Using the familiar tools such as Google Slides is one of the easiest ways to manage content on office displays. Valotalive Google Slides app makes it easy for content managers to use the content that already exists. Edit existing presentations and send them live to office displays with digital signage.
App main features
✔ Show your content, news and announcements on office TVs without making your Slide file public.
✔ With Valotalive secure integration authenticate easily with Google Account.
✔ Choose the right Slides file from your Drive.
✔ Target the content from your Slides from one to multiple displays around the workplace.
NOTE! Valota.live does not recognize hidden slide pages and will show them with the standard pages. If your slides have hidden pages, i.e. you have Skip slides active on the slides deck, those slide pages are shown.
✔ Choose slides using drive file picker
✔ Adjustable time per page
✔ Different page transitions to choose from
✔ Optional feature- highlight the number of pages
