"Great for teachers/schools"

Comments: I use Google Slides often for small group projects and used it every week during online distance learning. Students were able to work on projects together even though they were at home. I was able to work with the students at the same time that they were online so that I could give constant feedback.

Pros: I love that this product is online and that it can be used by several people at the same time. If you are doing a project and your team members are in other places, it is easy to work online with each other. You can comment, make changes and work as though you are side by side. You can use Google Slides wherever you are - no problem if you forgot to email to it yourself; you don't have to. Wherever you login to your Gmail, you will have access to this product.

Cons: I would love if there were more themes uploaded with the program. However, you are able to go to several different websites and upload a theme that suits you. It's just not as convenient.

"Google Slides: Quick and Easy Meeting Solutions"

Comments: Overall, our business has had a positive experience with Google Slides. We have been able to effectively use it to create, send, and edit presentations for our business meetings. This has also saved plenty of time by negating the necessity to meet in person or over a conference call to discuss the presentation itself. I see no harm in using this as a primary presentation option moving forward as it has become very mainstream and used by many. With as user-friendly as it is, I see no other direction than up for this product.

Pros: We value portability and collaboration in the software that we choose for our business and Google Slides is the epitome of these things. In using this product, we are able to have all of our team members review and edit presentations which makes presentations easier to prepare. Especially because we all are often unable to coordinate our schedules to be together at the same time, we find specific value in these features. Additionally, the features that Google Slides offers allow for a wide variety of presentation styles and effects. There is very little that you cannot do with your presentation using this software which contributes to the very few weak points that this program has. Additionally, because multiple people may be working together on a project, you are able to easily track edits and their editors in the case that an edit needs to be revised.

Cons: Quite honestly, there are very few weak points about this software. However, integrating PowerPoint presentations that are saved as a .ppt file on a computer may have different formatting and may not transfer easily into the Google Slides format. This lack of interoperability is one of a small few weak areas in the software. For example, if you are choosing to edit an old presentation or perhaps one sent from someone who saved it as a .ppt, you might have difficulty or limitations when it comes to importing this to Google Drive.

"The underdog that should be on the top!"

Comments: Google sheets at octane is used for real time collaberation day to day. Google sheets makees life beautiful and easier especially during these work from home days. It is an IT admins dream that this software from Google can bring togethr so many teams with the last amount of IT intevention.

Pros: Google Sheets is so much easier to use and less cluttered than its highest competitors. Google Sheets allows the employees to arenot so computer savvy employees to create company facing presentations with ease. This software is changing the game with its live-action collaboration.

Cons: The sad part about sheets is that financial departments wont migrate and adapt sheets because it lacks the ease of macros which is a core feature in its competitors. Trust me if I as an IT admin could convince our finance department to make 100% migration to G suite I would.

"Weirdly enough, Google Slides is better than Google Docs"

Comments: Good enough to replace PowerPoint for almost any slide show we do, with the exception that to this day, working on PowerPoint native is faster when just mocking something up.

Pros: Cloud based is of course helpful, and the feature set is roughly comparable to Microsoft PowerPoint and in some ways better executed -- the auto-snaps of alignment being an example, along with consistency across browsers.

Cons: * The inability to copy material between browsers
* The inability to choose a color in an image as the transparent color
* The inability to set image compression level or resolution in the app
* add pexels & unsplash integrations
* better multi-select object capabilities
* better master template support

"Amazing FREE app for presentations"

Comments: I have been using this software for years now, ever since we couldn't afford to pay monthly/yearly to have a similar software called Powerpoint, this app has helped me execute all my school presentations with ease, I am truly great full for this software, because without it, I seriously don't know how I would have been able to make my school presentations!

Pros: The number ONE favorite thing that I like about this software is that it is totally FREE!
This software is so similar to another software named Microsoft Powerpoint (not free) that it made me switch from using Powerpoint to simply using this App!
This software allows you to create school o business presentations, it has so many features to decorate your design, it even has lots of wonderful templates to choose from.
You can add animations to you images or texts, and you can also add transitions to your slides.
Another thing that I absolutely love, is the option to create your presentation along with your peer! At the same time! You would be able to see any modification that your partner has made to the design and so can your peer! This feature has made executing group projects an easier task. Finally, another feature worth mentioning, is that fact that you can sync Google Slides with your google account, meaning that ALL of your presentations WILL be saved on your google drive! So that you would never have to worry about loosing your project!

Cons: I love this app, however I do feel like it is missing lots of features to further personalize your presentation, like having a timer to switch between slides, being able to get rid of an images background or even add sounds on the mobile app ect.
