Google has updated Slides with support for Google Cast and AirPlay. This is going to make meeting rooms much more fun to use. No more wires.
If you are at school or office using Google Apps, go ahead and ask your admin to get Chromecasts for your meeting rooms. I am sure they will be convinced this time with Google Slides support.
From Google Docs blog:
Now it’s even easier to share your presentations on big screens—whether you’re in a school board meeting, in charge of the slideshow at your best friend’s wedding, or pitching your dream business idea.
With just your phone or tablet and the Slides app, you can present easily to any screen with Chromecast or AirPlay. So you can say goodbye to wires and set-up stress.
When you’re up on the big screen, you can use your smaller screen to advance slides, view speaker notes, and stay on track with a built-in timer. This way you can focus more on telling your story and engaging your audience…instead of on logistics.
