Google Slides vs Prezi in our news:
2018. Google Slides gets real-time automated captions
Google is adding an interesting new feature to its Slides presentation tool that allows you to enable real-time automated captions to your live presentations. That’s a great feature for those who are hard of hearing or deaf, as well as those who understand better when they can read instead of listen. The feature is now rolling out to all Slides users who use U.S. English as their default language and Chrome as their browser. Over time, Google plans to enable this feature for other languages, too. To turn on this feature you simply press the new “CC” button on the Slides navigation box and then use your computer’s microphone like always.
2016. Google Slides adds Q&A feature to help presenters connect with their audiences
Google has launched a new feature for its presentation service Slides, that allows presenters can to get questions and general feedback from their audience — and audience members can vote for their favorite questions. Presenters who want to use it will see a button in the Slides presenter view to kick off a Q&A session; on mobile, this feature will be behind the “audience tools” button. After that, a link to the custom Q&A for this presentation will appear above the presentation. This feature can make more efficient the Q&A session after a presentation, especially at events where you can assume that everybody in the audience has access to a smartphone or laptop. Not everybody wants to walk up to a microphone and ask a question in front of a huge audience, after all (and the people who do are often a bit too happy to be in front of that audience…).
2015. Google Slides now allows to present from Android phones
Google Slides — the company’s PowerPoint competitor - now lets you present from any Android phone and tablet to a Hangouts video call. From the Slides app, you simply click on the present button, and if the meeting is on your calendar, you can start presenting right away. During your presentation, you can use your phone or tablet to advance slides, see your speaker notes, and keep track of time with the app’s built-in timer (there’s nothing worse than a presentation that runs over, after all). Google also notes that you can still see who is on the call while you are presenting.
2014. Online presentations service Prezi secures $57M
Cloud presentation platform Prezi that has been gradually eating away at Microsoft’s Powerpoint market share for the last few years, has secured a $57 million growth investment. Prezi is cloud-based, meaning you can present from your browser, desktop, iPad, or iPhone and always have the latest version of your work at your fingertips. Prezi’s software is unusual because the presentations it produces aren’t
2011. Google Presentations adds real-time collaboration
Google continues to compete with Zoho and SlideRocket for being the online presentations champion. Today Google rolled out completely new Google Presentations editor. It adds more than 60 new features, but the main one - is the ability to collaborate on a presentation in real-time. Everything is very similar to collaborative tools in Google Docs and Google Spreadsheets that appeared last year: in the right pane you can see who is currently working on the presentation, chat with them. And in the presentation view, you can see what objects the collaborators are currently editing (these object are highlighted with the corresponding colors). And with the help of Google+ Hangouts you can even video chat with colleagues while co-creating the presentation.
2011. Prezi+iPad - ideal presentations at conferences
We continue to find new interesting ways of how iPad (and other tablets) can be used in the Enterprise. We have already mentioned that for executives and sales persons who often go to business meetings iPad can serve as a cool accessory to impress the client. But frankly speaking, nobody will demonstrate presentations on the iPad at these business meetings. Projector or laptop with bigger screen are much more appropriate for this case. But at different exhibitions and conferences, where you can meet many partners and customers, iPad - is an ideal solution to show presentation on the go. Besides, now the spectacular presentation tool has appeared - Prezi for iPad. We have already reviewed Prezi - it's one of the most original and exciting services for online presentations. And on the iPad it looks impressive. It's interesting that presentations are not saved on the tablet, but broadcasted from the Internet. Besides this first version doesn't support video, animation and PDF files. It also doesn't allow to edit presentations - only to demonstrate.
2009. Prezi - fresh look at the Web presentations
When it comes to presentations, the minimalist style, that is usually more appropriate to business applications - not works so fine. Because you want your audience (potential customers) to say "WOW!". That's why besides the classic presentation apps, such as PowerPoint or Google Presentations, there is number of quite succesful alternative presentation tools such as SlideRocket with its incredible flash effects or Second Life with its virtual 3D auditories. The Hungarian start-up Prezi also belongs to this group. It has already gathered a lot of excited reviews, awards and investments. It's coolest feature is that the entire presentation is placed on one large virtual board, and its demonstration - is navigation on this board with dynamic scaling.
