint which allows you to quickly create a presentation. It does the basics well and is relatively easy to use without training.
Cons: Slides lacks the sophistication of PowerPoint so for more professional, complicated presentations it may fall short of a user's needs. Personally I create highly visual presentations with animations so for me I have found PowerPoint to be more useful.

Found by accident, became a treasured friend
Comments: I started using slides.com because it was the only way to do presentations for my events in altspace VR but it quickly became my favorite presentation option. I use it anywhere I know I will have good wifi.
Pros: By far the biggest benefit of this over other similar software is the robust presenter's view. It has so many more features than anything else, including classic powerpoint. It's also just less complicated looking and easier to use.
Cons: Very very very limited free capacity, have to add paid to get most of the features. Worth it but still a little sneaky.

Good for basic presentations
Comments: I used this system very briefly when collaborating on a project with others across sites. I would not typically recommend this with the amount of free systems available.
Pros: I really like that I can click through the presentation via my cell phone. This is a great feature when traveling. I also like that I can share the presentation and others can make edits remotely. This is good for team projects where people are spread throughout different physical sites. It is a basic system but very user friendly.
Cons: The features are a bit limited. I honestly find that I can do more on Powerpoint than Slides, without paying the monthly cost. The platform is fine, but the cost is a deterrent with so many free systems available. This system also relies on internet access which is not always available at all sites.

Excellent for online presentations!
Pros: It is a tool that you will find online and everything will be saved in a cloud, so you can save the amount of slides or presentations you want, it has the function of sharing, uploading videos, it is very good.
Cons: The only drawback is that if you do not have internet or if your internet is of low quality that is to say slow you will not be able to do anything with this tool, simply that would be your biggest counter.

Good value for your money
Pros: It's easy to collaborate using this product. It also basically works like PowerPoint so the learning curve on use is not too bad.
Cons: The product is a little glitchy when trying to edit slides. On the last presentation I made I had to back out of the app several times because it kept freezing. At least it automatically saves all changes!

Cons: It's not really what I don't like, but due to the number of presentation creation tools that exist, persons might be hesitant to switch and start using Slides. I also like that I can make speaker notes, viewable only to the presenter and I can also export the presentation to PDF.

Easy to use online tool for creating presentations.
Pros: All the functionality you could want. Having it online makes it easy to use if you're swapping between multiple devices.
Cons: On a slow internet connection the software really seizes up. If you're often working from public spaces with variable WiFi speeds this might not be the software for you.
