A Great Alternative to Microsoft Powerpoint

Reviewed on 04/08/2019

Overall, I've had a very positive experience with Google Slides. I think I would prefer Google Slides to Powerpoint, especially because you can access your project from anywhere, since it is on your Google Drive. However, you cannot add to it when you are offline because the changes won't save. Still, it is a great tool for collaborating with others or just sharing your work and presentations with others, so I would definitely recommend this product.

Pros

What I like most about this software is that it works just as well as Microsoft Powerpoint, but it's free. It has basically all of the same features, and the best part is that it is shareable, like the way you can share Google Docs with other people. This has been really helpful when I had to do group projects and work with other people remotely. It was easier for us to collaborate with Google Slides, and then send the project slides to our teachers very easily with just the access to the link.

Cons

I don't think there is anything negative to say or any cons about this software. It has all of the same features as Powerpoint, including templates, themes, and adding special effects or images or anything else. I think it works even better than Powerpoint because it is very easily shareable. I guess the only thing I would say that I "least like" would be that to change anything, you have to be able to use wifi/the Internet, whereas Powerpoint does not work exclusively online.

Overall a positive experience. Been using it for years. It has enough features to do the job without too much noise.

Pros

The most important thing about google slides is the ability to collaborate in real time and online using the tool.

Cons

It's not quite as nice and shiny as some of the competition. Overall the solution is good but sometime the offline abilities let it down.

Microsoft was cheaper but it's tied to active directory. We were already using gmail so adding suite was jjust easier.

Google Slides is good when making slides cooperatively with our colleagues

I only had to use Google Slides (Slides) when I had group project. Otherwise, I actually prefer Microsoft PowerPoint, or Prezi. I actually had so much experience, and fun, working with PPT and Prezi, and they are exceptional in helping me express my ideas in the most accurate way. Sometimes Slides is too simple that I can't use some features to express what I want. For example, the animation features is so limited that I can't make certain effects (fly out, fly in) on my phrases. In short, every feature that Slides has, PPT also has it, and more. The only feature that PPT doesn't have is the sharing and collaboration feature.

Pros

As per title, this site is super convenient when you make group project, that requires the cooperation and team work, where each person has chance to contribute, make changes to the overall project, and the changes will reflect immediately. I like the simple interface and friendly user interface. Especially for people didn't have any prior experience in making good slides before. It's also easy to share to other viewer, and easy to project on the screen. In short, to a beginner, this is an ideal software to use for the presentation.

Cons

The features are so much less compared to Microsoft powerpoint. The animation and effects features is way too simple. Sometimes, if you want to make your slides fancier by adding effects, it's just a pain in the butt and ends up consuming your time more than you could imagine.
When you download the slides on your computer, the format could get messed up sometimes. For example, the bullet points will change their shapes, or bullet points will show up when it's not supposed to be.
The font could also be changed, and PPT will warn you this. And if you're unlucky, it will mess up your whole entire slides and make it become hideous.
It's especially a challenge when creating the objects or drawing shapes on here. This also applies to other products powered by Google.

It has saved me time when having to create presentations with other team members, and what I love the most is that I no longer need to carry a memory stick or my laptop to show my presentation. Is now as simple as logging into my Google account.

Pros

I can create slides very easily, using different formats and save them in the drive, making it easy to open them anywhere.

Cons

One thing only. I have edited slides offline, using images. When I was ready to present during class, some of the images were black, with a small x in the middle. They never load, even with fast-speed internet. It couldn´t solve the problem, and customer support couldn´t help either. This happened twice.

Pros

The customized templates. I like them because I like to address my customers by name and make each one unique rather than a generic general template

Cons

Nothing to dislike really. It's been a good program to me and simple easy to use.
