Google Slides is a dynamic, cloud-based presentation program that has started to gain a lot of popularity due to its accessibility and collaborative features. One standout characteristic of Google Slides is the ease with which it allows users to share their presentations. Today, we will go through the steps on how to share Google Slides.
