Google has found a new way to help presenters communicate better with their audience. The company has launched Slides Q&A globally during a real time presentation by allowing them to ask questions from their mobile, laptops or tablets. The new feature is competitor for Slides and PowerPoint.
Google Introduces Slides Q&A to Help Presenters Connect with their Audiences
According to Google, the new feature was tasted during a presentation by Google Science Fair winner Shree Bose at its New York office. She talked in front of 200 middle-school students generated 170 questions and 800 votes.
How It Works:
Presenters who are using the new feature will see a button in the Slides presenter view to kick off a Q&A session. On mobile phones, 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.
Google is also enhancing the feature of Slides Q & A by allowing speakers to present without the hassle of mics and moderators. The company said that they are currently improving this in two ways for a better and convenient experience.
Besides the Q&A feature, Google also added two new features to Slides that should make giving presentations with the service a bit easier. The first is the ability to present slides to Hangout from an iPhone and iPad; the second is the introduction of a virtual laser pointer on the web for those who present from a computer.
The updates are rolling out globally to the Slides apps on iOS and Android now.
