Preview PowerPoint Files on Google Drive
Google Drive (also known as Google Docs) now let you quickly preview more than 30 file types including PowerPoint presentations (.ppt presentations). This is great to quickly flip between files until you find the one you want. To see a preview of a Google document or .ppt presentation, right-click on the file name and select “preview”. Once the preview window is open, you can click on the arrows on either side to flip to other files. And right from within the preview, you can watch video files or scroll through multi-page documents.
To preview a PowerPoint presentation the process is the same, just need to right click and select Preview. If you don’t have the presentation uploaded to Google Docs, then you can easily Upload a PowerPoint .PPT presentation to the cloud and then it will be automatically converted to Google Drive presentation.
Here is an example showing how the Preview works for one of our templates including 360 feedback template for PowerPoint and hierarchy template. This preview offers a new alternative to open PowerPoint presentations online and an alternative to SlideOnline.com or similar websites.
