Google Slides is the ultimate tool for versatility and collaboration. It's uses go so much further than just creating presentations! My favourite use is probably getting students work collaboratively on a template I've made for the planning stages of a task. Using each Slide as a section of the planning, with the requirements for each section pre-populated by me, visually chunks the tasks down for learners and makes it easy for them to see who's working on what section so work can be distributed fairly. I also love the option to hyperlink between Slides, making navigation within particularly busy Slide decks quick and easy for both me and my students.

The live Q+A feature, embedding of animated GIF's, and ability to play YouTube videos from specific point in each Slides make this my favourite presentation tool.
