A Great Alternative to Microsoft Powerpoint

Reviewed on 2019/08/04

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.

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.

Based on my experience, I find that Google Slides is the perfect software for creating successful presentations. It is just as effective as PowerPoint.

Pros

Google Slides offers a wide range of features that I find very interesting for creating visually appealing slides, including adding text, creating shapes, incorporating videos, and other visual elements to ensure high-quality presentations.

I have used Google Slides for over a year and have not found any negative aspects that would cast doubt on the application. The software offers a wide range of features that are highly beneficial.
