Overall Satisfaction with Google Slides

We use it across the entire organization, at least amongst any business or engineering-related decisions and plans. It solves similar problems solved with any presentation-based software: communicating ideas and concepts visually, to support business decisions. Google Slides is particularly better with collaboration vs. former best in class Microsoft Powerpoint.
  • Collaboration
  • Presentations
  • Auto-save
  • Comments
  • History tracking
  • Sometimes bugs in changing fonts or other formatting
  • Edit tracking, while good, could still be improved
  • Better basic flow-charting
  • Better UI navigation, specifically around zooming instead of 'enlarging everything in browser'
  • Collaboration
  • Clean presentation
  • Auto-save
  • Packaged with G Suite software
  • Comments
  • Theoretically, more efficient meetings
  • More easily communicate concepts
  • More easily collaborate on presntation/strategy
It has probably around 90% of the common features that are present in PowerPoint but is more appropriate for today's workflows of being online. Conveniently included with GSuite packages often makes it more of a default option over PowerPoint in modern times. I have not listed other flow-chart or diagramming software as, while people use it for these purposes, it cannot compete at all with that type of dedicated software.

Do you think Google Slides delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Google Slides's feature set?


Did Google Slides live up to sales and marketing promises?

Did implementation of Google Slides go as expected?

Would you buy Google Slides again?


The best scenarios are unsurprisingly for presentations: slide decks for communicating concepts, ideas, summaries, etc. It is more of a communication tool than anything. Unfortunately, some assume it is also a good tool for workflow or flowchart diagramming and such, which it is not well suited for. It's good for 'one idea per slide', not an overall map. It's good for collaboration.
