Is Presently the Final Piece of Google Office?

Filed under: Google, Google Presentations, Presently, Web Apps — Hogg @ 10:33 pm

Google may be working on the final piece of the puzzle to complete their online office suite. There have been reports that deep in the depths of some Google code, a place where only the bravest of geeks dare to venture, that there is evidence of a new Google app code-named “Presently” (think “Writely,” the word-processing app Google bought and turned into Google Docs) possibly the Google version of PowerPoint, a presentations app.

Ionut Alex. Chitu reports that Google is working on a presentation application as part of their existing suites of document tools like Google Docs & Spreadsheets. While tinkering with the Google apps, Ionut found a couple of messages in this file (which doesn’t contain those messages anymore, at least not here) which show that the current name of this application is “Google Presently.”

This would complete Google’s online Office replacement:

While I love Google’s apps for quick and easy documents and spreadsheets, I find myself using OpenOffice for the vast majority of my work. While the convenience of online accessibility and the ability to share and collaborate are really nice, those things are not enough to pull me away from an office suite that has so many more features that I need and use frequently.
