New Google Docs Presentation Features

Many people don't use the presentation software in GoogleDocs, because, frankly, it doesn't have a lot of cool features. Well, guess what? Google has listened to us and added some clamored after features in this latest update.

First of all - more themes to choose from:

Second, you can now LINK to other slides in your presentation. (yay!) I was wishing for this feature myself. The workaround was cumbersome, at best.

What I like best about Google Presentations is that I can embed a slideshow in a LibGuide or other website. Then I can make changes as needed in GoogleDocs and the embed updates smoothly. There's no need to re-upload each time, which is super cool.

There are many more changes in Google Docs, so check it out:
