Google Slides is a versatile presentation software that makes it easy for you to create professional slideshows. Comparable to Microsoft’s Powerpoint, this application allows you to create and store presentation files in your Google Drive, which you can even collaborate on with other Google users.
Once you are done creating a slideshow, you may find yourself in a position where you would like to put that slideshow on your website or blog. Fortunately Google Slides can generate an embed code from one of your presentations which you can then put into a page on your site.
