Google on Friday updated Google Slides for Android and iOS with streaming support via Chromecast and AirPlay to your TV.

The update allows you to wirelessly share Google Slides content to the big screen. To do so, all you need is a smartphone or tablet with the Slides app.

To use the new feature, open a presentation in Google Slides, go near a Chromecast device, and hit the cast button. Once your presentation shows up on the TV, you can use your smartphone or tablet to advance slides, view speaker notes, and keep an eye on your pace with the built-in timer.

Up until now, if you wanted to present a Google Slides presentations, you had to use a computer or mirror your mobile device screen.

Users can also bypass the need for a mobile device by installing the Google Cast extension in the Google Chrome web browser. Then just connect to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast device, click the small drop-down arrow on the Present button in your presentation, and select your Chromecast device from the options.

This isn’t a huge update, but it could definitely come in handy…

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
