Pear Deck for Google Slides
Integrating Pear Deck into Google Slides enables you to add interactive questions in your presentation. Once this add-on is enabled, you can edit existing slides or add questions as you create new slides. If you are a teacher, this tool is an excellent addition since you can assess your students’ learning rates and figure out who needs more explanations and who needs to move on.
You can prepare warm-up questions, reflections, drawings, draggable slides, and text or numbered response prompts. The students can join your session from any of the devices using a web browser. When your students send in their responses, you can project them anonymously and discuss them with the rest of the class.
One use gave Pear Deck a five-star rating and said, “5 stars yo!”
Pear Deck has an average score rating of 4.2 stars and has more than 10,000 users.

Presenters often have to move and edit images between browsers and editors before adding them to their slide presentations. Thanks to the integration between Google Slides and Shutterstock Editor, you can access both Shutterstock and non-Shutterstock images directly in your slides. You can also edit the images all within Google Slides.
If you have an existing Shutterstock account and also use Google Slides, you can browse over 150 million images. You can select, preview, edit, and insert high-resolution images in your slides. If you need to add images to your presentation, this tool will save your time and search efforts.
Shutterstock Editor has 91,547 users.
Script Slide for Google Slides
Sometimes, when you prepare a presentation with Google Slides, you have to memorize your presentation and hope that you remember the information. Both activities are time-consuming and reduce the time you have for thinking. If you spend too much time trying to remember the information on the slides, your presentation will seem robotic.
Script Slide is a web-based teleprompter for Google Slides. Instead of reading your speaker notes off the bottom of your laptop screen while switching between slides, Script Slide allows you to export your speaker notes. You can them place your laptop in a comfortable position and use your smartphone as a remote control to move between slides.
Script Slide has an average score rating of 5 stars and 21,070 users.
