Google has finally launched the Presentations component of Google Docs. (Yes, it's now just Google Docs, no longer Google Docs & Spreadsheets.) You can import PowerPoint presentations 10MB or less) or create your own presentations online. Functionality is less than that of PowerPoint, but that's to be expected. Collaboration features, however, make the deal. You and your colleagues can edit a presentation simultaneously and, of course, multiple invitees can view the presentation over the web. When viewing a presentation, everyone can participate in a group chat via Google Talk. Expect additional features to be added in coming weeks and months.
