The Google Blog announced yesterday that Google Presentations have now been integrated fully into Google Docs. And it's true! I played around with it. Some screenshots below:

Presentations in Google Docs!

Look at the highlighted menu item. That's new, my friends. Huzzah!

Here are slide layout options:

Look, Slide Options in Google Docs!

You can also upload images, change fonts, change text colors, use background themes, and more.

Search Engine Land reports that Google Docs & Spreadsheets has now been renamed to Google Docs. And forum members are obviously pleased.

So what else is offered? I created a presentation using the new Google Docs and it's available for the entire world to see. Comments welcome. :)

By the way, Nathan Weinberg notes that you can also embed PowerPoint presentations on your website. One thing to note, however, is that there could be security concerns with this in the future. That's why I'm not embedding my slideshow, but I encourage you to watch it. I promise that it's worth it. ;)

Forum discussion continued at Search Engine Roundtable Forums and DigitalPoint Forums.
