Google just made things a whole lot easier for those using Google Slides to give presentations. Slides now supports Chromecast so setting up is as easy as beaming it to a screen with one of the two.

Take a look:

"Google Slides helps you tell beautiful, meaningful stories. But sometimes, presenting these stories can be a hassle, especially when wires, cables and connectors are needed," says product manager Ajay Surie. "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."

"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," Surie adds. "This way you can focus more on telling your story and engaging your audience...instead of on logistics."

You can cast from the web as well if you're using Chrome and have the Google Cast extension.

For the new functionality, make sure to download the latest update to Google Slides for Android or iOS.
