Android devices are one of the most popular business tools, largely because of the increasing number of business oriented apps being released. Earlier this year, Google released standalone versions of their office productivity apps, but one – Slides – was missing. Google said they would release it at a later date, and this June they did exactly that.
As many who use Google Apps know, productivity apps like Slides, Docs, and Sheets are part of Google’s cloud storage app – Drive. If you have used the Drive app on your phone or tablet, you likely also know that you can create, edit, and share documents via this app.
This development is an effort to extend the capabilities of Drive, while simultaneously making it easier for users to access their individual files. For example, if you are a heavy user of Slides it can be a little annoying and time consuming to open the Drive app, search for the file you want, open it, and start editing. Now, if you have the app installed you can open it for immediate access to your related files, in this case Slides.
The key here is to think of the Slides app as a branch of the Google Drive App, as all of your files are still linked to Drive. Create a presentation using the Slides app and it will show up automatically on Google Drive as well as in the app. This app has all the same features as the Drive version, it is just that the app has been specifically written for mobile devices and designed for ease of use.
As we stated above, the main focus of the Slides app is to allow you to create and edit presentations from your Android device. As such, there are a number of useful features:
This app is available now on Google Play. To install it you can:
When you open the app, you should see all of your slides related to your Google account pop up in the app.
