Thats an awesome feature :)
I agree, great stuff.
But it'd be great if i'd be also aviable for mobile :)Anyway, it's also great feature for Chrome.
You guys are doin a great job! We thanx you all.we are just waiting Google Drive offline for Linux!
Yep. Waiting for that too
Yeah I cannot explain why you don't release a Linux client asap, considering that Google employees use Linux too!
Hrmm ... this is weird. The current Google Drive API does not allow creating desktop clients (it needs a web server on the clients end to work). Perhaps Google drive for windows also contains a minimal web server that allows access to google drive. Running a secure web server on linux platforms is not trivial hence only users that have access to google app engine / a webserver on the desktops will be able to access Google Drive from their linux desktops. Anyway, they will need to change their API for client end use cases to work without the hassle of a web server. Hard to imagine someone pushing that for linux freeloaders!
Well done Google Apps and Drive teams. This is a very welcome addition.
Just tried this on my Chromebook and it worked really well. A welcome addition to Google Apps. One question, should embedded YouTube video's also work offline within the presentation? Mine did not.
Man I hope you guys eventually have a full blown offline client that can match MS Office. The whole technology industry needs it.Last question. Why is so many Google initiatives and projects still not using Google+? if you don't use it why should the public?
You guys just don't quit with the awesome! Thanks, and keep on rockin'!
You guys just don't quit with the awesome! Thanks, and keep on rockin' !!
Next update for Slides has to be turning our Android devices into a "remote" to scroll through a presentation.
Firefox anytime soon ?
Just tried it out. I was able to open and edit existing presentations while offline, but I was not able to create a new presentation.
You can always create some blank template presentations ready to edit.
Awesome. Presenting offline is huge!
Awesome is the Only word to Google!!
Good , So 2 of the Drive's options are offline , If all the other items are also made offline then there comes a complete alternative for MS-Office suite . Great Work Drive team.............
Do embedded YouTube videos in the Slides also play offline?
I got Google drive to use as additional storage space, but if all I upload to Google drive is also kept in my computer hard disk, I’m stuck: when I fill up my computer disk I can’t go on uploading to Google drive.

This does not work on any slides app on a phone or tablet. You can edit the content but does not go into presentation mode.
I have the same observation. It would be great if slides could present offline rather than stating that "Presentation mode is not available while offline".However, I have found a work-around for my tablet using my Android phone as a temporary hot-spot (including use of ChromeCast connected to someone else's presentation TV). This may work for you...Set up your ChromeCast on your normal (e.g. home) WiFi network.With your tablet connected to your normal WiFi network open the presentation and mark it to "keep offline".Check you can present to the ChromeCast.Now comes the workaround...Turn off your normal WiFi (or go somewhere else).Configure the mobile hotspot on your phone to have the same credentials as your normal WiFi (same SSID and password).Turn the hotspot on. Power up your ChromeCast (connected to the TV in the presentation room you've just walked into). If your phone has a mobile data connection at this point then you are nearly there. On your tablet (or phone) start presenting your slides to the ChromeCast and now you can turn your mobile data OFF.At this point you are running completely offline with no connection to the Internet - just using your phone's WiFi hotspot for a local in-room WiFi network - safe in the knowledge that neither the ChromeCast nor the Tablet attached to your hotspot will consume (huge amounts) of mobile bandwidth.It would be really good if Google would allow a pre-configured ChromeCast to work in an offline manner and Slides to present to it when offline without the above fancy foot-work. However, for now, so long as I can get a mobile data signal for the start of my presentation then I can live with the work around (though there will be an important presentation when this fails me and the trusty HDMI cable will come out along with my laptop).
