Google integrates Powerpoint viewer into Gmail

June 12, 2007

New feature in Gmail alert! I just got sent a powerpoint doc and imagine my surprise when there was a ‘view as slideshow’ option (see below)!

Clicking this opened my powerpoint show in a Flash viewer within my browser with left and right next slide controls etc. It works very smoothly and rendered the slides pretty quickly to be honest!

It’s a great first move towards Google having full presentation capabilities, I’m sure this will be a test before they launch a full web based app!
