Google has today announced the addition of more than 50 new features to its Google Docs Presentation service, including more advanced and enhanced collaboration features.
Other new features include the highly requested items such as transition effects between slides, animations, new themes to choose from and a new feature which now allows you to incorporate drawings flowcharts and rich data tables into your presentations.
Google is currently rolling out the new features to all users, but if you are in a rush to use them you can activate them right now by clicking on the gear icon in your document list. Simply select ‘Document Settings’. From the editing tab, check the box to “Create new presentations using the latest version of the presentation editor.”
Google explains in their announcement that many of the new features were built using technologies that are only available in modern browsers. So if you’re using an older browser it might be time for you to upgrade if you need to use the latest round of updates.
