Google Drive has revolutionised group work, providing tools that multiple people can create and edit simultaneously.

However, many people still prefer to use the Microsoft suite of products when working alone. This can be problematic if you’re using Microsoft PowerPoint to create a presentation, but then want to share it with others to provide feedback or make changes.

Luckily, converting PowerPoint presentations to Google Slides – the PowerPoint equivalent – can be accomplished in a few ways, and the process is easy and simple.

Here’s how to do it.
