15 Years ago, you probably needed to carry a suitcase loaded with stationery to do anything worthwhile at the office. Today, the situation is entirely different. All you need to do is dip a hand in your pocket and take out your Smartphone. There are tons of awesome apps that allow you to accomplish various office tasks right from the palm of your hand. Whether you need to create a quick memo or make a presentation for your next meeting, your Android phone has got you covered. There are several methods out there that you could use to remotely control your PowerPoint presentation.

a)      Microsoft PowerPoint

You guessed right! Microsoft wasn’t willing to be left behind when it comes to delivering powerful presentation solutions. The company’s Android Microsoft PowerPoint app can be a time-saver. You’ll be able to create bold presentations right from your phone, counting on scores of professionally-designed templates. This way, you can do your best work anywhere.

You can lay out your presentations in either portrait or landscape, as well as take advantage of rich formatting features including animations, transitions, charts and speaker notes. And the Auto-zoom makes it super easy for users to insert, edit or move text boxes and charts without even thinking about a keyboard or mouse. You have the flexibility to change any presentation at any time, and you can access your files from anywhere (OneDrive, Google Drive, SharePoint, Dropox, Box, etc).

b)     Google Slides

Google has been giving Microsoft a run for its money with its cloud-based office solutions. The company’s Google Slides app happens to be another great way to create top line presentations on the go. You can use this app to open, edit and save Microsoft PowerPoint Stuff. You’re also able to collaborate with others so that your team can contribute and add value at the same time. The app automatically saves everything you work on so you don’t really have to worry about losing your work.

Google Slides is actually more popular among Android users than the Microsoft PowerPoint app. It also works with a more diverse range of Android OS versions (starting 4.1) while the Microsoft app does well on devices running Android 4.4 and above.

Either way, these two great apps will have all your presentation needs taken care of.

These simple and fast instructions are all you need to make a quick presentation right from your Android Smartphone. You may find it quite new when just getting started. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to make cool stuff within minutes.
