Google has been working hard over the last several months to bring more integration between Docs, Sheets and Slides and Microsoft Office files. Google has launched a new Slides app for iOS.
If you have followed Google announcements in recent years, they have told us that they want you to be able to work on any file, with any device, anywhere in the world with Google Drive. With the Slides app for iOS, you can manage all of your Google presentations on your iPhone or iPad, as well as open, create and edit Powerpoint presentations.
Google cites research stating 80% of Microsoft Office licenses are only lightly used, with most users not taking advantage of the full suite available to them. This update is great for those of us who don’t necessarily work with Office files but may sometimes need to view or make changes when working with collaborators.
