"Online collaboration tool based in the cloud"

Comments: In my previous job, we used Google Slides often, maybe 4-5 times a week for two or three hours a day. Overall, things went well with Google Slides, I didn't have any particular complaints except for the difficulty with the rights. The comments that the different people who manage the presentation can leave are also convenient. We used Google Slides for short presentations related to specific projects - for example, new functionality of our medical research software or for some training related to our work.

Pros: Google Slides is Google's platform for creating and managing presentations. As advantages based on my personal experience with Google Slides I would list the following:
- Good integration with other Google products - Gmail, Docs, Drive and others;
- Excellent ability to manage the people who can watch and separately those who can change the presentation;
- Option to load powerpoint presentations on microsoft;
- It is free;
- The platform is in the cloud, which makes it easily accessible for desktop machines and laptops, as well as for mobile devices - phones, tablets, etc .;
- Convenient presentation features - Presenter View, Audience tool - easy to spot questions from the audience

Cons: Sometimes there are some Microsoft PowerPoint presentations that are difficult to insert into Google Slides - shifted slides and the data in the slides themselves are not matched;
- The menus are not very convenient - due to the fact that the platform is online;
- There are no translations into Bulgarian
- Keyboard shortcuts often do not work well - they are not detected that they are pressed;
- Often users' rights are lost and it has happened to me that a manager gives me rights for a presentation, but still I can not open it due to lack of rights

"Great Presentation program on a budget"

Comments: Google Slides is a great program for developing simple and entertaining or informative presentations that really shines in presentation mode which allows for enhanced audience engagements.

Pros: This program is very easy to use and similar in functionality and layout of many of the more expensive presentation programs. My favorite feature is the presenter mode which is very intuitive and has some great features like closed caption, pointer mode, speaker notes, a timer, and audience notes which helps with audience engagement.

Cons: The only drawback is the number of available themes and the transitions. Although there's a large selection of free themes there's just not the same quantity of themes as in an enterprise program. The transitions are a little clunky at times as well and don't give you the flexibility as some of the other presentation programs.

"Google slide! gives me opportunity to work with my teammates for presentation"

Comments: In one sentence, Google slide save our day recently, due to pandemic situation we can not able to complete our thesis work, With awesome online remote access our team mate can access same file from remote area same time and finish our task. It is super easy and efficient, i can make presentation super fast. and share that to anyone easily.

Pros: Google slides has easier interface with multiple work platform, by using this feature with my friends i can prepare my thesis presentation, even they are not close to each other, we just operate out slide separately but we finish in same file. with this software it's dream to us to complete our presentation on time. More over we can access my file and send that to any where we want.

Cons: Due to full online access, without internet access we can operate Google slides. Along with that some time i feel that quality of slide is decrees .

"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

"Just Present It"

Comments: Overall It is really useful software with tiny drawbacks. It would probably fulfil all of your needs without any problems. It is also free and easy to access. The interface is very simple to use so you wouldn't struggle to find the functions you need.

Pros: It is really useful to be able to share a slide show with a colleague or someone else to get help and work together. You can easily access this software through a browser so you don't have to download any programs which is an extremely important pro. And it is also very easy to prepare a slide show since the interface is so simple. As this software is also designed by Google, it allows you to connect your Google Docs and Sheets files. You can also try creating images and saving them in picture format, this is an amazing luxury to have when you don't have access to different software.

Cons: I don't have huge problems with Google Slides, but I think that animation editing could be improved since you don't have many choices to customize. Besides, there is not much you can do when you want to insert a video that is unavailable on Youtube.
