Update: Google Presentations is live now!
Clicking “View as slideshow” opens a new window where you can view the slideshow using Google’s Flash-based player. The URL is actually the same as the “View as HTML” link but with the
disp parameter changed from
disp=vgp. This trick, however, doesn’t seem to work for all Gmail accounts.
Once viewing the slideshow, right-clicking allows you to navigate using the following menu:
Most of those controls are self-explanatory, but the interesting one is “Embed this presentation...” which displays a box similar to the following:
The embed code is still a little buggy – it currently lists “http://mail.google.comhttp://mail.google.com” in the URL – and doesn’t even appear to be working yet. (Oddly, when trying to load the embedded URL, my browser tries to access Google’s internal www.corp.google.com domain, suggesting they’ve not finished testing this feature yet.)
Could this be the first signs of Google’s Presentation application we’ve all been waiting for?
