Google has announced Google Slides is now available offline, and Spreadsheets will follow soon.
This new offline feature makes Google Slides a complete solution for presenting, removing the need for an offline backup – in the shape of Microsoft Powerpoint – to guard against unreliable internet connections.
If you already have offline editing for Docs enabled, you don’t have to change anything to work with Slides offline. If not, you can turn it on for Slides (and Docs) through your Drive menu. Google also dropped a hint that Google spreadsheets offline is coming soon, watch this space.
