Google has rolled out a couple of small but useful changes to its Keep and Slides products.

First up, Slides now lets you carry out a presentation to a video audience, which means your colleagues on the other side of the world can join in with your presentations the same as people in the room.

To use it, you just need to tap the present button on an Android device and select the video call option – you get to see who is on the call before you begin, too.

On the Keep side of things, Google is now allowing users to export a copy of notes to Google Docs.

If you’re not a user of either service already, the additions probably won’t be enough to make you switch, but existing Slides users will probably welcome the additional mobile options.
